Nowadays, so many products are made overseas, but thankfully when it comes to furniture made in the USA, there are tons of great options! Furniture is a massive industry so we’ve done a ton of research to create a list that includes all types of furniture, including sofas, tables, recliners, outdoor furniture, and a whole lot more!
Scroll down this guide for a carefully compiled list of the best American made furniture brands to keep in mind next time you decide to redecorate or furnish your house or any space. Keep in mind that the brands at the top are not necessarily better than any of the other brands because each brand shines in different areas, and their product selection varies greatly.
List of Furniture Made in the USA
Vaughan Bassett (Great Bedroom Furniture)
|Types of Furniture||Bedroom Furniture|
|Materials Used||Solid Woods-Pine, Oak, Maple, Cherry, Ash, Poplar, Birch, and Beech|
|Origin||Galax, North Carolina|
Vaughan Bassett’s Origin and Manufacturing Locations
Vaughan-Bassett, founded in 1919, is one the last remaining bedroom furniture makers of its scale that has managed to strive and thrive in the age of imports. The brains behind this brand’s success were John Bassett III of Bassett Furniture and BC Vaughan.
Through some tweaks, well-timed decisions, and dedication to making 100% USA-made products, John Bassett was able to keep the company going when so many North Carolina furniture makers went under. I managed to get my hands on New York Times best-seller Factory Man, an inspiring read on how Bassett fought to save American jobs by staying local.
When so many of the brand’s products are solid wood constructions, it’s important to be responsible and sustainable. Vaughan-Bassett knows that and actively works towards sustainability through their “One for One” initiative- where for every tree harvested, a new tree is planted. The brand’s collaboration with the Virginia Department of Forestry has resulted in over 1.5 million trees getting planted in the last decade alone!
Vaughan Bassett’s Furniture Selection and Offerings
It’s heartening to see Vaughan-Bassett’s sheer commitment to quality and American craftsmanship that’s hard to come by these days. The brand continues to employ over 700 people at its three North Carolina manufacturing plants in Galax, Virginia, and Elkin. Most of what they make is solid wood, for which Vaughan-Bassett uses an amazing array of wood species, including pine, oak, maple, cherry, and beech, among many others.
Consider this brand your one-stop shop for bedroom furniture needs. Here you’ll find everything from the finely crafted chests of drawers, to dressers, to nightstands, to beds. For their dressers and chests, Vaughan-Bassett takes care to comply with ASTM International F2057, a safety standard for furniture stability, and all their storage furniture comes with an anti-tip kit.
Their catalog has a stunning collection of queen and king-sized beds with features like storage, low-profile footboards, and paneled headboards. The rustic, hand-hewn canoe-inspired Board and Batten, a more casual Louvered bed with a low footboard, arched headboard bed, and the versatile raised paneled Mansion bed are just some of the many options to pick from.
Vermont Woods Studios (Great All-Wood Furniture)
|Types of Furniture||Bedroom, Dining Room, Living Room, Home Office, and Outdoor|

Vermont Woods Studios’ Origin and Manufacturing Locations
Manufacturing sustainably and responsibly takes the center seat when it comes to wooden furniture. This is why Vermont Woods Studios works tirelessly to offer ultra-durable furniture with sustainably sourced North-American Hardwoods- maple, oak, cherry, and walnut.
Besides using only native and local wood species, VWS plants thousands of trees each year for reforestation. The brand was founded in 2005 by Ken and Peggy Farabaugh with an aim to produce top-grade wood furniture, 100% handmade in Vermont.
Vermont Woods Studios’ Furniture Selection and Offerings
Did you know Vermont Woods Studios has its very own forest? Nestled in Stonehurst, a 109-acre forest in Southern Vermont, VWS headquarter is also home to bees, birds, butterflies, deer, foxes, porcupines, and other wildlife. The joy of living and working in a real forest rubs off in their striking collection, available in styles like Modern Industrial, Shaker, Mission & Craftsmen Style, Modern, Mid-Century, and Traditional American Furniture. Since every piece is made on order, you can further customize and tweak it to your taste.
Vermont Woods Studios’ well-built, high-end, heirloom-quality wood furniture goes a long way, resulting in a much smaller carbon footprint than what you typically find in the market. Plus, by manufacturing locally, this brand and all those who buy from it are supporting local jobs and talent- woodworkers, sawmill workers, and loggers. Now, who wouldn’t say yes to such a sweet deal?
American Signature (Most Options)
|Types of Furniture||Sofas, Dining Sets, Beds, Accents, Home Office, Entertainment Centers|
|Materials Used||Wood, Metal, Fabric, Glass, and Leather|
American Signature’s Origin and Manufacturing Locations
Growing the way American Signature did despite the adversities and throttling competition from overseas is an excellent example of an American success story. The best part? They did all of this without giving up on American manufacturing. The Schottenstein family’s association with furniture began nearly a century ago in the 1930s, with Ephraim L. Schottenstein selling furniture from the basement of his clothing store.
Real success came by when Ephraim’s son, Jerome, joined the business three decades later and kicked off a slew of acquisitions to expand the company. All this while, the Schottenstein’s were focused on retail. Only in the 1990s they decided to start producing their furniture under American Signature Furniture. Now led by Jay and Jonathan Schottenstein, the company owns 125 stores and employs over 4,000 people in the USA. If you’d like to learn more about the company, you can check out their About Us page here, where they also have a picture of some of their employees at their massive manufacturing facility in North Carolina. One thing to keep in mind is that while the majority of their furniture is made in the USA, their product selection is massive so with a company of this size that’s constantly adding inventory, I also recommend double-checking with customer service before ordering.
American Signature’s Furniture Selection and Offerings
Looking for a sectional sofa, dining set, bookcase, end table, accents, gaming Table? Or perhaps an adorable bunk bed for your kids? Or a comfy chair and table for your home office? Then this is the brand for you! Family-owned from the start, American Signature Furniture is highly recognized for its superior quality, value, and timeless designs that’ll never go out of style.

