Maxwell Royal Chair Company was established about 1946. It was known for the use of high
quality woods and fabrics. The company took pride in combining good design and careful
craftsmanship to create elegant traditional furniture. Due to changes in management, the
company had difficulty maintaining quality and began to fail. It was purchased in 1980 by Waters
Furniture of Lenoir, North Carolina. The name Maxwell Royal Chair ceased to exist with the
purchase. The purchasing company failed a few years later.
There are a number of companies in the Hickory area that specialize in repairing quality furniture.
