If you work a full time desk job, you are sitting down for approximately 2,400 minutes a week. Now, I think that if you’re going to be sitting for that long, you might as well sit in an office chair that is chic and comfortable. The Cherry Windsor office chair features traditional continuous arm styling on a rolling metal base. It’s wheel base spokes are capped with cherry accent pieces, and like a modern office chair, this one also swivels and has both height & tilt adjustments for the perfect fit. The Windsor style chair isn’t just comfortable. It lends a high end, sophisticated look to the home office, whether it’s modern, traditional, or Shaker style.
Worried about sitting on an solid wood chair seat all day? Well, the seat is scooped out for a comfy fit but if that’s not enough cush, the Vermont Country Store has a pretty good selection of chair cushions that are sure to do the trick.
This farmhouse style Vermont Tavern Bench is part of a new line of furniture we’re making. It’s a unique signature collection, available only at Vermont Woods Studios. Traditionally crafted, this 2-tone bench features a 1 inch thick solid cherry wood seat, with a durable maple wood base painted with black lacquer.
Vermont farmhouse furniture is adapted from William and Mary style furniture that was popular in England around 1700 after the reign of King William and Queen Mary. These pieces are reproductions of the classic English tavern table and bench you’ll see in inns throughout the UK and New England (a few of Southern Vermont’s favorites are the Grafton Inn, Ye Olde Tavern, The Hermitage Inn).
Besides being a durable, heirloom piece– the Vermont Tavern Bench is sleek and stylish. The contrast between the traditional Cherry wood and the deep black lacquer base creates a truly unique piece that would make a great furniture addition for anyone looking to add a little flair to their dining area. Stop by our fine furniture showroom at Stonehurst and check it out!
If you’re anything like me, there’s nothing better than a nice glass of wine after a long day at work. This is why I think our newest product addition is just wonderful. It’s a beautiful hardwood wine cabinet, the perfect fine furniture piece for the wine enthusiast. Not only does it have space for you to store your favorite bottles (the ones you don’t drink within 24 hours of purchase), but it also has room for your most precious glasses. The cabinet can hold 16 wine bottles, and 12-16 glasses– but if you don’t need room for glasses, the top shelf is adjustable and can easily be made to hold even more bottles of wine! This piece comes in Cherry, Maple, and Walnut (additional cost for walnut).
For the second year in a row, Vermont Woods Studios will be supporting Middlebury College’s Solar Decathlon team with a donation. This year, the donation is a new cherry table. The solar decathlon is run by the US Department of Energy, and it challenges 20 different teams of college students to create solar-powered houses that are cost-effective, energy-efficient, and attractive.
The Middlebury College team, from Middlebury Vermont, is passionate about many of the same things that we are– Sustainability being one of them. The Middlebury team believes that “sustainability must first be addressed by the individual and at home. Our houses – the places we inhabit – are our most influential environments. We grow up in them, retreat to them, and spend more time in them than in any other place.” For us, this really rings true. We too believe that change begins in the home, and that it is important to be mindful about where the resources that we furnish and build our homes come from.
We wish the Middlebury team the best of luck in the 2013 competition! Read more about them here, or check them out on Facebook!
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. This might leave some people asking, “why?”
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. Simplicity is style, and Shaker furniture does it right. Shaker furniture is made using the traditional techniques of the past, creating simple, chic pieces that are timeless and won’t “go out of style” in the future.
