Hardwood bedroom furniture is one of Vermont’s specialties. The Green Mountain State has been famous for high quality, handcrafted wooden furniture for over 200 years and the tradition remains alive and well today. Our most popular hardwood is black cherry but Vermont craftspeople often work with sugar maple, black walnut, oak, ash and a number of other hardwoods as well.
The styles of Vermont made bedroom furniture are even more varied than the woods our craftspeople work with. Above you’ll see a couple examples of Shaker, Arts and Crafts, Modern, Contemporary and Mid-Century Modern (MCM) style furniture. From top left they are:
This is a traditional, handmade bedroom set crafted out of solid black cherry wood. It features straight lines that are clean, simple and elegant. Perfect proportions, carefully-selected extra-wide boards, tapered posts and legs, straight aprons with top and bottom cove moldings and traditional, chamfered edges, round button Shaker knobs yield a delicate appearance that belies their sturdy construction.
Fusing Arts & Crafts and Asian design, Copeland’s Berkeley Bedroom is both sophisticated and practical with under bed storage design that elegantly saves space in the upscale urban home. Crafted in natural cherry hardwood with American black walnut accents.
This high end, ultra-modern, Astrid Bedroom Furniture Collection by Copeland is always on sale at our Vermont Fine Furniture Store. Crafted in maple, cherry or walnut hardwood and made to order, you may customize it with your choice of five finishes and a variety of knob or pull options.
And on the bottom row from left:
Mid century, modern, 1950s American design is what the Copeland Catalina bedroom and home office furniture collection is all about. Handcrafted in Vermont and made to order, in natural solid black walnut or maple hardwood. Customize with your choice of finish and a variety of knob or pull options.
Our Contemporary Cable Collection blends elegant craftsmanship and contemporary, industrial flair to create a distinctive design that will transform any bedroom. Pieces in this modern craftsman style collection feature solid hardwood construction, traditional joinery and unique cable style drawer pulls. An eco-friendly, non-toxic, handrubbed oil finish tops off the artistry of this design.
Our Vermont Shaker furniture (above) is a sister collection to this one, with the main difference being a straight apron in contrast to the arched apron of the American Shaker Collection.
