BEEC Benefit Sale

 

BEEC Benefit Sale

Here at Vermont Woods Studios, we enjoy getting out of the office from time to time to work with our neighbors on good causes that help the community. We are involved with many nonprofit organizations to lend our support for projects promoting sustainable forestry and the protection of endangered forest species. One of those organizations is the Bonnyvale Environmental Educational Center (BEEC). That’s why we are holding a BEEC Benefit Sale this Friday, October 26th.

BEEC is a member-based non-profit organization founded in 1991 with the mission to develop a more ecologically informed citizenry through education and action in order to enhance and sustain the vitality of southern Vermont’s bioregion. BEEC organizes and leads many community-based environmental research and conservation programs, including watershed stewardship, reptile and amphibian conservation initiatives, and biodiversity planning and protection.

Patti Smith, Director of Conservation Initiatives and Public Programs for BEEC, organizes volunteers to brave cold, rainy nights every Spring in a passionate effort to protect, preserve and guide Vermont amphibians as they cross busy roads on their annual migration. In honor of her efforts, we named our Smith Natural Vermont Furniture Collection after her.

For tomorrow only, 10% of our overall sales will go to benefit the programs of the Bonnyvale Environmental Educational Center. By purchasing any of our handcrafted bedroom, dining room, living room and home office furniture, you will help to secure the future of BEEC initiatives for years to come. You can also rest assured that all of the furniture pieces you buy from us are crafted from sustainably harvested hardwoods right here in Vermont. We’ll even make the deal better by offering you our lifetime guarantee and free shipping.

Don’t forget, our American-made Bedroom Furniture Sale is still going on. Save up to 20% on all beds, nightstands, dressers, chests, armoires and mirrors. Buy as an American-made bedroom set and save even more. Or you can save big on our Patti Smith Natural Collection and support one of our favorite Vermont naturalists.

This benefit sale is for 10/26 only, but our bedroom sale ends Tuesday, October 30th

Contemporary Bedroom Furniture Trends

We just finished adding a new contemporary bedroom furniture collection to our website! It’s called the Contemporary Cable Collection. This beautiful contemporary bedroom furniture is paving the way for a brand new trend to break through the furniture industry: wood and metal. We have already begun to see this trend with tables (see our furniture fashion blog post about it), but this bedroom collection is the very first of it’s kind.

The Contemporary Cable Collection blends traditional Vermont style craftsmanship with an industrial flair to create an elegant, distinctive design. This collection includes five dressers, four chests, a night stand and a bed. Look at the drop down menu for the Contemporary Cable 10-Drawer Dresser #2, because we offer it in two different drawer configurations. The case pieces in this contemporary collection feature solid hardwood construction, traditional joinery and unique cable style drawer pulls. Each drawer also features recessed aluminum accent bars adding a sleek, modern look to the traditional wood case.

The Contemporary Cable Platform Bed uses stainless steel cable accents to add a contemporary touch. The stainless steel cable accents perfectly match the drawer pulls on the case pieces in this collection. Available in two headboard sizes, you can customize this bed to match your aesthetics. This bed is the best of both modern styling and traditional craftsmanship.

All of the bedroom pieces in the Contemporary Cable Collection are made in America and available in your choice of natural Cherry, Maple, and Walnut woods. An eco-friendly, non-toxic, handrubbed oil finish tops off the artistry of this design. All of the pieces in this collection are backed by our lifetime guarantee, and will be delivered with White Glove Shipping.

Visit our online gallery to browse our newest contemporary bedroom furniture.  Let us know on our Facebook page what you think about this new modern metal styling!

Finding the Best Value in Solid Wood Bedroom Furniture

Handmade, real solid wood bedroom sets are a significant investment so if you’re shopping for one, you’re no doubt looking for the best overall value in terms of quality and price.  Comparison shopping is hard work.  It takes days, weeks and even (for many of our customers) months to research all the design and style choices for fine hardwood bedroom furniture sets.

And the price comparisons can really get tricky.  Pricing can initially look like it’s all over the place but once you start to narrow down the level of quality you want you begin to see that, with high end, American made furniture, the pricing falls into a very narrow range.  That’s because there’s just not a lot of room for mark-up.  Handcrafting fine wood furniture takes extraordinary amounts of time to create and when that work is done here in America (which is probably important to if you made it to our blog) it needs to be compensated with a livable wage.

So when it comes to offering the best value for American made fine furniture, retailers like us (Vermont Woods Studios) have the greatest opportunity to save you money by being smart about the way we ship furniture (it turns out that shipping 3 or more pieces of furniture isn’t much more expensive than shipping one) and do our administrative work.  With our solid wood bedroom furniture sets we’ve focused on both and are able to discount these sets a full 20%.

Just so you know, this is the best price and lowest discount we’re able to offer at anytime, all year long.  While others might mark up to mark down by 70% or so routinely, we do not.  Our prices accurately reflect the cost of creating your furniture and getting it to you safely via the best fine furniture shipping specialist in the country.  So check out our solid wood bedroom sets today and let us know what you think on Facebook.  To find out what others are saying, check out our testimonials page and the Customer Review section of our blog.

VT-Style-Furniture I guess most people don't really think about where their furniture comes from. We do at Vermont Woods Studios Furniture, and we're pretty persnickety about it.

 

Sustainable forestry is a founding principle here and a major part of our mission.  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Deer-in-forestOur furniture is handcrafted of sustainably harvested solid wood, ie., the wood is harvested in America from local and regional forests that are professionally managed such that they will still be around for generations.

 

Why do we care? 

 

We actually got into this business as an offshoot of a non-profit I started 10 years ago, Kids Saving the Planet KSP.   It's a project designed to make environmental education fun and engaging.  I soon learned though, how difficult it is to secure funding for non-profits so I started to think about creating a business that would one day be able to significantly contribute to KSP.  Vermont Woods Studios is what evolved.  The common thread is sustainable forestry– what I feel is one of the top 3 most important environmental issues of our time.
