Dalton, Ga. -- Emily Morrow Home participated in the first Made in America Trade Show, held in Indianapolis, October 3-6. The event brought together 800 exhibitors and over 30,000 attendees, forming the largest-ever network of industrial professionals, keynote speakers, and consumers for one common goal: raising awareness for the economic, environmental, and community impact of American manufacturing.
Emily Morrow Finkell, CEO and founder of Emily Morrow Home, was involved in the show from the beginning. In addition to being a Bronze sponsor and exhibitor, Finkell was the official designer of the Made in America exhibition and was responsible for fashioning the stage for all productions held during the four-day show. On-stage events included numerous speakers, like My Pillow founder Michael J. Lindell; a Big & Rich country music concert; a celebration honoring U.S. military veterans; and a closing prayer ceremony featuring Michael W. Smith.
Finkell was also involved in several room designs, which were displayed throughout the convention. Together, these rooms celebrated the beauty and quality of American-made products in the home. Emily Morrow Home hardwoods were included in the bedroom display, a room specifically highlighting products made by women-owned brands.
A separate living room display, designed by Finkell, featured Emily Morrow Home hardwood, Paddock from the Metropolitan Collection, as well as specially-made home décor products and furnishings and accessories from some of Finkell's favorite American-made brands. Products included in the room design included barn doors made by American OEM, sofa and cushions by Aria Furniture Designs, and pillows and rug from Loominairies. Also featured were beautiful, wooden American flags, made from post-industrial reclaimed hardwood, made exclusively for the Made in American trade show attendees to purchase.
“I designed the living room as the ultimate guide for living the American life,” said Finkell. “Every piece is exquisitely made by manufacturers that are dedicated to their craft and to the livelihood of the American worker. For me, the production of our hardwoods is just part of our American story. Our wood is naturally harvested from safe, domestically managed forests with timber that is grown following the Responsible Procurement Program guidelines. We sell our hardwoods through select flooring retailers throughout the nation that are also committed to following their American Dream.”
