Century Furniture celebrates 75 years

Century Furniture, known for its high-end, custom home furnishings, is celebrating its 75th year anniversary this year.  

The Edison dresser was introduced in the past year.

Founded in 1947 by Harley F. Shuford, the Hickory, North Carolina-based company has strived to be the best furniture company in the world, providing finely crafted luxury furniture with impeccable design and quality and legendary service to its customers, the company said in a news release. Now in its third generation of family ownership, Century, with more than 800 associates, is marking the milestone with special events planned throughout the year to focus on what has made the company successful — its people.  


“We are excited to celebrate this milestone with our associates both past and present,” said Alex Shuford III, president of Century and chief executive officer of the Rock House Farm Family of Brands. “It is increasingly rare to see successful family businesses, and we attribute every year of success to the many hands and hearts that have graced our company through the years. Their dedication and passion have carried us to this moment, and we are excited to build on this foundation and look forward to continued growth and innovation in the years ahead.” (Rock House Farm also includes Hancock & More, Hickory Chair, Highland House, Jessica Charles, Maitland-Smith, Pearson and Cabot Wrenn)

Century is celebrating throughout the year with monthly cash drawings for associates, special gatherings and a photography campaign that centers on imagery of associates. A curated exhibition of these images will be displayed at each of its facilities, as well as during the High Point Market in October.
