A region-by-region roundup of some of our favorite U.S.-made furniture and accessories, all new for 2018 (plus a spotlighted look at some iconic pieces from history).

WEST

Iacoli & McAllister Acis No 7.1 Pendant

Composed of brass and powder-coated steel tubes that range in size from three to 18 inches, the Acis No. 7.1 hanging light system can be arranged in almost endless configurations on a 60-inch-long mount.

Rejuvenation O&G Ames Floor Lamp

Taking its cue from the sweeping curves of medieval flying buttresses, the O&G Ames floor lamp features a cast base in brushed or burnished brass and is topped with a linen shade in white or black.

Croft House Sierra Leather Chair in Havana

Nestled in an ultra thin steel frame with the help of sturdy jute webbing, the Leather Sierra chair’s seat is decidedly cushy. Like every piece made by Croft House, the lounge chair has many customizable options.

Bend Goods Macrame Art Piece

Bend’s wire furniture is all hand bent and spot welded using recyclable metals. The same is true of its custom macramé wall hanging, which combines wire with woven yarn in a range of bright, ’70s-inspired colors.

Classic: Jacob Bromwell (Los Angeles‚ California)

Designed in 1819, the Jacob Bromwell cheese grater set the standard for all successors. The boxy stainless steel body includes three grating surfaces, plus a slicer. The company, which manufactures in multiple states‚ estimates that one in four American households owns a Bromwell grater.

MIDWEST

Wooda Small Elemental Top

Wisconsin manufacturer Wooda maintains an open call for designers to submit ideas that put a new spin on their namesake material, like Alvaro Uribe’s Small Elemental top.

Andrew Neyer Dune Light

Andrew Neyer designs whimsical lighting fixtures that can be grouped to form sculptural constellations. Together, the powder-coated aluminum shades of Dune, available in three sizes, mimic a rolling landscape.

Brush Factory Seb Credenza

In a nod to Danish midcentury design, the Seb credenza features a rounded-edge profile and mortise-and-tenon joinery. Handmade from sustainably harvested hardwoods, it has a hole in the back to help with cord management.

Misewell Wave Coat Rack – Ash and Moss Green

Founded by brothers Vincent and Paul Georgeson, Misewell manufactures its furniture and lighting fixtures in seven states. Its simple Wave coat rack combines a solid ash frame and powder-coated steel wire chassis.

Louise Gray Ida Little Quilt

A smaller version of Louise Gray’s signature throw, the Ida Little quilt is nonetheless big on visual impact. Handmade in Minneapolis, it can be used as a baby blanket or displayed as a work of art.



Corbé Homesteader Medium Planter in Poppy

Designers Kaitlyn and Ryan Lawless of Corbé craft all their porcelain wares by hand. Their Medium planter comes in a rounded or angular silhouette with several glaze options, including a rich satin-matte orange.

Blu Dot Bloke Velvet Lounge Chair

The sheltering high back of Blu Dot’s Bloke Velvet lounge chair forms a comfortable nook. Part of a collection that also includes a sectional, the seat rests on a hardwood frame and powder-coated steel legs.

Classic: Airstream (Jackson Center, Ohio)

More than half the Airstreams built since Wally Byam designed the first travel trailer‚ in 1929‚ are still taking to the road. Like all Airstreams‚ the iconic Bambi‚ introduced in 1961‚ has an aerodynamic shape and lightweight aluminum construction that makes it a breeze to tow. Elements of its design live on in current models.

SOUTH

Elijah Leed Ada Pendant

Constructed of etched walnut and brushed brass, the elemental Ada pendant features a pivoting arm that can be adjusted into a slanted or perpendicular position from a drop of 16 to 48 inches.

East Fork Dinner Plate

While its warm rust color makes the Utah line of dinnerware perfect for display, the collection is also strong enough for everyday use. The hand-glazed pieces are made from regional materials and are dishwasher-safe.

Orbix Hot Glass Caelum Series

Husband-and-wife Cal and Christy Breed create colorful handcrafted glassware in Alabama’s Appalachian foothills. Caelum is a series of blown vessels with carved surfaces that resemble chiseled wood.

Skylar Morgan Hillock Armoire

The sinker cypress Hillock armoire uses that most basic of forms—the half moon dowel—to great visual effect. The six-foot-tall cabinet is lined in maple and outfitted with leather shelves and a hanging rod.

Classic: Capel Rugs (Troy, North Carolina)

In 1917‚ anticipating the impact of mechanical tractors on his business producing cotton ends for plow lines‚ A. Leon Capel shifted gears. Instead of making rope for mule reins‚ he braided the cotton into oval rugs. They were picked up by Sears Roebuck and JC Penney‚ and the now 100-year-old brand took off.
