The Great Blue Heron Company has been in business since 1992 as a high end western furniture and accessory company. Our goal is to set the standard in quality and in design for the western and contemporary western furniture and to offer products that are truly unique. Great Blue Heron upholstery ranges from classically styled oversized frame designs to more contemporary and minimal, all of which are upholstered with rich, enduring fine leathers, fabrics, and hair-on-hides.
Great Blue Heron proudly manufactures most of our upholstered furniture right here in Texas.
Quality in furniture starts with the frame. Our frames are built exclusively of hard woods, primarily kiln dried Oak. Many companies use softer woods like Pine or Cedar for cost savings, and some companies advertise "hard wood" frames which generally refers to Poplar. None of these woods have the rigidity or performance of our solid frames. You will have no issues with cracking, splitting, or shrinking frames, problems that many times plague furniture pieces with frames of lesser woods or imported products using woods that have not been properly dried.
Most of our pieces are built using either No-Sag Springs or 8 way hand tied spring systems, these types of springs allow customization of frame sizes and performs better than the drop-in units made overseas. There are several types of cushion materials we use depending on preference and piece, please contact us for specifics.
The Great Blue Heron Company sources leathers and hides from all over the world and we go to great lengths to procure only the highest quality leathers. All of our leathers are full or top grain, and all of our hair on hides are tanned in Brazil at a tannery that is widely recognized as the best tannery of its type in the world.
We also build and design our own line of floral arrangements and home accessories including lamps and wall decor. In addition, we have brought on a carefully selected set of products to compliment our core products and offer a wider range of great products to our customers.
