Come join us Thursday, May 21, 2015, from 5:30pm-8:30pm, to hear John D. Bassett III of Vaughan Bassett Furniture speak about keeping manufacturing in the USA and saving American jobs. He’ll also be signing copies of the New York Times Best Seller “Factory Man”, written by Beth Macy, which chronicles history of the Basset Family and their rise to domination of wood furniture manufacturing in the USA throughout the 20th century. It also addresses American furniture manufacturer’s brush with extinction as global capitalism led to outsourcing and the massive loss of 73,000 jobs, as well as the crippling of many southern furniture towns. It finally details John D. Bassett III’s years’ long Capital Hill fight to save these American jobs from Chinese takeover. The book is getting special treatment as Tom Hanks and Gary Goetzman plan its production as a miniseries for HBO.
Books will be available for a discounted purchase of $20. All proceeds from the book sales will go to the Dean Michael Clarizio Cancer Foundation, a New Jersey charity, and Suburban Furniture will be matching the donation to the foundation. Also Vaughan Bassett Furniture will be giving away a bedroom set valued up to $2000. All non-furniture attendees will have a chance to win!

Vermont Precision Woodworks and its predecessors have been in the woodworking business in Northern Vermont since the early 1900’s. In the early 70’s the plant started producing wood components for the musical instrument industry, particularly piano parts. This has helped us perfect our woodworking skills for detailed pieces. During the 1980’s, we became a wood furniture manufacturer when we started making beds and bunk beds by contract for dorms and residences. During this period, we excelled in making durable furniture that could withstand everyday wear. In 1985, the factory continued in the furniture business, fabricating children’s furniture made of hard maple.
Since then, VT Precision has become a wood furniture manufacturer of great reputation. Our hardwood furniture is renowned as being durable, solid, practical and, most importantly, absolutely beautiful.

In the early 70’s the plant started producing wood components for the musical instrument industry, particularly piano parts. This has helped us perfect our woodworking skills for detailed pieces. During the 1980’s, Vermont Precision began manufacturing twin and bunk beds for both contract and residential markets. Our Beds were being used in dorms and residential settings. During this period, we excelled in making durable furniture that could withstand everyday wear. In 1985, the factory continued in the furniture business, fabricating children’s furniture made of hard maple and cherry
The same expertise and attention to detail that went in to manufacturing Vermont Precision products has gone in to the sourcing of Bolton Furniture. We communicate with our sources on a regular basis giving them feedback to ensure the product being shipped to us meets our customers expectations.

At Suburban Furniture, we carry several different brands of furniture and we know it can be hard to make a decision about which brand is right for you. We thought we’d help you out by giving you a little more information about each brand. Now you’ll be able to have brand information in one place rather than searching for several different websites! Today we’d like to feature Vaughan-Bassett.
Vaughan-Bassett Furniture is a specialist in affordable, well-crafted furniture for the bedroom, and the largest producer of wood bedroom furniture in the U.S. While furniture plants across the country have permanently shuttered their doors due to overseas competition in recent years, Vaughan-Bassett chose to ensure that, at nearly 100 years old, the company would remain the largest employer in its hometown of Galax, Virginia by outfitting its plants with state-of-the-art equipment and updating all of its procedures.
Nearly 700 talented and hard-working craftspeople head to work at Vaughan-Bassett each day, proud in the knowledge that they are creating quality furnishings their fellow consumers can trust to live and sleep with every day. Thanks to the growing number of people who recognize how important domestic manufacturing is to the health of America’s economy and insist on buying American-made goods, the company has recently opened a second plant to satisfy the increased demand for its products. Vaughan-Bassett expects to create another 115 jobs over the next three years.
Every piece of furniture in Vaughan-Bassett’s Appalachian Hardwood Collection is made from either solid oak or solid cherry. Along with natural beauty, furniture crafted from solid wood offers durability and longevity, an important factor to consider when shopping for your bedroom. But don’t worry about the forests! As a founding member of the Sustainable Furniture Council, Vaughan-Bassett is committed to manufacturing furniture in a responsible and environmentally friendly manner. All lumber is harvested within a day’s drive of its factories in Virginia—reducing the carbon footprint associated with the transport of raw materials. Through its “One for One” program, Vaughan-Bassett has contributed hundreds of thousands of tree seedlings to the Virginia Department of Forestry. The planting of these maple, oaks, ash, pine, poplar and applewood trees allow the replacement of every tree used in the production of its bedroom suites. Carl E. Garrison III, a Virginia state forester, calls “planting one new tree in Virginia for every tree you harvest each year, sustainability at its best.”
Domestic production translates to fast delivery to the retailers who feature Vaughan-Bassett’s products online and on their floors, and subsequently, to your home. Even on special orders. That’s especially important, because every piece of furniture Vaughan-Bassett makes is available in multiple finishes—affording you the ultimate freedom of choice in design and color when furnishing your home.
So come by Suburban Furniture today to check out our selection of Vaughan-Bassett furniture and find your perfect fit!
