"Slow" Furniture Movement Highlights Handcrafted Pieces Made by American Artisans
You've probably heard about the blowback against "fast fashion," where buyers are making meaningful effort to invest in better-made, classic pieces that will stand the test of time. The same concept is in play for "slow" furniture, with consumers being more intentional about purchasing items that aren't destined for the landfill in just a few years. American-made furniture custom-crafted with heirloom-quality materials and best practices can check both boxes for buyers: affordability and quality. Choose from traditional to modern styles specify the exact size, style, firmness and fabric - as well as arm shape and even pillows - you desire for a one-of-a-kind result that sets your home apart for many years to come. Visit the expansive A Royal Suite Home Furnishings showroom to create your perfect piece today.
