Do You Know Where Your Furniture Is Made?

Would it surprise you to learn that 86% of the wood furniture sold in the U.S. is not made here? That means the majority of America’s most familiar and famous furniture brands have chosen to export furniture manufacturing jobs. If given a full accounting, the price tags on off-shored products don’t fully reflect their costs in illegal harvesting, unsafe factories, abused workers, and environmental damage.

Our customers value the reassurances that the hardwood we use is sustainably harvested from regional forests; that our workers earn a good wage, receive benefits, have a safe and supportive workplace; that quality control is 24/7/365 to ensure their furniture is extraordinarily crafted, properly finished and is safe for their home and family; that their custom order can ship quickly with the smallest possible carbon footprint.

Roughing It? Hardly. Gat Creek Bespoke Pieces Brighten Historic Cabins

Call us biased but West Virginia has one of the country’s finest park systems, and of the 37 throughout the state, the best is Cacapon State Park. It’s just down the road from the Gat Creek workshop. So we were thrilled with the opportunity to craft furniture specifically for the park’s historic cabins undergoing their first updates in more than 50 years.
