Frank Lloyd Wright
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.
On the upside, because of the limited nature of the pieces they are sure to gain value over time as they become collectors items. The Dana Thomas Grand Dining Collection, FLW Barrel chairs, the Boynton chairs, the Usonian Collection, the Heurtley House chairs and all of the Copeland Frank Lloyd Wright furniture pieces would certainly be a good investment at this time.
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.
Frank Lloyd Wright® American Made Furniture by Copeland is made of solid hardwood and can be customized in several stains on either quartersawn white oak or American black cherry wood. Each reproduction piece is licensed by the Frank Lloyd Wright® Foundation and is engraved with Wright's signature and a discreet serial number. It is some of the finest, handmade, collectible luxury furniture you will find. Check out Wright's Usonian furniture collection and Copeland's reproduction pieces from the Dana Thomas, Boynton, Coonley and Heurtley homes.

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.
