Solid Wood Dining Room Furniture
The Modern American Dining Room Furniture set is on sale today!

Every day, multiple times a day, we sit down to eat a meal. Most people do not eat lunch at home, but lunch aside, you probably eat breakfast and dinner at home. Where in your house do you eat these meals? Do you sit at the table? Eat over the counter? Sit in front of a TV? An increasing amount of articles, which you can read here, here and here, state that those who eat in front of the TV are more likely to be obese.

You may be wondering, “why is a furniture retailer writing about the correlation between TV watching and obesity?” Let me make the connection for you: we sell dining furniture. It’s time to break that habit of sitting on the couch to eat dinner. Perhaps a new solid wood table and hardwood dining chairs would be an incentive to start having meals in your kitchen or dining room again.

Our dining room furniture is available in a variety of designs, shapes, and wood types, so there is something in our online gallery to fit any home’s style. All of our pieces of dining furniture are crafted in Vermont using sustainably harvested hardwoods. Each piece is built to order, so you can customize the piece to fit your needs. Whether you’re just looking for a small table to fit in the corner of your kitchen, or you’re looking for an extension table so you can host the next family holiday, our craftsmen can craft what you need.

Right now all of our dining room furniture is on sale! This is a buy more, save more sales event. Take 10% off one piece, 15% off two pieces, and 20% off three or more! It’s easy to earn the 20% off discount with this sale; a solid wood table and two dining chairs would do the trick! Plus, all of our dining furniture is backed by a lifetime guarantee.

Browse our online gallery (not while you’re eating, we hear that’s linked to obesity too) for your new hardwood dining furniture. If you have any questions for our fine furniture specialists, feel free to contact them.

Natural Wood Furniture | American Made in Vermont
This Natural Wood Furniture set is part of our 100% American made Modern Shaker collection.  The wood is sustainably harvested in local and regional forests that are managed by professional foresters.  Furniture finishes are non toxic and eco friendly.

American Made Furniture vs Imports

While we’ve watched the price of most home decor items skyrocket over the last 30 years, have you noticed that the price of furniture has actually tumbled?  It’s true. For a couple centuries we Americans prided ourselves on making high quality, natural wood furniture that was coveted around the world.  North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Vermont and other New England states were leaders in the fine furniture industry.

But in the 1960’s  and 70’s many of America’s big furniture makers (like Ethan Allen, Broyhill, Thomasville and Lane) started to move their operations overseas and superior quality became a thing of the past (along with hundreds of thousands of American jobs).  Prices fell dramatically.  Instead of preserving our grandparents heirloom quality wooden furniture for our homes, we began buying cheap, trendy furniture imports and replacing them frequently as breakage occured.

Natural Furniture for the Healthy Home

Fast forward to 2013 when home owners are getting tired of cheap imported furniture that ends up on the curbside in 5 years.  And they’re worried about the health effects of toxic flame retardants and formaldehyde that come standard with imports. Especially in households with children, it is simply not worth the risk.

Families are coming back to American made natural wood furniture with non-toxic finishes.  Yes the furniture is more expensive up front, primarily because the American worker is paid a livable wage (as compared to wages that often amount to just a few dollars/day in Asia).  But the high quality and environmental integrity of American made furniture is winning customers over.  In fact, many brands  are offered with a lifetime guarantee, indicative of the superior value of American made furniture over time.

What kind of furniture is in your home?  Where was it made?  Is it time to rediscover the real thing?  Learn more about American made, natural wood furniture on the sustainability section of our website.

Polywood Rocking Chairs | Jefferson Rocker is This Week Best Seller
These POLYWOOD Rockers were our best sellers last week.  Shown here in white frames with Cahaba black woven wicker seats, these comfy, high end Jefferson rockers are available in 6 different recycled plastic frame colors and 4 different wicker colors.

Isn’t Springtime great for relaxing in your rocking chair on the front porch?  You can grab a drink and a friend and watch the world go by.  I know Douglas is chomping at the bit to do this at Stonehurst as he’s got 6 of POLYWOOD Jefferson Rockers all assembled and ready to put on the porch.  We’re hoping we’ll all be able to sit out there by the end of the month or so, as renovations are scheduled to wind down by then.

Since POLYWOOD Rockers were our best sellers last week, we must not be the only ones longing to get outside and enjoy the Spring air.  If you’re one of those people and need a sturdy, high end, all weather chair you can leave on the porch throughout the year, give the Jefferson Rocker a look.  It can be ordered with or without wicker in your choice of 6 traditional colors: white, black, teak, mahogany, sand and green.

POLYWOOD furniture is eco friendly and made in America from recycled plastic milk jugs.  It’s ultra-durable, weather-resistant and can be left outside all year round.  At Vermont Woods Studios we guarantee our POLYWOOD furniture for a lifetime of use and we offer a low price guarantee as well.

Find more buyer protection policies for POLYWOOD furniture and learn why these Jefferson Rockers were our best sellers, by browsing our website — perhaps from your front porch.  Enjoy the Spring weather while you do.

All Weather Outdoor Furniture
This All Weather Outdoor Furniture is maintenance free, giving you more time to relax and enjoy the summer.  The Adirondack chairs shown are part of our POLYWOOD South Beach Collection.

In Vermont, spring and summer slip by all too quickly so when winter finally rolls out of sight, we want to get outside and relax in the sunshine ASAP.  And that’s where the beauty of POLYWOOD all weather outdoor furniture comes in so handy.  There’s no longer any need to go schlepping downstairs to the basement and dragging heavy outdoor furniture outside before you can relax on the patio in the warm sunshine.

POLYWOOD is new type of American made, recycled plastic furniture that can be left outdoors all winter long!  It’s basically impervious to harsh weather such as rain, snow, ice, and salt water.  Made from recycled milk jugs, POLYWOOD is a thick, heavy, dense plastic designed to replicate high quality tropical lumber like mahogany and teak.  It’s maintenance free and insect, mold and mildew-proof.  And POLYWOOD is available in natural colors, plus white, black and a wide variety of vibrant contemporary colors.  Best of all, POLYWOOD colors are infused throughout the recycled plastic lumber, rather than just on the surface so there’s no need to ever refinish.  Hooray!

Now your Springtime routine of lugging furniture to the patio, scrubbing it clean, scraping old paint and applying new paint pretty much boils down to this:  pour wine, sit on your POLYWOOD with a book and relax in the sunshine.

Check out additional details about this all weather outdoor furniture, including our POLYWOOD lifetime guarantee, low price guarantee and the Top 10 Reasons to Buy POLYWOOD from Vermont Woods Studios.
