It should also be noted that, generally, most upholstery companies manufacture their furniture domestically,... while most case goods are made overseas.
Some of the manufacturers featured here are carrying forward a tradition started decades ago, while others are much newer.

Marc Taggart & Company makes American furniture with a very distinctly Western style. Their Molesworth furniture pays homage to Thomas Canada Molesworth who furnished the Moses Annenberg lodge and hotels in Wyoming and Montana.
Molesworth's work became so popular in the 1900s that he went on to furnish the homes of some very notable celebrities, including the TE Ranch which had once belonged to Buffalo Bill.
The family-owned company was founded by the present owner's grandfather, who was one of Molesworth's first customers, and the family maintained a relationship with him.
The reproductions are signed by the craftsmen who make them and are also numbered to make authentication easier.
