“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.

We’ve noticed a trend in the past few years regarding the shopping and purchasing behavior of our customers. Although the furniture industry is certainly not the only one to experience a change in the pattern of sales, it’s interesting to note how current/past events and situations influence American consumers’ behavior when it comes to furnishing their homes. And because your buying habits have changed, that means our business has had to change, too. Here’s our take on the influences that have shaped – and will continue to shape – the world of home furnishings and décor.

There are many aspects to interior design, including functionality, aesthetics, size and more. But another aspect has been added to the design of home and office furnishings in the past decade or so: sustainability. What manufacturers do to preserve our environment while producing the items with which we want to furnish our space has become a vital issue for many consumers. In fact, sustainability is now considered an interior design feature that many people desire.
