About Peggy Farabaugh

Peggy Farabaugh
She is a CEO who brakes for salamanders, has bottle-fed rescued squirrels and spent her vacation building furniture for a rural school in Costa Rica. She believes in the future and in the people who will build it. A former distance-learning professor at Tulane University with a master’s in environmental health & safety, she turned an interest in forest conservation and endangered species into a growing, local business. She delivers rainforest statistics at breakneck speed, but knows how to slow down and appreciate the beauty of a newly finished piece of heirloom furniture.

Wwf_valentines_gift Is your Sweetheart a wild one?  The World Wildlife Fund is our very favorite charity here at Vermont Woods Studios, not only because they have been working for over 45 years to preserve nature and wildlife but also because they work in a way that is designed to involve and respect indigenous people who share habitat with endangered wildlife.  This year, for Valentines Day, WWF is promoting Wild Animal Adoptions.  For $50 you can select an endangered animal to adopt and  your beloved will receive an adorable plush likeness of it sent in a festive, red Happy Valentine’s Day bag.  “Like to monkey around?  Adopt a monkey!”  Or a polar bear, tiger, panda, snow leopard, chimp, sea turtle and the list of endangered species goes on.  Do it today for a better tomorrow!

Red_upholstered_heart_shaped_chairs Diamonds, rubies, furs, bonbons…if none of these will be quite creative enough to make the splash you need on Valentines Day, how about our fine furniture adorable handmade, heart-shaped chairs?  Deirdre Woolard of the Luxist writes, "The thing about these Valentine chairs that makes them amazing is all the little details like the way the heart on the chairback is broken so that is slightly curves in to support your back and the darling little red shoes on the end of the chair legs. The chairs are made of sturdy maple with soft velvety red upholstery. The chair sells for $3950 but is as much of an heirloom as any piece of jewelry."  Purchase online, email us or call for more information (888-390-5571).  Happy Valentine's Day!

Fainting_couch_vermont_woods_studio Thanks to Laura Whiston of Page7Media in Dublin Ireland, Vermont Woods Studios will be represented in the next issue of Ireland's premier interiors and lifestyle publication, City and Town Magazine.  Laura found us on-line and loved our furniture and our environmental mission.  Coincidently, she contacted me just a few hours after I had finished booking a trip to Ireland for my family.  (Such a journey has been a lifelong dream for my mother and me…O'Neils as it were)  We are grateful to Laura for including us in this prestigious venue and we look forward to picking up a couple copies of the issue while in downtown Dublin.  Readers of City and Town Magazine can purchase our products online or over the phone at 888-390-5571.

Thanks, Laura!