Floyd’s Furniture Selection and Offerings
Since the launch of its inventive furniture legs that allowed people to make a table out of any material and place it on the thick steel legs, Floyd has come a long way in a matter of years. It won’t be wrong to say this brand has revolutionized the way we use our furniture and made us realize there’s so much more we can get out of it before discarding it.
Like its unique table legs that have loyal fans the world over, the versatile Floyd bed frame can be modified to accommodate different mattress sizes through an easy-to-use kit. All of this brand’s furniture, including the bed, sofas, tables, desks, storage, and display units, has been built to extend their lifecycle and make them fully serviceable.

Since its launch in 1990, this brand has grown from a small team working out of rented space to a 600-employee-strong company operating a gigantic 350,000 sq feet plant in Dallas, Texas.

Stickley’s Origin and Manufacturing Locations
Crafting every piece of furniture with time-honored techniques, integrity, and excellence is the driving force behind Stickley’s 122-years-old growth story. Founder Gustav Stickley wanted the world to know what made them different, so he marked every piece with “Als Ik Kan” – to the best of my ability.
When you buy something from this brand, rest assured that it has been made with utmost dedication and with the finest materials at Stickley’s manufacturing facility in Manilus, New York. I really like this company if you’d like to learn more about them, check out the About US page of their website here.
Stickley’s Furniture Selection and Offerings
Being a nature conservationist, Gustav Stickley made sure that the company’s manufacturing processes were centered around energy efficiency and sustainability. Striking harmony with nature has been the brand’s guiding mantra. They reuse, re-purpose, and use locally sourced North American hardwoods to create pieces that’ll be around for generations instead of ending up in landfills.
Besides using the highest-grade woods, Stickley’s durability comes from its superior craftsmanship and robust designs. Pinned Mortise-and-Tennon Joinery, Self-locking Dovetail Joints, Bracket Foot Construction, and Quadralinear posts are some of the stand-out features that deliver heirloom durability.
Graceful and timeless pieces make up Stickly’s upscale furniture collection. Fans of the traditional style will fall in love with Stickley’s iconic Mission Collection, Cherry Classic, and St. Lawrence. Meanwhile, collections like Metropolitan and Martine, with their clean shapes and understated beauty, are more likely to woo contemporary enthusiasts.

Every POLYWOOD piece of furniture is made at either their original Syracuse, Indiana factory or the recently rolled out North Carolina plan- putting them well within reach of achieving their goal of creating 1450 American jobs by 2023!
Being eco-friendly is not just lip service for them- POLYWOOD prevents an average of 400,000 milk jugs per day from ending up in landfills by recycling them. These milk jugs are then upcycled into the brand’s proprietary lumber, which happens to be the hero of their furniture collection.
POLYWOOD’s Furniture Selection and Offerings
The fact that their first creation, an all-weather Adirondack chair, is now available in 16 fascinating colors and patterns is a small example of the brand’s growing prominence. Polywood’s sprawling range makes it a one-stop shop for your outdoor and patio furniture needs.
Besides the iconic Adirondack, Polywood makes rocking chairs, coffee and accent tables, dining sets, deep seating sets, benches, swings, and much more. The milk jugs we mentioned go into making High-density Polyethylene Plastic (HDPE).
Durable and tough as nails, this material stays as good as new whatever surprise the weather gods may unleash, sweltering heat, blizzards, dust, rain, and storms. It can withstand all without chipping, cracking, rusting, staining, and splintering. To show just how confident they are of this, Polywood backs every product with a 20-year warranty.

