Disappointed with the quality they found in the generic stores and catalogs when furnishing their first home, Dennis & Denise Blankemeyer set about creating the types off items they wanted for themselves. Though the prices may be a bit steep, these pieces feel like they have a soul, or at the very least, some history.
Our favorites are the found objects from abandoned factories, foundries and barns that they have been given new lives as modern furniture. Carts have become coffee tables and work benches have morphed into kitchen islands. They have several locations in Ohio where they weld, build, sandblast, rewire, create and finish their furniture. According to their web site, all of their furniture is "Designed and Built in Middle America" - a rarity these days!
We love unique, vintage finds - American Furnishings really embodies these qualities.
