Custom Manufactured by the Hoke Furniture Co out of Thurmont, Maryland
The Hoke Furniture was started after world war II (1946) by Mr and Mrs Lloyd Hoke.
It was always Mr. and Mrs. Hoke's dream to own and operate a wood products company. With this vision, the Hoke's put all of their energy and resources into building a new business in Thurmont. Mr. Hoke was 36 years old when he started the business.
The primary resource and asset that contributed to the success of the Hoke Furniture Company was its employees. The Thurmont area and surrounding communities have a long history of families with multiple generations of woodworking craftsman. This combination of skilled talent and new opportunities following WW II made for an excellent proving ground for a new business enterprise like The Hoke Wood Products Company (later renamed as The Hoke Furniture Co.).
Due to market demand and new opportunities with local furniture designers, the product line transitioned from juvenal furniture and lumber products to furniture products. During the 1950's and 1960's, trends in the furniture industry leaned toward a new interest in decorative and ornate furniture styles. A fortuitous combination of designers, marketing professionals, suppliers, plant management, and skilled craftsman fell into place and The Hoke Furniture Company was off and running.
Furniture designs were developed and perfected to meet with the emerging market trends. The company established showrooms in New York City, N.Y., High Point, N.C. and Hickory, N.C. Bedroom and Dining Room Furniture became the specialty products of the company. Designs were primarily that of the French and Italian Provincial Styles. Furniture components included custom veneered table tops, hand carved overlays, specialty hardware and glass, and unique furniture finishes developed especially for the Hoke product line. Many designs were so unique that they were patented.
Much of the furniture manufactured was based on custom orders from furniture buyers representing furniture stores all across the country and abroad. Regular customers were located in major cities in the USA, the Virgin Islands, Europe, and also Saudi Arabia. Custom furniture orders were placed as far as a year in advance.
The Hoke Furniture Co no longer exists due to economic conditions in the late 1970s as its production was of mainly high-end furniture. Finally due to a devastating fire the company closed its doors in 1985.
