July 4th celebrates the birth of the American nation, and with it, our ingenuity, resilience, and love of freedom. This Independence Day, we wanted to take a moment to celebrate the American craftsman. In this day and age of global trade, with so many manufacturing and engineering operations outsourced, there still remain a dedicated few furniture makers who have stayed the course in the good ol’ US of A. We’ve highlighted some of our favorite States-side manufacturers, along with their summertime must-have pieces.
With nearly 25 years in business on the East and West Coasts, Eagle One manufactures high quality outdoor furniture and products. Eagle One products are designed to weather the elements, made with extra heavy-duty institutional grade recycled high density polyethylene lumber (HDPE), while retaining comfort. Their proprietary lumber is top rated for its resistance to wind, water, rusting, and splintering, while requiring extremely low-to-no maintenance to keep your product looking new. Eagle One products are made and manufactured in the US, and available in a variety of all-American styles.
We love this kids’ table set, designed durably to withstand whatever punishment your children inflict on it this summer. Markers, food stains, dirt, and dust disappear with soap and water – keeping the table chemical free. Plus, it’s available in our favorite summer colors – red, white, and blue!
Montana Woodworks, a family owned business, prides itself on being largest manufacturer of handcrafted rustic furnishings in the United States. Using sustainable logging practices, Montana Woodworks harvests its stunning wood in the Kootenai National Forest in northwestern Montana without bringing harm to animals or live trees. Each piece is hand peeled and stripped for a truly unique finish you won’t find in mass-produced imitations. Furnishings range from classic wooden bedroom furniture and bathroom fixtures to living room accents, dining tables, and outdoor pieces. One of the most chic summer trends, rustic furniture is also a beautiful investment for all year round.
While each piece is filled with substance and style, an outdoor swing is the essence of the American heartland in the summer. This rustic swing makes a terrific addition to your porch, patio, or backyard.
A leading manufacturer of wall decor in the US, Art Effects designs and produces a variety of impressive artwork to adorn your interiors in style.

You’ll find a variety of painted scenes including nature, abstracts, tribal motifs, and typographic art ranging from canvases and panels to framed pieces, as well as cork boards and message centers.
Of course, you should choose your wall art in accordance with your space’s theme, but we’re partial to Old Glory finding her way to your home this summer.
