The furniture market this year in High Point revealed domestically-produced products on the rise. We are excited with the end result being new resources for products that are made in America. We have supported local manufacturers for a long time, Hickory Chair, Hickory White, Pearson, Miles Talbott/Michael Thomas and relative accessories manufacturers.
Society has become increasingly global with the ever-expanding innovations in technology making the world ever-smaller, but many US consumers are still feeling the pull of home when it comes to products they purchase.
While import business remains a significant contributor to the marketplace, many furniture and accessories manufacturers are producing some or all of their products domestically. Who knows, we may be selling containers to our neighbor import companies in the future. I think the end consumer is attracted to Made in the USA and supporting our country and products made here. I know I am.
