You may be wondering how can Rustic and Industrial design cohabitate. Chic rustic furniture tends to have a handmade feel to it and has often been distressed and given a worn look if not truly vintage. A room styled with a rustic theme will often have mismatched furniture and give off a charming country atmosphere if done right.
Industrial designed furniture tends to look more modern and contemporary, using metals and dark colors. It looks sleek and cool and can sometimes seem sterile if not styled properly. So what do you get when you combine the two? Design genius in my opinion!
If you’ve shopped with us before you may have noticed our sales center around a room or a style as true with many retailers. The more you buy from that room, the more you save. But what if your furniture shopping list is more like some odds and ends? We get that, and that’s why we offer our Make A Set Sale every spring!
Last week I visited Michoacan, Mexico, the winter home to Vermont’s big, beautiful orange and black Monarch butterfly. As a wood furniture company we at Vermont Woods Studios wanted to support a reforestation project that would help protect the endangered butterfly’s habitat. I did quite a bit of research, trying to understand who was leading area environmental efforts and then I traveled to Mexico to see if we could help them.
I want you to think about the last few homes you visited. Do remember if they had an office or designated area in their home for a desk? When I think about, the majority of the homes I visit, in fact don’t have an office space and if they do, it’s seldom used.
When did using a desk become taboo? While I know we won’t come up with an exact answer here, I have a hunch that it’s related to our constant on-the-go mentality and separation anxiety from our electronics.
