There simply isn't a downside to buying high-quality American made furniture
Until recently, most of us didn't notice where the goods we purchased were made. We never thought to just turn something up and look at the little sticker on the underside. Now that we have, most of us are surprised. It turns out many of the objects in our homes were made somewhere else.
The reasons for this have little or nothing to do with the quality or price of the goods. Foreign manufacturers advertise and market heavily in the US, so their goods are seen more often and are often easier to find. That doesn't mean they're better or even cheaper.
In fact, handmade household items made in the US are generally of very high quality and are priced competitively with foreign products. American made furniture
, for instance, offers quality manufacturing along with attractive styles that might not be available from a foreign supplier. Amish furniture
is a unique American style backed by a long tradition of craftsmanship and integrity. It is not produced in an automated factory, and each piece has the sturdiness and homespun charm that can only be had with handmade goods. The same is true for mission style furniture
, another perennial American favorite.
The price of American made furniture and mission style furniture
is comparable to that of foreign goods, but in many cases, they are really a better investment because they will perform better and last longer. When you buy foreign goods in the US, they are invariably mass produced and are often made from inferior materials. You won't have that issue with pieces of Amish furniture
or mission style furniture
, which are built with traditional high-quality materials and methods.
Customers who are mainly familiar with assembly-line furniture may be forgiven for thinking that American goods are inferior items made of cheaper materials, but that hasn't always been the case. There is a tradition of excellence and pride in craftsmanship in the US, and it's still alive in products like our mission style furniture and Amish furniture
If you were shocked, as most of us were, when you started turning up your furniture and looking at the stickers on the underside, then you're beginning to have some idea of just how much commerce we've lost in the US by not buying American made furniture
