It may be time for a yard sale if your living room furniture hasn’t been updated since 1995.
Over the years it’s easy to amass furniture from many different places. Yard sales, inherited heirlooms, estate sales and children have all been the cause of mismatched furniture pieces in homes across America. Even if you have matching living room furniture, chances are it’s been in your home for a decade or two.
There’s a new metal shop in town and it’s popularity is red hot. These beautiful reclaimed wood and metal coffee tables are the result of a collaboration of three generations of the Mosheim family in Dorset, Vermont. We’ve been working with Dan Mosheim and his fine furniture studio for many years. He creates some of the most original and high quality furniture we’ve seen.
Earlier this year Dennis and I made a trip up to Dan’s shop to see his latest project. He and sons Will and Sam have teamed up to build a series of unique occasional tables. Dan and Will select and assemble reclaimed wood for the table tops, “toast it” with a torch to achieve rich color characteristics and hand-rub a clear, non-toxic durable finish to protect the wood. Sam custom fabricates the steel base in a new metal shop he and his dad recently built next to their furniture studio.
We’ve had inquiries about the tables from customers living everywhere from urban loft apartments to rural country homesteads. The artful design manages to add warmth and character to any space. Whether your style is rustic or refined you can enhance it by adding one of these unique, handcrafted reclaimed oak and metal coffee tables. Come have a look for yourself at Stonehurst, our fine furniture showroom and art gallery. And share your thoughts about wood and metal furniture designs on Facebook!
This week in our green interior design column, we’re talking about nesting tables. Earlier this year, House and Home magazine listed nesting tables and other small accent tables as a “must-have” in their 2012 Decorating Trends issue. Not only are nesting tables trendy and unique, but they’re also great for homes with limited space. Nesting tables allow you the versatility of having three separate tables while only taking up the space of one. These tables would be great to bring out during parties as floating tables for drinks or even as a tray for food. The possibilities are endless with these magic tables.
Here at Vermont Woods Studios, you can find nesting tables that do their job as convenient space-savers and, as an added bonus, they are environmentally friendly and made right here in Vermont.
Our New England Shaker Nesting Tables are traditional and simple, designed to match any home decor. With clean lines and dovetail joinery, these tables are meant to be displayed. With your purchase, you’ll receive 3 nesting tables in your choice of cherry. maple, oak or walnut woods. I’ll also point out that with our current sale (ending today!), you’ll be able to save up to 20%*.
If you’re looking for more of a modern twist on nesting tables, check out our Copeland Coonley Nesting End Tables. With two sleek nesting tables crafted in natural cherry wood, you’ll add twice the luxury and class to any room. Part of Copelands Frank Lloyd Wright Collection, these tables embody the styling of the modern architect.
Looking for a custom wooden table for your kitchen, dining room, hallway or living room? Did you know you can have a table custom made to order at the same price you would pay for a similar table out of a big box store or warehouse?
One of the advantages of buying a custom table is that you can tailor the dimensions to fit precisely into the space you’ve allotted in your home. Using the drop down menus on Vermont Woods Studios website, you can choose from nearly 80 different solid wood dining tables. Each table can be ordered in about 25 different sizes or you can call and order a unique custom size.
You can also customize the shape of your table top (rectangular, oval, boat, octagon), the shape and height of the table legs, the type of wood used, the finish, the edge profile and more. Want a drawer in the table top? How about a counter height table? Because each of our tables is made to order, it’s easy and affordable to customize them.
