Grounded in Value
When the doors to Century’s factory opened in 1947, the goal was to keep the business family-run. Today the third generation at the helm remains true to the commitment of quality at the company. They’ve also added a culture of social responsibility. “We want our environment to be healthy for our kids and our employees’ children,” says Comer Wear, director of marketing and granddaughter of Century’s founder.
Whether you’re seeking case goods or upholstered furnishings, any Century item is meant to be an investment that serves not only as a comfortable seat or a handy table but also as a favorite decorative piece. “Granddaddy wanted to design and build furniture that was of such impeccable quality that it brought joy to the people buying it,” Wear says. “He also wanted our artisans to be proud to make it.”
