HIGH POINT, NC – The American Home Furnishings Alliance (AHFA) announced that C.R. Laine, Century Furniture, Fairfield Chair, Hickory Chair, Hooker Furniture and the case goods division of La-Z-Boy all pledged to become better environmental stewards by implementing an industry-specific environmental management system developed by AHFA.

Vaughan-Bassett is also in the process of completing the program.
