MiMo

Defining “Miami Modern”

Inspired by the Miami Modernist architecture movement of the mid-twentieth century, this style contrasted simple organic design with trendy materials. “It was a popular response to the various modernist and post world war architectural movements that were taking place in other parts of the world, adding glamour, fun, and material excess to otherwise stark, minimalist, and efficient styles. ” (1

Mission Style Bedroom Furniture

Mission Style Bedroom Furniture

Clean lines, simple ornamentation, and sturdy wooden frames are the primary distinguishable features of Mission Style Bedroom Furniture. This furniture style focuses on the inherent quality of the design, the natural  beauty of the materials, and a build that is made to last for generations.

In the early 1900s, Mission style furniture was created as a reaction to the industrial revolution and the ways in which it devalued the individual worker. The bold lines and sturdy, unadorned wooden base contrasted greatly against the frilly, ornate aesthetic of the  mass produced designs of the Victorian era.

Mission Style emphasizes simple horizontal and vertical lines and flat panels that accentuate the wood grain, and is most commonly crafted in Oak with a stain finish. There is little or no decoration, though the joinery is often given a darker stain to emphasize the expert construction.

While Mission Style furniture was created as a design movement that rejected low quality, mass produced pieces, eventually Mission style was mass produced just like its predecessors, and low-quality Mission furniture was soon found everywhere.

At Vermont Woods Studios, however, our Mission Style furniture is still built with the quality and integrity that Mission Style has long represented. A focus on real quality craftmanship, built by real expert Vermont artisans.

Why bring Mission Style Bedroom Furniture into your home?

As mentioned previously, Mission Style bedroom furniture is masterfully crafted to be sturdy, simple, and inherently striking. It’s perfect for a bedroom because (like all of our furniture) it’s built for a lifetime of use and if you like sleeping as much as I do, your bed gets a ton of wear over the years. You’re going to want something functional, simplistic, and built for real use.

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!
