Shaker Furniture: Simplistically Beautiful, Unbelievably Practical

Shaker furniture is known for being practical and simple down to the very last detail. Originally made by followers of a religious group,  the furniture was designed entirely for its functionality and practicality. Fast forward a few hundred years and Shaker furniture has become an increasingly popular style for the home.

With how rushed, cluttered, and busy our lives can get– when we go home, we are looking for simplicity too. And simplicity doesn’t mean a lack of style… its quite the opposite.

After this long, harsh Vermont winter–the small joys of springtime, like gardening, are cherished. Nina has been outside all morning planting Cosmos for our butterfly garden. Cosmos are annuals that are known for their showy, colorful flowers. They are treasures to look at but we adore them for another reason, because they attract birds, bees, and butterflies. We are trying to create a natural landscape that is both beautiful and wildlife friendly, as our showroom sits on more than one hundred acres of woodland and meadow; Land that many species call home.

Liz, our company green thumb, wanted in on some of the planting and came down to assist Nina. While most of the time Liz is on the phone or computer chatting with our customers, there are some days where we just have to make time to get out in the radiant Vermont sunshine. Today is one of those days. Fotor0610132621

While the garden is just getting started, there is still a lot of beauty to be seen at Stonehurst. We’d love to invite you to visit our charming country showroom where the forest serves as the backdrop to some of Vermont’s finest natural wood furniture.
