The 833 line was a collection of crafted antique reproductions marketed through Lexington Furniture beginning in 1990-2010.
Bob Timberlake, a native of North Carolina, is one of the most revered artists living in the state. He has been called “the Andrew Wyeth of the South” because of his devotion to realism and a mentorship with Wyeth during his early days of painting. Timberlake’s ability to capture the essence of a rural North Carolina landscape, or the subtleties of a still life with wildflowers, resonates with viewers and has helped him establish a large and loyal following.
Timberlake attended the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. He is a self-taught artist, and he had his first exhibition at the Hammer Galleries, New York in 1973. President Jimmy Carter named Timberlake the official artist for the “Keep America Beautiful” campaign in 1978. He has since received many additional accolades for his contributions to the arts.
Timberlake is also a successful furniture maker. In 1990, he launched his collection, The World of Bob Timberlake
, a collaboration with Lexington Furniture. Timberlake had designed and built his first dresser at the age of 15, and this lifelong passion for craftsmanship has made The World of Bob Timberlake
into the highest selling furniture collection in the industry.
Abe Cassidy, Jr. is a native of Davidson County. Now retired, Cassidy worked with Bob for over forty years by creating many prototypes and samples for the furniture line. He was an integral part of making the Bob Timberlake designs the most sought after in the world. Cassidy ran a successful shop, “Cassidy’s Antiques and Reproductions,” in Lexington. His furniture pieces are collected throughout North Carolina.
