Grand Rapids Made

Leland International

In the early to mid 20th century, Grand Rapids, MI was the center of furniture manufacturing. Later furniture manufacturing became a major industry in North Carolina along with tobacco and textiles. Of course all that has changed.

In some respects, Grand Rapids and Western Michigan are still a major center of furniture….now commercial and office furniture….Steelcase….Herman Miller….Haworth being the most prominent.

However there are smaller companies that fill certain market segments and Leland Furniture is one of them. “Formed in 1992, Leland International began with a clear vision: Design products that look and feel contemporary, while enduring timelessly.”
