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!
