Hable® for Hickory Chair

In 2019, Hickory Chair joined sisters, Susan and Katharine Hable, in the celebration of the twentieth anniversary of their company, Hable Construction® with a timely new collection. The new Hable® for Hickory Chair bedroom, dining room and living room pieces complement and extend the dynamic original furniture collection that was launched originally in April 2015. To great acclaim, the Hable® for Hickory Chair fabric collection was originally introduced at the October 2010 market as the industry’s first exclusive textile collection by a furniture manufacturer. The Hable collections have always brought a fresh dimension to Hickory Chair with its mid-century modern and Scandinavian design, world history, travel, contemporary art, and of course, exclusive textiles.

Well-known throughout the trade, Texan sisters and design experts Susan and Katharine became known as leaders in luxury textile design soon after launching their New York City-based textiles company Hable Construction® twenty years ago. Characterized by bold, graphic patterns comprised of abstracted motifs dubbed with colorful, hand-drawn patterns, their sophisticated products are made by skilled artisans who treat their work as a careful craft, employing traditional screen-printing procedures in an old New England factory and woven fabrics in Western North Carolina - making its partnership with N.C.-based, domestic producer Hickory Chair an ideal fit.

While inventive and artistic upholstered furniture designs were to be expected, the new expansive collection spans modern bedroom, dining room and living room designs as well, all with a decidedly global point of view that sit as comfortably in a traditional setting as they do in a modern home or an informal city loft. Inspiration for the new collection was taken from many geographic areas as well as eras where artisans created iconic new forms. World travel, cross-cultural inspiration, contemporary art, and antique modernist furniture all contribute to the aesthetic of this collection. Her eye for detail and clear vision has allowed our talented team to create this exciting new collection of distinctive upholstery and wood products. Her passion for American craftsmanship – both in her textiles and our furniture collection – make for the perfect partnership as over 90% of Hickory Chair’s entire product offering is made in America.
