We all enjoy celebrating Labor Day each year. The three day holiday weekend signals us that the last days of summer are upon us. We take to the park, the beach, the mountains or even the backyard with friends and family to cook out and enjoy the day.
We at Pearson are no different. In fact this year we were all ready to celebrate the holiday. We have moved this summer to our new workroom in Hickory, North Carolina. For 73 years we were located in High Point, North Carolina. You just can not imagine the number of trips that have been made transporting bolts of fabric and trims, leather hides, furniture parts, cushions, machines, patterns, standards books along with historical documents, computers and other equipment. People have kept the 90 mile highway busy learning and working to master the couture detailing and inner construction of each Pearson style.
Our new workroom has 103 years of experience making custom, heirloom quality upholstery. Nearly 650 talented craftsmen collaborate each day to create Pearson's fine upholstery. Each day we make the frames, cut luxurious fabrics, install its patented spring-up system and finally hand apply the fabric to the the frame. We are proud to start this new chapter with Pearson. The images shown are few of the pieces made in our workroom last week.
Are you an interior designer or sales associate working in a furniture store? We invite you to come see our new Hickory workroom. Our Hickory University program is open to members of our industry. Completion of the program allows us to award .6 CEU credit hours to members of ASID, IIDA and IDC. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information!
Happy Labor Day everyone!