Earlier known as “Hope Woodworking before its rebranding in 2017, Rustic Red Door is now run by the husband-wife duo of Shaun and Kerry.
The new name was Kerry’s idea. For her family, a “Red door” has been a symbol of hospitality and protection, passed down generations. It’s the same warmth they want to bring to your home through their beautiful, heirloom-quality furniture pieces, handcrafted with dedication and integrity by talented Amish craftsmen in Ohio.

I found RRD’s designs to give off a warm, old-world charm, perfect for farmhouses or homes with a country-side, rugged theme. Some of the pieces that caught my eye were Live Edge Wooden Benches available in cherry wood, walnut, hickory, and oak. and Mission Style Shoe Storage Bench.

As an iconic American brand, people expect nothing less than the highest quality, craftsmanship, integrity, and a certain degree of sensitivity towards the environment from them. La-Z-Boy delivers on all three parameters. Most of their products, including the iconic recliners and sofas, are still manufactured in North America and shipped all over the globe.

|Origin||Mt Hope, Ohio, USA|

|Types of Furniture||Outdoor Furniture- Tables, Chairs, Swings, Dining, Bar Sets, and Ottomans.|
|Materials Used||Proprietary Marine Grade Polymer|
Highwood’s Origin and Manufacturing Locations
A synthetic material produced by a British company that bore an uncanny resemblance to wood inspired Jim Morton and John Quarmley to introduce it in the US. When the two first started out in 2003, their focus was on producing and selling this innovative material to others for outdoor spas and decking needs. Thrilled by people’s response to this wood alternative, the duo decided to jump into the furniture manufacturing game themselves.
Two decades later, Highwood and its family of brands have built a solid reputation for their wood-like, aesthetically appealing, long-lasting outdoor furniture. To this date, everything is made 100% in their hometown in Pennsylvania, USA, at an eco-friendly factory run entirely on solar energy.
Highwood’s Furniture Selection and Offerings
I am not kidding when I say that at a cursory glance, Hamilton Reclining Adirondack Chair looked like a solid wood construction to me! For outdoor furniture, we want something durable that can easily withstand even punishing weather. Highwood’s furniture fits the bill! It is weather-resistant, easy to maintain, doesn’t rot, flake, or crack, nor does it fade. This saves you money and time on the furniture’s upkeep.
Sure, there are other brands offering high-density poly (HDPE) furniture, but this one is different. If you look closely at the ordinary HDPE, you’ll notice sharp edges, plastic creases, and a waxy look and feel. Highwood’s proprietary Marine Grade Polymer matches the natural wood in looks and feel but beats it in longevity.
Highwood offers every type of furniture you might need to deck up your yard. Porch swings, benches, outdoor dining sets, chairs, bar sets, conversation sets, and a great many varieties of tables and chairs, whatever you have in mind, you’ll find it here.

With seven factories that employ over 1500 American workers, Jackson Furniture is certainly playing its part in reviving American manufacturing. From the very beginning, founder W.Ray Jackson was firm about three things- innovation, value, and American pride. And he wanted every piece to reflect these values.
Since its launch in 1933, the brand has faced many challenges, from the Great Depression to wars to aggressive competition. Never once losing sight of their core values. Even today, all of their furniture, including their flagship Catnappers, are produced and assembled on American soil, and they won’t have it any other way!
Jackson Catnapper’s Furniture Selection and Offerings
Jackson furniture’s shot to fame is the uber-comfy Catnapper line. Catnappers are reclining pieces of furniture available in the form of sofas, sectionals, power recliners, swivel accent chairs, and more.
All seating options feature a heavy-duty steel frame and comfort coil seat cushion with a cooling gel memory foam insert. Jackson’s Catnappers are a must-have for anyone who loves sinking into something soft and plush to lay back and relax from the hustle-bustle of daily life.

