Read on for a detailed review of Kincaid furniture at La-Z-Boy.
What is Kincaid?
The inception of Kincaid Furniture dates back to 1924 when J.Wade Kincaid began his furniture career. At the age of 14, Kincaid was assembling drawers for a small western North Carolina furniture company. By 1964, he had purchased a small furniture company in Hudson, North Carolina. With ingenuity and hard work, Kincaid Furniture was born.
The company started by producing solid wood cedar chests and wardrobes with only 24 employees. High-quality solid wood furniture became Kincaid’s niche, along with personalized service. Kincaid Furniture became a public company in 1983 with exponential growth, including new facilities and national expansion.
In 1988, La-Z-Boy Incorporated purchased Kincaid Furniture, welcoming them to the La-Z-Boy family. Such top-quality solid wood furniture coordinated effortlessly with La-Z-Boy’s exceptionally comfortable upholstery.
Operating out of western North Carolina, Kincaid Furniture continues to offer a broad range of beautiful solid wood products. Furniture that is built for long-lasting strength and intended to be treated as family heirlooms.

Further, she says that “the depth of product in each collection is significant”. Each collection offers a beautifully cohesive look with a range of choices in pieces, sizes, and finishes. As a designer, such choice makes for effortless depth of design and visual interest amongst one cohesive style.

Solid Wood Construction
What sets Kincaid Furniture apart from many other manufacturers is the solid wood construction of its products.
Genuine wood is used on all case good exterior panels. As such, Kincaid does not use any veneers in the making of their products as veneers often crack and peel over time.
To keep with traditional styling, materials, and finish, Kincaid Furniture carefully selects solid wood species with attention to grain clarity, colour coordination, and overall design. The edges of Kincaid products are then carefully shaped to provide enhanced quality and beauty.
While the exterior of Kincaid products are constructed with strictly solid wood, the exposed surfaces contain various materials such as multi-layered plywood, veneers, and laminates for certain structural elements.
Moreover, some Kincaid Furniture features metal, stone, marble, granite, or composite materials with the appearance of these elements.
In addition to a thoughtful selection of materials, Kincaid products are also made with expert craftsmanship and detailed methods of construction.
Kincaid products feature …
Premium soft-close drawer glides featuring adjustable drawer positioning as well as an adjustable tensioning feature for exquisite motion and a long life.
Where design allows, heavy front posts are used for additional case stability and strength.
Raised panel doors and bed panels utilize a floating, self-centering construction technique.
Chairs are crafted using a glue and screw technique across a finger-jointed corner, adding strength to the chair while minimizing flex across the joint.
Solid Wood Edges
Shaped edges are constructed of solid wood, unlike many other manufacturers who use banded veneers. Solid wood is a superior choice for premium quality and durability.
Mortise and Tenon Joints
Case construction features mortise and tenon joinery, a time-proven method of assembling two parts at a 90-degree angle.
Fully floating tops, end panels, bed panels, etc. incorporated into every Kincaid product to allow normal expansion and contraction of the solid wood components as the humidity changes in your home.
Dovetail drawer construction utilizes English dovetails on the drawer front and back to create a tight fit and add exceptional strength.
Adjustable glides are provided on all units for leveling doors on larger cabinets for center support.
Price quotes of Kincaid products can only be provided by authorized furniture retailers.
Generally, Kincaid products fall within the high-end price range of case goods, including coffee tables on the market. These costs are ultimately reflected in the top-of-the-line quality and detail that goes into making such heirloom furniture products.

Is Kincaid Furniture Right for You?
Kincaid has much to offer in terms of style, quality, and longevity, but these products are not for everyone.
First and foremost, Kincaid Furniture products are right for someone who is willing to invest money in unique heirloom furniture that they intend to keep for many decades.
Magaly says that a Kincaid bedroom set is ideal for someone who wants something to last an entire marriage. Or a dining room arrangement meant to be passed down through generations.
Investing in Kincaid furniture is not ideal, nor worthwhile, for someone who will wish to replace their furniture in another five or ten years.
Further, given that Kincaid has such depth of the product in each collection, Kincaid is right for someone who would like to achieve a coordinated furniture style throughout their home. With so many options, someone could furnish their bedroom, living room, and dining room, with one cohesive Kincaid look.
Finally, Kincaid Furniture is a great choice for someone who has an eye and appreciation for quality and detailed craftsmanship in their home furnishings. An appreciation for such quality will make your Kincaid investment feel worthwhile for years to come.
