The Be Stated blog is written and edited by the founders and associates of The Stated Home website. Our mission at The Stated Home is to serve as a single destination for the purchase of quality furnishings that are responsibly made in America. To support our customers, our website provides written and video educational tools on the manufacture and selection of furniture. One of those tools is this blog.

In order to comply with FTC disclosure requirements, we are going to describe our disclosure policy for the blog. Even though The Stated Home makes money when you purchase furniture from the website, the purpose of this blog is to educate and entertain, not to strong-arm you into buying. We understand that no one likes pressure.

Before we write a post, we do a lot of research, and we take pride in sharing the results of that research and our honest opinions. Our research could involve reading up on furniture construction techniques, taking a trip, or doing a DIY project. We only endorse products, companies, or experiences that we personally believe are worthy of endorsement. If we write about a product that we get for free, we will clearly disclose that fact. If we are paid to write a post, we will disclose that as well. We only hope that we will have plenty of opportunities to disclose gifts and payments. What we say will never be influenced by anything that we may receive.
