Made in the U.S.A. Monday – Maine Cottage

One of the biggest purchases you will make for your home is furniture. Practically ever time I turn on the TV I see a commercial for bargain bottom priced furniture sets from odd looking pitchmen. Some use cartoons, some us flashes graphics, but they all have the same theme, cheap is good. Low prices are all they talk about. Not quality, not durability, not even stylish looks, cheap cheap, cheap. 

About 10 years ago I fell for that trap, I bought a cheap bedroom set from some big box store. It looked nice enough and I thought I got a deal. Three years in and it started to fall apart. Now ten years out and I need a new set. If I had bought quality the first time I probably wouldn’t be in this situation. 

In my quest for new furnishings I have been searching all over the web. I found a few places I like, but one of the stand outs is the “Maine Cottage”.  Their products really island-bedare impressive, from their bright and exciting color options, to their simple shaker design. They offer handcrafted pieces that will last you a lifetime, perhaps even more then a life time. 

They start with solid white maple wood and a skilled craftsman takes that wood and turns it into something truly beautiful. They offer you an impressive selection of colors and materials that will allow you to select a unique and personalized piece that will fit perfectly into your home decor. In a world of cheap particle board and mass production, Main Cottage stands apart. 

Personally I like their“Island Bed”. Its simple design and clean lines really draws me in. I can picture it in my bedroom and I know it is a sturdy solid item. It sells for $2290, which I realize is pricey, but if you want quality you have to pay for quality. I don’t have that type of cash on hand, but if and when I do I will certainly look at Maine Cottage, I might even take a drive down to their showroom. 

If you are in the market for some furniture, ditch the particle board and the flimsy design for some hand craft American made quality.
