We know that buying fine wood furniture is a big investment, and we want you to feel as comfortable as possible making a decision that we believe, shouldn’t be rushed.

We believe that there is no better place to shop for Vermont wood furniture than in our showroom, nestled in the woods of Vernon, Vermont. All of our furniture comes from sustainably harvested forests, much like the one right in our backyard. Shopping at Stonehurst brings you closer to where your furniture really comes from. Visit us, and experience the beauty of Vermont wood, inside and out.

Unlike your traditional furniture shopping experience, at Stonehurst there is no need to rush. Feel free to bring a bottle of wine and a picnic lunch, and enjoy a relaxed country atmosphere while you get to know our furniture. Each member of our sales staff is an expert in Vermont wood, so even if you aren’t ready to purchase, we’d love for you to stop by and have a conversation with one of our friendly staff members and get to know more about Vermont Woods Studios.

At Stonehurst, we don’t have aisle after aisle of furniture. The pieces we carry at Stonehurst are just a representative sampling of the hundreds of pieces we offer on our online store. The pieces that we have in the showroom are a true reflection of the quality and craftsmanship that you can expect with all of our furniture.

Besides Vermont’s rich tradition for handcrafted furniture, Vermont is also known for its talented artisans. Did you know that Vermont has more artisans per capita than any other state in the US? We carry a variety of interior décor and artisans pieces in celebration of Vermont’s history of fine artistry and craftsmanship, and because we understand that designing your home doesn’t end at the hardwood furniture.

Come visit us at Stonehurst, it’s well worth the trip!

Vermont Tree Society | Conserving Champion Trees in the Green Mountain State
 In doing some research, trying to figure out where this anonymous gift came from, I discovered a couple articles about Loona Brogan.  Loona’s a naturalist in Plainfield, responsible for starting the Vermont Big Tree Society.

Who put this Vermont Big Tree Society 2004 calendar on my desk over the weekend? What a pleasant surprise to see while un-bundling (that’s winter outerwear not cable TV or software programs) on this icy cold Monday morning.  Whoever the Big Tree Elf is, he or she left the calendar open to the August 2004 month where a beautiful photo of our Stonehurst champion Sassafras tree was featured in all it’s glory.

Well we happen to think it’s glorious, anyway.  To others it might look a little nerdy and decrepit but it’s still a beloved old tree and the largest of it’s species in all of Vermont.  I learned from the calendar that the Sassafras is an intolerant (of shade) tree which is common as a pioneer (a hardy species that’s the first to colonize previously disrupted or damaged ecosystems, beginning a chain of ecological succession that ultimately leads to a more biodiverse steady-state ecosystem, ref: wikipedia).    It’s one of only a few tree species who’s leaves come in 3 different shapes.  Plus it’s fragrant and the roots can be used to make sassafras tea!

Sassafras Tree | Vernon Vermont | Big Tree Champion
Last summer, our Windham County Forester Bill Guenther led the 20th Annual Big Tree Tour and stopped by to show his group of treehuggers our sassafras at Stonehurst.

Are you surprised to see how much Vermonters love their trees?  As furniture makers, working with sustainably harvested wood we are especially interested in Vermont’s big trees and the issue of sustainable forestry throughout the Green Mountain State (and beyond).  Vermont Woods Studios was founded on the principles of forest conservation.  Last year we received a $100,000 grant from the states Working Lands Initiative to further our efforts in promoting sustainable forests and the eco-friendly Vermont made furniture produced from them.

Fellow treehuggers– stop by Stonehurst to see Vermont’s biggest sassafras tree.  Then come in and enjoy a cup of tea or hot cider as you browse through the gallery of fine furniture that Vermonter’s are making out of sustainably harvested New England wood.

And whoever the Big Tree elf is, I am sending a million thanks out to you.  Please reveal your identity on our Facebook!

As I walked around our beautiful furniture and decor showroom today, I found myself in meditative awe at how beautiful even the smallest details can be. From the furniture to the pottery, linen, and artwork– the simplicity of a curve, line, or edge proved to be just as beautiful as the whole.

The way light shines on the wood, reflects on the glass, or highlights the intricacy of a piece  of pottery are such subtle aspects of our showroom that should not be overlooked.

I’ll keep this post short, and invite you to visit our showroom to see for yourself the exquisite detailing in each piece we have at Stonehurst.

Vermont Made Furniture Review
B.R, A customer from Rhode Island, left us a wonderful company review. After visiting our new Vermont Furniture showroom, she ordered a Brandon Bed, a Cherry Moon 6 Drawer Dresser, an American Shaker Night Stand, and a Cherry Moon 5 Drawer Chest.

 

Just yesterday we received a wonderful review from one of our customers. She had visited Stonehurst to get a true feel for the quality of our pieces, and needless to say, had a great Vermont Furniture shopping experience with us in person and online! Here is what she had to say:

“Good morning, 

Our bedroom furniture has arrived and we love it! It is beautiful. Everything about this experience was perfect – the showroom tour, where everyone was so friendly and helpful, and where there was a lot to look at, the furniture itself, the update halfway through, and the delivery. 

Thank you – we made do for a long time with used furniture I never really liked that much. This was worth the wait and the money. I’m already looking forward to another trip (when it’s a bit warmer out!) to see you, and a few more Vermont Woods additions to our household. 

Thanks again.”  

–B.R from Rhode Island

We’re so glad that B.R (name withheld for privacy) had a good experience with us, and proves to us that making a visit to Stonehurst before you place an order can enhance your shopping experience and allow you to see just how beautiful our wood furniture is. If you too have been using old, used furniture in your home; consider making the upgrade to custom handcrafted wood furniture instead. Backed by a lifetime guarantee, it’s more than worth it.
