Proud to be American (Made)


Did you know that more than 90 percent of our collection is handcrafted exclusively for us by American artisans? It’s true. Room & Board is committed to supporting U.S.-based manufacturers and small, family-owned businesses. We work with 58 companies to create our products in 20 different states. Learn more about our furniture partners here.

This isn’t a recent marketing effort. It’s a practice we consider essential to our work. Manufacturing within the U.S. gives us greater control over quality and costs, and reduces our carbon footprint. Quite simply, it makes good business sense. It also allows us to support the livelihoods of people who share our passion for design and craftsmanship. When you shop with Room & Board, you bring the American art of furniture making into your home.

To celebrate our American-made philosophy and Independence Day, we’re hosting Proud to be American (Made), an online sweepstakes to give away a Chilton table (with our new Spalted Sugarberry top) to one lucky winner.

Handcrafted by Lyndon Furniture of Vermont, each Chilton table features a shape and grain as unique as the tree it came from. A solid slab of wood is sanded and finished, braced with walnut butterfly joints in any areas requiring extra support and secured to a hand-welded natural steel base.

Our new Spalted Sugarberry top option is a sustainably harvested U.S. wood, and its light golden color is the ideal backdrop for the distinctive grain pattern that results from spalting. Spalting naturally occurs as a tree starts to decline, creating color variations, shading and lines that are unique to each tree and its environment. The trees are harvested at the perfect time to capture this look while maintaining the strength and integrity of the wood.
