Barcalounger to produce Row One home theater seating
Larry Thomas -- Furniture Today, November 14, 2013
Row One’s newest home theater offerings include the Ballard seating group.
BEAN STATION, Tenn. — Motion upholstery resource Barcalounger has formed a partnership with Row One, a supplier of home theater seating, to make much of Row One's seating at Barcalounger's new factory in Bean Station.
The product line will be known as Row One by Barcalounger and can be shipped with other Barcalounger products, said Barcalounger President Larry Smith.
"This gets us in the home theater category by partnering with a well-established supplier," Smith said. "With our existing lineup of reclining chairs, motion sofas and sectionals, it makes our company a full seating resource."
He said existing Row One and Barcalounger warehouses in Hickory and Eden, N.C., respectively, are being consolidated into a single warehouse adjacent to the Bean Station factory.
Row One, a unit of accent furniture and upholstery resource Jasper Cabinet, also offers television consoles, speaker compartments, wall columns, risers and related items in its home theater program.
At last month's High Point Market, the Row One line was displayed in a showroom adjacent to Barcalounger's new showroom on the 11th floor of the International Home Furnishings Center's Hamilton wing.
