Hancock & Moore works under the understanding that style comes from within. The company was founded with a simple vision – to craft fine quality leather and upholstered pieces custom-made to fit the customer’s needs. Their attention to detail has taken them to the top in the furniture industry.
Founder Jimmy Moore honed his skills in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina while working in carpentry. From there, he advanced to woodturning and eventually took on design. Jimmy has spent hours fine tuning skills such as carving, stitching and handcrafting leather. Those years in the Blue Ridge Mountains have made him a master artisan able to manipulate solid woods, soft leathers and fine fabrics into signature pieces.
How Hancock & Moore Works their Magic
Hancock & Moore artisans take approximately 80 hours to complete each piece. It starts with a basic frame. The design team at Hancock & Moore uses the best quality, grade A wood to create a solid foundation. From there, they add reinforcements like:
- Double dowel joints
- Corner blocks
- 8-way hand tied coil springs
- Conical shaped springs
- Metal straps
- Coated cord ties
They choose leather material from the top two percent to reduce scratches and scaring. Hydes are aniline dyed to preserve the material then cut with precision and skill. Whether handling fine fabric or top-quality leather, the craftsmen hand mark each pattern by prior to cutting to ensure proper matching. Once cut, they sew the covers to the frames then secured them with nail head trim. Each artesian signs their work with pride.
