We’re rethinking the way contract furniture works.

We founded Hightower in 2003 to offer seamless access to fresh, international designs for the workplace. 

We could see the industry needed a team that could understand and respond to the rapidly changing needs of forward thinking designers, companies, and people.

Today, our success stems from an uncompromising commitment to challenge and improve the status quo. Collaborating with leading architects and designers for clients in Tech, Education, Hospitality, and more, we’re known for innovative design and quality products. And our passionate, dynamic team powers unparalleled customer service.

In addition to Hightower’s own extensive product collection,  Hightower offers our clients access to best sellers from from the following leading international brands: Four Design, Swedese, Ondaretta, Lightyears, Materia, +Halle, Mitab, Frost Design, Erik Jorgensen and Focus Products.  Many of these key products are stocked locally for quick shipment or manufactured in North Carolina under an exclusive licensing agreement.

Our Values

Be Curious

To stay inspired and ahead of our competition, we look outside our own industry, talk with new people, ask questions, improve our skills and challenge our own ideas. We are constantly learning in order to push the boundaries of what is currently possible.

Drive Progress

We believe in constant evolution. We invest time in seeking out new, unique ways to be better in the future than we are today. We support and reward one another for taking creative risks because we are determined to find the right solution, not the expected solution.

Anticipate Needs

We work in service of our customers and each other, seeking to fully understand each other’s goals, anticipating needs and working together to consistently deliver a high quality outcome that exceeds expectations.

Act Intentionally

We choose to care deeply about the work we do each day and to think holistically to maximize our impact. We show up knowing that our work directly shapes the experiences of each other, our clients and our community.

Foster Creativity

We invest in creative outlets for our team and look for meaningful ways to engage and give back to our local communities in order to inspire a more creative future.

Stay Humble

Good ideas can come from anywhere. We work constructively together, ask questions and solicit feedback. We’re open to each other, our clients, our partners and the world around us - everyone has something to offer.
