All Of Our Handpicked Bedroom Sets Are Now 25% Off

The other day as I was driving home, I decided to listen to the regular old FM radio instead of my usual selection of Pandora, Spotify and NPR Podcasts. Something I noticed after a little while was how often I was hearing furniture store commercials. And it wasn’t just the usual big box stores I was hearing the ads from–they were coming from locally owned stores, too. I heard everything from win tickets to see the Red Sox to visit our new IMAX screen. I wondered to myself, what are they actually selling?

I then started to think about all of the furniture ads I see on TV–they seem endless and they, too love to offer prizes, giveaways and bundles at “unbeatable” prices . It may be because I now work for a high-end wood furniture company that I notice these things more, but I don’t think I’m alone.

That’s why we like to keep things simple here. We have sales certainly, but we want you to know first and foremost that you’re getting the best Vermont made wood furniture value possible and that it’s coming from a knowledgeable team of wood furniture fanatics. We also want to make the shopping process as easy for you as possible.

So, how did we achieve this? We asked our team to handpick suites of bedroom furniture and turn them into “easy to shop” sets. These bedroom sets are offered at a 25% discount, ships free and you decide what’s in them! Each set starts with four pieces, a bed, two nightstands and either a dresser or chest (you choose the size) plus you can add more perfectly matching pieces. Make your own set that’s perfect for your space!

If you’re wondering when these great savings end, no need to worry, they won’t. The 25% off discount is our new standard with our bedroom sets.

Shop with ease online knowing our knowledgeable team has hand selected each piece of furniture in each set. If you have any questions about the new discount or any of our furniture, you can call our Showroom at (888) 390-5571 and speak with one of our helpful sales team members.

*Discount cannot be combined with other sales and promos

*Excludes POLYWOOD and Copeland

*FREE SHIPPING

*Discount only applicable to furniture within each preselected bedroom set

Mad Men may be over, but mid century modern furniture is still widely popular.

From fashion to furniture and everything in-between there’s no denying the influence AMC’s hit show Mad Men had on the American people. Whether you liked or loathed Don Draper, rooted for Peggy Olson or had a love/hate relationship with Pete Campbell I bet the show either brought you back to those times or suddenly had you wishing everyone still dressed that way.

While I certainly wouldn’t want culture to go back to the 1960s, I’ve found that I do have an affinity for mid century modern inspired furniture and design. What exactly is mid century modern you ask? According to a Curbed feature story, mid century modern describes architecture, furniture and graphic design from the middle of the 20th century (arguably the time between 1947-1957).

When I first started going through our bedroom collections, I was instantly drawn to our Copeland Catalina Modern Bedroom Furniture. With mid century influence and walnut wood, I felt like the Catalina Platform Bed was calling my name. It has clean and sleek lines, a low profile and minimalist style. Perfect for someone looking for something both contemporary and “mod”.

I would complement the bed with a Catalina Nightstand, 6 Drawer Dresser, 3 Drawer Chest & TV Organizer and two of Copeland’s Walnut Framed Wall Mirrors to hang over the Dresser.

Not a fan of dark wood? Not to worry. The Catalina Collection comes in Cherry wood and both wood types offer two nightstand designs, and seven different style chests and dressers.

Are you craving some Mad Men now? Envisioning the opening credits and playing back all the Don Draper drama from Betty to Megan?

While I can’t help you with that (Netflix can though!), I can help with the furniture. The Copeland Catalina Collection also has a line of dining and office furniture. Really immerse yourself in the Mad Men era from the comfort of your new bed!

If you have any questions about this collection or any other pieces, our friendly and knowledgeable sales team is only a phone call away at (888) 390-5571. You can shop conveniently and securely from the comfort of your home or stop on into our Vernon, Vermont Showroom.

Dining Chairs

Learn Why Dining Chairs Are the Most Important Thing You’ll Buy For Your Dining Room

Have you ever been stuck in a meeting or at a dinner and suddenly felt a twinge of pain in your back? Did you discreetly try to rub it out, but it suddenly felt worse. You maybe cracked your back by carefully twisting side to side and felt a moment’s alleviation only to have the pain come back shortly thereafter. You probably then tried to sit up straight and fix your posture but that didn’t help much because the pain was already set in.

As someone who’s grown up with back problems, I’ve tried almost every trick in the book. Chiropractor visits, physical therapy, core strengthening, memory foam mattress pads…the list goes on and on. And I’m not alone.

According to the American Chiropractic Association, 31 million Americans experience lower back pain at any given time. Most cases of back pain are mechanical or non-organic in nature–meaning they are not caused by serious conditions. The causes of back pain can vary from poor diet and exercise to posture.

One thing that will set off a nerve (literally!) in my back is sitting too long. I know that’s true for a lot of people, but I also find the type of chair I’m sitting in can either help or worsen the pain in my back.

When it comes to dining chairs, I like a chair with a back that’s not too tall but also offers support and room to move. While looking for chairs that are ergonomic, I still consider the style of the chair to be just as important.

I’ve gone through our collection of high-end dining chairs and have chosen three that each offer something different, while still providing comfort to the person sitting in them.

Modern High Back Cherry Dining Chairs: With a seat back shape ergonomically like the shape of our backs, this chair offers lower back support and room for movement. This chair available as either an arm or side chair comes in cherry wood with a variety of Finish options. For added comfort you can have an upholstered seat or a flat wooden seat. This contemporary chair will instantly update a room’s appearance.

Estelle Cherry Chair: Modern minimalist is a term that comes to mind with our Copeland Estelle Cherry Chair. Its seat back (reaching just 34” at its tallest point) is slender and simple, making it stand out against the rest of our collections. The chair is available in cherry (or walnut with the Estelle Walnut Chair) with a variety of Finish options. It’s designed as a side chair and is available with a flat wooden seat.

Country Windsor Chair: Comfortable and classic these Windsor dining chairs offer you back support while maintaining a design sure to never fade out of style. Available in cherry wood with a variety of Finish options you can select either side or arm chair versions of this chair. It’s curved back allows you to sit back comfortably and it’s scooped wooden seat adds comfort while you’re sitting.

Aside from finding yourself in one of our comfortable handmade dining chairs, the American Chiropractic Association recommends some easy fixes and preventable steps for back pain.

Stretch during the day

Use proper posture

Invest in a good mattress (that’s my recommendation!)

Wear comfortable/supportive shoes

If you’re like me, comfortable shoes definitely comes second to shoe style, but it doesn’t have to be that way for your dining chairs or your furniture in general!

If you have any questions about the chairs listed or others in our collection, don’t hesitate to leave a comment or call our friendly team toll free at 888-390-5571. If you’re in the area or planning on driving through Vermont, you can always stop into our Vernon, VT Showroom. We’re open seven days a week.
