Made in America

I’m on a search for new furniture…and I’d like to go with American made is I can. It seems a daunting undertaking since most of our every day products are imported, and furniture is no exception. Most of it is made in China, with a few stray pieces I’ve come across that were made in Mexico. At least we are on the same continent there.  But now I’ve come across a luxurious furniture design company that displays as their key feature the symbol of made in America.

Furniture by Lee, or Lee Industries, offers innovative designs with great Earth-Friendly upholstery options in styles that will surprise for all rooms of your new home or apartment. And best of all, as they boast, all pieces are made in America! This company was featured on ABC News with Diane Sawyer in the Made in America series last month. I certainly love the pieces they produce.

I will continue my search for more furniture and home design and decorating options. If you know of any great companies to feature let me know.  I would certainly love to put them on my list. As it is, I cannot find a coffee pot that’s make in the US, and from what I watched on the ABC new special, they couldn’t find one either.
