Domestic Furniture Company is a Bright Spot in a Hard-Hit Industry
Our Buy American Mention of the Week!
by Roger Simmermaker
January 19, 2003

If you've found it difficult to locate the American-made furniture you've been searching for, your search may be over after you read this article.

American-owned Montgomery Street Furniture Company has custom built furniture for George W. Bush, and they can custom build furniture for you too. And it doesn't matter if you only want a simple footstool or a large entertainment center, because you're guaranteed to get a high-quality American-made product.

Brian VanNamee, the proud president of Montgomery Street Furniture Co., manages 25 stores spread throughout New York, Pennsylvania and Massachusetts. But even if you don't live in one of these states and can't get to one of their stores, you can still contact them through their website at and they will work with you to fulfill your furniture needs.

Brian enjoys bucking the trend in an industry where American jobs are slowly gravitating overseas. He was tempted to expand into more states with more stores, but realized that doing so may have sacrificed quality for volume. He would much rather see his company focus on high-quality, custom-built furniture than risk selling an inferior product. This allows Montgomery Street to offer a lifetime warranty for their furniture, which can be shipped worldwide.

In addition to making all their furniture right here in the USA, they obtain their wood from nearby Pennsylvania, unless a customer requests a specific type of wood such as Brazilian Cherry.

Buying American-made products from American-owned companies like this is just the so-called economic stimulus this country needs. Any stimulus package geared toward more consumption by consumers is likely to do more for foreign producers than American producers unless we make a conscious decision to buy American.

It is especially gratifying to support American companies like these that take so much pride in the fact that all their products are made in USA, and to be able to reward the small businesses that truly deserve our consumer patriotism.
