Walnut Dining Furniture | Tables | Chairs | Buffets | Sideboards | China Cabinets
We just received several new walnut dining furniture pieces, including this Bistro Table, the Classic Shaker Chair #2 and the American Mission Chair. Natural dark heartwood walnut is so beautiful, nothing compares. Come see for yourself at Stonehurst, Vermont’s newest fine furniture and art gallery.

Our friends (and shipping partners) Anthony, Tony and Henry brought in two truckloads of Vermont handmade furniture for Stonehurst today and most of it is in walnut and cherry wood. We now have several walnut dining furniture pieces, including this Bistro Table, the Classic Shaker Chair #2 and the American Mission Chair.

Have you noticed that real, solid black walnut dining furniture is becoming rare? If you’ve been shopping and find yourself unimpressed with what you see, there’s a reason for that. Disease and global warming are taking their toll on American black walnut trees, as we’ve described in previous walnut blog posts. Much of the walnut you’ll see in mainstream furniture stores is either imported wood that’s stained dark or walnut sapwood that’s steamed to look like heartwood. Our craftsman, Robin captured my feelings exactly: “natural dark heartwood walnut is so beautiful, nothing compares”.

Fortunately for those searching for real walnut furniture, our craftspeople at Vermont Woods Studios specialize in finding high quality, natural wood that’s been sustainably harvested. The flip side of course is that, because of the relative rarity of walnut, there is a price premium which can be anywhere from 15%-30% per piece.

Learn more about walnut wood on our website and give Liz and Sean a call with your questions.

Almost every piece of furniture on our website can be custom made in walnut, even if the feature photos show cherry, oak or maple wood.  Browse through walnut wood furniture photos here.

Wooden Dining Chairs | The 4 Hardwoods That Will Last Forever
From left: Modern High Back Dining Chair in Cherry WoodAmerican Mission Long Back Wave Chair in Oak Wood, the Classic Shaker Chair #2 in Walnut Wood and the Classic Shaker Chair #1 in Maple Wood.  Which wood would look best in your dining room?

Vermont is known for the quality, variety and style of it’s handmade solid wood dining chairs.  As we fill our new Stonehurst showroom up with furniture, Douglas is trying to provide lots of different examples of chair styles and woods.  We have 37 different dining chairs on our website and most of them are available in a couple different types of hardwood.  The best sellers are available for you to sit in and check for comfort and style.

I snapped this photo because it shows the 4 most popular hardwoods for dining chairs and customers often ask for advice on how to choose the best one.  From left, the chairs are the:

You can see that the cherry wood chair (far left) has a deep, rich reddish tone whereas the darker walnut chair  (3rd from left) is chocolate brown in color.  The oak chair (2nd from left) is a lighter wood but it still has lots of grain pattern in it.  The maple chair (far right) is the lightest wood, with minimal grain variation.

So how to choose the right wood color for your kitchen or dining room?  Well, of course you’re going to want to consider what your dining table is made of.  And how the chairs will fit into the rest of your dining area.  But don’t feel you have to match the chairs to the type of wood in your dining table or on your floor.  Here’s an example of mixing woods that interior designer, Susan Jay put together with our Modern High Back Dining Chairs.  Susan used 2 different woods (cherry and walnut) for her chairs and she customized them by sending us a bold, vibrant fabric to upholster them with.

Check out Houzz and Pinterest for more ideas on how to choose the hardwood that best suits your style for dining chairs.

Are you looking for a special color or stain for your wooden dining chairs?  Well as a general rule, Vermont craftsman are going to try and persuade you to love and accept the unique beauty that Mother Nature has bestowed upon her different wood species.  They (and we) will tend to recommend natural, clear wood finishes that allow the beauty of the wood to express itself.  We do however, understand the need for custom stains and finishes and can often accommodate special requests.  Try browsing through our dining chairs — many have a pull down menu of stain options.  If you don’t find what you want, give Liz or Sean for help.  They’re experts at helping customers get exactly what they’re looking for.

Made to Order Furniture | Lead Time | Handmade in Vermont
This Modern American Buffet-Sideboard which doubles as a TV console or media center is typical of our made to order furniture.  It’s handmade in Vermont of solid wood and guaranteed to last a lifetime.  Would you be willing to wait 5-18 weeks to have this piece made for you and delivered to your home?

How long would you be willing to wait to have solid wood, made to order furniture created just for you?  Four weeks?  Eight weeks?  Three months?  Four months?

Lead time is something we struggle with in the world of Vermont’s handmade furniture.  It used to be the typical lead time for a piece like the Modern American Buffet-Sideboard (shown above) was 5-8 weeks.  But, alas with the Internet– Vermont made furniture has been re-discovered! It’s popularity is growing and rightly so– it’s beautiful, affordable, American made and sustainable.

The downside of this popularity rebirth, however is that customers sometimes have to wait longer to receive their custom made treasures.  They ask us:  WHY DOES IT TAKE SO LONG?

Well I guess it all goes back to the laws of supply and demand.  A growing awareness of Vermont made to order furniture is keeping our independent woodworkers busy around the clock.  Many of them are growing their businesses in response to demand but it’s going to take a little time.  As they say… quality can’t be rushed.

In response to our steady growth, we recently allied with a furniture maker from across the river in New Hampshire, to design a couple new lines of furniture for us.  Quite a shocking move for a company that’s all about Vermont made furniture, but fortunately, the skills and aesthetics of local woodworkers doesn’t stop at the Connecticut River.  More on that move next week.

For now, I just want to assure you that we are doing our very best to keep lead times to a minimum.  Neville has placed a “Lead Time” tab on every product page to let you know the current estimated ETA for that piece, including shipping and delivery (the average lead time is about 9 weeks but, depending on the piece and the craftsman it could be anywhere between 5 and 18 weeks).

Although, occasionally a craftsman will get sick or a delivery truck will be detained by weather, we do our very best to ensure deliveries are made within those time frames.  If you have questions about an existing order, or are thinking of placing a new order– give our crackerjack sales and customer service staff (Liz, Sean, Michelle and Loryn) a call to discuss further specifics.  And let us know on Facebook:  how much time would you consider “reasonable” to wait for your made to order furniture?
