Hickory Chair Day #2- This chair is like a handkercheif

Upholstery Plant tour here we come!

The patterns used for the wood pieces that make up the upholstery.

Our favorite employee of the tour: He is in charge of new "UHPOLESTEERY" pieces.

"This chair is like a handkercheif; it is made for showing not blowing"

He can take an engerinerred drawing (see below) and create it! This craft is amazing!

The finishing booths- we love Hickory Chair because of the numerous finishes they can do.

The sofa's waiting in line to be 8-way hand tied.

Two men per sofa to accomplish the 8-way hand tie. I can see me trying to do this I would have a mess!!!

The completed result! This is why it is so comfty and will hold up. Many companies claim to have this feature, but they do not!

Laying out complex fabric patterns before they are cut.

The fabrics waiting to be applied! Looks overwhelming to me!

The seamstresses making the cushion covers; arm covers; skirts; pillows etc.....

One of the very talented upholsters.

"Tufting"- it looks funny from the inside.

Check back tomorrow for more pictures! We have lots more to show!
