    Wright Makes Right: Copeland Furniture Recreates Frank Lloyd Wright's Iconic Designs

    Copeland Furniture

     

    Since snagging the imprimatur of the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation, Copeland­ Furniture's factory has been humming with reproductions from the architect's Prairie period. Then the manufacturer moved on to his own Wisconsin residence, Taliesin, with a single design, an ottoman that doubles as storage when you remove the cushion. Next, seizing on the popularity of all things mid-century, come pieces from his Usonian­ houses, designed from 1937 until his death in 1959.


    The Usonian Occasionals collection replicates smaller pieces from a single 1948 house in South Bend, Indiana. A cocktail table, rectangular, and a side table­, more or less square, share Wright's right angles and mortise-and-tenon con­struction. There's also a storage ottoman with a cavity deeper than the Taliesin version but similarly concealed by a cushion upholstered in a variety of Copeland fabrics or COM. Wood is Forest Stewardship Council-certified cherry, offered­ in six finishes and engraved with his signature and a serial number. Because his vision of Usonia hinged on affordability, pricing is particu­larly palatable­. 802-222-9282; copelandfurniture­.com.
