Unique Rustic Furniture - About Old
In the early 1800's,
as the pioneers crossed the Appalachian Mountains, among the many discoveries they made
was the hickory sapling used to furnish their homes..
In southern Indiana, a newly transplanted North Carolinian, Billy Richardson, began
making hickory chairs. Others studied Richardson's products and banded together in 1892,
producing hickory sapling furniture as a full-time business "Old Hickory" was
When the company incorporated in 1898, a full line of
furniture was available. Shipping across the country to homes and resorts - the
company also began furnishing nearly all of the new national park lodges, including the
Old Faithful Inn at Yellowstone National Park. The dining chairs in the main hall are the
very same chairs shipped and installed in 1906.
Old Hickory combines designs from the company's history along with more contemporary
applications for home. Yet the process of hand-crafting each piece remains very much the
same. Attention to detail, the careful matching of parts, the difficult assembly with
mortise and tenon, and the meticulous hand weaving process, make Old Hickory products
unique, comfortable, and very durable. After one hundred years, old fashioned care
continues at Old Hickory Company, the home of America's genuine, original log furnishings.
