What do shoulder pads, mullets, velour track suits, big hair, shag rugs and platform shoes all have in common? (Aside from making you cringe.) They were all fads that dominated American culture. The thing about fads though is that they soon fade.
Great Season Ending Savings Opportunity! This is what dreams are made of!
Oh no it’s August! You know what that means? School is back in session, days left to spend at the golf course are slipping away, the late sunsets slowly grow earlier and earlier and we find ourselves bringing sweaters with us just in case. While I hate to see Summer go, as a serial online shopper, I can’t help but love the clearance events during August.
Summer Lovin’ Happened So Fast…well-a well-a save big before our Summer Bedroom Sale is Gone.
It’s here people! Summer has arrived! I don’t know about you but it’s one of my favorite times of year. I love the days and nights filled with sun. I love the BBQ’s it brings family together for. The bright mornings and hot days. I love how everything is so green and full of life. Oh I could go on and on about the things I love about summer but I’ll save you from my tangent.
Being a sustainable company may be trendy now, but how do you know if what you’re buying is truly sustainable?
Our company was founded with the mission to save the rainforest. If you don’t know, we are a wood furniture company that uses only sustainably harvested wood from here in the Northeast. It’s been 10 years and we still guarantee that. Now it seems big name brands to celebrities are getting in on the action. With so many products and brands now claiming sustainable practices and resources, it may be hard to tell if the products you’re using really are eco-friendly.
Made in America furniture companies are run by people you can trust.
When you shop online for furniture, or even shop around at stores, a fundamental for any trustworthy company is that it is run by honest, hardworking people. Buying furniture is a big investment, and rightfully so, as we spend so much of our lives enjoying it. Shopping American made usually ensures that your investment is a good one–giving you a great product, made by great people.
Many companies overseas are not transparent about who’s behind the company, what their goals are, how their workers are paid, and where they are sourcing their materials from. Made in America furniture companies, however, are held to a much higher standard.
You can be sure that when buying American made furniture, you are directly helping support the livelihoods of hardworking American people– from customer service to the talented craftsmen who pour hours of their time and energy into creating beautiful pieces of furniture for us to enjoy.
You can also be sure that made in America furniture companies are held to strict standards for workplace safety, so you can feel good knowing that you aren’t contributing to terrible factory environments that can result in real disasters (remember the tragedy at the textile factory in Bangladesh?)
It’s still important to ask questions.
While some Made in America furniture companies are still sourcing their wood from questionable sources, there are also many great companies that source their materials with care and ethical consideration. At Vermont Woods Studios, we work with a handful of wonderful craftsmen who are responsible in their choices of materials and are sure not to use anything that degrades the environment or destroys the habitats of humans and animals across the globe. It’s important to question the people you are buying from about where their woods and materials are sourced, because even despite being made in the USA, there are companies who will do anything to save a buck.
So, when you start shopping for furniture keep in mind that made in America furniture companies are almost always a better choice than the alternative. When in doubt, ask the hard questions–where is this made, who is behind it, where are the materials sourced, can I see the quality in person before I buy, could I speak to a previous customer, etc.
A truly trustworthy and responsible company will go above and beyond to ensure that you feel comfortable with your buying experience, and with such an important investment, we don’t believe you should have to settle for anything but the best.
