Made in the USA

By Holly Peterson

According to the Bureau of Economic Analysis, American manufacturing
hit its post war peak in 1951, when it accounted for 27.9 % of the gross domestic
 product. By 2010 that percentage was down to just 11.7%.

I'm all for buying American, but to buy American we need to make American.

In the latest issue of Dwell Magazine, was an article delivering 61
fabulous and functional American made items ranging from an Igloo cooler
to a motorcycle. Somewhere wedged in between the John Deere
Tractor and the Fire Extinguisher I discovered some great furniture pieces.

Below are barstools from Studio Dunn made from sustainably harvested
hardwood sourced from forests in the Midwest and on the East Coast. This small Rhode
Island company was founded just last year but I see longevity in their future.

This crib by Ducduc delivers the utmost in style when it comes to decorating
a nursery. Produced not far outside New York City, Ducduc designs
fantastic children's furniture including changers, chairs, desks and storage.

This gorgeous chair by Plexi-Craft designed by BNO is just one example
of what they can do. Plexi-Craft has been designing and fabricating custom
acrylic furniture in New York City of over 50 years.

Contact Design Diva if you believe in buying American and
would like help finding those rare pieces for your home.

Ode To The Ottoman

By Holly Peterson

 Ah, the ottoman. What can't this piece of furniture do!?
From big to small, square to round this multi-functional piece of furniture
has come a long way. We can rest our feet, sit, sleep and store all kinds of goods.
With such a huge selection to choose from these days, it has never been easier
to find the perfect one for your home.

If your short on space, you might need something like this. Can you believe this
ottoman actually unfolds into a bed!? We're all used to the storage ottomans
by now, but this gives new meaning to multi-functional.

If your an echo chic type, then you'll love this cube ottoman upholstered in coffee bean
bags. This would be a perfect addition to any room, adding texture, color and functionality.

Contact Design Diva if your looking for ways to add additional seating or
 want to make a statement with a bold ottoman cocktail table.
