Elemental Living was founded by Jonathan Coppin and Scott Dergance, two architects who decided to create a company that spoke to the heart of what was important to them: modern design, environmental consciousness, and quality craftsmanship. Jonathan graduated from the University of Colorado at Denver. Scott graduated from the University of Illinois at Chicago, then received a Master's degree in Architecture from Columbia University. Their two decades of combined experience left them with a deep desire to make great design not only accessible, but also responsible - thus Elemental Living's formation.
Elemental Living manufactures modern green home furnishings that are designed using honest forms and materials to help create clarity in your home. Materials are selected based on a balance of aesthetics, sustainable value, and durability so that each piece of furniture has a distinct identity and strength borne from the materials themselves. Design and quality work together to create an intrinsic lasting value in every chair, table, sofa, or bookshelf. Elemental Living creates home furnishings that have a value beyond their price because they aren't just functional and attractive; they are essential elements to modern life.
All Elemental Living furniture is made sustainable through the use of materials, quality, and domestic manufacturing. Their furniture is built using domestic hardwoods, environmentally conscious textiles, and metals that are recycled and recyclable.
