History:

The White Furniture Co. was founded in 1881 in Mebane, NC. In 1902 the first furniture factory was founded in Catawba County, NC, (later to become the heart of the American furniture and textile industry) and was known as the Hickory Manufacturing Co. Hickory Manufacturing only made bedroom furniture, mostly of quarter-sawn oak, which was very expensive at that time and found in only the finest homes such as the Biltmore Mansion in Asheville, NC.

These two companies operated independently for many years, establishing reputations as premier fine furniture manufacturers. In 1988 they joined forces, consolidating their operations into the Hickory Manufacturing Co. facility in Hickory, NC and became known as the Hickory White Co.

Today:

Hickory White has been a subsidiary of the venerable Sherrill Furniture Co. since 1997, manufacturing case goods and occasional furniture for several divisions of Sherrill Furniture including Hickory White, Lillian August for Hickory White, CTH-Sherrill Occasional, and Mr. & Mrs. Howard for Sherrill Furniture.

Founded in 1944 and still a privately held familyowned business, Sherrill Furniture Co. and its divisions have been a leading supplier of fine home furnishings to Designers and major Furniture Stores throughout the U.S. and Canada. H.W. “Buddy” Sherrill, son of the founder of Sherrill Furniture, remains at the helm today.
