Kincaid Furniture: Living The American Dream

Monday, February 24th, 2014

Our national tradition has always been “work hard, save your money and you’ll be a success.”  I think that’s true in a lot of cases – not all, by any means – but a lot.  Here’s a little story about the dream coming true… in a roundabout way… but true all the same.

J. Wade Kincaid always wanted to own a grocery store.  Pursuing his dream, he went to work in a western North Carolina furniture factory in 1924 at the age of 14.  Over time, he worked his way up to plant manager, all the while saving for that grocery store.  Finally he quit the factory and opened a grocery store… only to find out that he missed the furniture business!

In 1946, he took $4,900 of his own savings, $4,900 from his father and $200 from his sister and bought a small furniture factory in Hudson, NC.  Kincaid furniture was born, with 24 people manufacturing solid wood cedar armoires and cedar chests at the rate of 20 pieces per day.  A few years later a customer in Virginia asked them to produce a five-piece bedroom suite for their store, and the rest is history.bowen furniture

Kincaid Furniture has been hard at work for the last 66 years, building beautiful solid wood bedroom, dining room and occasional furniture… right here in NC.  Kincaid does source certain items overseas, but the majority is American-made.  In fact, you’ll find families that have had three generations proudly working at Kincaid… and that includes the Kincaid family.  J. Wade’s grandson Steve is the president of the company today.

When it comes to American-made furniture, Kincaid’s quality is rarely matched in the industry – and they insist on the same quality standards for their imported pieces, too!  Bowen Town & Country Furniture is proud to be a licensed Kincaid Shoppe; we display a wide selection of Kincaid bedroom, dining and occasional furniture, all at the great prices Bowen has always been known for.  Come by today and let us show you some great American-made furniture with great Bowen-made prices and service.

Come see us today at Bowen Town & Country Furniture. We are located at 1910 Mooney Street, off Stratford Road…near Hanes Mall.

Palettes by Winesburg

Wednesday, February 19th, 2014

home_imageAmerican Made Furniture, from forest to fabrication. Located in the rolling farmland of Ohio’s Amish country, Palettes by Winesburg is a third generation of lumber specialists who hand-select the best of the cherry, oak, maple, walnut or hickory tree to bring you our quality products. Our family selects and harvests the timber, shapes it in our own sawmill, and then carefully checks it in our own dry kilns. We know the building of solid wood furniture from its roots. Winesburg Lumber had its origins as a two-man logging operation more than three generations ago. As the younger generation became a part of this growing organization they felt that diversification was a path for future success and growth, and so we began building doors and contract grade chairs. This has evolved into one of the most complete custom dining lines in the country. We are proud of the furniture we produce.
