    Dixie Furniture Company History

    The Dixie Furniture Company opened in 1901 in Lexington, North Carolina. Henry Link and others opened the company, which eventually became Lexington Furniture Brands.

     

    No, Dixie Furniture Company (the manufacturer of furniture from Lexington, NC) is no longer in business. The company had a history of manufacturing furniture under the Dixie name from 1901 until about 1986-1987. After that time, Lexington Furniture subsumed the Dixie Brand. 

     

    While traditional styles, like Federal style Dixie still had a following, the company also dabbled in “contemporary styles” in the 1950s and 1960s.

    Of course, Dixie made Mid-Century Modern styles that featured clean lines, minimalist profiles and peg legs. Additionally, MCM Dixie dressers may not have any hardware, or it may have very geometric bold handles.
