HGTV “Home Town’s” Ben and Erin Napier Are Launching an American-Made Furniture Line and We Can’t Wait

If you’ve watched HGTV’s “Home Town” with Ben and Erin Napier, you know that Ben has a serious knack for building and Erin has an eye for design– and now, they get to showcase it like never before.

“Today we’re proud to announce our partnership with Vaughan-Bassett– One of America’s last solid wood furniture manufacturers, who have been making millions of affordable heirloom pieces since 1919, keeping their small town, Galax, Virginia, prospering,” Erin shared in an Instagram post.

According to Erin’s post, creating an American-made furniture line has always been a dream of Ben’s.

“Soon after the beginning of this TV adventure, an overseas furniture manufacturer reached out to us about creating a furniture line. The offer was more money than we ever could have imagined in our lifetime, more than our families could ever imagine. We said “thank you, but no thank you” without hesitation,” she shared.

For Ben and Erin, it was important that the furniture be manufactured in America so they could stay true to their mission of revitalizing small-town USA.

“If we are going to be serious about revitalizing small-town America, we have to be serious about making things in America to keep our hometowns and their workforce strong,” she said.

She said we can expect to see the furniture in stores and online in early 2019.

“The Scotsman and Laurel Mercantile furniture lines will be antique-inspired, designed by us, and made right here in the U.S. from Virginia hardwoods, and every time a tree is cut to build your beds or tables, another one is planted to replace it,” she shared of the furniture line. “We believe this is the right way to take the next step in our company, and are thrilled to partner with Vaughan-Bassett. You can find our lines in stores across America January 2019.”
