Since we’ve made the transition over to Stonehurst, our new headquarters and showroom, we’ve had some of the most wonderful experiences with our customers. It’s been a pleasure for us to meet our guests in person and help them have a comfortable and easy Vermont furniture shopping experience. From helping our guests choose Vermont made decor and artwork for their homes, to assisting in the creation of the perfect custom furniture, or simply giving guidance for furniture upkeep; we love that our guests are excited about their shopping experience with us.

Astrid Modern Bedroom Furniture Collection
The ultra modern Astrid Bedroom Furniture Collection brings a dramatic yet relaxed zen style to your space. 

Jeannie and Jeff S., are two of our customers who made a trip out to Stonehurst to see our furniture up close before they made any decisions. Pleased with our showroom and the quality of our designs, they decided to purchase a bedroom set and new dining room furniture. The photos included in this blog were sent in by them, along with this lovely note:

“We had a wonderful experience at Vermont Wood Studios starting with our thoughtful and extensive meeting with Sean at your lovely Brattleboro showroom. Sean gave excellent advice to customize our order and kept in touch while the craftspeople made our bedroom and dining room furniture. It was delivered earlier than expected by the very capable ALB Transport in perfect condition. We are absolutely thrilled by the beauty and uniqueness of the bed, dressers, dining room table and chairs. We are happy to recommend both the furniture and customer oriented values of Vermont Wood Studios! 
With much appreciation,
Jeannie and Jeff S.”

We really appreciate this positive feedback, and are proud to showcase Vermont wood furniture in such a grand location (& with such a great staff!). Our team is here at Stonehurst Monday-Saturday 9-5, and we’d love for you to visit to see for yourself! Visiting Stonehurst before you shop online makes the buying experience that much more comfortable, as you’ll see first hand the luxurious quality of our handcrafted furniture designs in a natural Vermont home setting.

Vermont Artisans Designs | Brattleboro Shop and Gallery | High Quality Arts and Crafts
Greg Worden of Vermont Artisans Designs visits with Douglas in our new fine furniture gallery at Stonehurst.  We’re working together to offer customers great value and a fun Vermont experience when they come up to shop for furniture, art and home decor.

Yesterday we were excited to welcome Greg Worden of Vermont Artisans Designs to meet with us at Stonehurst.  Greg’s art gallery on Main Street in downtown Brattleboro is one of Vermont’s best loved places to shop for high quality, handmade arts and crafts.

Currently Greg is featuring “Of Land & Local” an exhibit focusing on local and regional artists including Charlie Hunter, Deborah Lazar, Paul Stone, David Rohn, Jon Olsen, Steven Hileman and Alistair McCallum. These are well acclaimed artists and customers visiting from New York, Boston and beyond have come to know that regional art and specifically, Vermont art is offered here at great value.

Vermont's Best Loved Art Gallery in Brattleboro

At Vermont Woods Studios, we’re collaborating with Greg and other Brattleboro art galleries to help our customers (who travel considerable distances to Vermont to purchase high quality home decor) make the most of their trip.  Those who visit Stonehurst are always delighted to learn they can acquire world-class original artwork just a few miles down the road at Vermont Artisans Designs.

Stay tuned to learn about other world class art galleries found in the one and only Brattleboro.

Stonehurst | Fine Furniture and Art Gallery | Vernon VT | Ribbon Cutting
These are the hard-working people who made Stonehurst possible.  From left:  Loryn Dion, Michelle Rooks, Neville Kerr, me with the scissors, Dennis Shanoff, Ken Farabaugh, Sean Henry and Douglas Fletcher  (Liz Francese, Martin Corbin and Kelsey Eaton were also instrumental but were unable to make the ceremony).  Our thanks also go out to the Vermont Working Lands Initiative for a grant that helped make Stonehurst renovations possible.

Sorry, I know I’m remiss.  It’s been over a week since we officially opened our Stonehurst Fine Furniture Showroom and Art Gallery and you all have been very forgiving about my lapse in coming forward with a record of the event.  Well, finally I’ve recruited Kelsey to help me round up some photos to happily share with you here.  The ribbon cutting ceremony was by all accounts a success.  Granted we never did persuade the governor to attend (I guess he does have other pressing matters) but we did have several VIPs (in our opinion) stop by including family, friends, neighbors, customers, furniture makers, artisans and other well wishers.  Nina Markiw was kind enough to capture much of the activity in the images below so I’ll let them speak for themselves.

We want to thank everyone who participated, especially the good people at the Vermont Working Lands Initiative and our staff who worked so hard to pull the event off.  It was not an easy feat but everything seemed to run like clockwork– even the early November weather.  Let’s hope it’s a sign for the future of Stonehurst.  Thanks Everyone!

Stonehurst Fine Furniture Gallery | Brattleboro Reformer Article

We’re grateful to Mike Faher (journalist), Kayla Rice (photographer) and the editors of the local paper, The Brattleboro Reformer for today’s article on our Stonehurst gallery, Vermont’s newest fine furniture showroom.  Mike and Kayla visited us at Stonehurst yesterday and followed up on a couple previous articles Mike had written about Vermont Woods Studios.

Today’s article focuses on the fact that besides being a fine furniture showroom and art gallery, Stonehurst is a mini Vermont welcome center, providing tourist information about the Brattleboro area and the rest of the state of Vermont.  Check out Mike’s article on Reformer.com and stop by our open house and ribbon cutting ceremony tomorrow.  We’ll make it worth the trip!

A Visit from Jim Westphalen and Vermont Life Magazine
Last week professional photographer, Jim Westphalen spent a day at Stonehurst on behalf of Vermont Life Magazine.  Our fine furniture and home decor showcase will be featured in the magazine’s Fall 2014 issue.

I received a call from Jim Westphalen last Wednesday, explaining that he’d been tasked by Vermont Life Magazine to photograph Stonehurst.  Woohoo!  Vermont Life is the premier advocator of our state’s culture and creative economy.  It’s considered one of America’s premier regional magazines featuring “the best writing, illustration, art and photography Vermont has to offer”.

So this is pretty terrific news for us!  Back in June we attended a Pitch Party sponsored by Vermont Life and Luke Stafford at Mondo Media Works in downtown Brattleboro.  Such a cool idea:  Editor Mary Hegarty Nowlan and her staff were traveling around Vermont inviting people to pitch their artwork, businesses, personal stories and such– for future articles.  So we pitched our Stonehurst Fine Furniture and Art Gallery story and apparently they liked it.

Vermont Life Magazine to Feature Stonehurst Fine Furniture and Art Gallery
A subscription to Vermont Life Magazine would make a thoughtful Christmas present!  You can also buy beautiful Vermont Life calendars, and posters on their website.

We’re grateful to Jim Westphalen and Mary Hegarty Nowlan for their support of our green mission at Stonehurst.   We’re honored that they feel it fits into Vermont Life’s mission which “celebrates the unique heritage, countryside, traditions and people of Vermont and explores issues of contemporary interest to Vermonters and visitors to the state.”

Can’t wait till the article comes out next Fall!
