Hamilton Louden Bruce decided to try his hand at furniture manufacturing in October 1943. Leasing a small building for fifteen dollars a month, he hired two helpers and started to manufacture canvas covered lawn chairs, producing only about 24 chairs a day. Mr. Bruce named the company Hammary, after himself, Hamilton (Ham) and his wife Mary (mary). In 1947, Mr. Bruce dropped the lawn chair line and began to manufacture a group of occasional tables, able to sell $200,000 in orders before even the first sample tables were made at the plant!
Today, Hammary, offers a variety of styles in occasional tables, home office, casual dining and bedroom. Table groups contain an assortment of items such as rectangular, square and oval cocktail tables, end tables, lamp tables and sofa tables in choices of wood or glass tops. 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 or marble tops.
Hammary also boasts a few specialty collections under its name. The Hidden Treasures collection is a group of accent furniture from around the world that greatly complements Hammary’s wide range of occasional furniture. The Design in America series boasts four collections that have been designed for today’s lifestyle and inspired by the many places the National Trust has worked to protect.
