“Copeland Furniture’s furniture manufacture includes a strong commitment to the principles of sustainability, durability and quality construction. This approach is more and more rare in American manufacturing, although the environmental issues of our times beg for more companies to think about the ramifications of how and what they manufacture. Copeland is a leader in demonstrating how a strong value system coupled with quality design and manufacturing can make a positive impact for this generation and those that will follow.” — Professor Rosanne Somerson – Rhode Island School of Design, Furniture Design.

In fact, sustainability is now considered an interior design feature that many people desire.
