Lineberry Carts have become incredibly popular in the last couple of years after Restoration Hardware repurposed and popularized them as coffee tables. Originally Lineberry Carts, produced by the Lineberry Company of Wilkboro, North Carolina, were used to transport luggage at railway stations across the country.
The carts come in several different styles with the wheel pattern being the most noticeable difference between the designs. The carts that I have restored have had the spoke wheel, floral wheel and teardrop pattern wheels. Typically the metal pieces of the cart are all cast iron and the wooden frames are made of white oak.
