It's not just the design of the products at Thrive Home Furnishings that are a throwback to the 1950s. So is the fact that all of the company's furniture is designed and manufactured in the United States — Los Angeles to be exact… The furniture produced by Thrive definitely gives a nod to the mid-century American design. With sleek lines and classic styling, you'd be forgiven for thinking these pieces are vintage — or at least that they absconded from the set of Mad Men. Classic sofas, armchairs and tables are directly influenced by mid-century designers — often with names to match (such as the Kennedy Rocking Chair shown above). From the company's website:
Thrive Home Furnishings is bringing eclectic mid century modern 50's style furniture back to the mainstream. Drawing inspiration from classic designers such as Florence Knoll, Thrive is on the forefront of Mid Century Modern designed furniture all produced in Thrive's state of the art Los Angeles factory.
In addition to producing their products domestically, which is an earth friendly measure in and of itself, Thrive prides itself on its other green credentials. Thrive's eco-friendly manufacturing process includes "ensuring the responsible harvesting of the wood used" in their furniture.
