This week's "Best Of" series features our best selling chairs from our beautiful upholstered furniture line, Lee Industries. For over 40 years, Lee Industries has had a mission to create expertly styled, high-quality home furnishings. All Lee pieces are handcrafted in Newton, NC by their team of craftsmen and women that are experts in their field and take pride in their spectacular workmanship.
During our April visit to the High Point market, our Store Manager, Jennifer and our Assistant Store Manager, Marguerite had the pleasure of spending an entire day at the Lee Industries factory. They were so energized when they came back and eager to share all that they had learned. They were amazed by the skill of the men and women who build the furniture, sew the covers and manage all of the intricacies of such a complex business. Here are some pictures from their visit as well as a highlight of a few of our best selling Lee chair frames and fabrics. Enjoy!

1935-01 Available upholstered or slip covered and also as an optional swivel.
It's a terrific scale for tight spaces but still sits like a larger armchair.
Our 3477-01 (shown on the right) in Bennett Linen is a wonderful pairing of frame and fabric.
|L1367-01 A new take on the classic leather club chair, this frame has a rounded back that just hugs you in and begs you to sit and stay awhile.|
