Maiden Home was founded in 2015, and the brand sells sofas, sectionals, chairs, bed, ottomans, and more. Each piece of their furniture is handcrafted in North Carolina by skilled craftsmen with decades of experience, and they use high-quality, non-toxic materials to create products that will last. Maiden Home offers a mix of classic, modern, and mid-century designs, and because of its direct-to-consumer model, its products often cost thousands less than you might otherwise pay for American-made goods.

Stickley is one of the best-known makers of high-end, wooden furniture, and it’s safe to say that after 120 years, the brand has successfully stood the test of time!
