What is the average run size of the products you sell?
While we do have products with high unit volume, most would fall into the small-scale and medium-scale categories. We work hard to eliminate batch runs, preferring more frequent production of lower volumes. We do one-at-a-time with at least 30 percent of our volume.
Chilton Table, $2,699.
What everyday item would you like to see made domestically?
More wood products like tables, storage cases, and chairs. Forests tend to be better managed here than in many parts of the world. I also am challenged by the harvest of American woods (like walnut) being sent across the world only to be fabricated into products that are sent back to our market.
Cloak Pendant, $499.
What do you wish was easier to make and source in the USA?
We have worked hard to find a good network of sources for the majority of our product lines and feel confident in our partners. With that said, we believe textiles represent the largest opportunity here in the USA.
Crane Floor Lamp, $499.
What American-made products are you tired of seeing?
There are many products that lead with the “Made in America” message but carry extremely high price tags. So I’d like to see long-lasting designs and quality at a price that represents a value in terms of what the product does or means to someone.
Dunn Cocktail Table, $599.
What’s your best seller?
The Callan chair, handcrafted by Precedent Furniture of Newton, North Carolina ($1,899).
