1. Art Addiction
Since the late 90’s Art Addiction has been the go-to stop in New York City for designers, architects, and those in the know for high quality art products & services. Over the years they’ve developed their own signature product-line of stylized photography printed on acrylic that they call Art:Lex. The sleek, high quality product transformed Art Addiction into a destination for designers looking to add a touch of sophistication to projects of all types. In 2017, Art Addiction expanded beyond their New York City location and opened an 11,000 square foot showroom in High Point, North Carolina that has allowed them to expand their reach to a worldwide audience.
2. Benjamin Maier Ceramics
For sixteen years, Benjamin Maier has created stunning handmade works in his northern Michigan studio employing both wood and soda fired kilns. His pieces are utilitarian – plates, vases, cups, teapots – as well as artistic opportunities to play with surface tensions, negative spaces, and architectural shapes. His Leland gallery has itself become a destination for summer visitors, but it is his own the time apart in the studio creating and crafting that gives “meaning and rhythm” to Benjamin Maier’s pottery and his life.

4. Magnuson Group
For over 90 years, the Magnuson family has been providing a unique blend of excellent product design, quality, value and customer service. They built their name by designing, manufacturing and marketing the industry’s finest products within their focused niche of support furniture and accessory products.

They remain committed to delivering the finest design, quality, value and customer service available in the market.
5. STAK Ceramics
Stak Ceramics strives to create “design inspired by living well.” Founders Heather Connolly and Myles Geyman take notice of the little things in life, and their work brings contour and color to the otherwise mundane. Passion for their craft brought the two together in a community ceramics studio in Pittsburgh. After love, marriage, family – together they create work meant to celebrate their day to day. Each creation holds pieces of the two of them from Heather’s love of baking to Myles’s training in industrial product design – the thoughtful balance between form and function becomes an ode to their own well lived life.
