King Hickory versus Temple Furniture

Posted by allie1 (My Page) on

I am getting ready to purchase a sofa sectional. I have researched both a King Hickory set and a set made by Temple furniture. Both seem to be a good quality, except the King Hickory seat cushions seem to be less firm. I found alot of customer responses about King Hickory furniture, but not much about Temple. Does anyone have Temple furniture that they could tell me about? I really need some feedback from real folk. Thanks so much.

I've never heard of Temple but you can special order King Hickory with firmer cushions. The upgrade doesn't cost very much.

RE: King Hickory versus Temple Furniture

Temple is located in Maiden NC, about 7 miles or so south of Hickory. Its been a while but last info I have is Temple still uses stick built frames and King Hickory mainly uses engineered plywood.
Almost all upholstery manufactures outsource their cushions to foam fabricators. So many times the cushions are the same, but someone's standard could be another's firmer option, plus their arent that many foam pourers, so they all have about the same types of foam. A good source for info about foam can be found below. The other options are pocketed coil springs and latex, all are upgrades from the standard polyurethane foam and HR is a better grade of polyurethane.

They call it kiln-dried hardwood.

Eight-way hand tied, too.
