Cherry-bedroom-sets-copeland-astridManjula, Kendall and Loryn have been working very hard this week on making it easier for you to shop for all solid wood bedroom sets.  Check out this ultra-modern Astrid Cherry Bedroom Set page they've recently finished.  It's a contemporary Copeland Furniture creation, made right here in Vermont of course, and crafted from all real solid cherry wood.

We've had Copeland's entire collection up since the start of 2012 but customers were looking for an easier way to build bedroom sets and compare pricing for different combinations of chests, dressers, beds, night stands and mirrors.  Now you can use the drop-down menus on this sets page to price out dozens of options for your Astrid Bedroom Set.  

I'm looking for feedback to see if this kind of presentation is helpful to you.  Let us know in the comments section below or on our Facebook.  Thanks!

Walnut-slab-table

A thick, organic slab table handmade by Dan Mosheim of solid, claro walnut wood.  The end grain and live edges are characteristics of the real thing.

 

Walnut furniture has been one of our best sellers this year, in spite of the fact that there is a 10-30% premium on the wood.  Walnut wood is becoming rare (due to a disease called Thousand Cankers) so we are super careful about making sure ours is sustainably harvested from forests where re-planting is well managed. 

 

We use a couple different types of American walnut wood for our furniture. 

 

For thick, organic slab tables we often use claro walnut wood from huge old (up to 100 years) shade trees that have been taken down (usually from city streets) because of safety reasons.  These slabs typically have beautiful, interesting character resulting from things like burls and branches. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Solid-walnut-furniture

The modern Copeland SoHo walnut dresser-chest. Handmade from real solid walnut wood.

For modern looking furniture, customers generally do not want "character wood" so we use younger walnut trees with straight grain patterns grown in managed forests in the mid-west (since walnut doesn't grow well in Vermont).  This is the contemporary SoHo walnut 4 drawer chest, made by Copeland Furniture with solid, walnut wood.

 

Whether you're shopping for organic, walnut slab tables or Modern walnut furniture, it's important to verify that you are indeed getting real, solid walnut wood, as opposed to cheaper woods that have been stained dark to look like walnut.  Be sure to ask your salesperson to confirm the wood type and its origin before you buy.  Ask if the furniture has been made from solid walnut wood or walnut veneers.

Learn more about walnut wood and see photos of beautiful walnut furniture on our website.  If you take the time to find real solid walnut furniture as opposed to what most stores call "walnut" you'll probably have that furniture for a lifetime.  Enjoy it!

Copeland-storage-beds

Copeland's Horizon Modern Storage Bed features four sturdy drawers and an optional bench-footboard.  The night stand is designed to allow room to pull the drawers out.  Bed is shown in a dark chocolate stain.  It's also available in natural maple or maple with light colored stains.

Our friends at Copeland Furniture in Bradford, Vermont have come out with what I think is America's best selection of storage beds.  Apparently our customers agree because these platform beds with under-bed storage were our best sellers last week.

Perfect for apartment or condo living Copeland's modern beds are designed for both comfort and style.  This one, the Horizon Bed is shown in a dark chocolate stain over maple wood although several lighter stain colors are also available. 

Each piece in the Horizon bedroom furniture collection is handmade in Vermont with solid, sustainably harvested maple wood and carries our Vermont Woods Studios Lifetime Guarantee.

Copeland offers several other storage bed designs including the Berkeley Storage Bed, the Monterey Storage Bed, the Dominion Storage Bed and the Harbor Island Storage Bed.  These American made platform beds literally do the heavy lifting when it comes to under-bed storage and customers appreciate the high quality and craftsmanship that's become synonymous with Copeland Furniture's brand.  We think you will too!

Desk-home-office-l-corner

Copeland's Berkeley Desk is handmade in Vermont of solid cherry wood.  It can be ordered with or without the organizer & Return.  A versatile corner workstation with plenty of room to spread out and strategize about your future.

When I started Vermont Woods Studios Fine Furniture I was working out of my home office and seven years later I still spend a good part of my workday here.  So I'm always interested to see what new furniture is coming out for home offices.

Copeland Furniture has recently brought out a couple new workstations:  the Sarah Modular Corner Desk with Rolling File and Return and the Berkeley Desk w/ Organizer & Return shown here.

These solid wood workstations are designed in an "L" shape to fit in a corner space but they are modular and versatile so you can change them around as your needs change.  I've seen the return desk used as a sofa table and it worked beautifully.

Check them out.  A handmade, solid wood workstation in your office upgrades the whole experience of working at home.
