Our rich history of building quality furniture began in 1972 in the rural town of Taylorsville, N.C. and we will celebrate our 40th anniversary in 2012.
In this region of the United States furniture is more than a business, it is a family tradition. The furniture manufactured in our North Carolina facilities is made the old fashioned way – by hand, with pride.
Craftmaster was the vision of two native North Carolinians, Jack Stokes and Steve Lackey, who had a goal of building the finest quality upholstered furniture in their price range that is fashionable, yet affordable. The company has grown from 20 people to over 500 employees today. Many in the Craftmaster family have been with the company for over 25 years, some from the very beginning. Craftmaster was purchased in May 2006 by Samson Holdings and has continued to grow its business, making Craftmaster one of the most well known upholstery manufacturers in the country.
The work ethic and pride in craftsmanship is alive and well here in the foothills of North Carolina and is evident in every piece of upholstery that is made at our factories. We have over 400,000 square feet of manufacturing and warehousing and are the third largest employer in Alexander County.
Craftmaster is proud to be the excusive upholstery manufacturer of the Better Homes & Gardens Furniture Collection and the Paula Deen Home Collection from the well know celebrity chef.
Custom Order is our strength – our consumers can select the style and fabric that best suits their decorating need and order it through any of our 1,000+ retail dealers around the world and have it in their homes in a short period of time.
