The White Furniture Co. was founded in 1881 in Mebane, NC. In 1902 the first furniture factory was founded in Catawba County, NC, (later to become the heart of the American furniture and textile industry) and was known as the Hickory Manufacturing Co. Hickory Manufacturing only made bedroom furniture, mostly of quarter-sawn oak, which was very expensive at that time and found in only the finest homes such as the Biltmore Mansion in Asheville, NC. These two companies operated independently for many years, establishing reputations as premier fine furniture manufacturers.

In 1988 they joined forces, consolidating their operations into the Hickory Manufacturing Co. facility in Hickory, NC and became known as the Hickory White Co.
