I had the opportunity last week to journey up to Bradford, Vermont to attend Copeland Camp, a 2-day jam-packed instructional camp, hosted by Copeland Furniture Company. Copeland has been creating sustainably harvested hardwood furniture since the 70’s, and we’ve been working with them for nearly 4 decades. On deciding to work with Copeland, Peggy describes, "One of the most important things for me is the care they give to the environment and their desire to protect it for future generations.

Harvard Square might be the first thing that comes to mind when you think about Cambridge, but there's so much more to the city. Sitting opposite Boston on the Charles River, Cambridge is a university community and a hub of innovation. We have roots in Cambridge going back over 60 years. In fact, Circle Furniture takes its name from the location of the original store, in Putnam Circle (now Putnam Square) in Cambridge, MA. We still have a beautiful showroom in Cambridge right in Fresh Pond. Over the years we've discovered so many reasons to love Cambridge and we want to share them with you.

Local Manufacturing: Why it’s so Important to Us

Local Manufacturing: Why it’s so Important to Us

Circle Furniture News, Community and Boston, Eco Friendly, General, Green Design, Things To know
Circle Furniture has always been proud to support and work with local furniture manufacturers. The majority of our product line is made in America, and a large portion is made locally in New England. Our core objective is to provide our customers with the highest quality furniture, and we believe sourcing local materials and working with small local companies is an imperative part of that. We’ve come to learn that there is no reason to outsource wood. Some of the best and highest quality woods are grown right in our backyard, in New England. We’re also passionate about supporting the local economy. We live and work in the same neighborhoods you do. As members of the community, we hope to better our neighborhoods in every way we can.
