Sherrill Furniture: Hand Made Furniture Just for You

Sherrill Furniture is a North Carolina firm that puts together beautiful furniture using the skills of craftsmen and women who have great pride in their work. The word 'pride' is what’s important here, because people that take pride in what they create always do their best to meet the American tradition of excellence.

With Sherrill furniture, what you see looks good, but it is what you don't see that makes the difference between good looking home furniture and the best of American craftsmanship. So what is it that you do not see that makes the best American furniture endure though the ages and be passed down through the generations?

Here are some of the invisible aspects of true American craftsmanship that are hidden behind the beautiful fabrics that cover them.

The Frame Construction

The most important component of any sofa or chair is the one you don't see - the frame. Just like the human skeleton cannot be seen, the visible structure of a piece of furniture is constructed around a specific framework. The frame not only makes sure that each piece is of the same dimension, but also that there is strength and rigidity in your sofa or chair.

The frame construction of each piece of Sherrill furniture is hand cut and assembled to a precise template, making sure that every piece matches as it should. Sherrill uses traditional carpentry techniques but also applies modern methods where appropriate.

For example, double dowels are used in important structural parts of each piece to ensure that they last - and corner blocks are cut to fit each corner where additional strength is needed. These are glued and screwed for maximum strength. Sherrill Furniture takes the view that if the skeleton, or framework, of a piece of furniture is solid, then what is built around that framework will also be solid. That is a reasonable view to take.

The Upholstery of Sherrill Furniture

Upholstery starts from the frame up! Many believe upholstery starts and finishes with the outer cover that is visible. In fact, that is the end of the process, not the beginning. The upholstery of a piece of furniture is everything that is attached to the frame. Sherrill upholstery begins with the webbing that holds the springs beneath the seat and the back of your chair or sofa.

Webbing is tacked to the fame of the seat from front to back, and side to side, each woven together to produce an almost solid block of highly tensioned webbing as a base for the springs. This is done manually by skilled craftsmen using the tools needed to properly tension the webbing to offer a stable but resilient base to a chair or sofa.

Springs are then attached to the webbing base and tied together with polyester cord to form a solid block of springs that offer the resilience needed to provide a comfortable base when you sit on them. Each cord is securely tacked and attached to the frame for a stable and secure seating platform.

The back of each piece is sprung either by using a series of spiral sinuous wire springs attached directly to the back frame or by means of a 'Marshall' pocketed spring unit, where each spring is held within its own pocket. This is very comfortable, because each spring operates independently of its neighbors.

Sherrill Furniture then has a number of options to cover the springs. Highly resilient urethane cushions are commonly used, but there others available. The fact is that once the frame and the springs are in place, the cushioning has a professional base to lie on, and most methods of cushioning a sofa or a chair will therefore be effective.

Sherrill Furniture Fabrics

Sherrill offers a very wide selection of fabrics for your furniture. In fact, you can choose which fabric you want when you order. You can also choose the nail finishes you prefer: Sherrill uses traditional round headed upholstery nails or tacks on many of their lines, particularly on those upholstered with leather. You can choose the size and appearance of these.

However, it is for their solid construction and range of fabrics that many will buy from Sherrill and no other furniture manufacturer. Not only that, but you can also make use of Sherrill's room planner. You can use this to check out how your choice of furniture will fit into your room, and design your room layout around it.

Sherrill also offers a range of hand-made occasional tables and accent pieces that look good in any setting in your home. If you are looking for an original table for your entrance hall, or something unique to catch your visitor's eye in your living room, then you will find what you are looking for on the Sherrill website. Even that has been designed with their clients in mind!

Sherrill Furniture is proud of its American tradition of skilled workmanship, and has a lot to offer you.
