Since 1958, CR Laine has handcrafted upholstery in Hickory, NC where cutting edge technology joins handmade craftsmanship in an environment that supports our local vendors and community.

Handcrafted by Artisans

Our products are handcrafted in the USA with a focus on using American suppliers and local artisans.

Handcrafted to the highest standards, CR Laine artisans build your upholstery one at a time combining new processes and equipment with time-tested premium construction techniques.

Frame rigidity and strength comes from select hardwoods or engineered hardwoods with joints that are either double-doweled, glued, screwed, and blocked on every corner or mortise and tenon construction.

Comfortable seating begins with rows of double-coil steel springs positioned within the frame supported by a platform of poly webbing and steel bands, where applicable. Artisans then tie each coil to the frame with fine twine in eight directions. Eight-way hand-tied suspension is a heritage technique that requires exceptional skill and creates our signature "sit" that is soft, supportive, and flexible.

Seat cushions are constructed with high resiliency soy-based foam that is wrapped in fiber then encased in a soft fabric ticking which reduces abrasion and helps fabric wear longer. Loose back cushions are baffled to hold the fiber in place.

Textiles are pattern-matched aligning the design both top-to-bottom and side-to-side.
