Reclaimed Barnwood Sideboard
 Natural, green customized furniture from Vermont Woods Studios: that's the topic to be featured in a forthcoming About.com article by leading furniture expert, Abe Abbas.  After returning from this years largest furniture market expo in Las Vegas, Abe was noting the emphasis on natural, green, American made furniture at the show.  He comments in his furniture blog that "some companies are jumping on to the Green bandwagon in name only. They do it so as not to be left out. But here's the thing: I think consumers are becoming more well informed, so simply paying lip service may not turn out to be enough."

Abe took an interest in our natural, green furniture some months ago.  He was drawn by the authenticity of our handcrafted, made to order Vermont furniture and by the degree of customization we offer at Vermont Woods Studios.  Customers can start with any of our standard fine furniture designs and make affordable customizations often at little or no extra charge.  Look for more details in the upcoming About.com article.  Thanks, Abe for your interest in our work and your support for natural, green American made furniture.

Spotted-turtle As you may know, a major part of our mission at Vermont Woods Studios is forest conservation, and today we are celebrating BIG time. The Spotted Turtle, a small black turtle with yellow spots is so endangered in our area that a few years ago there were only 8 known specimens in the wild.   For the past several years, we have been working with Jim Andrews and the Reptile and Amphibian Atlas project at Middlebury College to study the turtle and its habitat in an effort to implement protective measures.  Last year, my neighbor, Kim Gragen and his son Elliott reported a spotted turtle sighting nearby, which was immediately followed up by the Vermont Division of Fish and Wildlife DFW.   As a result, the DFW discovered a new nesting site and last night they received permission from the Town of Vernon, Vermont to purchase 15 acres of wetlands, including the nesting site, to further our efforts to save this rare and endangered species.  Other types of reptiles, amphibeans and water fowl will also benefit from the conservation measure, including the rare Jefferson's Salamander.  More information can be found in this morning's edition of the Brattleboro Reformer.  We are grateful to the Vernon Select Board and all the people who helped to make this small but important conservation measure possible.  And we want to thank our customers too and remind them that a portion of each sale at Vermont Woods Studios is  donated to local and international organizations working to preserve the forest.

Another satisfied customer.  There is nothing in the world that makes our job more rewarding than receiving testimonials from our customers.  This week, we got word from 7 year old Isiah, who received a Vermont Woods Studios full size, solid cherry, Mission Style Bed as a Christmas present from his Grandmother, Annette.   She reports Isiah's accolades:

"Farmor, I love my bed!   I've got the best bed of anyone I know.  And I got the best sleep ever.  Farmor, there will never be another twin size bed in this house!"

Well, thanks for your feedback, Annette and Isiah.  We are thrilled to have you join our Satisfied Customer's Club.  May you have a lifetime of comfortable nights sleep on your new bed, Isiah!
