Local Pride - By Anna Zappia

Up Close & Personal
Using local artists and fabricators is at the forefront of everyone's minds
because people want to know as much as possible about the goods they
purchase. " I think we want more in our lives that has not been shipped
all over, has not been overprocessed, and has fewer chemicals. Anything
you can do to source at the grassroots, right where you live, is so important
in our world today, " says Vanderslice.
With nearby purveyors, consumers can often watch the product being made.
" This is a growing trend: Just like people want to see the farm where the
produce is grown that will be used in a restaurant, they want to see where
their furniture is made, " Zimmerman explains. " It's always a really delightful
experience bringing visitors through our space and showing them what
we have here. "

When working locally, design professionals can avoid the hassles and high
costs associated with doing business, a major plus for companies keeping
a tighter rein on budgets. " It's very reliable now to get things made locally, "
adds Zimmerman. " You don't have those problems with transportation,
the supply chain, or any of the other issues that can hold up an order. If
you're going to spend $20,000 on a table, it's nice to know that it is going
to be delivered by a certain time. "
Another consideration to having things made locally as opposed to buying
something off the shelf is the timelines. " Now, the pace of life has slowed,
and the demands on a schedule have become much more reasonable, "
says Bragg. " All of a sudden, people can make you a chair quicker than you
can buy one. It's changing. "

Local products enhance our experiences when we enter a space or take
a vacation, and ultimately, they enhance our experiences with one another.
Bragg adds, " I think that people feel it's more rewarding when they're
contributing in some way to a place they have visited, because it offers
another level of understanding and appreciation of that place. "
