In 1947, our grandfather Charlie Tomkins began manufacturing furniture in the small town of Gallatin, Tennessee. He believed there was a market for solid wood bedroom and dining furniture made to the highest standards of quality, but offered at a value. Value to "Mr. Charlie" did not mean building cheap furniture or cutting corners. Instead, it meant building high-quality, solid wood furniture, but skipping all the expensive overhead and marketing of his competitors, instead relying on building a reputation by word of mouth.
So that is it--Solid Wood, Solid Value, Solid Family Ownership. Solid. Since 1947.
