About Our Company

CRAFTED IN THE FOOTHILLS OF NORTH CAROLINA FOR OVER 50 YEARS.

Classic Leather Inc. was founded in 1966 by Thomas H. Shores Sr. in Hickory, NC. Over 280 skilled crafts people from this region apply time-honored techniques to build each piece by hand to your specifications. Vertical integration of our manufacturing in Hickory ensures a consistency in all aspects of our furniture.
For over 50 years, we have devoted ourselves to the manufacturing process and quality of leather upholstery. In those 50+ years, some manufacturing processes have evolved except one. We take immense pride in our 8-way hand-tied seating construction. Time spent honing the craft of 8-way hand-tie brings unsurpassed comfort to your home.
