13 Made-to-Last Pieces by a North Carolina Furniture Company You Should Know

February 25, 2020

Here on the Remodelista team, we’re often lamenting the rise of disposable furniture. In a time of mass production and throwaway culture, it’s hard to know how furniture is made, and whether a sofa will hold up over decades of sitting or whether it’ll start to sag—or, worse, collapse—after just a few years.

Fortunately there are companies like Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams making furniture with a focus on superior craftsmanship and quality. Founded in the US in 1989 and based on 70 acres in Taylorsville, North Carolina, the company considers the furniture they make “hand-made  love,” employing skilled artisans—sometimes second- and third-generation furniture makers—to craft each piece of upholstery. They say, in fact, that more than 75 hands touch every piece. Plus, as members of the Sustainable Furnishings Council, the company is eco-friendly (and kid- and pet-friendly, too).

Lately we’ve been admiring the company’s spring 2020 collection, with down-to-earth colorways and natural materials inspired by desert landscapes, all sure to last. Take a look at a few new pieces (and their behind-the-scenes video, too).

The lounge-like Hunter Sofa is designed with comfort in mind and is available in a wide selection of fabrics, including low-maintenance Sunbrella performance fabric, shown here. Alongside is the Tremont Rectangular Cocktail Table, crafted from reclaimed teak roots salvaged from trees harvested for lumber. And at left, the petite Poppy Swivel Chairs.

A desert-hued offering: the sculptural Jewel Swivel Chair, shown in camel velvet.

The Margaux Side Chairs are comfortably curved and set on casters for ease of movement; the rich Moore & Giles leather shown here, called Mont Blanc Fern, will patina over time. The chairs are set around the Modern Round Dining Table, which is available in a range of sizes, finishes, and tabletops, with a Perla Chandelier overhead.

The hand-sewn Butler Channeled Tufted Platform Bed, shown here in graphite velvet, adds long-lasting luxury to the bedroom. At the foot of the bed is the petite Margaux Swivel Ottoman in silver Taos fabric.
