Tronk: Modern Design, Made in America

As the ICFF (International Contemporary Furniture Fair) Opens in New York, we continue to highlight exhibitors whose products are Made-in-USA.Tronk Design is a relatively new company, founded in 2013 by a couple of friends from Ohio. Based in Cincinnati, the company combines minimalism with quality materials and good craftsmanship.According to owner/designer Brad Musuraca, “The beauty of the material speaks for itself. We try to keep our pieces as slim and elegant as possible without sacrificing functionality. The style is minimalist, but each item has subtle details that add a little pop to catch the eye.”These clever Franklin shelves can be installed on the inside or the outside of corners.

Check out the Tronk website to see more.

 

The Amazing Creations of Michael Graham: Made in USA

Why should a tabletop be a simple slab of wood or glass and not a means of showing-off things that are important to you?

Disclosure: We’ll get a small commission if you buy through the links in this post: Please do!Michael Graham has the answer with dining tables and coffee tables that can be used to display keepsakes, store wine and more!
He designs and creates his furniture in the Los Angeles Arts District with the help of his faithful companion, Dr. Watson. The pieces are made with wood from 1920’s factories, 90-year-old grape crates and other repurposed materials.I especially love this Shadowbox Table, where I could show off some of my  WWII aviation items. My Dad’s service in the Army Air Corps inspired my collection and it would be great to see the aviator goggles, leather fighter pilot’s cap, and colorful post cards on view every day. Michael Graham says he uses the table he built for himself to display books and hide the TV remote from Dr. watson.

His most stunning design may be this industrial floor lamp made out of wine barrel rings , a vintage surveyor’s tripod and an Edison style LED bulb. Enjoy browsing.

Fieldstone Artistry: Contemporary Lighting and Furniture Made in America

I have a special place in my heart for furniture and lighting that combines modern design with the warmth of natural materials. So, when I saw this Twilight Pendant Lamp at a recent craft show, I immediately fell in love with it.  It was made by Fieldstone Artistry, an upstate New York company started In 2016 by husband and wife team, B.R. Delaney & Amy Myers-Delaney.
When I went to their website, I realized that there are multiple variations on the lamp. This design is called the Chiaroscuro.

The company makes a wide variety of pieces using local materials and you can see lots of photos on both their website and Instagram @fieldstonearts.
