Hardwood furniture is experiencing a renaissance this year. It’s always been a classic, but over the years modern materials (metal, plastics, glass, wicker, rattan, bamboo, concrete) have become popular furniture components. Looking at today’s online home decor authorities such as Houzz and Apartment Therapy however, it seems real solid hardwood furniture is making a comeback! Here’s a run-down of the Top 5 Hardwood Furniture Style Trends we’ve seen at Vermont Woods Studios this year:
This Mission Style Sofa Table that Douglas uses to display hardware is one of our top sellers this year. Straight, simple lines and solid hardwood construction characterize Mission style furniture. Similarly styled mission dining room and bedroom furniture, built by the same furniture maker has also experienced renewed popularity. Instead of the traditional oak wood, many customers are customizing their mission furniture in cherry and even walnut wood.
Arts and Crafts and Craftsman Furniture
This Cherry Moon 7 Drawer Dresser shows off it’s Arts and Crafts and Craftsman Style roots in our showroom at Stonehurst. Made in a small workshop just north of Montpelier, the Cherry Moon collection is so popular this year that the craftsman now has a lead time of 4 months!
Modern Hardwood Furniture
Copeland’s new Kyoto Dining Collection is a modern version of 20th century, mid-century modern MCM design. It’s minimalist, uncluttered look with clean, straight lines is highly sought after by our interior design friends in Boston and New York.
