Hickory White was founded in 1881, but our desire to create the most sought-after home furnishings has never been stronger. Our mission is to empower the creative spirit of the discerning furniture buyer through the highest quality, craftsman produced, fashion-forward home furnishings in the industry with customization capabilities possible only with domestically manufactured goods.
At 140 years of age, Hickory White is believed to be the oldest factory and longest continuously operating case goods manufacturing operation east of the Mississippi River and possibly the entire United States of America.
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 family-owned 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.
