It’s Time For Our Spring Make A Set Sale

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!

Save Up To 20% Off Our Handmade Wood Furniture This Holiday Season!

Last weekend, as I was on my way to a Yankee Swap, I stopped at the mall to pick up my last minute gift and as I pulled into the entrance I said to myself, “You’ve got to be kidding me?!” I was greeted by police. They were directing traffic, patrolling the lots and probably just as happy to see me as I was to see them. As I drove around the mall almost every single parking spot was taken. I circled like a hawk to see if there was anywhere less congested and unsurprisingly there wasn’t!

As I finally parked and started walking into the mall I thought to myself, is this really the way we measure the holidays now? When I got into the mall though I quickly realized why everyone was there. Unbeatable sale prices.

I almost lost track of why I was there in the first place. Once I gathered my senses, I bought a candle and tea for the Swap and got out of there as fast as I could.

As I started to drive home the next day I found myself back at the mall. I just couldn’t leave knowing there were such great deals without getting myself something. So I trekked back through the clogged corridors of the mall and squeezed between shoppers to find the few items I had been holding off on buying.

I left feeling satisfied. I hadn’t fallen into any major sale “traps”, I used coupons when I could and I got what I needed and had been wanting to get at a better price than I would’ve if I had waited.

I think most of us like to scoff at the materialism that has taken over the holiday season but, one thing can’t be argued, the deals that extend to all types of products can’t be beat. December has indeed become a great season to make major purchases.

So with that in mind, it’s time to kick off our annual Year End Holiday Furniture Sale. Starting today (through years end) go ahead and treat yourself to some beautiful real hardwood furniture and save. During the sale you will save 10% off one piece of furniture, 15% off two pieces and 20% off three or more pieces storewide. All of our furniture is handmade right here in Vermont and is available in Cherry, Maple, Oak and Walnut woods.

You can shop conveniently and safely from the comfort of your home all while avoiding the hoards of people flocking to the mall for last minute gifts.

Our website is designed to make the buying process as easy and helpful as possible, but if you have any questions or if something is unclear about a piece of furniture you’re interested in, please don’t hesitate to call our Showroom toll free at 888-390-5571.

A Labor Day Furniture Sale in Honor of all that You Do

As the summer months come to a graceful fold, it is high time we all have a little celebration. We work hard, some of us all through the summer months. Labor Day signifies the closing of our sunnier months here in New England but it also carries a dual meaning: to acknowledge our social and economic achievements as dedicated worker-bees.

At Vermont Woods Studios, we are no strangers to hard work. Our Vermont-American made furniture is born through the diligent and tireless hands of our crafts people. The Stonehurst staff are happy to announce that in honor of the upcoming holiday, all of our furniture is 15% off.

As the last of the summer sun shines luminously on our Stonehurst studio, we will be here and ready to support you in finding the best piece of furniture to fit your needs. Come and take a reflective drive through Vermont to our peaceful space and find the perfect reward for your year of achievement.

Vermont Woods Studios is a company of real people with a real desire to furnish a greener world. As living, breathing humans we know that Labor Day is a prime-time for last hurrahs and picturesque cookouts with families and friends. Which is why our sale will start on September 4th and go through September 10th.

Enjoy this holiday, you earned it. When it’s all said and done and none of us can deny the vibrant fall that awaits us, the sale will still be here, waiting to connect you to what you deserve.

*Copeland, Barnwood, Artisan, Clearance, Home Decor, In-stock and POLYWOOD  are not included in this sale.

$1000 minimum order for discount

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?

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.

Getting Organized with Custom Bookcases

Custom bookcases might not be on the top of your Christmas list, but think about it.  Whether you have a home office or you’re trying to tidy up and organize your books and media, custom bookcases could make your life easier and more efficient in 2013.  Not to mention more beautiful.

At Vermont Woods Studios our biggest month for crafting bookcases and other organizers is January.  Could it have to do with New Year’s resolutions?  Must be, but we’re getting inquiries almost every day lately.  I think customers are realizing that there is a 1-3 month lead time for ordering custom bookcases.  So if you’re one of those people I thought I’d offer up some tips and advice about how to choose the right set of bookshelves for your home or office.

Glass Doors, Wooden Doors or No Doors

Are you really going to use those books or movies or vases?  Or will they just sit in the bookcase and collect dust?  Are they beautiful?  Part of your decor?  Or just obligatory (someone gave them to you and you can’t seem to throw them away) and you don’t necessarily want to see them?  Do you put things back neatly?  Or are you always in a hurry?  These are the kinds of weighty issues you’ll need to unravel before you decide whether or not to add doors to your custom bookcases.  Oh… and should the doors be glass to show off your chotskies or wooden to hide the mess?

Custom Bookcases, Bookshelves, Glass Doors, Wood Doors, No Doors

Custom bookcases might not be on the top of your Christmas list. But whether you have a home office or you’re trying to tidy up and organize your books and media, custom bookcases could make your life easier and more efficient in 2013. Learn more and shop for solid wood bookcases with full length glass doors, half length glass doors, full length wooden doors, half length wooden doors or no doors on our website.

One Big Bookshelf or a Couple Small Ones?

Once you’ve decided what kind of doors are best for your bookshelves, you’ll want to measure your space and get the cabinets to fit perfectly into it.  Some people love the integrated design of one big bookcase unit like the Modern Shaker Home Office Center Cabinet above (make sure you can fit something this big up the stairs and into your room!).  Other people like the versatility of combining several small bookcases in different ways.  One thing we always mention to customers is: if you’re getting a series of bookcases that you may want to place flush up next to each other, be sure you specify “no overhang”.  That means any molding along the top will be eliminated either on one or both sides, depending on how you want to configure the bookcases.

Measure Twice and Cut Once

We try to make it easy to customize your bookcase online, but it really is a good idea to give us a call or stop by the showroom to order custom bookcases, especially if they’re over-sized or designed to sit flush against each other.  We’ll help you get all the measurements right for your space so they’ll be no surprises when your furniture arrives.
