Brought to you from some of the finest artisanal craftsman and designers in North Carolina, Walter E. Smithee brings their Chicagoland friends the famous works of furniture kings Henerdon. For nearly 70 years, Henerdon has dedicated themselves to building a product line of beautiful wood and upholstery designs for every room. Modern manufacturing unites with hand-made devotion in each of their pieces, and you and your family will be delighted to own and showcase every one of their incredible pieces.



Henredon believes in sold quality craftsmanship. While new manufacturing techniques are used in every piece, you will still find that there is a personal touch to each piece. Walter E. Smithee's expert design staff adores the hand and detail work performed on each piece. Henredon's impeccable craftsmanship carries over to all of their hand applied custom finishes. Their artisans formulate, stain, pad, rub, antique, highlight, and shade every piece - all by hand! We all know that this is an art form, and it requires an expert eye, a craftsman's touch, and the attention to detail that accompanies a North Carolina tradition of perfection. Not only does Henredon provide a mass assortment of top quality fabric in colors, textures and types, but they also provide superior attention to the tailoring details. Floral patterns are centered, stripes are matched on every and any piece. Every fabric selected is stunning as well as comfortable, and we can assure you that you will find carefully balanced compositions. Henerdon knows how to ensure every detail is well thought-out, and well orchestrated.

In this world of mass production, a Henerdon item is truly unique. Henredon offers what no other manufacturer can: unique styling, finishes, veneer selections, accent materials, and product construction techniques that are not commonly found in any marketplace. Henerdon has always taken a leadership role in designing and manufacturing some of the finest furnishings available. They selectively manufacture furniture, and production is based on the demand for the collections and pieces.

Today, for our clients in the Chicago region, the name Henerdon represents the best in discriminating taste. Join us in any one of our locations, whether it is Arlington Heights, Geneva, Glendale Heights, Lincoln Park, Lincolnshire, Merrillville, Naperville, Oak Brook, Orland Park, Skokie, or Vernon Hills, to see Herendon's uncompromisingly stylish and elegant pieces.
