Furniture 100% Made in America

"Every dollar you spend- or don't spend- is a vote cast for the type of world you want to live in."

Once upon a time, woodworking and furniture making were thriving industries in the US. Classic American furniture companies like Bassett, Broyhill, Lane, Lazy Boy, Kincaid, Restoration Hardware, Crate and Barrel, Pottery Barn, and even Ethan Allen employed thousands of American workers and produced some of the highest quality furniture the world had ever seen.

Around the turn of the 21st century, many of those American furniture manufacturers ceased or downsized their US manufacturing facilities in favor of cheaper production overseas. Thousands of skilled American workers in North Carolina, Maine, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, and even Vermont lost their jobs and their once-vibrant communities turned to ghost towns.

Today, most of the furniture sold in the USA is manufactured overseas and imported from China, Malaysia, Vietnam, and other parts of the developing world. This global supply chain leads to increased carbon emissions, deforestation & illegal logging, species extinction, and inhumane working conditions. Not to mention this imported furniture is often of low quality which leads to more waste in landfills.

The benefits of buying American made furniture go beyond your own home. Yes- furniture made in the USA tends to be of higher quality, but its also better for the planet and better for the economy.

Better for the American Economy

Buying American made furniture is great for your home and great for the environment, but its also great for your neighbors. The wood furniture industry in the US provides income for thousands of Americans, including private land-owners, loggers, saw mill operators, lumber yards, furniture makers, and more. These U.S. businesses provide good working conditions and livable wages for Americans all over the country.
