American-shaker-armoire We've had a number of customers calling lately looking for natural cherry armoires for their mud rooms and foyers.  It used to be, armoires were considered strictly bedroom furniture but today the trend (throughout the home) seems to be moving away from built-in furniture towards a more flexible arrangement using cabinets, dressers, chests and armoires. 

Storage areas like entry-ways and mudrooms that might previously have been stark and strictly functional are now being dressed up and incorporated into the family living space.  It's an alternative to adding extra rooms during this economic crunch.  Consider it a free home expansion!

If you're looking for a beautiful way to store outer-wear or other necessities, consider one of our natural wood armoires, dressers or chests or even night stands. The come in many sizes and can be customized to fit perfectly into your space.  And they're not just for the bedroom anymore! 

I think even Stevie Wonder would love them.

Modern-Mission-Table American black walnut wood is the darkest natural species of wood in North America.  It has a rich chocolate-brown color, as shown here is our new Modern Mission Table.  


We offer black walnut wood as a choice for almost all of our solid wood furniture pieces at Vermont Woods Studios.  Eco-friendly walnut wood is less available though than natural cherry, maple or oak woods, thus there is currently an 18-20% premium for walnut furniture.

Walnut-sideboard We don't have many photos of walnut furniture, but you can use our drop-down menus to customize any furniture piece to be made in walnut.  Here's a photo of our Classic Shaker Dining Table in solid walnut wood and another of our Jim Andrews Contemporary Asian Sideboard in walnut.  

If you're looking for help in ordering solid walnut furniture in any of the styles on our website, give us a call or email us.  We're here to help!

241_image Customized furniture is a rare commodity these days, especially if you're shopping online.  We've had so many customers come to us after a long and frustrating search for handcrafted wood furniture that's built to order, and customized to meet the exact dimensions of their space.  If you're looking for handcrafted wood furniture in a custom size, or with custom hardware, tabletop edging, wood selection or most any customization you can think of, we can help.

All of our furniture at Vermont Woods Studios is built to order and can be customized to your exact specifications, often at little or no extra charge.


Take, for example the Cherry Moon Chest of Drawers shown here with 5 drawers.  On our website, you can order the chest with either 3, 4, 5 or 6 drawers.  You can select natural cherry, maple or walnut wood or even a two-tone combination of woods.  You can also choose between a pure natural oil finish, or a more durable, water-resistant finish.  Not enough choices on our website?  Give us a call or email us for further customizations.  We are always happy to add or trim a few inches here or there to meet your furniture needs.  Because each piece is built to order, customization is often done at little or no charge.
