We are excited to roll out our new and improved website! We’ve upgraded the design to be cleaner, easier to read, and more user friendly overall. The days of our minty green background are far behind us, and we are happy to give our customers the best possible experience with our website.

One of the biggest improvements is the look of our category pages. Header images are larger, giving you a better look at the quality and style of our pieces, and product images are larger too–creating a better shopping experience overall.

These changes are only the beginning of an ongoing project to tell our story and give you the most honest view at our company, our values, and our brand! Keep your eyes on the blog as we reveal more website transformations and upgrades! Until then, browse through our new website template and let us know what you think of it in the comments section!  If you are interested, you can see what it used to look like here.

Tristan’s been learning the Vermont Woods Studios ropes from his dad since he was barely a teenager. I took this snapshot a couple years ago when we were renting a tiny office space from Teddy George at George’s Mill in Vernon.

This isn’t the first time I’ve had the pleasure of welcoming Tristan Fletcher into our family of hardworking fine furniture specialists at Vermont Woods Studios.  Tristan’s been helping us since back in the day when we were working out of the guest bedroom in my house.  He was barely a teenager when we started recruiting him to help with data entry and photo-shopping.  Over the years he’s added additional skills like computer networking and troubleshooting to his repertoire.  Not to mention lawn-mowing, wood cutting/stacking and showroom cleaning.

Come to think of it, Tristan’s probably a serious competitor to Ken and Loryn when it comes to winning the VWS “jack of all trades” award.

Here's Tristan and fellow "groundskeepers" at Stonehurst last summer.  The foursome (from left, Teagen Fletcher, Riley Farabaugh, Trenton Fletcher and Tristan)
Here’s Tristan and fellow “grounds keepers” at Stonehurst last summer. The foursome (from left, Taegen Fletcher, Riley Farabaugh, Trenton Fletcher and Tristan) managed to keep smiling (mostly) throughout  the process of cutting and stacking 40 cords of wood.

When I asked Tristan how he acquired his expertise with computers he said he got interested by playing online video games. “While at my friend’s house I saw his custom computer and at that moment it started my interest. As a computer gamer the technology is never enough so I tinker and get as much performance as I can. New leading edge things come out which make the computer work better/faster and instantly I need to have them.

I’ve been customizing computers for about 3 years.  There’s nothing like having all the separate parts and spending a day building and putting a computer together to experience the final product and being able to say “I made that”.

Everyone’s excited about having Tristan on board full time now at Stonehurst. We’ve stationed him in the Brainiac Room with Neville and Martin where he’ll be helping them turn our dreams into reality.  It’s great to have you on board full time, Tristan!

Vermont Fine Furniture Photography | Real Home Customer Appreciation Photos

Vermont Fine Furniture Photography: We Want Your Photos!

One of the best parts of our work at Vermont Woods Studios is seeing photos of our handmade furniture after it’s been installed in a customer’s home.  I’m happy to say that we’ve put Vermont’s handmade furniture into homes in every state in America (including Alaska and Hawaii) as well as a handful of other countries.  But the drawback to serving such a wide-spread customer base is that we rarely get to install the furniture ourselves and see how it looks!  That makes our customer testimonials and reviews all the more important.

Some of us like to say that our customers are  the best interior designers, because of the warm and unique looks that are created when they arrange our furniture in their homes. From sunny mountaintop porches to cozy New England living spaces, there is no shortage of places and ways to arrange our beautiful wood furniture.

We frequently feature fine furniture photography from our wonderful customers on Facebook and on Pinterest, and we’d love to have a photo of yours! If you have a piece of Vermont Woods Studios furniture in your home, we’d love for you to send us a snapshot of your new furniture arranged just as you live with it. Submit your fine furniture photography to info@vermontwoodsstudios.com

To get inspiration and see other examples of Vermont fine furniture photography, visit our Pinterest board!

American Shaker Panel Bed

Admiring the American Shaker Panel Bed

We’d like to extend our appreciation to Linda T., for sending us this lovely appreciation photo. The photo shows her new American Shaker Panel Bed in Natural Cherry. It’s a classic bed for the contemporary bedroom, as it is elegant, simple, and very pretty. This handcrafted bed features sleek panels in the headboard and footboard that add a modern feel to this traditionally inspired Shaker bed. It also showcases gentle arches and simple tapered legs, a hallmark of Shaker furniture.

The American Shaker Panel Bed is handmade in Vermont using sustainably harvested wood. Each piece is custom crafted, made just for you. Beds ordered with the optional under-bed storage unit will include a vanity footboard that extends close to the floor to conceal the storage unit!

Do you have a photo of Vermont Woods Studios furniture in your home? We’d love to see it! Send your customer appreciation photos to info@vermontwoodsstudios.com and we will feature it on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Google+!
