We're moving!

The showroom located at 13400 Red Arrow Hwy., Harbert, MI, will close April 20, 2021.

We will reopen by appointment beginning May 12, 2021, at: 4102 Hanover Rd., New Troy, MI

After 25 years on Red Arrow Highway, we’ve made the momentous decision locate our showroom adjacent to our shop in New Troy.

Since 1985, the shop has been located on property occupied by Terry’s family for six generations. Overlooking ponds and woods at the end of Hanover Road, it’s an inspiring and tranquil place.

In addition to viewing our exclusive collection of furniture, visitors will have the opportunity to observe work in progress in the shop.

Why the move? Events of the past year have awakened in us a desire to simplify, to focus on what’s most important to us. With this simplification, we will be able to dedicate even more attention to the custom work that makes your bespoke pieces special.

We'll continue to welcome customers by appointment, through April 20, at our location on Red Arrow Highway. To make an appointment, please contact us. We're looking forward to working with you.


COVID-19 Response:

Showroom is open by appointment only. We are also happy to discuss your needs by phone or e-mail. Contact us.

Community Service

In October 2020, Center of the World was once again a Gold-level sponsor of Run to the Center of the World Half Marathon & 5K Run, which despite an ongoing pandemic, succeeded in safely raising more than $3,00 for the New Troy Community Center.

Over the past 16 years, owners Terry and Lorraine Hanover, with assistance from Center of the World staff, have volunteered hundreds of hours of service for the Community Center, which receives no government funding, yet provides an under-privileged community with a multitude of services (lending library with Wifi, weekly story hour, summer reading programs, pickleball, yoga, local history collection, playground, demonstration rain garden, winter coat drive, recycling event, visits from Santa, indoor winter flea markets and much more).

Owned, maintained and operated by the non-profit organization, Friends of New Troy, the Center receives no tax dollars, but has been supported entirely by fundraisers, donations, membership fees, and more recently, grants.

In 2019, Terry and Lorraine joined forces with Rotarian David Stevenson to write grants to rehab the Center's 4 restrooms. Built in 1962 as an elementary school, the Center's bathrooms had never been upgraded. Four grants came through, and the bathroom rehab was completed in the spring/summer of 2020.
