We spend so much of our lives sitting at a desk, from elementary school all the way through our work careers–but we seldom put much thought into the quality and style of the wooden desks we use. Is it eco friendly? Is it stylish? Does it represent me well? Is it even practical for my space? While there are plenty of desks on the market, many of them are mass-produced and are only built to last a few years. The wooden desks we carry at Vermont Woods Studios add sophistication, style, and a feeling of intention to your office space. If you’re a professional who takes pride in your work, then you deserve a beautiful wooden desk that will speak to your unique taste and personality!
Why Wooden desks?
There are plenty of articles and websites out there that propose that plastic is the future for the modern office. We’d have to kindly disagree. Most plastic furniture, if not recycled, is not eco-friendly and does not represent a 21st century office space. Perhaps a trendy startup might choose plastic furniture for its array of color options, but the mature work environment needs something much more than that to represent it’s values and style. Our wooden desks are 100% built in the USA with skill and integrity and made with sustainably harvested wood, giving you the benefit of supporting local craftsmen and loggers without contributing to mass deforestation.
If you are ready to ditch your mass produced desk and get a real natural wooden desk that you can love and be proud of for decades to come, take a look at our 5 sophisticated wooden desk selections:
Vermont’s natural, sustainable furniture is simple and elegant. It’s history hails back to the Shakers but today’s interior designers are re-discovering it, as modern green design trends continue to flourish. When it comes to bringing the outdoors in, what could be better than organic, real wood furniture? How about…
Organic, Real Wood Furniture Embellished by Colorful Wildflowers
This Spring Nina designed and planted a wildflower garden in the backyard at Stonehurst, Vermont’s newest furniture & home decor store. She and Dennis asked other staff members to tear themselves away from their computers now and then and help till, plant, weed and water (check out Kelsey’s story about how Nina chose flowers that would provide food and habitat for our birds, bees and butterflies). Their efforts have really paid off as the garden is now in full bloom, providing beautiful floral arrangements for the showroom (as well as pollen & nectar for our friends in flight).
We’ve had a lot of fun trying to integrate the sustainable furniture in our showroom with other elements of Vermont’s natural landscape this summer. Being in the midst of a 100 acre woodland allows us to offer customers a real appreciation for where their furniture comes from.
If you’re interested in sustainability and looking to incorporate green products into your home decor, come and visit us at Stonehurst. Any questions give us a call. Oh yes… you certainly can bring a picnic lunch and a bottle of wine!
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.
