For over 20 years Wellington’s fine leather furniture has been offering the Bradington Young leather furniture collection at substantial savings of up to 50%. Bradington Young furniture is based and built in the Foothills of North Carolina. This is very close to Boone, North Carolina where Wellington’s leather furniture first opened its doors in 1982. Being so close to the furniture factory we have been able to establish a great personal and professional relationship with the employees. They like us are hardworking Tar heels that take tremendous pride in their skills. A relationship built over 2 decades. There is a mutual respect and it shows. It’s not what you know, it’s who you know!
Like Wellington’s both companies are family owned. Well, Wellington’s is still family owned. Like many other companies have done in the past, Bradington Young furniture has been sold to the much larger Hooker Furniture Corporation. This means changes. Some good things and a few things not so good. The product line has been expanded to have more leather furniture offerings and more types and colors of leather to choose from, but no more real custom options other than wood finish and nail trim. With the expanded leather offerings, they now purchase most all their leather hides from China. Not only have they made changes in suppliers and tanneries where they purchase their leather from, but they no longer offer solid hardwood frames. All their furniture frames are now made using engineered hardwood. This manufacturing technique and the fact that most of their leathers come out of Asia changes their position in today's marketplace. Bradington Young's Married Cover Program is now a common term found within the line-up. This was put in place to allow them to try and compete with lower priced imports. It is an excellent option for folks that are not loyal to the made in the USA furniture label, that are looking for a lower price on some of their more popular recliner styles and complete living room sets. So, if you are looking to really customize a piece of leather furniture in about the same price range as you will find with Bradington Young's American made furniture, you should turn to a more custom leather furniture supplier like McKinley Leather, Leathercraft or even Classic Leather furniture. Each of these companies are still small enough to assist you with your special requests.
Bradington Young has a huge assortment of popular furniture styles as well as a nice selection of traditional favorites and upbeat modern looks. Any of their styles are available in all leather, all fabric or a combination of the two. A delightful addition to their line is called the Collage Collection. This allows the customer to choose from several pre-picked textures of fabrics and leathers to use on most any style. There are even frames they have preselected the combos in this program at a reduced cost. Although it is like their married cover program the Collage Collection is made in North Carolina.
Hooker Upholstery is Bradington Young’s Import furniture. This leather furniture collection is manufactured in China and shipped by container ship to their warehouse in Martinsville, Virginia. This is a collection of some of most popular styles. We all know that furniture made in China is going to cost much less than manufacturing in the USA as the cost of manufacturing is much less in Asia. Now they have also reduced the quality on a few more levels to reach an even lower price point. No 8 way hand tied construction only sinus springs. Also, using only engineered hardwoods instead of a solid hardwood frame they once used. On many items, they are only using top grain leather where you sit only and the outside arms and backs contain vinyl. Hooker Furniture also opted to use materials of less quality in the build to cut costs. This is a promotional product and should be sold and marketed that way. It is labeled as Hooker Furniture not Bradington Young although it is sold through the same dealers.
It’s hard to beat the comfort and quality of a Bradington Young leather recliner or reclining sofa. The price is right and the styles range from your favorite traditional favorites to a more up-to-date look. A quick ship program is also in place to accommodate people looking for a faster delivery time rather than waiting the standard 6-8 weeks for a custom piece to be made. This option is only available for recliners not motion sofas. Using this program there are limitations. But if you can find your color and style it's fast. This is different than the married cover program. The quick ship leather recliner chairs are made in the USA. Escape it all in a cozy, comfy real leather recliner that is made in the America.
