When Versatility, Functionality and Simplicity Come Together the Result Can Be Beautiful.

Living in what I consider a “Tiny House” (900 sq ft), I’ve come to appreciate furniture that both serves its functional purpose and offers added bonuses (space saving or storage). I like pieces that are simple in design and neutral in style. I use artwork, paint and home decor to tie my personality into each room’s theme.

One space I’ve never really focused on is my dining space. I’m always on the go so when I have time to sit down and eat my meal at the kitchen table, I often have my laptop in front of me and my phone next to me. I don’t take the time to appreciate the space.

As we’ve rolled out our Holiday Dining Furniture Sale, I’ve been thinking more and more about my dining space and how it needs more of my attention. Through my time working on the current sale, I came across our Classic Shaker Dining Tables and found the table I never knew I was missing: the Classic Shaker Square Dining Table.

I love the simplicity of its design. The tapered legs give it an airy feeling and the design allows it to fit into almost any space. I can already imagine myself enjoying meals at it and decorating it with flowers and candle centerpieces.

Not wanting to forfeit more square footage than necessary, I love that it comes with different size options from 30 x 30 (perfect for me) up to 60 x 60 (for someone with more space to host). Offering versatility it comes with either a solid or extension top and comes with an array of Finish options. You can also choose from beveled or eased edges on the table top.

If you’re not as excited about squares as I am, or if you want a little more fluidity from the design, the table comes with round table top options and flared leg options.

For a chair pairing, I gravitate towards the traditional Windsor Style chairs, in particular the Windsor-Style Guest Chairs. The style is classic and the spindle back gives it an open and light feeling.

If you have more space to work with and are not looking for a square or round table, you might be interested in our Classic Shaker Dining Table. It evokes the same sense of style but is rectangular and is available in sizes from 30 x 48 to 48 x 108.

Working with a small space can be tricky, but here at Vermont Woods Studios we do have options for you. You don’t need to compromise your style because of the size of your space.

During our Holiday Dining Room Furniture Sale, you can save on these tables, chairs and more! Save 10% off one piece, 15% off two pieces and 20% off three or more pieces.

Our friendly sales team is always here to assist you with any questions you may have. You can call us toll free at 888-390-5571 or visit us at our Vernon, VT Showroom.

Cherry Dining Furniture | Customer Review
Thanks to Jeff F in Alaska for sending this photo and review of his new Vermont made dining set.

Perhaps the most rewarding part of our fine furniture business (or any business, I would imagine) is when a customer becomes a friend.  This is a story about a friendship that developed between our staff and a family who lives in Alaska.

The truth is… the process of ordering handcrafted, made to order furniture is a (relatively) long one.  Sometimes it takes 8 weeks or more for crafting a dining room set.  After that shipping can take a couple additional weeks (depending on a customer’s distance from our workshops in Vermont) because “faster is not always better” when it comes to moving fine furniture.

So during this period we get to know our customers pretty well.  We communicate back and forth regularly about our progress and about the schedule and logistics for delivery.   Occasionally our conversations about logistics include personal details and once in a while this leads to a special friendship which develops unexpectedly.  Such was the case with the family of Jeff F who recently sent us this kind note:

We recently purchased a dining room table and chairs from Vermont Woods Studios. We looked around before we made our selection, both online and in local stores. Although we had not made a purchase previously from Vermont Woods Studios, we made a leap of faith and ordered from them, as they seemed to offer the materials, design, and craftsmanship we were looking for. 

It’s not often these days that people exceed your expectations, but ours were exceeded in all respects. The staff at Vermont Woods Studios was informative, knowledgeable, and responsive. Communications, estimated ship dates, and follow up all were timely and accurate. When the furniture pieces arrived, they were just as we had hoped. Each piece was extremely well-crafted. Joints were flawless. The cherry wood was gorgeous and the grain was very well-matched. The finish was nearly luminescent.

We found the people at Vermont Woods Studios wonderful to work with, and our experience could not have been more positive. They went out of their way to help and accommodate us at every turn. We have recommended them to friends without any hesitation, and I’m certain that we’ll be ordering additional pieces of furniture for our home.”–Jeff F.

Thanks, Jeff.  Your letter made our day and reminded us what our jobs are all about.  Cheers– to many happy moments shared together around your Vermont made dining furniture!
