Reintroducing The Brandon Collection: A Classic Cherry Bedroom Furniture Set

April 10th, 2014 by Kelsey Eaton

Our newest Cherry Wood Bedroom Furniture Collection

If you’re looking for cherry wood bedroom furniture that has the sleekness of modern furniture combined with a feeling of comfortable elegance, The Brandon Collection is the collection for you.

The Brandon Collection, our newest cherry bedroom furniture suite comes out of a family-run Vermont workshop that has been in the woodcraft industry for over 40 years. Brandon’s clean lines, gentle curves and timeless elegance are best described as transitional styling.

The centerpiece of the suite is the Brandon Panel Bed which is available in 4 sizes with a low or high footboard. Perfectly matching nightstands with one, two or three drawers are available as well as 7 configurations of chests and dressers making this suite easy to fit your storage needs and bedroom space.

All of the pieces in this collection are traditionally crafted using sustainable harvested American Black Cherry and available in natural cherry or one of 6 stains. Topped with a super durable, low maintenance lacquer finish and backed by our lifetime guarantee.

The high quality craftsmanship in addition to the eternal chicness of this collection ensures that it will be a worthy heirloom piece.

Love this furniture collection as much as we do? Start with the bed!

Begin your journey into cherry bedroom furniture bliss with the centerpiece, the bed! The bed is important because A) its big and demands the attention of your space and B) you spend more time in your bed than you do using any of the accompanying pieces. The Brandon bed comes in four sizes, so after choosing the right one for you, feel free to browse through a variety of perfectly matching storage pieces to accent your new bed.

Choosing your Complementary Furniture Pieces:

Cherry Night stands: When choosing a night stand, you should consider both style and necessity. Do you need a lot of storage for small items at your bedside? Perhaps your glasses, journal, pens, etc? If so, consider a nightstand with multiple drawers.


Brandon legs, frame & panel sides are formed into a graceful curve to meet up with a curved top creating a sweeping and elegant form. The two &  three-drawer Cherry nightstands offer maximum storage and are a perfect match for our Brandon Modern Bed. The one drawer night stand is great if you have minimal need for storage of small items, but love to read in bed and want a nice place to keep your favorite books.

Cherry Dressers:  This is a very important part of piecing together your bedroom! But we make it easy. The Brandon Collection includes two beautifully handcrafted dressers that are built to last and have enough drawers to share space with your spouse. But don’t feel bad for being greedy– I’d want a cherry dresser of my own too! ;)


The eight & six Drawer Brandon Cherry Dressers feature precision English dovetail drawer construction with 100 lb rated, under-mounted metal drawer guides which ensure quiet and smooth operation. These solid wood dressers are available in Natural Cherry or choose from 6 hand wiped stain colors. Top coated with an ultra durable, water resistant lacquer finish. Both options offer optimum storage, but if you’re someone who practically hoards your clothes (like me) or if you have to share with your partner, the eight drawer dresser might be best for you!

Hardwood Cherry Chests: If the Brandon dressers aren’t enough storage for your space, these handcrafted chests are a great addition!  Store your favorite or most delicate clothing items– or just use it to store your socks! Whatever you choose to use it for, the five drawer & six drawer cherry chests are superior quality and will surely be the perfect finishing piece to your Brandon collection.


Choosing the perfect finish for your Cherry Wood Bedroom Furniture

No matter your style, whether traditional or highly dramatic, we have the perfect stain for your cherry bedroom furniture. The Brandon Collection is available in natural cherry or in the following stains: (stains applied over natural cherry)

The Brandon Collection is an excellent choice for the subtly modern furniture lover. With a variety of options for size, storage, and stains– this Vermont handcrafted cherry bedroom furniture collection is customizable enough to fit your unique room style. Feel free to contact one of our friendly staff members if you have any questions about the Brandon Collection!

Tips For Customizing Bedroom Furniture

October 28th, 2013 by Peggy Farabaugh

Custom Bedroom Furniture | Made in Vermont of Real Solid Hardwoods

Much of the bedroom furniture purchased here at Vermont Woods Studios is customized to meet specific style or dimensional criteria specified by our customers.  Contrary to popular belief, custom bedroom furniture can be surprisingly affordable!  Over the coming weeks I’ll share our Top 5 Tips for customizing hardwood furniture.

Here’s my #1 Tip and it applies to bedroom chests, dressers, armoires and night stands as well as any other case goods that have doors or drawers:

Change the Drawer Pull

It sounds like a small change but it’s the quickest and easiest way to get a custom look for your furniture.  Of course with some dressers and chests, the pulls are an integral part of the overall design.  Our Cherry Moon and Modern American collections would be an example of this and you wouldn’t want to change pulls.

But many interior designers are taking a fresh look at Shaker and Mission style furniture and saying, “hey I can jazz this up and create a whole new style by changing the pulls.”  You can find a variety of different pulls on our website and in our showroom at Stonehurst.  Each of our independent workshops carries their own collection of pulls so if you’re ordering online you’ll want to give us a call to make sure we can match a given pull with the chest or dresser you’re interested in.  You can also send us your own pulls and we’ll install them!

Drawer pulls can customize your furniture quickly and easily

A few different options for drawer pulls are displayed in our Stonehurst fine furniture showroom.  Pick one or send us your own unique pulls to customize you bedroom furniture quickly and easily.

Stay tuned for more tips on how to customize your bedroom furniture easily and affordably.  Next up: combining two contrasting wood tones (like maple and cherry) into a single piece.


