A Ferrari Is Not A Yugo "However They Are Both Cars"We are only trying to get your attention. In the market place today the coping of America's and European handmade custom heirloom furniture, doors, lighting, and hardware designs is running ramped. The use of high tech machines and cheap foreign labor make it possible to make paste board and veneers look like good product. There is no investment value in these products and do not compare to hand made investment quality furnishings. In fact, most of the famous name brands we all grew up believing were high quality have sold out in the name of profit to cheap foreign production manufacturing, mostly due to current government trade policy and corporate greed.

Why Production Furnishings Will Never Be Investment Quality
With the introduction of mass production in the early 20th century (and up to the present day) the newfound speed and ease of furniture building has drastically cut production costs. This is a manufacturing concept truly unique to any other time in recorded history. While this has been a grand idea for production in certain key industries, it has become the best thing of all for furniture industry profits because it drives down labor costs. However, with human nature being what it is, it also became the accepted trend to reduce material quality in an attempt to even further reduce cost. Reducing the material quality and embracing automation has been the unfortunate and prevalent trend found in modern furniture manufacturing and as if this was not already fleecing the American public, now we move and destroy further American jobs in the name of human greed. For example: China where a labor force that is paid in cents per-day is coupled with modern technology to further build even poorer quality furnishing under old brand names that used to stand for quality and the pride of American Master Craftsman.
