With the Fourth of July, the Summer Olympics and the presidential election all on the horizon, patriotism is riding high. Did you know that Art Van Furniture – an American company and Michigan tradition – carries several products that were Made in the USA?
Take a look at these brands that were made in America, maybe even in your back yard or by your friends or family:
Renowned for more than 25 years for its craftsmanship and quality, the L.J. Gascho Furniture Company makes some of the finest solid wood furniture in the world, and they do it in Pigeon, Michigan. Founder Lyle J. Gascho is a local woodworker and fourth-generation chicken farmer who had learned woodworking techniques from Amish and Mennonite craftsmen. With a passion for quality and detail, he started making furniture as a hobby. An Art Van executive and buyer saw one of Lyle’s tables, and asked if he’d sell his pieces at Art Van Furniture stores. Lyle’s hobby quickly became a thriving business. Today L.J. Gascho has grown into a company with 115 employees, but the mission has stayed the same: “to produce high quality furniture that will become heirlooms to be passed on from generation to generation.”
ASPEN has evolved from a small family-owned home entertainment business based in Phoenix, Arizona to an award-winning full line furniture company specializing in thoughtfully designed innovative products for the way people work, play and relax at home. The company offers collections for the bedroom, dining, home office, home entertainment and occasional furnishings. While some of the materials have been sourced from around the world, ASPEN furniture is “Assembled with Pride in the USA.”
Southern Motion is one of Art Van customers’ favorite recliners and motion furniture makers, and the company was founded in 1996 in Pontotoc, Mississippi, with one mission: manufacture only reclining furniture and make it better than anyone ever had. The owners took the name from a painting by a Birmingham, Alabama artist. It served not only as the inspiration for their moniker; it embodies the spirit of the product that epitomizes relaxation and comfort. Today the company employs 1,200 people, and each component of the furniture is produced by southern craftsmen/women.
La-Z-Boy was started more than 85 years ago with the all-American invention of the world’s first reclining chair. Its corporate headquarters are still based in Monroe, Michigan, and today the company makes a wide variety of reclining and non-reclining furniture. La-Z-Boy has five U.S. manufacturing plants and six distribution centers, and it employs more than 6,300 people nationwide. It also has a famous limited lifetime warranty, so customers aren’t just proud to buy American; they can rest assured their comfort will last.
