Our Construction

For 60 years, CR Laine has hand-crafted custom upholstery in Hickory, NC through innovative style, comfort, and color. We thoughtfully design and meticulously craft everything we build with a level of comfort that we can proudly stand by, and you can comfortably sit in for years to come. Cutting edge technology joins handmade craftsmanship in an environment that supports our local vendors and community. While we utilize new processes and equipment, we have held true to time-tested premium construction features, including:

Frames are made using 5/4" or thicker kiln-dried select hardwoods and engineered hardwoods with joints that are double-doweled, glued, screwed and blocked on every corner or mortise and tenon construction for rigidity and strength.

Rows of 8-way hand tied double-cone steel coil springs positioned within the frame are supported by a platform of poly webbing and steel bands. Artisans then tie each coil to the frame with fine twine in eight directions creating CR Laine's signature comfortable seating.

Standard seat cushions are constructed with high resiliency soy based foam that is wrapped in fiber and encased in a soft fabric ticking. This reduces abrasion and helps fabric wear longer. Loose back cushions are baffled to hold the filling in place for long lasting comfort.

CR Laine artisans build your upholstery one at a time aligning fabric patterns from top-to-bottom and side-to-side with seamless continuity. Color is the primary method of self-expression in your home. To that end, we curate an eclectic yet cohesive collection of textiles from artisans around the world.

Personalize any exposed wood with our selection of wood stains and multi-application finishes.
