What Sets American Made Furniture Apart?
We learned a lot as we set out to design and furnish the Made in America Homearama house. The bottom line? When you buy American made furniture, you buy an heirloom!
Alison and Tina (shown right and left respectively) journeyed to the High Point Furniture Market in April to search for American made furniture. They returned with more than sofas. They came back with the knowledge that American made furniture is different! They also came back with glowing stories of a woman they met, Nanette Price of N Design International.
Price works with Key City Furniture to create beautiful collections of American made furniture. She says, “American craftsmanship simply can’t be replicated, from the inside out. Moreover, the pride that the crafters take in making each piece is second to none. They make sure it’s done right!” She is proud to have paired with Key City to showcase her Coastal Classics collection in our Made in America house because of their dedication to high-quality work.
Founded in 1927, Key City is now owned by the gradsons of the founder of the business, and Price says the tried and true techniques are passed down through each generation. On their sofas and chairs, they use Appalachian wood for their frame, which is sourced from a sustainable forest. The hand-tied coils and ten way hand-tied technique in the frame is the highest quality in furniture making and cannot be replicated with a machine. This ensures the most stability and comfort. These products are simply built to last.
Tina and Alison were blown away by Key City’s ten way hand-tied sofas. According to Tina, “an eight way hand-tied is fabulous but a ten way hand-tie? It’s exemplary quality!”
Let’s hear it for the ole U-S-of-A!
