Uwharrie Chair

Uwharrie Chair Company, Inc., a trusted manufacturer of outdoor/ indoor furniture since 1993 focusing it’s efforts on exceptional comfort, top quality and timeless character. They aspire to shape the outdoor furniture industry by delivering original designs to the highest standards.

As a family owned business located in High Point, NC, they have become a trusted source for handmade product with fast, reliable service who pays careful attention to the needs and expectations of their customers.

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.

Environmental Sustainability

Uwharrie Chair products are crafted from treated southern yellow pine, an American renewable resource. Because treated lumber is pine, the Uwharrie Chair product is no threat to old growth forests. Tropical hardwoods, too often used in the manufacture of imported outdoor products, cannot be replenished as rapidly as domestic pine. The specially developed latex enamel colors used on Uwharrie Chair product are non-toxic and water based.
