Yesterday I woke up to the honking of rowdy Canadian geese flying over our rural Vermont home. That seals the deal. Autumn’s here and it’s the start of nesting season – for me anyway. In the summer I’m outside as much as possible, but fall makes me want to come in and get cozy. How about you? Here are four of my favorite bedroom sets to snuggle into for fall. Dress them up in layers of warm-toned sheets, duvets, pillows and throws to create your ultimate autumn sanctuary.
Vermont Shaker Four Poster Bed by Maple Corner
The quintessential wooden 4 poster bed! What could be more luxurious than curling up in this iconic, handcrafted bed? It’s been the staple of traditional farmhouses and quaint country inns for centuries and there’s a reason why. You just can’t match the feeling of luxury and comfort served up by this classic Shaker bed. Doll it up with rich, cozy colored comforters, pillows and quilts, light a couple candles and settle in with a mug of warm apple cider. Ahhh.
Vermont Woods Studios fine furniture is handcrafted in Vermont using real solid wood. Each board in your furniture is selected by hand, and inspected for quality, strength, straightness, grain and color. Our furniture makers use wood that comes from North American forests that are harvested sustainably.
Our furniture makers typically work with the following four species of wood: black cherry, sugar maple, red oak and black walnut. We like these species because they are well suited to fine furniture making by virtue of their color, strength, hardness, grain patterns and workability. They are also readily obtainable in our local and regional area, making them a sustainable choice. Often our furniture makers will offer two-tone combinations of these woods creating a custom, artisan look and feel to their work.
If you are looking for a different wood species, give us a call. We will be happy to discuss options and considerations involving the use of other wood species.
