Heirloom Quality & Retro Design:  Our New Mid-Century Modern Bedroom Furniture Collection

Mid-Century Modern Bedroom Furniture fans often have a hard time finding Mid-Century pieces that are truly high quality, solid wood designs. A simple search on google or Pinterest might bring up thousands of stores and pieces for you to sort through, but many of them are cheaply made and designed only to be used for a season or so. For those who love the nostalgic Mid-Century style but also appreciate timeless design and craftsmanship, the search can be daunting. Our Copeland Contour Bedroom furniture, however, is heirloom quality and built to last a lifetime. It is crafted with real solid wood, making it the obvious choice for both value and style.

The Contour Bed features a solid, continuous ribbon of walnut hardwood wrapping around the outside of the mattress and slatted headboard. Just like the Contour Bed, Contour case pieces have gracefully softened curved corners and edges–reminiscent of traditional Mid-Century Modern Bedroom Furniture. Each case piece is strikingly complete with an Opel laminated glass top which contrasts beautifully with the dark tones of the walnut wood. This entire set is finely crafted in Vermont using sustainably harvested wood.

It’s exquisitely curved corners, rich American Black Walnut, and sleek, clean lines exemplify streamline Mid-Century modernism. This collection effortlessly melds contemporary style with minimalist design, providing the perfect modern-day bedroom oasis.

We don’t typically re-share articles from others, but when I read  “The First American Modernists” by Lance Esplund, I knew I had to share it with our community of Shaker furniture lovers. Lance provides a thoughtful, interesting look at the Shakers and Shaker furniture, as inspired by an art exhibit at the Farnsworth Art Museum in Rockland, Maine. The exhibition, titled “The Shakers: From Mount Lebanon to the World,”  provided a historical overview of the Shakers and their simplistic, spiritual lifestyle; focusing on the craft of their now world recognized furniture.

While Shaker communities were once vibrant and thriving, there are now only 3 Shakers left. Brother Arnold Hadd and his two elderly sisters practice their faith at Sabbathday Lake’s Shaker Village in New Glouster Maine. It’s the worlds last active Shaker Community. Brother Arnold Spoke at the exhibit & covered topics such as the concept of “Shaker Style” (which he claims does not exist) and the inspiration behind their modest furniture design. According to Esplund, the exhibit was full of Shaker Furniture. He goes on to explain:

 “That “classic” Shaker style is well represented here in strong, unassuming cupboards, tables, desks and chests of drawers; delicately crafted oval wooden nesting boxes; inviting, wide-mouthed wooden bowls; tightly woven rugs and baskets; and sprightly, no-nonsense ladder-back chairs. Made of chestnut, walnut, flame birch and bird’s-eye maple, these lightweight, sturdy chairs have rhythmically dynamic woven cane and checkerboard tape seats. They could be easily hung on wall pegs to allow for the ecstatic “shaking” dancing prayers for which the “Believers” became commonly known.”

While I haven’t had the opportunity to see the exhibit first hand, I have a deep appreciation for Shaker Furniture and it’s honest, unassuming design. Rich with history, Shaker Furniture has a legacy and heritage that we are proud to represent here at Vermont Woods Studios. If you’re interested in learning more about this Shaker exhibition, Esplund’s article is full of practical insight on the history and inspiration behind their furniture.
