"Southern Surreal" features remarkable examples of a truly innovative and clever furniture designer. Touch a hidden catch and a bookshelf groaning with novels suddenly drops forward to reveal a desk behind a false front. Press another catch and a secret panel pops out and slides open.

All are creations of Tilden J. Stone, grand eccentric and master furnituremaker born in 1874 in Thomasville, North Carolina. Many of the pieces reflect the extensive travels that had exposed him to a wide variety of different styles of woodworking. This exhibition marks the first time his amazing furniture has been exhibited in his home state.
