Finding Reclaimed Farmhouse Tables in Vermont

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.

Megan's taking on the difficult task of selecting a favorite from the many styles and colors of Anichini linens we brought back to our showroom at Stonehurst.
Megan’s taking on the difficult task of selecting a favorite from the many styles and colors of Anichini linens we brought back to our home decor showroom at Stonehurst in Vernon, Vermont.

Anichini: The Ultimate in Luxury Linens

Last week Nina, Rebecca and I traveled up to Quechee, Vermont to visit Anichini’s company store.  Anichini is a 30 year old luxury linens company started by Susan Dollenmaier.  It’s famous the world over for exquisite textiles that are routinely featured in publications like “Architectural Digest, Elle Decor, Gotham, and House Beautiful and used by celebrities Cher, Sharon Stone, Christina Aguilera, Tom Cruise, Oprah Winfrey, Barbra Streisand, Madonna, Mariah Carey, Martha Stewart, and Steven Spielberg” (ref: wikipedia).

We’re sending our thanks to Noelle of Anichini ‘s company store in Quechee for helping Nina, Rebecca & I select the best linens for our Stonehurst showroom at Vermont Woods Studios.

Made in Vermont

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?

Decisions, decisions, decisions …

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.

Coming Soon!

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!
