Whether it's a deck, a patio, or a shady spot in the yard, we all have a favorite summer outdoor space that becomes an extension to our living quarters during the warmer months. My family's outdoor spaces (a porch AND a patio), are both in drastic need of makeovers before summer is in full swing.I have been on the hunt for the perfect American made items to make these spaces great for both entertaining our friends and for hanging with each other. Here are five made in the USA items that I found in my search that would be a perfect addition to anyone's outdoor space.
Don't miss our list of made in USA patio furniture.
Get Your Outdoor Space Ready for Summer in American Made Style
1.The Montauk Collection of indoor/outdoor furniture by Manchester Wood Update 3/15/22: Sadly, since this article was written in 2015 Manchester Wood has gone out of business.
All of the pieces in this collection- chair (single or double), coffee table, side table, and child's chair- are crafted from solid American ash and contain rust free hardware. What I LOVE most about the Montauk Collection (okay, besides it's cool retro 1920s vibe!) is the fact that each piece folds up for easy transport- perfect for moving chairs and tables from my porch to the patio when entertaining.

Stay out of the sun in style with one of these patio umbrellas that come in a great selection of patterns and colors. The high performance fabrics used to make them are stain, mildew and fade resistant.

Not all of the rugs they make are American made, but there is a great selection of outdoor rugs to choose from that are, with many different styles and colors to choose from.
