We love Century Furniture. We also love Bob Timberlake. So when the announcement was made this morning that Century Furniture will now be producing the Bob Timberlake furniture line, with new product introductions immediately, we were a little giddy here in the office. Linwood Furniture, another one of our valued suppliers, will continue to manufacture a portion of the line, so the whole arrangement keeps it "in the family". What is even more exciting is that this partnership is going to focus on both case goods and upholstery. We have not seen any new upholstery introductions from Timberlake in years, so there is certain to be a huge amount of pent-up creativity on the part of Mr. Timberlake himself (who is also the nicest person you would ever hope to meet)
