Lighting Made in America

Following my infatuation with lamps and lighting of late, and the ever present search for things made in America, I was pleased to come across this Elle Decor article on these two subjects combined.

Jason Miller, a Brooklyn based designer, has found Roll & Hill, a contemporary lighting manufacturing company, which sells unique lamps and light fixtures that are made in the USA. Love this Halo pendant lamp by Paul Loebach. Great for over a contemporary table or island kitchen. Here are a few other inspiring designs:

Mode Table Lamp, great for a desk or workspace.

I like the warm feel of this wall sconce from Miller’s Odds & Ends series. More on the lighting featured here at Elle Decor. Photo credits: Roll & Hill

Made in America

I’m on a search for new furniture…and I’d like to go with American made is I can. It seems a daunting undertaking since most of our every day products are imported, and furniture is no exception. Most of it is made in China, with a few stray pieces I’ve come across that were made in Mexico. At least we are on the same continent there.  But now I’ve come across a luxurious furniture design company that displays as their key feature the symbol of made in America.

Furniture by Lee, or Lee Industries, offers innovative designs with great Earth-Friendly upholstery options in styles that will surprise for all rooms of your new home or apartment. And best of all, as they boast, all pieces are made in America! This company was featured on ABC News with Diane Sawyer in the Made in America series last month. I certainly love the pieces they produce.

I will continue my search for more furniture and home design and decorating options. If you know of any great companies to feature let me know.  I would certainly love to put them on my list. As it is, I cannot find a coffee pot that’s make in the US, and from what I watched on the ABC new special, they couldn’t find one either.
