In October 1943, after eight years working with furniture manufacturers in the Carolinas and Virginia as a sales representative of the Reliance Varnish Company and Central Glass Company, Hamilton Louden Bruce decided to try his hand at furniture manufacturing. Leasing a small building for $15.00 per month, he hired two helpers and started to manufacture canvas covered lawn chairs.
Late in 1947, Mr. Bruce dropped the lawn chair line and began to manufacture a group of occasional tables. With a briefcase full of designer's sketches, Mr. Bruce made a quick tour of Eastern retail furniture outlets and came home with $200,000 in orders, this before the first sample tables were made at the plant.
Today, Hammary offers a variety of styles in Occasional Tables, Chairsides, Home Office, Home Entertainment and Hidden Treasures pieces. In addition to tables manufactured from various species of wood, Hammary also carries tables fabricated from metals such as wrought iron, cast iron or cast aluminum with wood, glass tops, or marble.
