For more than 40 years, Lee Industries has built high quality furniture while respecting its employees, customers and the environment.
Bill and Dottie Coley founded Lee Industries in Newton, North Carolina, in 1969, determined to make the kind of furniture they'd want in their own home. Bill's training as an architect combined with Dottie's keen eye for colors and pattern made them a formidable team. The company is still run with the same values: it's a commitment to treating employees, partners, community and the environment with respect. In fact, every company that works with Lee must adhere to a Code of Conduct to ensure those values are present every step of the way.
The craftspeople at Lee take great pride in producing American-made furniture, drawing on years of hands-on experience. In fact, the average tenure for a Lee associate is over 15 years. They care for each other, the products they make and the community, and it all goes into the products that are in our customers' homes.
Lee is a founding member of the Sustainable Furnishings Council (SFC) and Silver Exemplary Member of the SFC. The company holds Forestry Stewardship Council and Sustainable Forestry Initiative certificates. For Lee, sustainability means looking at the entire business—from workflow processes to wood types—to find ways to be even more eco-friendly. Monitoring water consumption, using soy-based cushions and establishing a "green team" in every plant are just a few examples of Lee's commitment to environmental responsibility.See all Lee Industries products
