I purchased a used, in good condition, Bernhardt Hibriten dining room suite about 6 years ago in the Boston area. I paid $1,000 for the set which included 2-piece lighted china cabinet, buffet server, large pedestal table with two 18" leaves, 4 regular and 2 cane-backed captain's chairs. We reupholstered the chairs. Now i'm looking to down-size my life and resell the dining room suite, among other things.

I have a Hibriten LaCourrone collection Kingsize bedroom set including headboard, 2 nightstands and a dresser in the brushed white with green trim color for sale for $600 if anyone is interested.



From Barb, 4/20/2011  9:32 PM

I want to sell my Bernhardt by Hibriten dining room suite that I bought new in 1979 in South Bend, IN. Nothing is broken and all hardware is original. The trestle table top and server top could use refinishing. The trestle table is rectangle with two 18 inch leaves. The buffet server open to reveal a slate top for hot dishes.   Server has a large silverware drawer and two doors with storage space underneath. The china cabinet is two pieces and is lighted, with three shelves of display area. It has two silverware drawers and four doors with storage space underneath. The six suede upholstered chairs with large antique brass tacks consist of two arm and four straightback. My exact same china cabinet and trestle table are up for sale on Ebay right now, although the chairs depicted are different from mine. The price is $1100, and they do not have a buffet server on wheels like I do. If interested, let me know, and thanks for reading!

From Lucinda Simms, 3/15/2011  1:05 PM

I have a beautiful sofa and two chairs that are Hibriten. They are the French Provencial style, white with gold carved wood trim. The sofa is 6'8" long with green belgium made velvet with button tufting on the back. The arm chairs are high back with flo__l/stripe patterned Belgium made velvet ( rose/green). They are approximately 40 years old and purchased in North Carolina. The chairs have minimal wear and some fading, but are in extremely good and solid condition and the couch is in excellent condition with very little use over the years. If interested please contact me at lucindasimms49@yahoo.com

From Laura Robbins Johnston, 3/7/2011  1:15 PM

There were two companies--Hibriten Furniture C0. and Hibriten Chair Co. in Lenoir, N.C. Hibriten Furniture was founded in the 1920's by my great-uncle and Hibriten Chair was founded a few years later by my grandfather. There were three presidents of the company-
Robey C. Robbins--my grandfather
Orrin R. Robbins--my uncle
George C. Robbins--my father
My uncle died in 1970 and my father became president at that time. HFC had become part of Bernhardt Furniture in the late 50s or early 60s. HCC joined them in 1972.
Hibriten Chair Co. was known for its extremely high quality of solid mahogany french reproductions and other styles of furniture. All visible wood was either mahogany or walnut.

From JLR, 2/1/2011  11:42 PM

To the individual who initiated this post: The Robbins Family of Lenoir, NC, Owned Hibriten Furniture, until Orrin Robbins Senior's death. When the family then sold to Bernhardt. Hibriten made high quality furniture. They are responsible for the very first reproductions of any kind in America. Fun Fact: The furniture on the set of Green Acre's was designed by Hibriten.

From Linda Robertson, 1/22/2011  11:35 AM

I am wondering if anyone still has a large 2 pc. Hibriten China Cabinet 68" wide with convex glass on sides, with closed botton cabinet with silver drawer. It has four lights at top with three glass shelves and two additional lights in each curved botton section on each side.   I am wondering the value of it. It is in very good shape. Has anyone sold their china cabinet? It might be hard to sell because of the large size, but wondered what price others have sold for. Linda

Hi all.
We have a vintage Hibriten Chair Co (that's how it's marked on the label), LARGE 4 cushion curved sofa. It's a low back with a golden raised flo__l pattern. it's completely upolstered (no wood shows anywhere) and in good condition with no real signs of wear anywhere. I would say it's from around the 30's or 40's. We are in Albany NY, and I would be interested if anyone out there is interested in the piece. My email is craigergussy on a o l . Thanks

From john, 9/1/2009  3:47 PM

Your best bet for selling your table and chairs is EBay. I say that because I think the best place to maximize your price is on the East Coast. I get a good deal of questions about Hibriten as to value, etc. from people who want to sell the items. I never get a request from anyone who wants to buy some Hibriten items. As you may know Hibriten was bought by Bernhardt Furniture Company somewhere in the early 70’s and after a run closed it down. Hibriten was/is very nice furniture.

