Craftsman dining furniture, American made in Vermont
This is our handmade Classic Shaker dining table, probably the most popular piece of dining furniture we sell. It’s 100% American made, right here in Vermont. You can customize it here or purchase the one we currently have in stock. It’s made of solid natural cherry wood, it measures 36″W x 30″H x 72″L and extends to 96″L.

Nina’s been on a mission to create beautiful photos of our shaker and craftsman dining furniture for all you online shoppers out there.  She’s been snapping pictures in historic buildings all over town, including our Stonehurst showroom, the Governor Hunt House, Malhana Farm, George’s Mill and even the Vernon Chapel.

Well, first we had to have that furniture crafted in studios and workshops around Vermont.  And now that Nina’s finished taking photos, what are we going to do with all these tables & chairs & china cabinets?  We don’t have a lot of extra room to store it, so we’ve put everything on sale!

What is Arts & Crafts Furniture?

Simple, graceful, and handmade: that’s the essence of the American Arts & Crafts furniture style.  The Arts & Crafts (or Craftsman) philosophy, which became popular over a century ago, grew out of a rejection of complicated Victorian era designs produced by industrial processes.  People were rediscovering an appreciation for simpler, functional, handmade wooden furniture crafted by skilled artisans.

Craftsman Style Furniture

Our customers’ favorite Vermont made Craftsman Style Furniture is the Cherry Moon Collection.   It’s contemporary Asian design has a light but grounded appearance.  Reverse-tapered legs, posts and an intricate cove under the tops round out the design to give any room a comforting and natural feeling.  Rich black walnut, half-moon drawer pulls complete the design of these natural cherry, maple, and walnut hardwood pieces.

Mission Style Furniture

Traditionally mission style furniture is characterized by rectilinear design, simple, straight construction, heavy proportion and exposed joinery.  It’s typically made with oak wood and given a medium or dark stain. Drawer pulls are often simple round brass rings or rectangular back plates of solid brass with canted corners and an oval bail handle.  But today’s Vermont made mission style furniture incorporates modern contemporary design features and is often crafted of cherry, walnut and maple wood.  You can customize it online to get whichever traditional and contemporary features you like.

Shaker Style Furniture

Vermont craftspeople have mastered the art of simple elegance in their many variations of American Shaker style furniture, ranging from a strict interpretation of the original Shaker pieces to creative versions with modern functionalities, curves and hardware.  Simple aesthetics and sturdy design remain at the heart of today’s Vermont Shaker style furniture.

Natural Cherry Wood Furniture

Natural Cherry Wood is a favorite among our customers as it develops a lustrous, rich reddish brown patina over the years.  Premium quality real cherry wood furniture is hard to find and often imitated (poorly) so don’t be fooled by the imports sporting cherry trade names.  Vermont is well established as the “go to” place to purchase real natural cherry wood furniture.

Black Walnut Furniture

American Black Walnut Wood is the only really dark North American wood. Like cherry it’s a prized, premium hardwood that carries a commensurate price tag.  Vermont woodworkers are specialists in black walnut furniture, handcrafting it from top quality solid walnut wood.

Presidents Day Furniture Sale

It’s Here: Our 2015 Presidents Day Furniture Sale!

Right now you may be preoccupied placing your Edible Arrangement order or making dinner reservations for Valentine’s Day, but some of the biggest sales events of the year are on starting today! All of the big ticket items on your wish list are on sale. Presidents Day is a retail holiday only second to Black Friday (which is 9 months away).

Traditionally, many Americans take advantage of these discounts to make larger purchases like new cars, electronics and furniture. This is the first time that retailers will offer discounts on their new lines and designs. As a consumer, one of the questions you may ask yourself before you make a big purchase is, “how long will this last?” or “how long will I have this?” For many of your purchases, like a new top of the line television with a surround sound system, the answer is probably less than 5 years. Technology is rapidly changing and these types of items become obsolete almost as soon as we buy them.

Unlike cars and electronics that have new versions come out every year, the functionality and durability of hardwood furniture has remained the same for over 200 years. We know there are a lot of items to choose from this Presidents Day, but furniture is different from your other options because it is crafted to last a lifetime- it’s guaranteed. Our online gallery features dozens of fine wood furniture collections and 100’s of pieces in a variety of timeless styles. Each piece is crafted to order, so you can customize your furniture in your choice of natural Cherry, Maple, Oak or Walnut wood. All of our furniture is 100% American made right here in Vermont.

During our Presidents Day Furniture Sale, you can save 15% storewide* plus free shipping! This is one of the deepest discounts that we can give our customers, so we only offer it a couple times a year. We are honoring this discount for 5 days only– on our bedroom, dining room, living room, and home office furniture.

If you have any questions about our Vermont made wood furniture, feel free to contact our fine furniture specialists. They are available by live chat, phone (888-390-5571), or by email (info@vermontwoodsstudios.com).

 

*This storewide sale excludes Copeland, Polywood, Barnwood, Clearance and Artisan Furniture.

Copeland Bedroom Furniture Sale Image
We’ve never done this before…but we’re excited about it! Copeland Bedroom Furniture is going on sale! 

Our President’s Day furniture sale will start this Friday and I have some good news for Copeland Furniture fans. For the first time (and possible the only time) we are able to offer a discount on Copeland bedroom furniture! The Copeland President’s Day sale starts Feb 13 and continues for over 2 weeks until March 1, 2015.

Copeland Berkeley bedroom furniture sale
Our Copeland bedroom furniture sale includes FREE shipping plus a 10% discount on this beautiful Berkeley collection (and all your other favorite bedroom pieces from this iconic Vermont furniture brand).

If you’re looking to purchase Copeland furniture, like all shoppers you’re looking for the best price, right?  You’ve noticed that all retailers are charging essentially the same price for Copeland.  What’s up with that?  Well as the Internet becomes a larger venue for shopping, more and more furniture manufacturers are setting a minimum price that we retailers must abide by.  In Copeland’s case it’s a fair price that’s commensurate with the value of their furniture.  It’s meant to help keep Copeland’s retailers from going out of business, declaring bankruptcy and damaging the Vermont furniture industry.  Thus in the past, you haven’t seen lower Copeland prices unless they were for a floor model or a scratch and ding sample.

Copeland Dominion bedroom furniture
Copeland’s Dominion bedroom furniture is also on sale with a 10% discount from Feb 13 – Mar 1, 2015.

But now, for President’s Day Copeland has announced their first ever bedroom furniture sale.  All your favorite Copeland bedroom collections will be discounted by 10%.  That’s huge because Copeland’s everyday pricing is a great value and very competitive with similar high end brands.  This sale is a true bargain!

Love mid century modern design?  This Copeland bedroom furniture sale features the Catalina collection, a beautiful expression of MCM style.
