Earlier in his career, he was a senior director at Century Furniture, where he worked for 13 and a half years. During that time, he managed the Century case goods segment and its leisure product line and was also senior manager of the Century leisure, office and entertainment lines. He also was product manager of the Century Elegance upholstery division.

He started his career in the industry as a buyer and assistant manager for retailer Ladlow’s Fine Furniture in Scottsdale, Arizona.

For Graham, the move to Our House Designs marks a return to the upholstery segment of the business he was involved in earlier in his career.

Founded 36 years ago, the company produces its line in Hildebran, North Carolina, just west of Hickory.

In addition to sofas and sectionals, it manufacturers accent chairs, recliners, bar stools, ottomans and benches.

While much of the stationary and motion upholstery assortment is in leather, the company also produces fabric upholstery. Styles across the line range from traditional to contemporary.

“I am happy to be a part of a new opportunity where I get to return to my upper-end roots in upholstery,” he told Home News Now, adding that the company has a strong heritage in manufacturing quality furniture.
