Sorry to be the bearer of bad tidings but we were informed by Copeland Furniture yesterday that the following collections of their Frank Lloyd Wright furniture line are being discontinued as of June 30, 2013:
We are sorry to see these pieces go as they were a big hit with our customers. If you currently have Frank Lloyd Wright furniture and think you may want to round out your collection, now is the time to do it. Give Sean or Liz and call with any questions or to place an order.
But in addition to designing over 100 buildings and structures, Wright also designed about 1100 pieces of furniture. His focus was on designing things that were "in harmony with humanity and its environment", a philosophy he called organic architecture.
We're excited to be able to bring Wright's organic furniture to you through our partnership with fellow Vermont company, Copeland Furniture. Working with archivists at The Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation in Scottsdale, Arizona, Copeland Furniture created reproduction furniture that exemplifies Wright's design and aesthetic principles. Each piece has been named for the client and house for which Wright designed it.

Customers have been asking us for a wider selection of sustainable Vermont made furniture so we've been travelling all around our state in search of the next furniture company to feature on our website. Last week Dennis and Douglas made a trip up to Bradford, VT to meet with Joann Phelps and the Copeland Furniture crew. We've been admiring the work of this family-owned company for many years and are proud to announce we will soon be carrying their full line of Vermont made furniture including the Frank Lloyd Wright® collection.
We're working on getting their fine furniture up on our website now and plan to have everything ready by the end of this year. In the meantime, we are already taking orders so feel free to call us and discuss your (100% American Made) Copeland Furniture needs. We thank Tim and Ben Copeland for including Vermont Woods Studios in the Copeland Furniture retailer family.
