Made in the USA
From sea to shining sea, the United States holds a wide stratum of makers. Here we’ve collected the newest products from our favorite welders, weavers, and woodworkers, to name just a few.
Inigo Elizalde’s woven dhurries are hand-knotted in Nepal, but he’s deconstructed a few of his boldest patterns into a collection of pillows, all printed in North Carolina and sewn in New York City.
Cranbrook Academy of Art graduate Matthew Plumstead made his debut at ICFF with his configurable wood valet, kitted out with clip-on rubber hooks, shelves, and widgets for holding domestic detritus.
This overhead lamp stems from Los Angeles designer Matt Gagnon’s fascination with open-truss roof structures and the intimate interior space they create. Here, wool yarn wrapped around the inside of a poplar frame contrasts with the crisp cotton rope on the exterior.
Made in Milwaukee from locally harvested walnut and assembled with old-school mortise and tenon joints, Misewell’s Poet Stool keeps it current with powder-coated recycled steel footrests.
Sacramento-based Schmitt Design slip-cast two pendant light silhouettes—slender and squat—in translucent porcelain that, when turned on, emit a warm glow. Fabric-wrapped cords come in three colors.
Riffing on the concept behind a pin-impression toy, the Los Angeles designer Adam Friedman came up with a seat whose solid walnut blocks conform to the sitter’s body thanks to the foam padding underneath them.
Oregon-based Juju Papers prints all of its wallpaper with water-based inks on sustainably harvested paper. The patterns are folk art–inspired, but the colors are strictly au courant, like the neon orange (Pantone 805U) shown here in the “Sunset” combination.
PVC water mains from Detroit are transformed once Jack Craig heats and manipulates the raw material, converting it into seating—a departure from the pipes’ “highly machined geometry.”
Contemporary Ohio-based designer Mark Moskovitz channels the Late Middle Ages by basing his newest collection on a table spotted in a 15th-century Dutch painting by Dieric Bouts.
