My husband and I purchased a Master-piece Pier Group unit about 18 years ago. We absolutely love it. It still looks brand new and is in great condition because of its quality and work put into it. The doors, drawers and knobs are still functioning as the did when we purchased it. It’s a piece you will never get tired of looking at. Eighteen years later, we are under construction and I was looking for something similar in a king size and panicked because I couldn’t remember where I purchased my bedroom set. I then remember seeing a metal brass emblem somewhere on the unit and found the makers of the furniture. Wow, I was excited. You’ll always know where to find them with the signature label. No one makes furniture like this anymore.

Thank you, Rosemary. We are so happy you found us again!
Furniture makers have been leaving their identifying signature or mark on their finished pieces as far back as the 18th century. At Furniture Traditions, their label identifies furniture crafted by them, from design to finished product. On their earlier furniture, their label signature was burned-in or branded on the wood. Today, Furniture Traditions’ metal emblem found on all their furniture, reads “American Heirloom” over their logo with “Proudly Made in U.S.A.” underneath.
For Furniture Traditions, “Proudly Made in U.S.A.” means more than just “assembled” in America. It means their furniture is crafted by them in America with quality wood (Oak and Alder hardwood) from managed forests in America. In addition to their metal emblem, since their furniture is “bench made”, meaning an individual craftsman works on each piece, the craftsman adds his signature on each piece he makes.
