Introducing Uwharrie Company Furniture
North Carolina-based manufacturers Uwharrie Chair Company has a truly one-of-a-kind vision when it comes to outdoor furniture production. The majority of their products are available with frames constructed from either Pressure Treated Pine that's plantation grown and renewable or Premium Polymer made from recycled vinyl.
While anyone who's interested in green living will applaud these eco-friendly options, Uwharrie designs offer plenty of other benefits for consumers. These handcrafted products are also highly customizable; aside from a wide variety of Sherwin Williams paint color options, there are also several choices for finish styles, including unique washed and weathered looks. And best of all, Uwharrie offers a lifetime limited warranty on all of their products, so you can expect to keep this patio furniture in the family for generations.
Below, we'll introduce you to some of the manufacturer's finest collections and provide design ideas for your outdoor space.
With a name like the Original Collection, it's no surprise that this furniture exemplifies Uwharrie's values. Straightforward yet stylish, the collection is notable for featuring patented curved seating that offers maximum comfort, plus oversized arms and angled backs that were designed for all-day relaxation. Our favorite part of the collection just might be this hi-top set which features elevated bar chairs and a unique bar table with interior cooler (we think it's the perfect combination for taking in a sunset over ice cold drinks).
Jarrett Bay Collection
Uwharrie named this collection after the kindred spirits at Jarrett Bay Boatworks, a company that also prizes simple, beautiful craftsmanship that never stands in the way of functionality. Unlike most of Uwharrie's lines, Jarrett Bay furniture is only available with natural pine construction, offering an attractively rustic aesthetic. In order to bring out the collection's homespun charm, you might want to consider choosing a washed finish where less paint is applied in order to give the furniture an antiqued, weathered look.
With selections that range from classic arm chairs to casual backless benches, the Behren's Collection was designed to give you a wealth of options for your outdoor dining space. Whether you're looking to create a standard four-person patio dining layout or an extra-large set for gathering with friends and hosting parties, this line will have something to help you plan the perfect arrangement. Plus, Behren's dining tables come in three sizes, offering options for small, medium and large patios.
Perhaps Uwharrie's most unexpected line, the Wave Collection is upbeat, playful and designed for good times outdoors. It's easy to see where this collection gets its name, as every chair and settee sports a daring wave-shaped back style. Whether you're furnishing a poolside space, commercial resort or easygoing patio arrangement, Wave styles will make a standout choice. This lounge furniture looks especially appealing in cheery hues that highlight the collection's vibrant personality, so don't be afraid to go bright and bold when choosing a custom finish color.
The Westport Collection is Uwharrie's take on transitional outdoor furniture, and it will harmonize with traditional outdoor porches, modern patios and just about anything in between. Strong lines and boxy silhouettes give the collection a slightly contemporary edge, but more classic vertical back slats nicely balance these design elements. While the Westport line is home to standard lounge seating pieces, what really sets it apart are the sectional seating units. Made to be rearranged and joined in a variety of combinations, these sectionals allow you to take a creative, open-ended approach to your outdoor layout.
All Southern Yellow Pine utilized by Uwharrie is hand-selected by the manufacturer's experts to ensure that only the finest pieces makes the cut. Plus, it's harvested from plantations, which means it's a renewable resource. The Plantation Collection pays tribute to the lumber that helps make the company's products so special, displaying a traditional wingback design that's effortless, elegant and timeless. The vintage feel of the collection is an ideal match for Uwharrie's old-fashioned emphasis on quality materials and outstanding workmanship.
