If you want to know more about contemporary American design, this curated page is a great way to start, whether you love furniture design or want to see the latest in sustainable design. Angular, organic, or clean and minimalist, these furniture projects are as creative as they are stylish. Think sculptural dining chairs that look like works of art or flowing lounge chairs that invite you to relax and slow down with a good book.
