Uwharrie Chair Company
Uwharrie Chair Company is one of the leading manufacturers in their industry. About the Name
Just south of the nation's furniture capital, High Point, North Carolina, a small rocky stream meanders through the quiet, rolling countryside. It flows by old farmsteads and new neighborhoods, dead gold mines and living forests, eventually becoming the Uwharrie River (pronounced you-WAH-ree). Ultimately, the water reaches the Uwharrie Mountains, a small range occupied centuries ago by Native Americans DeSoto called the Suala. The name "Uwharrie'' is attributed to them, a conclusion supported by references in John Lawson's 1701 journal documenting a visit to "Heighwarrie''.
Today the Uwharrie Mountains and Uwharrie National Forest are known for their abundance of wildlife, deep recreational lakes, and peaceful, natural beauty. The name is synonymous with rustic charm and relaxation, perhaps the best description of the Original Uwharrie Chair.
About the Material
A number of environmental objections plague most outdoor furniture products. Tropical lumber harvesting devastates rainforests, old growth deforestation threatens endangered species, and plastics disposal harms the environment. Whether or not these alarms are overstated, the concerns behind them are valid. Uwharrie Chair Company offers a simple alternative to imported teak, painted metal or hardwood, and molded plastic: pressure treated pine.
The wood of choice for ski lodge decks, marina docks, and landscape walks, treated lumber offers distinct advantages over other traditional outdoor materials, it may be stained or painted (or left natural), and it's milled from a renewable resource: plantation grown southern pine. Uwharrie Chair Company uses heavy, one inch thick premium grade lumber kiln dried after it has been treated that has a limited lifetime warrantee against rot, insect infestation and water damage. Paints used to coat Uwharrie Chair products are latex enamel.
About the Product
The Original Uwharrie Chair was created to offer not only eco-friendly all-weather seating, but classically styled, comfortably designed outdoor accents. With their rugged good looks and solid construction, the chairs and their companion pieces provide a balance of aesthetic charm and lifestyle integrity.
Investors who desire seating to coordinate with existing surroundings may choose the natural chairs, which can be stained, painted, or left to turn dark over time. Those who prefer a splash of color to enliven their environment may choose a selection from Uwharrie Chair's finish palette. Whatever your choice, the rustically styled outdoor furniture crafted by Uwharrie Chair will provide comfort and character for years to come.
