A number of customers have phoned and emailed us recently asking what happened to Copeland Furniture in our online shopping store. Not to worry, it’s still here. We apologize. We’ve had a couple issues with the Copeland section of our website and we’re working as fast as we can to get them corrected. If you’re looking to shop online for Vermont made furniture and can’t find what you need on our website, please give us a call.
We recently added a large bedroom collection to our online gallery called the Moduluxe Collection. This collection is made by Copeland Furniture of Bradford, Vermont. The Moduluxe Collection is comprised of almost 40 pieces of bedroom furniture that is highly customizable. The pieces within this collection can be paired together as stand alone pieces, or can be configured as sectional bedroom furniture for a semi-built in look. Every piece of furniture in this collection is available in your choice of natural maple, walnut, or cherry hardwood, and can be customized with 12 stain options.
The 29″ and 35″ Series each have 3 modern platform beds. These beds feature a deeply set plinth base for a dramatic floating motif. The beds are available in three headboard types: a panel headboard, a clapboard headboard, and an upholstered headboard (available in leather or microfiber). The height of the headboard depends on the series, it will either be 29″ high or 35″ high.
If you’re looking for a bed with storage, the Moduluxe Storage Bed Collection has storage beds available in 3 different headboards. The headboard choices are the same as the 29″ and 35″ series: panel, clapboard, or upholstered headboards. The storage bed is always 35″ high to accommodate the under bed storage. The storage beds feature 4, eight inch deep, sub-mounted drawers. This provides inconspicuous storage, freeing up extra space in your bedroom. The storage bed is a perfect option for a small bedroom or studio apartment.
There are two types of integrated nightstands that are compatible with the beds in each of the Moduluxe series. Each of the nightstand types are classified as “integrated nightstands” because they must be connected to a bed and cannot stand alone. Nightstands are available with one drawer or with a shelf, and available in two width sizes: 18″w or 24″w.
Moduluxe Case Goods
Within each series, you will find a large variety of wood chests and dressers that will fit any storage needs. A unique thing about the Moduluxe Collection is that it has corner cabinets and chests, which allow you to wrap your furniture around your bedroom, saving space. The corner bedroom pieces are intended to be configured with other dressers and chests within the series for a semi-built in feel. The rest of the chests and dressers can also be configured with other pieces in the collection; however, they also look stylish standing alone.
I spent most of today working with a “high functioning team”of professionals at Vermont Woods Studios. We were focused on getting Copeland’s new Moduluxe Bedroom Furniture ready for launch but it turns out we also had a lot of fun. Dennis, Heather B, Loryn, Trenton, Tristan and I crammed ourselves into a small office and hunkered down to crank out the work. I am amazed at how much we got done. We still have a few odds and ends to tie up, but we should be able to publish the new Moduluxe pieces by Friday at the latest.
Contemporary Modular, Sectional Bedroom Furniture
Copeland unveiled Moduluxe at the annual Fall Furniture Market in High Point, North Carolina last month and it immediately hit the best seller list. I daresay it has already spawned several knock-offs, one of which is coming out under a Brad Pitt label, believe it or not. The Moduluxe idea is to provide sectional, modular wood furniture for a built in look. There are 33 mix and match pieces to choose from. Integrated nightstands are adjoined to the bed headboards and various size chests and dressers latch onto the other side of the nightstands. Pieces can be configured in many customizable designs to best fit your space. Corner pieces even allow your design to wrap around the room! Modern style is the ticket with clean, contemporary lines and tons of storage space. There’s even an optional platform storage bed. A place for everything. About the only thing there’s no room for is an excuse not to have a tidy bedroom.
Check back later this week for more details on this Vermont made, solid wood bedroom set.
And thanks to everyone on our team for doing such a great job getting Moduluxe off the ground today!
Copeland furniture is one of Vermont’s most recognizable home furniture brands. For over 30 years, Tim Copeland and his family have been building a reputation for world class, high end furniture in a variety of crisp, clean designs. Shaker style defined Copeland’s early furniture but over the years many additional styles have evolved. The Monterey collection (shown above) blends Asian design with elements of traditional American Arts and Crafts. More recent collections like the Astrid, Catalina and SoHo collections reflect American mid-century modern designs.
How to Get the Best Prices
If you’re looking to purchase Copeland furniture, like most shoppers you’re probably looking for the best price. And you’ve noticed that all retailers are charging essentially the same price. Well, that’s no coincidence. Like many furniture companies, Copeland publishes a minimum price that retailers must abide by. This is the lowest price you’ll ever see on Copeland furniture in any retail store. It’s a fair price and commensurate with the true value of Copeland’s furniture. It’s meant to help keep Copeland’s retailers from going out of business, declaring bankruptcy and damaging the Vermont furniture industry. Thus if you’re shopping for Copeland furniture you’re not going to get less than this price unless you’re buying a floor model, a return or a scratch and ding sample.
So… first thing when shopping for Copeland furniture is to make sure you insist on getting this minimum price.
Next thing, especially if you’re shopping online is to negotiate the lowest price for white glove shipping and delivery. This is an important service as you do not want a box full of expensive, high end, HEAVY furniture being delivered to your home by UPS. Or placed on the curbside (a common practice) when you have no way to get it into the house and possibly up a flight of stairs or two.
The best way to save on white glove shipping is to purchase Copeland furniture as a set. If a retailer charges the typical $300 per item for white glove shipping and delivery, that adds up quickly. Buy the furniture as a set instead and pay a total of $450 to ship all the pieces together. Buying several pieces? You could save hundreds or even thousands.
At Vermont Woods Studios, because we are just down the road from Copeland Furniture we ship more efficiently and economically than other retailers. That savings is passed on to our customers. We are committed to offering the best prices on Copeland Furniture and even have a low price guarantee.
Top 10 Reasons to Buy Copeland Furniture at Vermont Woods Studios
Copeland Furniture will be rolling out their new products for 2013 this week at the Highpoint Furniture Market in North Carolina. Each year at the Fall Market Copeland announces which products are being changed, discontinued and added to their luxury line of Vermont made furniture. Dennis and Heather are analyzing Copeland’s changes now and we’ll highlight them over the next few weeks.
One thing I wanted to mention right away though, is that the Copeland Lily Collection is being discontinued as of December 1, 2012. I know many of you have previously purchased Lily beds, dressers, chests and nightstands for your bedroom and if you’re looking to complete your set, now is the time to make your move.
We hate to see Lily go as this natural maple, transitional Shaker style furniture has been a favorite among our customers. But there is an upside for you. Typically when fine furniture collections like this are discontinued, their value is increased as they become more rare and unique over time. Your Vermont made bedroom set may one day be a collector’s item and you can hand it down through your family for generations.
