ABOUT

You know that feeling when you see something, and you MUST have it?? Well, that’s exactly what happened when we laid eyes on this striking FIVE PIECE display cabinet! We had to have it to offer to you. It’s by Hooker Furniture, has a Scandinavian Modern vibe, and comes with five separate sections with different functions, and when placed side by side in whichever collaboration you choose, will make a bold and beautiful statement in your home. It is comprised of stunning oak veneer and smoked glass doors that open with the assistance of adjustable hinges with those oh-so-striking and modern round brass plated hinge covers. Two of the units are identical with two large smoked glass doors that open to reveal two clear glass shelves that have plate grooves cut into the glass so if you have fine china or collector plates to display, you won’t need those pesky plate holders! Underneath the shelves, solid brass pulls open three spacious drawers where you can store utensils, books, linens, or whatever you choose to put inside. One of these two units must have been in a sunny spot in its prior home because there is some sun fading on both sides, we think it adds to its character and does not detract from its overall handsome condition…plus you can configure the units in many ways and may not even notice it. There are two other similar units with large smoked glass doors that open to reveal two clear glass shelves, also with plate grooves but the lower sections are different as one has oak veneer doors with brass pulls that open to a wooden shelf and the other has smoked glass doors that open to a clear glass shelf. One unit has two shorter smoked glass doors on the top portion with one clear shelf inside. Below, oak veneer doors with brass pulls open to a wooden shelf inside and in the center of this unit, there is a drop-down door with lights inside and when opened can be used as a desktop or bar! This massive and marvelous display cabinet could also be used as a bookcase or liquor cabinet.  The possibilities are endless! It is awesome in every way.

Hooker Furniture Corporation was formed in 1924 by J. Clyde Hooker, Sr. At the time, the town of Martinsville, Virginia, was experiencing hard times. Hooker, then just 29, suggested launching a furniture factory to provide jobs. Originally called the Bassett-Hooker Furniture Company, it began operations in the same year as another well-known Henry County manufacturer, the Stanley Furniture Co. Clyde Hooker, Sr., had wed Mabel Bassett of the famous Virginia furniture family in 1920. Their son, J. Clyde Hooker, Jr., became president of Hooker Furniture in December 1960 and was named CEO six years later. Clyde Hooker, Jr., joined the company after attending Virginia Military Institute and serving in the military in World War II.  Clyde Hooker, Jr., led the company through decades of change before stepping down from the CEO position in December 2000 and resigning as chairman in 2004 due to health issues. He was succeeded by his nephew, Paul Toms, Jr. During its 80 years of operation, Hooker Furniture Corporation has sought to exhibit integrity in all its relationships with employees, customers, sales representatives, and suppliers. The company has established a strong reputation for providing innovative, quality products at an exceptional value. Hooker Furniture is a leading furniture company is the US.
