Smaller furniture makers like Dan Mosheim and Steve Holman are equally impressed with Farabaugh and her company.

They appreciate that Vermont Woods Studios has helped them with outreach. Most have their own websites but don’t have the time or resources to keep their names at the forefront of Internet searches. As Steve Holman points out, “Living in Vermont, almost all my market is elsewhere. Reaching that market has been an issue.” Holman is grateful to Farabaugh for her marketing efforts.

Chad Woodruff likes the two-way relationship he has with Vermont Woods Studios. He can ask Farabaugh to sell some of his furniture or she can ask him for a custom piece. The craftsmen are also happy that Vermont Woods Studios offers their furniture without any upfront cost.

“Peggy doesn’t charge me anything unless she sells something so, what the hey, I’ll let her have at it,” commented Dan Mosheim.

Holman is especially impressed with Stonehurst, which he first visited last fall when it opened. On a steep hill in Vernon, with a view of the Connecticut River, the 100-acre property has served many purposes, including as a ski area called Pinetop in the mid-20th century. Now, in the renovated barn, cherry and oak dining sets, maple side tables with walnut inlaid leaves, Shaker-style beds, walnut desks, and landscape paintings by local artists decorate three airy, bright rooms. Vermont Woods Studios staffers work in the attached restored farmhouse — on computer tables made by Ken Farabaugh. The property was restored in part with a Vermont Working Lands Initiative, which helped pay for the bluestone walkway, among other features.

Outside, customers can sit overlooking the hillside field/old ski slope with iPad (for shopping) in one hand, picnic lunch in the other. Or they can hike a forest trail that Farabaugh wants to turn into an interpretative walk about the Vermont woods. Inside, customers can touch the tables, sit in the chairs, measure the entertainment consoles, debate over style, and covet every piece of furniture on display.

“They made an effort to make it a destination, not just a place to sell furniture,” said Holman.

That statement perhaps best sums up the company’s real mission: that purchasing from Vermont Woods Studios is as much about experiencing Vermont and its culture of neighbor helping neighbor as it is about acquiring new furniture.

Right Dining Table Shape
Our Sarah Trestle Dining Table is a great choice for a rectangle dining table shape!

Selecting the Right Dining Table Shape for your Home Décor

With the holidays around the corner (can you believe it?) I figured what better time to talk about dining tables! We have all of these shapes and sizes, but how does that apply to your dining space? What will look best in your room and will you be able to accommodate the right amount of guests? There’s lots to consider when considering the right dining table shapre, and I’ll admit, it can get a little confusing trying to guess what kind of table is best for your situation. Hopefully this post can help to remove some of the mystery about what you’re getting when you order one of our fine, hardwood dining tables.

Rectangular Dining Tables

Rectangle tables are the most common dining table shape since they are ideal for accommodating large numbers of people for dinner parties and fit best in most dining rooms. Whether choosing a solid top or extension rectangle table, you’re sure to always have space for that extra guest. My favorite rectangle dining table would be the Sarah Shaker Trestle table. I love the curved leg work and simple shaker style, plus the added benefit of it being an extension table.

 

 

 

Walnut Hardwood

Square Dining Tables

Square tables create a more intimate dining experience. Perfect for small dining rooms or eat-in kitchens, a square table allows you room to entertain small dinners and conserve much needed space. My pick for a square table is our Catalina 40×40 Solid Top Dining Table. It’s elegant, simple and looks great in walnut wood. What more do you need?

 

 

 

Solid Cherry Wood

Round Dining Tables

Round tables are also great for small spaces or modest dining rooms. Round tables are my favorite option for entertaining guests. A round table allows everyone to sit comfortably and also maintain eye contact with other guests. I would pick our Vermont-made Shaker Custom Round Table. It has an extension option, it is simple and durable and comes discounted in our Vermont Shaker Cherry Round Dining Set!

 

 

 

Oval Dining Tables

An oval table incorporates the best parts of a rectangle and round table. You can still accommodate large groups, like that of a rectangle table, while saving space with the rounded corners. An oval table can also be created by opting for a round extension table, which gives you the most versatility. I choose the Cherry Blossom Double Pedestal table. It can be dressed up or dressed down, but no matter what, it always looks classy and is sure to be a conversation piece.

One factor that all of our table shapes have in common is that they are completely green and made from sustainably harvested hardwoods. No matter what dining table shape you choose, you want it to last a lifetime and here at Vermont Woods Studios, we promise just that.

So there you have it! Our four traditional dining shapes, broken down and analyzed so you can find the perfect one for you. In addition to these, you can also find boat shape tables, live edge slab tables and glass top tables on our site, so be sure to check out all of your options before purchasing. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to call our sales team and have someone work with you on dimensions and help you build your dream dining room with the perfect dining table shape!

Let us know in the comments what table shape works best for you and how it’s helped to bring your friends and family together.
