Closing The Doors
As of September 2018, Broyhill Furniture has closed its doors. A prominent asset realization firm, SB360 Capital Partners, has acquired Heritage Home Group and the remaining inventory of Thomasville & Co. and Broyhill. A “store closing” event took place in September among the 25 locations in 14 states.
Many opinions are surfacing about the acquisition. SB360 released a statement about their purchase of Broyhill and Heritage when Aaron Miller, Executive Vice President, said, “The Heritage Home brands are really second-to-none in the furniture industry. Thomasville & Co., and Broyhill have a Heritage and recognition that cross generations.”
How It All Began
In 1904, the “Thomasville Chair” was crafted and its legacy began in Thomasville, North Carolina. After the public in the area realized the quality and comfort of the chair, they began to make more requests of the company to make other kinds of furniture. Keeping step with the trends of the day for more than a century, Thomasville grew their legacy by producing premier furniture at affordable prices that transcended generations.
In 1926, James Edgar Broyhill started his first company, The Lenoir Chair Co., in Lenoir, North Carolina. Even though the country was in the middle of the Great Depression and immense economic hardship, his business flourished. In 1937, Broyhill came into management of another family business which he eventually consolidated with The Lenoir Chair Co., creating Broyhill Industries.
A Grateful Farewell
As the doors close to this chapter of premier furniture making and the epitome of American craftsmanship, we remember Broyhill and the many great years we had with them. If you’re lucky enough to be sitting in your living room on a Broyhill chair, sofa, or loveseat, take a moment and appreciate the years of hard work and inspiration that went into its design and production.
