Highland House Furniture---welcome to Joplin, Missouri

We are pleased to be adding another line of upholstered furniture and casegoods to the shop.  We really studied several companies while attending the High Point Market, and for many reasons chose Highland House.
 Here are some photos from their website:


Highland House is made in Hickory, NC, and is owned by Century Furniture.  Their furniture has been  more cottage or English in style for the past several years.  However, they will soon be known for their transitional style---Candice Olson is bringing her designs to Highland House!!  Sadly, Norwalk had to let her go as she wanted to pursue a total furniture line, and they felt casegoods were not something they wanted to tackle.  I have a lot of respect for a company that wanting to stay true to their mission. Making tables, chests and shelving is not the direction Norwalk felt they wanted to go.  It seems to be a very timely decision for Highland House----a well known company that is ready to bring an updated look to their line, and selling casegoods was already familiar ground for them.  Here's a press release from March:

Designer and HGTV personality Candice Olson and Highland House will introduce a licensed furniture collection at Fall High Point Furniture Market.

The Candice Olson collection for Highland House will include between 70 and 80 pieces of upholstery, case goods and occasional accents for living room, family room, dining and bedroom. The collection will showcase Candice Olson's elegant, clean-lined transitional design philosophy and incorporate many of her signature fabrics and finishes.

"We are fortunate to be working with a designer and high-profile HGTV icon of the caliber of Candice Olson," said Parker Goss, Highland House president. "We believe the High Point launch of her new product line will be the product event of the year. Candice's creative energy and design philosophy are an ideal fit for Highland House and the direction the company is taking. We know that consumers as well as dealers will be drawn to Candice's clean, creative transitional designs as well as to the price points we intend to offer with her new product line. And, we are especially pleased to be offering Candice Olson upholstery and case goods under one roof for the first time."

"I have watched and admired Highland House for a long time, and I'm thrilled at the possibilities that lie ahead for my furniture collection with them," Olson said. "Because we live in an era where there's a proliferation of mass-manufactured items, I'm especially impressed with the manufacturing and logistics capabilities at Highland House, where each piece receives the care of true craftsmen. In addition, I’m pleased that both my upholstered furniture and case goods will be produced by the same company and be displayed in one showroom under one umbrella."

Highland House, headquartered in Hickory, N.C., is a wholly owned subsidiary of Century Furniture.
