Accepting the premise that we shape our surroundings and then our surroundings shape us, the SoHo Bedroom seeks to instill the feelings of comfort and clarity. Borrowing elements from the best of traditional and contemporary design, SoHo falls into a category of its own; Modern-Classic. The SoHo Bedroom is crafted in solid walnut, or solid walnut with maple combination for a highly customizable room setting. The ‘floating cabinet’ motif of the Mid-Century-Modern design allows SoHo to subtly evoke harmony, simplicity and versatility.
American Black Walnut is a dense wood with a uniform to highly figured grain. The color ranges from light gray-brown to dark purplish-brown. Walnut is America’s own exotic wood species. It’s rick brown color comes, not from a stain but, from the wood’s natural characteristics. This is evident in the subtle golden undertones that give a sense of warmth and depth that could never be achieved with stains that blot out the entire surface of a piece. Maple is a heavy wood characterized by straight grain or clusters of curls (burls). It is highly resistant to abrasion and indentation and the natural color ranges from cream to light brown. All of Copeland's Maple is harvested within 90 miles of our factory and is Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified - a central component of our environmental initiative. Finished with a pre-catalyzed Conventional Lacquer top coat. Copeland's finish has a matte, satin look and feel which contrasts favorably with the heavy build-up and high gloss of conventional finishes.
Natural hardwoods have specific characteristics that make them warm and appealing to the eye. Swirls, knots and burls are some characteristics that contribute to the natural beauty of finely crafted hardwood furniture. Hardwoods oxiodize, or change color, from exposure to direct light. The color of the wood will deepen over time and take on a warm glow and soft patina. Natural variations in solid wood and hand-applied finishes make each piece unique. Slight grain and irregularities as well as subtle differences in stain shades are signs that the furniture has been crafted from solid wood and are considered hallmarks of quality.
Preservation and stewardship are values that run deep in Vermont. Copeland takes pride in the quality of the environment and the natural beauty that surrounds them. They also interact with the natural environment in a more intimate way than our friends in more developed areas.
The Northern Forest is among the healthiest in the world and is actually growing in terms of standing biomass. The capacity of the Northern Forest to absorb carbon dioxide is growing each year. The forests of Vermont are no exception, now covering over 85% of the landscape. The lumber Copeland uses comes from within 500 miles of their factory. Living and working in and near the regions that supply their raw materials means that far less fossil fuel is consumed and less carbon dioxide emitted through transportation.
Furthermore, a recent independent research study,* commissioned by the American Hardwood Export Council (AHEC) and conducted by a team of international experts confirms that:
Copeland Furniture was awarded Silver Exemplary Membership Status.
When Copeland makes a piece of furniture, they hope that it will be used and cherished by generations to come, so they have created a clear finish that is silky, smooth to the touch and still tough enough to stand up to the wear and tear of daily family activities.
To preserve the beauty of the finish, simply clean the surface of the furniture with a soft damp cloth and then dry it thoroughly. Care over the years to come will not require oil, polishes, or cleaners.
