Shaker-furniture-sale Manjula stayed up late last night getting our new Shaker Style Furniture Sale up and running on the website.  I think Shaker furniture is our most popular style.  

 

We have six different Shaker collections and all are handmade here in Vermont using sustainably harvested, natural solid wood:

Modern-American-Furniture We have three new American made furniture collections at Vermont Woods Studios and we're celebrating finally getting these up and running on our website with a big 15% off sale.  These collections:

Modern American Furniture
Modern Shaker Furniture and
Contemporary Craftsman Furniture

are all handmade in Burlington, Vermont at a small workshop that's been focusing on simplicity and quality since 1970.  

 

Modern-Shaker-Office-Furniture Arthur's classic, high quality, solid hardwood furniture is visually striking while clearly showing the quality of his craftsmanship.  His dining room, bedroom and office furniture is available in solid cherry, walnut, and maple as well as blended combinations of these three wood species.  Arthur takes great pride in his color and grain matching when he selects individual pieces of wood for your furniture and the hand rubbed linseed oil finish he uses really shows off the natural characteristics of the wood.

 

 

Contemporary Craftsman Bedroom Furniture These Modern American Furniture collections are some of our most high end furniture and that is reflected in the price.  With this 10-15% off sale though you have a chance to acquire them at a price that's lower than many of those in our other collections.  Have a look and keep in mind that the sale ends April 19.  We'll look forward to hearing from you if you have any questions.

Vermont Woods Studios 15% for the Forest Initiative
as published on E-wire, April 16, 2009

VERNON, VERMONT, Apr. 16 — Vermont Woods Studios, a group of fine furniture makers in Vermont, is giving back to the forest that supplies the wood for their craft.


From Earth Day on April 22 until the Summer Solstice on June 21, the company will sponsor it's 15% For The Forest initiative, where 15% of the profits from each sale will be donated to charitable organizations working to protect the forest environment.

"We depend on sustainable forests for our livelihood, and therefore, conservation is a fundamental part of our business," says furniture maker and co-owner, Ken Farabaugh.  "As stewards of the forest, we must try to counter-balance the threats of over-development, acid rain and climate change. If our forests are not sustainable, then our wood furniture business will not be sustainable either."


Organizations receiving donations all have a long history of success in forest conservation. "We're always excited to partner with them," Farabaugh states. "We've even named some of our furniture lines after their leadership.  For example, our Jim Andrews Natural Cherry Furniture Collection is named for the champion of the Vermont Reptile and Amphibian Atlas project, and the Roz Renfrew Shaker Furniture Collection is named for a Vermont Center for Ecostudies scientist who studies Vermont's migrating birds."


Vermont-Made-Shaker-China-Cabinet  A look at the Vermont Woods Studios website reveals many styles of natural, solid hardwood furniture, all handmade in Vermont from sustainably harvested and reclaimed wood. "We offer Shaker, mission, craftsman, modern and transitional styles in price ranges from affordable to ultra luxury," notes Farabaugh.


"Each piece is made to order and because of that, we do a lot of customization. If for example, someone wants a chest made a bit narrower to fit between two windows, or a table a little bit longer to accommodate extra guests, we can customize that affordably."


 Many times customizations are done at no extra charge which has helped to create a growing trend of people who are discovering the affordable luxury of customized, American-made furniture.


Vermont-made-shaker-moon-bed "Why not get exactly what you want," asks Farabaugh. "After all, when you buy furniture from us, it's got a lifetime guarantee. Your furniture will be around for generations to come, and you'll want it to be just right."

Or maybe over 6 feet tall?  If so, maybe it's time to think about Customized Furniture, that's made to order, specifically for you, your family and your home.

Of course, your height is just one of many reasons to choose customized furniture.  Maybe you have a narrow space between two windows, and you can't find the right size chest of drawers to fit.  Or perhaps your kitchen is long and narrow and you need a table that's 7 feet long and only 2 feet wide.

Whatever the reason, you can have your furniture customized to your exact specifications, so it fits perfectly into your home and your family's lifestyle.  And why not?

At Vermont Woods Studios, we build each piece of our fine, handcrafted furniture to order, especially for you.  So it's easy for us to shorten the height of your dresser, or widen the width of your table or make any number of other customizations you might need.  Often alterations can be made for little or no charge.  Give us a call (888-390-5571) and let's get started now!
