Maple and Walnut Wood Furniture | 2 Tone Combinations
This modern 2 tone combination of walnut and maple wood furniture is offered in the SoHo collection.  Made by Copeland Furniture, SoHo provides many options for customizing the combination of light maple and dark walnut wood tones.

Maple furniture is making a comeback!  For many years, cherry has been our customers’ favorite hardwood but in 2015 we’re seeing that maple wood is giving cherry a run for the money.  This is a welcome trend for those of us in the Vermont forestry community since maple is a hardwood that grows extremely well in the Green Mountain state (indeed maple is the Vermont state tree).  It’s sustainably harvested nearby, making it a great choice for eco-friendly furniture.

Although maple furniture is beautiful on it’s own, many customers are dressing it up with walnut or cherry wood accents.  One example of this design is in Copeland Furniture’s Modern SoHo bedroom furniture collection.  The picture above shows SoHo in maple and walnut wood but it is made to order and can also be customized in all maple wood.

Maple Furniture with Walnut Wood Accents
This Classic Shaker huntboard was customized in light maple wood with a dark walnut top and walnut drawer pulls.  Thanks to Margot G in Knoxville, TN for sending us her photo!

Nearly all of our furniture at Vermont Woods Studios can be customized in maple wood, regardless of the wood it’s shown in on our website.  This photo was sent to us by Margot G in Knoxville, Tennessee.  Margo created her own unique version of our Classic Shaker Hunt Board by choosing maple wood (rather than cherry) and accenting it with a walnut top and walnut drawer pulls.  It’s beautiful, don’t you think?

Astrid furniture is made in Vermont by Copeland Furniture
Astrid modern bedroom furniture is available in maple wood (as shown) as well as cherry and walnut.  It’s hand made in Vermont by Copeland Furniture.

Another example of modern maple furniture is the Astrid bedroom furniture collection (shown above).  Astrid is dramatic and sophisticated.  It’s been a favorite of contemporary urban dwellers from Manhattan to Los Angeles.

Check out our website for more examples of modern maple furniture.  Use the drop-down menus to customize your wood choices online.  If you don’t see exactly what you want, give us a call and we’ll talk about further customization.  It’s more affordable than you might think.

Adirondack Chairs
Looks like summer is actually here, finally! We’re so excited that POLYWOOD season has begun and we can put our outdoor furniture to good use. Won’t you come join us? Summer at Stonehurst is lovely and we have plenty of space for visitors to walk around, hike, see some wildlife, or just relax in our Adirondack chairs and enjoy a nice cold drink!

Adirondack chairs are true staples of summer. They are comfy, colorful, and make the perfect lounging chairs for long days next to the lake or pool. (Or if you’re in the middle of Vermont like us, they make the perfect seats for kicking back and taking in the view!)

Our POLYWOOD Adirondack chairs are special because they are not made from real wood. They are crafted from recycled plastic lumber, or more simply, 300+ recycled milk jugs! While we wouldn’t usually promote reliance on plastics, these chairs keep thousands of pounds of plastic from ending up in landfills each year. They’re ultra durable, can survive through hot summers and the snowiest of winters, and we guarantee them for life.

We have many styles of Adirondack chairs, some of our favorites include: 

Our South Beach Adirondack Dining Chairs-

Adirondak Chairs
The South Beach Outdoor Dining Chair is styled after Classic Adirondack Chair designs and is offered in both traditional and vibrant colors. Dine outdoors in style and comfort.

Our Long Island Adirondack Chairs-

The Long Island Adirondack Chair is inspired by classic wood designs with a modern twist. But this high quality Adirondack Style Chair is made from an innovative,maintenance free recycled plastic which delivers the look and beauty of traditional solid wood outdoor furniture without the weathering, splintering, and rotting concerns.

and our Classic Folding Adirondack Chairs-

Adirondack Chairs
Our Classic Adirondack Chair is the best choice for your outdoor porch, deck, patio, garden, or lawn. Just relax and enjoy for years to come. Choose from 7 traditional or 6 vibrant colors: slate grey, blue, teak, tangerine, red, sand, mahogany, lime, lemon yellow, green, black, aruba or white.

The differences in these three Adirondack styles are subtle, but we have dozens more for you to enjoy! Where would you put your Adirondack chair this summer? Let us know in the comments or on twitter.

Best Wood for Outdoor Furniture?
I think the best wood to use for outdoor furniture isn’t wood at all. It’s POLYWOOD, made out of recycled milk jugs and guaranteed for a lifetime of outdoor use.  Shown here is the new Bayline Dining Furniture Collection.

Tis the season for buying outdoor furniture and prepare for spring and summer!  Even in Vermont we have a couple nice days each year when everyone wants to lounge in the sun with a cold drink and a good book.

Our customers often discover us when they’re searching for American made, eco-friendly furniture.  We’ve worked in collaboration with Vermont furniture makers for many years but have stuck to selling just sustainable indoor furniture for the dining room, bedroom and home office.

So when customers began to ask for outdoor porch, pool and patio furniture we were at a loss.  What type of wood could we make it out of?  The cherry, maple, walnut and oak woods we typically use for indoor furniture won’t hold up to outdoor conditions.  Plus, we offer a lifetime guarantee on our furniture.  How would we do this for an outdoor line?

Adirondack Chairs | Polywood | Recycled Plastic
This POLYWOOD Classic Adirondack chair is made in America of recycled plastic.  We guarantee it for a lifetime of use!

American Made Outdoor Furniture

We considered many options.  Teak and mahogany are about the only types of wood that would meet our standards for weather resistance and longevity but they are both rainforest woods that are often harvested illegally and unsustainably.  Not an option.

So after researching all the alternatives we selected an American made wood-alternative material for our first outdoor furniture line. It’s called poly wood and it’s made in Indiana of recycled plastic milk jugs.  It’s not real wood, but it has the look, thickness, weight, and feel of real wood plus it’s virtually indestructible and maintenance free.  No more scraping, painting, or weatherproofing needed.  POLYWOOD recycled plastic furniture can even be left outside year round eliminating the need for seasonal storage.

So that’s what we chose for our first outdoor furniture line.  We really do feel that POLYWOOD is the best “wood” to use for outdoor furniture.  With summer being so short up here in Vermont, we want to spend it enjoying our all-weather outdoor furniture rather than maintaining it!  How about you?  Check out the POLYWOOD furniture collections we offer.  It’s eco-friendly, Made in America outdoor furniture and it comes with free shipping and a lifetime guarantee.  Pretty tough to beat, I say.

Rec ycled Plastic Chaise Lounge
This POLYWOOD chaise lounge weighs over 50# so it won’t blow away when high winds come in off the ocean.  It’s available in 12 different colors including red, yellow, blue, orange, green, black and white.
