Furniture that is crafted in America, by Americans, for Americans—how much more patriotic can you get?

Vaughan Bassett is not only the largest manufacturer of wooden adult bedroom furniture in the U.S., but all of their furniture is crafted 100% from start to finish in America by their 700 American employees. In the summer months, patriotism is greatly expressed whether it’s through the clothing we wear that so proudly displays the American flag, the music we play that sings of our devotion to our country, or by the celebrations we have with our loved ones. But this shouldn’t be the only time that we express our patriotism.

The truth of the matter is that buying American made products will not only show your love for your own country, but it will also help your country. So why is it better to buy American products?

American manufacturers help to reduce the unemployment rate in America and stabilize our economy. Just one manufacturing job in the U.S. supports five other U.S. jobs (via BuyingAmericaBack.org).

  • Safety

Many countries outside of the U.S. don’t have as strict safety regulations which have caused massive safety recalls on numerous products. American made products take the worry out of safety issues because of the Consumer Product Safety Commission which aims to maintain the protection and safety of Americans through consumer products.

  • Community

Imagine feeling the pride you do on July 4th every single day. That’s what it’s like when you start to support local businesses that make their own products. If the manufacturer’s business is here in America, then most of the profits they make will most likely be going back to America in some way, and you helped contribute to that.

  • Environment

Because manufacturers in America don’t have to transport their products overseas, they have considerably smaller carbon footprints. In fact, Vaughan Bassett even plants a new tree in place of every tree they used in manufacturing. Since 2007, they have planted over 1 million trees. They have also invested in rough end systems that decrease the number of trees that are needed to produce furniture by 20%.


Help your economy, community, and environment and stay safe. Vaughan Bassett furniture is something to be proud of buying because you’re helping your country and getting not only a well-made product, but something that looks beautiful, too. Be proud to buy American made furniture. Be proud to be an American.
