Wrightwood Furniture, the independent Lakeview retailer, has opened its own factory in Indonesia. Based in Solo City, the factory will employ sustainable materials and plantation-grown hardwoods, and will craft furniture that reps describe as "heirloom quality at unprecedented value," with a dose of Dutch-colonial influence.
"We're always inspired by the incredible furniture we find in our travels, and love finding ways to bring these designs back at an amazing price for the customer," said co-founder Michael Cohen. The factory will produce 100 styles in 20 colors and finishes; prices will be about 50 to 75 percent less than comparable pieces at other retailers.
