Did you know that furniture goes in and out of fashion, just like clothing? Weird, huh? You can find out what the latest furniture styles are at any one of a plethora of fine furniture fairs in New York, Paris, Milan, High Point (North Carolina), Las Vegas and lots of other-worldly places. There’s a whole industry of consultants that (secretly) meet to decide what the next season’s styles and colors will be. Their “recommendations” are followed by all the big furniture companies and that’s why you see so much similarity in offerings from year to year.
Recently, the new furniture styles have had an ultra modern theme, with bright neon colors, lots of glass, plastic & aluminum construction and the occasional fake fur accent. So we’re pleasantly surprised to see the re-emergence of Mission and Craftsman Style Furniture in the fashion lineup. Maybe people have had enough of those interesting conversation pieces and are longing for something beautiful, comfortable and functional for their homes.
For generations Vermont has been the premiere point of origin for some of the best mission and craftsman style furniture the world has to offer. Check out the Contemporary Craftsman Furniture set shown above. The emphasis for this craftsman is simple elegance– using honest handcrafted, wooden furniture to transform a home into an authentic, relaxed, uncluttered haven for all those who enter.
In Vermont we don’t pay all that much attention to the latest high fashion trends in furniture styles. What we do focus on though, is genuine high quality, handcrafted, solid wood furniture that’s 100% USA made and guaranteed for a lifetime of enjoyment in your home. Find more mission and craftsman style furniture sets on our website, Facebook and Pinterest boards.