New Hampshire Furniture Maker Ventures into the Woods

September 7th, 2013 by Peggy Farabaugh

New Hampshire Furniture Makers | Fine Craftsmanship | New England Beds, Chests, Dressers

Today we welcome a New Hampshire furniture maker into our circle of independent woodworkers at Vermont Woods Studios. Peter’s workshop is just across the border and his family has been making fine furniture for 6 generations. We’re excited to make it available to you at Stonehurst, and in our online fine furniture gallery.

We’ve been showcasing exclusively Vermont made fine furniture for nearly 8 years. We’re very proud to be a part of the 200+ year old tradition Vermont’s craftspeople have earned. But a number of prestigious and talented craftsmen from beyond our Green Mountain borders have been asking to join the Vermont Woods Studios network of independent furniture makers. At the same time, our customer base is growing faster than our capacity within Vermont. So what do you think we should do?

Thus far we’ve declined to expand outside of Vermont. But in the last couple years we’ve been getting quite close to the craftspeople at a certain New Hampshire workshop that’s just a short distance across the state line. After much discussion we’ve made a decision to bring Peter and his group of talented craftsmen into our circle of fine woodworkers. Peter’s family has been making New England furniture for 6 generations– creating each piece of furniture one at a time and paying close attention to the details our customers look for. We are excited to bring them on board and looking forward to your feedback on their work.

Style-wise, you might call Peter’s Brandon furniture “transitional” as it blends traditional Shaker style with modern curves. The Brandon bed is shown above in natural solid cherry wood, although it’s also available in maple and walnut. Three choices of matching nightstands are available, as well as a 10 Drawer Dresser and a Gent’s Chest — all available in natural cherry, maple or walnut wood.

The Brandon bedroom set is the first New Hampshire furniture collection we’ve added and you will soon be able to see it showcased at Stonehurst. Stop by and let us know what you think or send us a comment on Facebook. Look for more fine furniture from New Hampshire coming in the next few weeks!

American Made Bedroom Furniture Sale: Price + Value

April 14th, 2013 by Peggy Farabaugh

American Made Bedroom Furniture Sale

100% American Made Bedroom Furniture is on sale this week at Vermont Woods Studios.  We work hard to deliver the best price and value in our furniture so everyone involved in the purchase has a win:  the customer, the craftsman, the forester and logger who sustainably harvest the wood and of course, the environment.

American Made Bedroom Furniture

Our American made bedroom furniture sale wraps up at midnight this Thursday, April 18th with up to 20% savings on real, handcrafted wooden furniture made right here in Vermont.  I know you’re used to seeing bedroom furniture sales that advertise 40 or 60 or 80% off when you’re shopping at the big box stores but those companies have to mark up everyday prices in order to mark down for sales.  We don’t like that kind of gimmick.

Value is About More Than Price

At Vermont Woods Studios we work very hard to price our furniture accurately and make sure that everyone involved in the purchase has a win:  the customer, the craftsman, the forester and logger who sustainably harvest the wood and of course, the environment.   We realize that in the age of the Internet, price comparison often rules above all else.  So we have  a competitive pricing policy to ensure you get the best price available for the quality, shipping and service we offer.  And we guarantee our  100% American made furniture for a lifetime of service to you and your family.

When you place a piece of our Vermont made furniture in your home we want you to feel good knowing that you have paid a fair price and obtained a great value.   You can see customer comments about price and value as well as customer photos of our furniture on Facebook or in our testimonials page.  Want to join the conversation?  Comment below, on our Facebook or call Sean (who is– according to Liz–our Customer Feedback Czar) and weigh in with your two cents!


Dominion Bedroom Furniture: The Week’s Best Seller

March 7th, 2013 by Peggy Farabaugh

Bedroom Furniture by Copeland | Dominion Collection | American Made

Copeland’s Dominion Bedroom Furniture set was our best seller last week. Think maybe it’s because this picture is so cheerful?  Who wouldn’t want their bedroom to look like this, especially when coming out of a long winter — heading into Spring.

Copeland’s Dominion bedroom furniture set was our best seller last week.  I love this picture, but the cool thing about Dominion is that you can customize it online to look exactly like this (above) or give it a totally different style. The photo above shows this high end bedroom set in natural cherry wood, although you can change the color online and add one of 3  stains:  cognac cherry, saddle cherry or smoke cherry.  For example, here’s a photo of the same Dominion bedroom in saddle cherry, which is darker than natural cherry and looks similar to walnut wood.


Copeland Dominion Bedroom Furniture

You can modify Copeland’s Dominion chests with different style tops and drawer pulls.  Customize any dresser, chest or night stand to fit in with your existing Shaker style or modern contemporary bedroom furniture.

You can also customize the Dominion bedroom set by changing the shape of the top of each chest or dresser.  In the photo above the chest on the left has a top that’s flush with the sides of the case, whereas the chest on the right has an over-hanging top.  It creates a whole different look!

Furthermore, if you choose small, round mushroom shaped drawer pulls along with the flush top (shown left), you’ve got a variation of traditional Shaker style furniture.  But by selecting brushed nickle bars for drawer pulls and pairing them with the over-hanging top, you’ve created a much different, modern contemporary look for the same chest.

Dominion beds are also highly customizable.  Copeland offers 4 main bed styles: the regular Dominion Bed (with choice of 4 different headboards), a storage bed version of it, the Dominion Bed with Leather Headboard (choose ebony, coffee or white colored leather) and a storage bed version of it.

Check it out!  This is your chance to design your own bedroom furniture and have it handcrafted especially for you, by Vermont craftsmen.  Copeland furniture is affordable too and offers a great value for your money, plus we guarantee it for a lifetime.  So what are you waiting for?