How bad is that scratch on the table top? 12″ long! How deep? If it is very shallow it will not be a big problem to fix it up. If it is deep then the whole top may need to be refinished after the scratch is removed. Check with a local woodworker to see what he tells you.

The simplest way for you to move the table and chairs would be at one of the Consignment Stores in the San Jose area. There are several stores in the area from Palo Alto through San Jose. I would expect that you should consider a price for the table and chairs of $1,999. I am assuming that the “mustard” color is the color of the fabric on the chairs and not the color of the wood. If they are slip seats (seats that are upholstered and then screwed/bolted/fastened to the chair) then it is a very simply and inexpensive to re-upholster the chairs. Slip seats will make the set sell very much easier than if each chair was upholstered individually. It is sad that wonderful furniture like Hibriten brings so little on the secondary market. It deserves higher prices because it is fine furniture. Good luck and don’t hesitate to contact me with any additional concerns.

From Shirley, 4/10/2009  12:12 PM

I have my parent's Hibriten bedroom set dated 1/8/45--mahogany/veneer. Double bed head and foot boards, bedside commode, tall dresser, dressing table with the stool and original round mirror, with glass shelf. We had hopes of putting it in a second home, but know now that that isn't going to happen and must find another home for the set. I've began refinishing it (just removing the varnish and wax build up) and the wood veneer is quite pretty underneath all the old stuff). There is no hardware and the clean lines of the pieces probably would have been considered "modern". IMO, the set has the appearance of art deco pieces of an earlier period. Can anyone offer an opinion on a fair value for the set.

From Dan Arons, 4/8/2009  10:36 AM

Are your chairs French? What kind of would are they, and what stain is the wood?

From Marilyn Nogai, 5/14/2008  10:26 AM

I am looking to buy two to four side French Provencial dining room chairs with a cane back made by Flair in Lenoir, North Carolina for Hibriten Furniture Co. 30 years ago. I have the table, 6 side chairs, and two arm chairs and would like more side chairs. If anyone has some chairs for sale, I would like to hear from them. I would pay for the shipping to send them to me.

From LEN, 5/11/2008  5:17 PM

What style is the china cabinet, is it open at the bottom? What style are the chairs, are they cane back or spindle back? Is the wood a fruitwood?

From Robert, 5/7/2008  2:31 PM

For sale-

1970 Hibriten dining room set- table, leafs, 6 chairs, china cabinet. I got this as a gift from my parents a few years ago but I never had room for it. Good condition, a few scratches and could use some new upholstery on the chairs- just a little TLC is all it needs. I's say it's worth roughly $1,000 for the set but I'm open to all resonable offers. I'm located in Rockland County, NY (35 mi. north of NYC) and I have pictures available.

This set was purchased before Bernhardt furniture co. bought Hibriten in the early 70's- something I thought was worth mentioning.

I'll reply to all posts, thanks.

This weekend my wife and I purchased a china cabinet.
It is 80 inches high, 73 inches wide and 16 inches deep in the center thining to 12 inches on each end.
The cabinet has four glass doors with three glass shelves with dish grooves.
The lower part has four doors. The two in the center cover three draws one being for silverware the others for table cloths napkins ect.
The doors on the right and left have one wood shelve in each.
We paid $270.00 from goodwill and this piece looks like it came from the factor yesterday.
Do you have any idea of it's value,or when it was manufactured. I wish I could send a picture.
Well any informatinn would help.

From Russell at Furniture World Magazine, 5/24/2004  10:08 PM

I found a listing in a 1941 issue of FURNITURE WORLD MAGAZINE. Here are some excerpts: "Hibriten Furniture Co., Lenior, NC, manufactures a large line of bedroom suites which are nationally distributed." Colbert L. Robbins is president and general manager of the company... At that time (1930) with others he bought out the old Lenoir Chair Co., changing the name to Hibriten Furniture...His factory occupies over 150,000 square feet of floor space and 325 workers are employed. Since the plant was streamlined with the installation of a conveyer system, potential production is around $1,000,000 annually..." I will post your message so other furninfo.com readers can respond with additional information.
