Looking for the best fine furniture sale this Cyber Monday? We polled our customers to find out what topped their wish list in fine furniture sales this year. The Top 5 Fine Furniture Features are listed below. Naturally we’ve put them all on sale! We’re offering a full 20% off* (plus free shipping) which is our best discount and lowest price ever. So if you’re finally ready to invest in the fine furniture you’ve always dreamed of, take a serious look. All of our real wood furniture is 100% American made, built to order right here in Vermont and guaranteed for a lifetime of service to your family.
Our customers’ favorite Vermont made Craftsman Style Furniture is the Cherry Moon Collection. It’s contemporary Asian design has a light but grounded appearance. Reverse-tapered legs, posts and an intricate cove under the tops round out the design to give any room a comforting and natural feeling. Rich black walnut, half-moon drawer pulls complete the design of these natural cherry, maple, and walnut hardwood pieces.
Traditionally mission style furniture is characterized by rectilinear design, simple, straight construction, heavy proportion and exposed joinery. It’s typically made with oak wood and given a medium or dark stain. Drawer pulls are often simple round brass rings or rectangular back plates of solid brass with canted corners and an oval bail handle. But today’s Vermont made mission style furniture incorporates modern contemporary design features and is often crafted of cherry, walnut and maple wood. You can customize it online to get whichever traditional and contemporary features you like.
Vermont craftspeople have mastered the art of simple elegance in their many variations of American Shaker style furniture, ranging from a strict interpretation of the original Shaker pieces to creative versions with modern functionalities, curves and hardware. Simple aesthetics and sturdy design remain at the heart of today’s Vermont Shaker style furniture.
Natural Cherry Wood is a favorite among our customers as it develops a lustrous, rich reddish brown patina over the years. Premium quality real cherry wood furniture is hard to find and often imitated (poorly) so don’t be fooled by the imports sporting cherry trade names. Vermont is well established as the “go to” place to purchase real natural cherry wood furniture.
American Black Walnut Wood is the only really dark North American wood. Like cherry it’s a prized, premium hardwood that carries a commensurate price tag. Vermont woodworkers are specialists in black walnut furniture, handcrafting it from top quality solid walnut wood.
So there you have it, our customer’s Top 5 Fine Furniture Sale categories for Cyber Monday 2013. Is there something here for you? Let us know what you’re shopping for this Cyber Monday on our Facebook.
