Made in the U.S.A.

September 21, 2011 , , , , , ,

With so many reasons to buy American made products, it seems crazy that more businesses are not selling more American made items.  From baby toys to cars, Americans want to support their country, while carrying the peace of mind that these products are built under stringent regulations and conditions.

Recently, I had a wonderful couple in my showroom that insisted on buying American.  Great!  We offer many wonderful home products that are made here.  Here are some that I love!

Crystal Cabinets, made in good old Minnesota.  A family owned business since 1947, these craftsmen are the best at premium cabinetry and fine furniture, or should I say craftswomen.  Many of the employees making the cabinetry are women.  Crystal treats every order as a custom art project, going as far as laying out all products to make sure they match.  You can be assured that your purchase from Crystal is supporting its local community while you receive a superior product!

Cambria Countertops

Cambria Quartz Surfaces.  The ONLY quartz company made in the USA.  Also a family owned company, and also made in Minnesota.  Cambria prides themselves in making quartz products to mimic natural stone.  My readers already know that I prefer quartz over granite, and with Cambria’s colors, you will find the natural veining of granite.  Check them out!

Enkeboll Designs, Fine Architectural Woodcarvings.  Over 50 years experience in woodcarving for the Kitchen, Bath or anywhere in your home.  These carvings are produced in California using North American hardwoods and sustainable practices.  For a classical or traditional elements, Enkeboll provides numerous unique options for the home.  And for the more modern home, Enkeboll introduces their new Tribeca Collection to inspire a cleaner and more contemporary aesthetic.

Renewal by Andersen

Renewal by Andersen.  Custom built windows and patio doors used for replacements to fit existing dimensions and finishes.  While the Anderson Corporation is now global, they started out a small Wisconsin company in the early 1900’s.  Renewal by Anderson is made in Minnesota since 1995, but draws on Andersen’s reputation for quality and durability as well as beauty.

Raw Urth Designs.  Hand Forged Range Hoods, Countertops, Backsplashes, Shelving, and Fireplace surrounds.  Based in Colorado, this husband and wife team began designing items for their own home, and a company was born.  The design and craftsmanship are impeccable!  Raw Urth’s got it going on!  With finishes from Copper, Zinc, Bronze and Steel, with different patinas and treatments offered, I could go wild choosing one of these for a client!  One thing is for sure, any product from this company will become a focal point!

One should feel very patriotic putting any of these products made in the USA in their homes.  It is way of saying thank you to fellow American employees and to ensure you receive premium products.  Go USA!!!
