The Better We Look!.
The Bush family became involved in the furniture industry when Kyle Bush, father of
Hollis Bush, owner of Bushline Furniture, began selling bedroom furniture for Morristown
Chest Company in Morristown, Tennessee in 1949. Kyleworked for this company in a
sales capacity until his death in July of 1959.
In those days, unlike today, some furniture companies sold from a truck that ran a route
selling to stores every four weeks. In1958, Kyle's oldest son Letton, began working for the
same company on his own route. In 1963, Hollis and his brother, Letton opened a
furniture store which Hollis operated. Upon Hollis’s graduation from college, the store
was closed and Hollis spent the next four years teaching school.
In 1970, Hollis and his brother, Letton, began Bushline Manufacturing in an old general
store building in Lone Mountain, Tennessee with about 6000 square feet of floor space
and 6 employees. Since then Bushline has grown into their current facilities of about
200,000 square feet.
The year 2000 brought about the retirement of Letton and the beginning of the new
“Bushline Furniture”, a sole ownership corporation. Our facilities are well staffed with
competent, experienced personal dedicated to the satisfactionof our customers. After 15
years of the new century, we continue to look forward to a prosperous century for
Bushline Furniture and our greatly appreciated dealers.
