Andrew Pearson Glass
If you walk into any major furniture company’s showroom and see glass, you may be able to guess that the glass incorporated is Andrew Pearson Glass. Located “up the road” in Mount Airy, N.C., Andrew Pearson, a family owned business, has been at market in one way or another for almost 30 years. Perhaps some of your favorite furniture brands best kept secret, they are suppliers of glass in our industry to companies such as Charleston Forge (Market Square 110A). The quality is unmatched from what I've found, and like the other companies on my journey to explore longevity. Andrew Pearson does not disappoint in their effort to provide great innovative design to the individual designer.
Located in IHFC D202, Palecek never ceases to amaze me with new debuts each market while still staying true to their core and mission. I am always inspired by their product that incorporates natural materials and hand craftsmanship. Palecek is a family owned operation and their values of integrity and loyalty shine through their product, attention to detail, and customer service. I never head to market without making sure Palecek is on my list.
Last on my list of companies who truly stand the test of time is Thibaut (Market Square 260). This company has made an attempt to move with the times and be current yet true to their original appeal. For this, I can’t help but stay loyal to them as a buyer just as they have made it their mission to flow with the changing currents.
