Local Manufacturing: Why it’s so Important to Us

Local Manufacturing: Why it’s so Important to Us

Circle Furniture News, Community and Boston, Eco Friendly, General, Green Design, Things To know
Circle Furniture has always been proud to support and work with local furniture manufacturers. The majority of our product line is made in America, and a large portion is made locally in New England. Our core objective is to provide our customers with the highest quality furniture, and we believe sourcing local materials and working with small local companies is an imperative part of that. We’ve come to learn that there is no reason to outsource wood. Some of the best and highest quality woods are grown right in our backyard, in New England. We’re also passionate about supporting the local economy. We live and work in the same neighborhoods you do. As members of the community, we hope to better our neighborhoods in every way we can.

We all love color. There is nothing better than throwing a fresh coat of paint on a wall to liven our space. Clean. Fresh. Ahhh. Inspiring, yes? Last week we were thrilled to host an event in our Boston store featuring Lisa Teague from Quiet Home Paints. Lisa, and her partner/daughter Andi, teamed up to create a line of paint that boasts vibrant, beautiful colors and is safe for the home.
