I was sad to read that NoNetz, an American manufacturer of innovative, no-chafe men’s swimwear, has started to produce its products in China. The news came in a disheartening article on CNN Money, entitled, “Trump is Pushing ‘Buy American’ But Customers (Mostly) Don’t Care.”
The sobering premise: after decades of buying cheap, foreign made merchandise, most Americans can’t bring themselves to shell out the extra money that comes along with the “Made in USA” label. This despite the fact that 85% of consumers say they want to buy American.

Please do!With the popularity of tiny houses and small-space living, an invention that allows you to make a table disappear was sure to be a hit. That’s what the folks from Floyd accomplished several years ago with the introduction of the Floyd Leg.
We bought a set of coffee table height legs at the time, rounded up some teakwood from a crumbling bench and Voila! A lovely modern piece. Depending on the top you use, you can stow it away, use it as a piece of wall art, etc., so it allows your creative side to shine through.
So what’s new from Floyd? Well, check out the Floyd Platform Bed. It’s a similar concept to the table, but results in a minimalist sleeping environment.The new Floyd Coat Rack is capable of holding up to 25 lbs of stuff. Use your imagination – this is a utility piece and you can hang a lamp on it if you are so inclined.We’ve also purchased the taller table legs and stored them away until our planned down-sizing. We love the fact that the items are made in America, are minimalist and super functional.
We’ve decided to expand our “What’s New” feature from one week to two. Hope you enjoy it.We’ve visited the Thomas Moser store in Boston several times and been amazed by the design perfection of its product line. Though its inspiration comes from 18th century America, this furniture would be at home in any modern room. The company’s two newest products are the Foreside Bed, shown at the top of the page, and the Hoops Mirror line.The mirrors, available in three sizes, take design cues from Shaker boxes and traditional mirrors, but have a modern twist. They are offered in walnut, white oak, and cherry.
The bed is almost stark in its simplicity, but a closer look reveals details that suggest a traditional Windsor Chair. Below are a few shots we took on our most recent trip to the store, located at:
