Sunshine, warm weather, birds singing, more daylight, picnic lunches… what’s not to celebrate during Spring! So if you’re coming up to shop for furniture, bring your boots and build in a little extra time to enjoy Spring at Stonehurst. It’s beautiful! A couple things you can do here that you never thought of doing at a furniture store:
Take A Hike
Hike through our 100 acre woodland at Stonehurst. We located our sustainable furniture store here so you can experience the kind of responsibly-managed forest where your furniture originates.
Check Out the Flora & Fauna
Stonehurst is home to deer, foxes, bear, porcupines, flying squirrels, numerous birds and many other types of wildlife. This photo doesn’t look much like Spring, though does it? It was taken just after last week’s Nor’easter. Fortunately a lot has changed since then.
The daffodils and crocuses Nina planted last Fall are beginning to flower now, starting a parade of colors that will continue throughout Spring, Summer and Fall. Much of our gardening and landscaping is focused on bringing monarch butterflies back to Stonehurst and Vermont. Come see it!
Enjoy the Sights & Sounds of the Woods
Bring a picnic lunch and take a 20 minute hike back to the Stonehurst Brook. You’ll see and hear the roar of Springtime’s snowmelt bringing new life to all who dwell along the stream’s banks.
Meet the Team
Another sure sign of Spring is the presence of Ken’s and Dennis’ motorcycles in the parking lot at Stonehurst. The team is finding all sorts of ways to enjoy a few moments outside on these sunny Spring days. Our favorite excuse to get away from the computer is to enjoy a little fresh air on the back deck with a customer. So stop by and give us a reason to celebrate Spring!

We like to think that the experience you’ll have at Vermont Woods Studios is unlike that of any furniture store you’ll shop at. There are some obvious ways we’re different, of course. For one, we’re located at an old ski-resort and farmhouse in the foothills of the Green Mountains. And being in an old farmhouse comes with its quirks–one of which is space. With the average furniture store spanning 20,000 square feet, according to a Furniture Today article (2010), our showroom space is approximately 1,500-2,000 square feet.
There’s something exciting about treating yourself. Whether it’s finally a new car, or even just a scoop of ice cream at the end of the day. And, the same goes for new furniture especially during our 2016 Columbus Day Sale.
What This New Englander Has Learned about Our National Parks and Nature.
Growing up in a small, rural, New Hampshire town, I was born loving the outdoors. Being raised in a log cabin situated in the middle of a forest gives you a unique perspective on nature and wildlife. My sister and I would spend our days climbing huge glacial rock formations behind our house, using the roots of trees growing on the rocks as our rope. We’d pretend we were pioneers in the winter and hike through the snow covered woods. We got tips at a young age on what to do if we crossed paths with a black bear on our walks. And thunderstorms were always a little scary because we worried a tree would fall on our house.
