Carolina furniture Elide cafe seating in senior living community environments

Carolina to serve as Presenting Sponsor of Environments for Aging Conference 2022

The future of senior living begins with design intentionality and thoughtful product applications.

Carolina, an OFS company, will serve as presenting sponsor of this year’s Environments for Aging Conference (EFA). Embracing intentionality in senior living design on the showroom floor, Carolina will utilize its extensive product portfolio, including several new product launches, to showcase spaces that support healing, restoration, inspiration, and connection.

Intentional design and thoughtful furniture choices guide our decision-making when we look at creating welcoming spaces, and this is especially true for senior living. At EFA, we’re proud to simulate how senior living communities can care for those who got us to where we are today.
- Stan Gray, senior vice president of healthcare + hospitality at OFS.
