Mclean, VA, July 04, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- Rowe Fine Furniture, a leading manufacturer of custom upholstered furniture, participated in a press conference celebrating manufacturers who are making the commitment to produce in the U.S.A.
The conference, led by House Beautiful Editor in Chief Newell Turner and North Carolina Senator Kay Hagan, highlighted the importance of supporting American-made products. The conference emphasized investing in American businesses to stimulate the economy and boost job creation.
The furniture industry in particular has been a primary contributor to the health of local economies in states such as Hagan’s own North Carolina for years. Turner and Senator Hagan maintain that continued support for the industry will have this effect nationally.
“As a domestic manufacturer, we understand the significance of our commitment to U.S. production, says Stefanie Lucas, CEO of Rowe Furniture. We are proud to be able to support our local economy as well as offer our consumers quality craftsmanship coupled with quick delivery, a major advantage to U.S. production.”
The conference served as a precursor to the House Beautiful April issue which focused on American design. House Beautiful’s week long effort to promote American design included an on-the-street chair giveaway, an online chair scavenger hunt, as well as social events throughout Washington, D.C. Rowe donated chairs to both the on-the-street and online giveaways.
