Hinkle Chair Co. has had plenty of practice making its hardwood furniture.
The popular Springfield furniture maker has been around for more than 170 years, producing rocking chairs, benches, children’s furniture, cushions, tables, stools and swings. The company is probably best known for the rocking chairs found on the porches of every Cracker Barrel restaurant which has its national headquarters in Lebanon, Tenn.
A University of Tennessee rocker? Indeed. One of the popular new product lines at Hinkle Chair is custom-painted furniture in the school colors of various universities.
