Designs that are... Born in the USA!

I will give you a minute to get the image of Bruce Springsteen out of your head! I am talking about furniture, fabrics, wallpaper and accessories that are USA created. Back in October there was a big hype at the High Point Fall Market about the rebirth of "Made in the USA." This emerging trend carried on into the January Market at the Americasmart in Atlanta.

Over the course of several years the American furniture industry has gone from making ‘world class’ products to shutting down plants and outsourcing hundreds of thousands of manufacturing jobs overseas . A new study from the Economic Policy Institute found that America has lost 2.8 million jobs to China in recent years because of failed trade policies.

But America is open for business again, so lets take a look at some of the companies that carry the Born in the USA label!

Hickory Chair Company: History of Hickory Chair
