About the Uwharrie Chair Company

About the Name

logoJust 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.

Crafted From Pressure Treated Pine

Outdoor furniture crafted of hand selected, domestically harvested pressure treated solid pine. The wood of choice for ski lodge decks, marina docks, and landscape walks, treated lumber offers distinct advantages over other traditional outdoor materials, it may be stained or painted (or left natural), and it's milled from a renewable resource: plantation grown southern pine. Uwharrie Chair Company uses heavy, one inch thick premium grade lumber kiln dried after it has been treated that has a limited lifetime warrantee against rot, insect infestation and water damage. As the pine ages naturally, you should expect to see some additional loss of paint and some surface cracking. But even as nature matures your furniture, the wood and the product will remain structurally sound for years to come.
