Our POLYWOOD Nautical Bench: Furniture, Stage Prop, or Newest Member of the Addams Family?

The versatility of our POLYWOOD furniture was shown in a recent local theater production. Our Nautical park bench took a supporting role in a production of The Addams Family musical presented by Ja’Duke Productions at the Shea Theater in Turners Falls, MA. The Addams Family is a dark, humorous show that highlights the ghoulish Addams family and their ancestors (one of which was played by our very own Michelle Rooks)!

In the play, a huge house was built where the Addams family tree had been planted to protect the ancestral graves from annoyances such as sunlight and tourists. The Addams Family, including Gomez, Morticia, Fester, Grandma, Wednesday, Pugsley and Lurch (played by Michelle’s husband Chris) have gathered at the family graveyard to celebrate life and death in a yearly ritual to connect with their past. Little does the family know, daughter Wednesday has grown up and wishes to marry the very normal Lucas Beineke. The two families meet over dinner. Chaos ensues and the climax of the show has Morticia leaving her family. Gomez finds her at the train station…seated upon the POLYWOOD bench. Love triumphs and the family is reunited.

Post-production the bench now serves as outdoor seating at the Ja’Duke Center for the Performing Arts in Turners Falls.

Lyndon Furniture is Best Seller at Stonehurst
Douglas Fletcher & Dennis Shanoff of Vermont Woods Studios and Christine Drown & Brian Ball of Lyndon Furniture.  These guys work incredibly hard to promote Vermont’s sustainable furniture economy.  Today they’re taking a lunch break at Brattleboro’s favorite eatery: the Whetstone Station.

Lyndon Furniture was one of our very first partners when we started Vermont Woods Studios as an online fine furniture store.  That was nearly 9 years ago and since then we’ve created a close partnership with Brian Ball, Dave Allard, Christine Drown and the whole Lyndon Furniture crew.

Truth is, I started Vermont Woods Studios out of a passion for forest and wildlife conservation.  I really didn’t know anything about furniture.  But Dave Allard, who owned Lyndon Furniture at the time, took us under his wing.  He too, had grown up loving Vermont’s woodlands and like me, he chose a line of work built around forest conservation.

Lyndon’s sustainable, handcrafted wood furniture fills a special niche in our new fine furniture gallery at Stonehurst.  Lyndon’s bedroom, dining, living room and home office furniture is known for it’s simple elegance and classic American shaker style.  It pairs beautifully with other elements of Vermont home decor including Simon Pearce glassware, Hubbardton Forge lighting and JK Adams wooden tableware.

Today we celebrated our strong partnership with Lyndon Furniture over a handcrafted harvest table full of locally grown food at Brattleboro’s Whetstone Station.  We are looking forward to the next 9 years of collaboration and success with our friends from Lyndon, Vermont!
