Custom-hardwood-bedroom-furniture

A customer purchased this Copeland Horizon bed over the weekend, but when he gets it, the bed will look very different. That's because he customized the finish and changed it from the dark chocolate stain shown to a natural maple color which is very light (see below).

Have you been looking everywhere for the perfect hardwood furniture to fit precisely into your dining rom or bedroom space?  If you're still coming up short, maybe think about customizing!

 

We had a customer purchase this Copeland Horizon bed over the weekend, but when he gets it, the bed is going to look very different than it does here.  That's because he customized the finish and changed it from the dark chocolate stain shown to a natural maple color which is very light. 

 

I love working with customers who have the vision (and courage!) to imagine how customized furniture will look in their homes.  Maybe he'll send us a photo once it's installed in his bedroom so I can share it with you.  I hope so.

 

 

 

Custom-hardwood-furniture

The Horizon bed above is made of solid maple hardwood and can be customized in 8 of these finish colors: natural maple (no stain) or white maple, cocoa maple, dark chocolate
maple, dark honey maple, chestnut maple, black maple or slate maple.

 

At Vermont Woods Studios we customize furniture routinely.  Customization can be as straight-forward as changing the stain or substituting different drawer pulls.  Or it can be substantial for instance modifying  dimensions, leg style, configuration of drawers-doors, adding inlays and more.

We've tried to build our fine furniture website so you can use pull-down menus to see possibilities and prices for popular customizations. 

What many people don't realize is that customizations are often free!  Or in this case, it was two hundred dollars less to customize the bed in natural maple, as opposed to having the dark stain.

So if you're still searching for that custom dining set or bedroom set for your home, check out our furniture at Vermont Woods Studios and give us a call to see how easy it can be customized to meet your needs.

Furniture-from-Vermonts-Forests

"From Vermont's Forests" debuts today at Frog Hollow Gallery in Burlington, VT

Today "From Vermont's Forests" debuts at Frog Hollow Gallery in Burlington, VT.  It's a group exhibit by 14 members of the Guild of Vermont Furniture Makers.  These artisans have created furniture using lumber from Vermont forests for inspiration and I know you will love it!

Believe it or not, there are more than 50 species of trees growing in Vermont's green mountains.  The Guild's exhibit will demonstrate the beauty of this local harvest and the creative designs that grow from it.

You can catch them all at Frog Hollow during the entire month of June and/or visit them individually in the artisan's workshops (here is a map).  Here's a sneak peek of what's available now or talk to them about your own unique custom artisan piece– an investment that will carry your legacy forward, through many generations of your family.

The Guild of Vermont Furniture Makers is an association of master level furniture makers dedicated to the promotion of quality craftsmanship, excellence in design, and the pursuit of artistic vision. Their goal is to increase public awareness and appreciation of this time honored art.

The Copeland Berkeley Furniture Collection features Cherry and Walnut Wood in Custom 2 Tone Designs

Two Tone Wood Furniture

Americans are rediscovering Vermont made furniture.  Maybe the trend is due to recent awareness campaigns by the news media about how buying USA made goods stimulates the American economy. 

 

Or perhaps it's because the organic food movement is migrating into other aspects of our lives.  In addition to thinking about where our food comes from we're now beginning to think about where our furniture comes from.  And where our clothing, computers, appliances (you name it) come from.

Both the American-made and organic movements are reflected in the Vermont furniture brand.

But I think one of the main reasons Vermont made furniture is experiencing a renaissance is that it's customizable.  This Copeland Berkeley Bedroom Set is a good example.  The Berkeley Collection features a 2 tone cherry and walnut wood design that you can customize online with your favorite shade of cherry wood.

Many of our other Vermont made furniture collections offer 2 tone wood combinations, for example the Modern American Collection.  These bedroom, dining and home office furniture sets are shown in cherry and walnut but they can also be customized in any other 2 tone combinations of maple, walnut and cherry wood.

Most Vermont furniture makers embrace the idea of customizing your furniture, be it with two tone wood combinations, specialty sizing or complete custom design from the start.  Learn more about custom furniture options on our website.
