When traveling through Vermont or New England, you can’t help but notice old, dilapidated barns and buildings along the twisting and turning roads. Over 200 years of harsh New England weather have left these antique treasures in desperate need of rebirth.
Focus and recharge with new home office and living room furniture during our first Fall furniture sale of the season.
Pumpkin spice season is upon us! Soon it’ll be time to break out the thick sweaters, jackets and boots here in Vermont. As a native New Englander, Fall is definitely my favorite time of the year. I get to plan apple picking trips, bake lots of pie, run through piles of leaves with my black lab Charlie and watch the foliage change on my ride into work.
This is Part 1 of a series of posts on DIY home decor for Vermont’s second home owners.
Second Homes in Vermont
Second home sales in Vermont are booming. Last weekend, Ken and I took a drive through Wilmington & Dover in southeastern Vermont, home to resort communities like The Hermitage Club, Mount Snow and Stratton Mountain. New homes & developments are everywhere in the Deerfield Valley, especially luxury second homes and vacation homes.
Our showroom at Stonehurst features all Vermont made home decor items, such as:
Furniture, handcrafted by Lyndon Furniture in Lyndonville, VT, Copeland Furniture in Bradford, VT and a handful of small to medium sized woodworking studios around the state
Lighting, hand-forged by Hubbardton Forge in Castleton, VT
Glassware, hand-blown by Simon Pearce in Quechee, VT
So we’ve been thinking about carrying Vermont made textiles for awhile. Fortunately, we’re just an hour and a half away from one of the premiere textile brands on the planet… Anichini! Who knew the Green Mountain State had such a world class assembly of home decor?
Anichini’s Company Store
The Company Store has samples of almost all Anichini linens and we had a wonderful time seeing and feeling these beautiful linens. Nina, Rebecca and I were like kids in a candy store. Heather and Noelle were the resident experts and they helped us select the products we thought would most appeal to our customers at Stonehurst.
Rebecca already has a nice selection of Anichini linens displayed in our showroom at Stonehurst. Nina will be taking professional quality photos over the next several months. She and Tristan will then be posting items for sale on our website. You can bookmark the Home Decor section of our website and check in from time to time to see it all coming together. Better yet, visit us at 538 Huckle Hill Road in Vernon, Vermont to see Anichini linens in person. You’ll be glad you did!
OK, maybe it’s not your classic go-to for perfect pairs but we think they’re a pretty natural combination. Over the last 2 years we’ve been putting different home decor designs together at Stonehurst, our fine furniture showroom. I think our best combination is the marriage of Vermont’s handmade wooden furniture and Hubbardton Forge’s hand-forged lamps. Customers agree! So we just added a wide selection of Hubbardton Forge table lamps, floor lamps and chandeliers to the home decor section of our website. Here are some of the most popular lamps that customers are pairing with our Vermont made furniture:
