Please send me a new couch!

old couch

We finished our basement about eight years ago, and one of our big purchases was a huge sectional couch we could sit on to watch T.V.  At the time I bought it, I was not nearly as concerned about buying American as I am today.  So I can’t honestly tell you where that couch was made.  Well, after years of the couch being used rather extensively by our family, my son’s legions of teenage friends and by our dogs, the couch is beat.  Not quite as bad as the couch above, but getting close.

My son isn’t off to college for six months and our giant Lab puppy is in a complete chew mode, so I won’t be replacing the horrible couch next week, but I am in the market.  So I was happy to come across a great company, Younger Furniture, all of whose furniture is made in North Carolina by members of our extended American family.  This firm produces some really beautiful furniture.  Some of my favorites are the Julia couch,

the Hanna chair,

and the Rose chair.

If you are in the market for some great American made couches or upholstered chairs, the Younger Company has got the goods for you!  Now, you will have to excuse me, but I have to go determine if a family of rats has taken up residence in the interior of my ratty sectional couch.

    John– Love the pic of the couch, which could easily have come from one of the many houses I shared with friends in school. And just in case you need another local source, here’s a link to an Oregon Company we ran across when we were shopping for couches–

    Good luck keeping your lab puppy off whatever you buy!
