Crafted in Small Town USA and Devoted to People and the Planet The company is committed to crafting every Danielson Designs' product in small town, USA. "We know it would be cheaper to make our products overseas," says Annie. "But we are 100% committed to consistently providing a better designed, better crafted product than any overseas manufacturer." All Danielson Designs' products are eco-friendly, made from 100 percent recycled wood and finished only with water-based varnishes and paints. "Sure, it would be easier to use oil-based lacquers -- that's what most companies do -- but we've always used water-based products. It's not only better for the planet, but it's better for our people who are elbow-deep in these materials all day long." Making More than A Purchase ... Making A Difference The Danielsons started their company in a small, red barn in the mountains of Trinidad, Colo., the old mining town they call home. "Our sole motivation was to provide employment in the local area during some tough economic times," says Mark. "We call it the Power of the Pebble. We've been amazed at the ripple effects from the tiny pebble we threw 16 years ago, from the creation of jobs for our small rural town to building water wells in Africa. We invite our customers to be part of our story and hope they are inspired to toss pebbles of their own." Danielson Designs' wall decor products are sold by more than 5,000 independent specialty retailers across the United States and Canada. To find out more, visit
