Before & After
While the old vintage chairs are  charming, our Vermont made Shaker Style Ingrid dining chairs are sumptuous and chic.

We’re always happy to see the transformation of our customers homes. It’s exciting because there’s more to it than just the furniture. Seeing their progress reveals a little bit about their own story, and we’re flattered to be a part of that story!

The photos above show a before and after by our customer & new friend, Alice D. After falling in love with her Vermont Made Shaker Table, she decided to add our elegant Ingrid Cherry chairs. We love the way the new chairs have added a feeling of sophistication to the dining space. 

The Shaker Style Ingrid chair in Cherry Wood is a wonderful choice for anyone looking to make their dining space more chic and classy. It’s a modern take on traditional Shaker style furniture, as it uses the same balanced proportions and clean lines but modernizes it with the luxurious upholstery.

The chairs shown in the photo feature American Cherry hardwood with plush Celedon Microsuede fabric seating. Ingrid chairs have a comfortable open back, with the option for side or arm chair style. This chair style is designed to wear well, and the polyester fabric is durable enough to be used by your whole family.

As the centerpiece of the room, the handcrafted Custom Vermont Shaker Dining Table is one of our most popular dining tables. People love it because while its beautiful and luxurious looking, it’s meant to be used. You can feel comfortable seating your friends and family around it! It’s a highly customizable piece and can be built to fit practically any dining room size.

These hardwood cherry furniture pieces add style and sophistication to this already beautiful space. We’re so happy to be a part of it and look forward to seeing more transformation!

A Custom Dining Table for a Banquette | Handmade in Vermont
Recently Barbara K came to us looking for a custom banquette table for her kitchen. This type of customization is something we can do quite easily as every piece of our furniture is made to order.  Thanks for the photo, Barbara!

Handmade custom tables are a common request for the craftspeople at Vermont Woods Studios Fine Furniture.  Recently Barbara K came to us looking for custom banquette tables for her kitchen.  Banquette seating is custom built, usually into a corner, along a wall or in front of a window.  Depending on the design of the seating, the banquette table must be custom made too.  Over the years, we’ve had many requests to customize existing tables and make them a little taller, shorter, longer, wider and so on.  This type of customization is something we can do quite easily as every piece of our furniture is made to order.

Here’s an excerpt from Barbara’s feedback about her new dining table:

We just absolutely love our table. You were so nice to work with and the delivery men were just delightful. They made sure our table was level before they left.  We ordered the table because we needed a certain height for the banquette. Vermont Wood Studios was the only place we found that could give us this. We would definitely recommend you!!     Barbara K

If you’re searching for banquette tables and seating, have a look at these photos on Houzz, Better Homes and Gardens and Pinterest.  And if you need a custom banquette table, browse through our selection of made to order dining tables and give Liz a call to discuss dimensions and pricing.  Often we can customize tables like this for little or no extra charge.

Custom-walnut-slab-table Our friend David Allard and the talented furniture makers at Lyndon Furniture are always coming up with some new, exciting wood furniture design project.  Check out this huge custom walnut slab table they recently finished.  It's 13.5' long and the two planks in the top are made of 1 ¾" thick solid black walnut.

The legs are made of welded steel tubes that thread through the walnut slab top like through-tenons.  On the top, Dave left a gap between the 2 walnut slabs to allow for wood movement.  Believe it or not, even kiln-dried wood (like these walnut slabs) expands and contracts quite a bit with changes in humidity and temperature.

Such a simple elegant design, isn't it?  But as any amateur woodworker could attest, it's not one to try at home unless you've got the hand of a trained professional.  And a crane :)

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.

Vermont furniture makers offer custom tables in many styles and sizes, including farm tables, dining room tables, sofa tables, coffee tables, end tables and ultra luxury artisan designed custom tables.  If you don’t see exactly what you want, give us a call.  We’ll work with you to build a custom table that fits your style and budget.
