New Vermont Tavern Bench

July 19th, 2013 by Kelsey Eaton

Farmhouse Bench | Vermont Tavern Style | Cherry Wood Top | Black Painted Base

Part of our new signature collection, the Vermont Tavern Bench has a solid cherry wood top and a black painted base with turned legs.  Handcrafted as a companion to the Vermont Tavern Table, the style is a classic English tavern table with William and Mary design elements.  Shown in our recently renovated Stonehurst fine furniture gallery.

This farmhouse style Vermont Tavern Bench is part of a new line of furniture we’re making.  It’s a unique signature collection, available only at Vermont Woods Studios.   Traditionally crafted, this 2-tone bench features a 1 inch thick solid cherry wood seat, with a durable maple wood base painted with black lacquer.

Vermont farmhouse furniture is adapted from William and Mary style furniture that was popular in England around 1700 after the reign of King William and Queen Mary.  These pieces are reproductions of the classic English tavern table and bench you’ll see in inns throughout the UK and New England (a few of Southern Vermont’s favorites are the Grafton Inn, Ye Olde Tavern, The Hermitage Inn).

Our Farmhouse Style Vermont Tavern Bench features a 2-tone design with a 1 inch thick solid cherry wood seat, and a durable maple wood, turned leg base painted with black lacquer. 

Besides being a durable, heirloom piece– the Vermont Tavern Bench is sleek and stylish.  The contrast between the traditional Cherry wood and the deep black lacquer base creates a truly unique piece that would make a great furniture addition for anyone looking to add a little flair to their dining area.  Stop by our fine furniture showroom at Stonehurst and check it out!
