What Makes this Set So Special
► True Eight-way hand-tied spring suspension - Built to Last a Lifetime!
Our set has a traditional Hand Knotted Eight-Way, Hand-Tied construction - the ultimate in durability and comfort (view photo). Each spring can move independently in any direction. Superior to "No-Sag" sinuous springs systems (view photo) and machine made "Flexolator"TM suspensions (view photo). Don't be misled by those that tell you sinuous spring and FlexolatorsTM springs are as good as eight-way hand tied systems. Also be aware of sets, often imports, usually available in one color only, constructed with an "Interwoven web base and webbed back construction" (also referred to as "Pirelli Webbing") A webbing-base and back construction is essentially a rubberized material, woven like what you might find on an "old lawn chair." This type of construction usually sags and "bottoms out" within a few years (view photo). Drop in Spring Units are better than sinuous wire springs, but not as good as a true 8 way hand tied system. The drop in unit is not built into the frame. It is a pre-assembled unit attached to the frame by several screws along the top of the frame and usually held in place by bands or wooden rails along the bottom of the frame. The system will sometimes have cording tying the springs to each other and to the sides but the cording has minimal functional value as the springs are held in place by metal clips and the springs cannot move freely (view photo). Another type of drop in unit called a "Soft Luxe"TM Drop in Pocketed Coil system derived from the mattress industry does not have the durability or longevity of a traditional 8 way hand tied spring system. The pocketed system is not built into the frame and as a result does not contribute to the torsional strength of the frame and spring. Essentially it is a preassembled unit comprised of a series of small springs encased in fabric. Typically the wooden frame of the sofa is turned upside down and a polypropylene fabric called "FLW" is stapled in place covering the base of the frame. The frame is turned back over and glue is sprayed on the poly. The pocketed unit is then glued to the Poly. Eight-Way Hand Tied systems are found in only the very best quality sets, from top-end manufacturers and are built to last a lifetime. This system gives the furniture an even comfort level that will not bottom out. Sinuous spring and webbing systems are found in all the low end sets-sofas selling for $399, for example. Sinuous wire, FlexalatorsTM and webbing systems suspensions can only move in one direction, up and down. 8 way tied systems can take hours to build. Sinuous wire springs and drop in units for example can be installed in a few minutes. Because an 8 way tied system is done by hand it is considered to be more reliable. It is not entirely uncommon to hear of an 8 way hand tied sofa holding up for several decades. Some, in fact, can last as long as 50 years. This set is a sizable investment; make sure it will last by choosing the proper construction. Eight-Way Hand Tied construction is especially important in extra deep pieces.

Built in North Carolina!
These frames are milled in the Appalachian Mountains of North Carolina and Virginia. Assembled locally. We use added hardwood stretchers across the base for added structural integrity. Many manufacturers use plywood frames often times referred to as Manufactured Hardwood. Don't be misled by those that tell you a plywood frame is as good as a hardwood frame. Manufactures like to use plywood frames as they are less costly to build. A plywood frame can be cut by a machine called a C and C router in a matter of minutes. Plywood flexes and does not have the rigidify of a hardwood frame. Hardwood frames do not contain the glues and byproducts of a plywood frame. Each frame is bench made by hand by skilled craftsman. The lumber used in this style is supplied by Associated Hardwoods, Inc.
from Sustainable Hardwood Forests
and is part of the Green Initiative
. On occasion some lumber is sourced from sustainable forests in Oregon, Wisconsin and Maine
Each piece features secured yet removable seat cushions and back cushions for ease of cleaning, service and superb seating comfort. This type of cushioning enables you to rotate seat cushions to minimize normal crushing and to fine tune the back padding for individual taste.
