Jessica Charles was born into the furniture industry in 1975. Founded by Bill Disque, along with partners Kermit Pierce and Joe Slade, they were originally known as Disque furniture. Their reputation for having the best swivel rockers gave them a niche in the furniture world. From there, they expanded into swivels, gliders, dining chairs, benches, ottomans and settees.
In 1995, they were purchased by Jack Glasheen, Jimmy Moore and Tim Rogers (of Hancock & Moore) and renamed Jessica Charles. Kermit Pierce stayed with the company as Vice President and continued to run the manufacturing side of Jessica Charles until his death in 2018. The company continues to honor his memory today by manufacturing furniture the Kermit way, making sure every piece would meet his flawless standards.
In 2015, as the owners neared retirement, they sold the company to Rock House Farm Family of Brands and became a sister company to Century and Highland House. Today, under the leadership of Alex Shuford, III, the company continues to honor the mission upon which they were founded.