Emeco (Upcycled Furniture)
|Types of Furniture||Chairs, Tables, Stools, Daybeds, Shelves|
|Materials Used||Recycled Aluminum, PET, Cork, Wood, Shelves|
Emeco’s Origin and Manufacturing Locations
Emeco’s line of furniture is lightweight, made from recycled material, and resilient enough to stand the test of time AND weather! And to think this brand has been around for almost eight decades, having made furniture from warships to hotels, offices, and homes, is pretty neat indeed! Emeco’s very first creation was way back in 1944- a 1006 Navy Chair made exclusively for warships and sailors.
The Navy chair’s core material, salvaged aluminum, was strengthened diligently using 77 steps to make it incredibly sturdy and virtually indestructible. It wasn’t until 1998 that owner Gregg observed a spark of interest for their flagship Navy chairs for use in a different environment like a hotel or restaurant. He collaborated with the well-known French designer Philippe Starck to come up with new designs to ramp up Emeco’s product range.
Emeco’s Furniture Selection and Offerings
As a manufacturer of scrapped aluminum furniture at a time when no one talked or cared about being green, sustainable, and eco-friendly, Emeco was way ahead of its time. Today Emeco’s pick of materials has grown with its product range.
The brand collaborated with Coca-Cola in 2010 by turning PET bottle waste into their 111 Navy Chair, a gorgeous, chic, no-frills chair made from at least 111 recycled PET bottles.

Bush Acres – Montessori Furniture (Kids Furniture)
|Types of Furniture||Kids Montessori Furniture, Home Decor, Odds, and Ends|
|Materials Used||Baltic Birch Plywood|
|Origin||Las Vegas, Nevada|
Bush Acres’ Origin and Manufacturing Locations
The Bush Acres is a small furniture company known for its fabulous range of kids’ furniture that is retailed mainly through its website or on e-commerce sites like Amazon and Etsy. Founded quite recently in 2019, Bush Acres is the brand of choice among parents looking for Montessori furniture for their kids. Since it’s fairly new in the furniture-making business, there isn’t much I could find about this brand except that they make everything with love and dedication in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA.
Bush Acres’ Furniture Selection and Offerings
Wooden beds in exciting car designs, roomy toy shelves, wardrobes, bookshelves, cute and functional potting tables, crafts tables, vanity, and lemonade stands. Everything that they make and sell has been designed with kids in mind. For their kid-friendly furniture, Bush Acres relies on decorative hardwood plywood with a veneer core, such as Baltic Birch Plywood. Considering it’s the kids who’ll be using this furniture, every piece is well-built and compliant with TSCA VI and CARB II (Formaldehyde Emission Standards). So you’ll get none of the nasty “new furniture” smell coming from these!
The wooden parts are shipped untreated, so the decision to have them stained and painted is left to the parents. Even in its natural, unfinished form, the furniture is a sight to behold! It’s easy on the eyes and would go well in the nursery or wherever you’ll place it. All storage pieces like wardrobes and dressers also come with furniture anchor straps to secure them to the wall.

Another item worth checking out from their bench collection is Sole Secret Diamond Tufted with slot dividers that can fit up to 18 shoes. Besides their ottomans and beaches, MJL’s collection of padded headboards and fabric chairs is plush, elegant, functional and available at pocket-pleasing prices.
Factors to Keep in Mind While Furniture Shopping
Let’s face it. Furniture is not an impulse buy or something that happens too often. So it is crucial that you get it right by picking out something that’ll last decades, meets your requirements, and goes with your style. To help you pick the right furniture that lives up to your expectations, here are some tips and pointers that’ll come in handy.
Measurement: Whether you’re buying something for the bedroom, living space, or dining area, getting the correct room measurements is critical. The last thing you would want is to be surprised with furniture that doesn’t fit the doorway.
Type: If you’re picking a sofa, would you go for a 2-seater, 3-seater, sectional, or perhaps a loveseat or a combination of these? It depends on the style and space, and the layout and function, like how many people you typically expect to entertain. What’s your family size? Planning ahead is key to picking the furniture that’ll be useful even after years.
Budget: Good quality furniture would cost you a pretty penny. But in the long run, it will always deliver your money’s worth. Consider furniture as an investment, and then work out how much you’re willing to shell out.
Material: We simply cannot compromise on this, can we? The overall quality of furniture depends mainly on the construction and choice of raw materials. If you’re buying a wooden piece, check if it’s FSC certified. For upholstered furniture, be sure to inspect the quality by asking for swatches. Doing a bit of research on where and how the brand sources its material helps in a big way. Don’t hesitate to get in touch with their sales representative for an in-depth answer to your queries.
Style: You wouldn’t want something you spend your hard-earned money on to stick out like a sore thumb! Try and visualize where the furniture would go and whether it complements the general theme of your house. These days you get all sorts of designs from Vintage to Contemporary to Transitional.

Hi, my name is Kevin and I’m from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Choosing products made in America is important to me because it supports local economies, creates jobs, helps the environment, and ensures ethical labor practices. I also find that American made products are usually of higher quality so although they’re a little more expensive, you save money in the long run. Before starting this website I was in the USMC infantry and nowadays I work on this website as a hobby.
