Lexington Home Brands recently donated a suite from its high-end Sligh Home Office brand to the CVCC Foundation, Inc., for use by the Catawba Valley Furniture Academy in its showroom reception area.
Blending vintage design elements with striking transitional lines, the Barton Creek collection features weathered gray driftwood finishes accented by antique pewter hardware and metal accent brackets.
David Sadlowski, Vice President and General Manager of Upholstery Operations, and Bill McBrayer, Human Resources Director, both with Lexington Home Brands, presented the collection to Dr. Garrett D. Hinshaw, CVCC President. McBrayer also serves on the N.C. State Board of Community Colleges. Lexington Home Brands is one of five founding corporate partners that worked with the college to launch the Catawba Valley Furniture Academy to help meet the growing need for skilled furniture craftsmen in the area.
