Every Hancock & Moore original starts with a solid
frame expertly built by our craftsmen. Whether it’s
traditional or contemporary, our frames always come
with double-doweled corners that are reinforced
with corner blocks to ensure the joints will remain
solid over the lifetime of the piece. Hancock & Moore
frames promise uncompromising quality so your
unique piece of furniture can be passed down for
generations to come.
Hancock & Moore’s team of sewers spend countless
hours as apprentices before being entrusted with an
entire chair or sofa. Devoted and passionate about
homing their skills, they pay special attention to the
quality and look of our fine furniture collections,
from decorative top-stitching to sewing seams with
heavy-duty upholstery machines.
EIGHT-WAY HAND TIE
Since 1981, Hancock & Moore has practiced
eight-way hand-tied coil construction. As creators
of America’s finest furniture, we remain one of the
only manufacturers to continue that practice. This
time-consuming technique—typically found in
antique chairs—involves tying each seat coil with
heavy cord, using at least eight knots. The result is
firm but comfortable support that will last for years.
At Hancock & Moore, sanding means more to us
than simply making a wooden surface smooth to
the touch. Our team of artisans carefully hand-sands
each piece of furniture to enhance its character.
Together with finishing, this process brings out the
deep beauty of the wood. After the frame is built,
sanders refine any rough patches in the wood,
even on areas hidden from view.WWW.HANCOCKANDMOORE.COM
