As the 4th of July nears, Americans are showing their pride more than ever. While it’s practically unconstitutional to dislike fireworks, BBQ and Springsteen, the celebration of America’s independence is much more than fun parties and a day off of work…

Zapwater client, Room & Board, is proud that more than 90 percent of the products they sell are handcrafted in the U.S. to give customers the best combination of quality and price. Their furniture partners include upholsterers in North Carolina, Virginia and Texas, metalworkers in Minnesota, Wisconsin and Alabama and woodworkers in Vermont, New York, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Wisconsin, North Dakota and Oregon.

By seeking out US-based companies, Room & Board is reducing their environmental impact, committing to responsibly sourced materials and reinvesting in local communities. By working with American vendors, Room & Board is helping to eliminate the middleman and works directly with artisans who handcraft each piece. Because Room & Board works directly with vendors, custom options are available in less than 8 weeks and at outstanding prices.

By shopping at Room & Board, you are supporting local businesses as well as creating a beautiful, classically cool space. What could be better?!

To celebrate the USA and Room & Board’s amazing furniture and accessories, I’ve chosen some of my favorite red, white and blue American-made pieces from their current collection.
