Rocking chairs built the old fashioned way at Troutman Chair Company

The craftspeople at Troutman Chair Company have been building rockers, in large part, the same way they’ve always done it since 1924.

In fact, the workers are like family and they say without that, and the pride they have in their work, the chairs wouldn’t have the personality and stability they’re famous for.

We went inside the factory to see how the chairs are assembled and learned how the current owners of the company found themselves in the furniture business when neither of them knew a single thing about making furniture.
