"Here we've chosen to spotlight both the old and new- school companies and individuals who are churning out INSPIRING, made -in-the-south goods...
even when elsewhere might be easier and cheaper." - SL 2014
Charleston Forge wants to shout out 'kudos!' to Southern Living Magazine for their recent article on interior design, hand-made in the south. ...and of course, a special thanks for recognizing and including us.
Share in our delight and be sure to pick up the August 2014 issue of Southern Living Magazine. Locating the article titled "Still Southern Made" you will find Charleston Forge is proudly one of a small selection of designers they chose to highlight.
"[Southern Artisans] are energizing the world of interiors with bright colors, unique materials and fresh ideas. Here we've chosen to spotlight both the old and new- school companies and individuals who are churning out inspiring, made -in-the-south goods...even when elsewhere might be easier and cheaper. Because, let's be honest: BUYING LOCAL is often more expensive, just as you'd expect to pay more for a handcrafted beer than a regular old Budweiser, the same is true here. You're investing in the quality of the fabrics, construction, materials and design. Pieces are built one at a time, often by hand. They are crafted by true artisans, woodworkers, painters, and metalsmiths who are too quickly being replaced by machines and assembly lines in other parts of the world. This level of craftsmanship is the antithesis of our so called disposable society...creating heirlooms for future generations of this wonderful place we call home." - SL 2014
