Century Furniture Signs Extension with Timberlake
Century Furniture has signed a five-year licensing extension with noted artist Bob Timberlake.
Timberlake and Century originally started working together in April of 2010, and since then, the partnership has resulted in four collections.
“We are pleased to be renewing our partnership with Bob and his team,” said Alex Shuford III, president of Century Furniture. “Mr. Timberlake is amazing with creative energy that is unparalleled. We are excited to continue our license of his brand and to bring to market a lifestyle that is relevant and important in today’s home furnishings market.”
Based in Hickory, N.C., Century is a third generation family managed company. Timberlake based in Lexington, N.C., has been designing furniture for 25 years.
“I can’t express how honored we are to extend the term of our relationship with the finest folks and company in the industry,” Timberlake said. “This will be my family’s 102nd year in home furnishings, and the fifth generation of Timberlakes will be working this market. My grandfather’s quote was: ‘You furnish the wife, we’ll furnish the home.’ We had very high expectations going into this license with Century, which they have exceeded, so we are both looking forward to a bright future together.”
