Every day, multiple times a day, we sit down to eat a meal. Most people do not eat lunch at home, but lunch aside, you probably eat breakfast and dinner at home. Where in your house do you eat these meals? Do you sit at the table? Eat over the counter? Sit in front of a TV? An increasing amount of articles, which you can read here, here and here, state that those who eat in front of the TV are more likely to be obese.
You may be wondering, “why is a furniture retailer writing about the correlation between TV watching and obesity?” Let me make the connection for you: we sell dining furniture. It’s time to break that habit of sitting on the couch to eat dinner. Perhaps a new solid wood table and hardwood dining chairs would be an incentive to start having meals in your kitchen or dining room again.
Our dining room furniture is available in a variety of designs, shapes, and wood types, so there is something in our online gallery to fit any home’s style. All of our pieces of dining furniture are crafted in Vermont using sustainably harvested hardwoods. Each piece is built to order, so you can customize the piece to fit your needs. Whether you’re just looking for a small table to fit in the corner of your kitchen, or you’re looking for an extension table so you can host the next family holiday, our craftsmen can craft what you need.
Right now all of our dining room furniture is on sale! This is a buy more, save more sales event. Take 10% off one piece, 15% off two pieces, and 20% off three or more! It’s easy to earn the 20% off discount with this sale; a solid wood table and two dining chairs would do the trick! Plus, all of our dining furniture is backed by a lifetime guarantee.
Browse our online gallery (not while you’re eating, we hear that’s linked to obesity too) for your new hardwood dining furniture. If you have any questions for our fine furniture specialists, feel free to contact them.

What do our best selling pieces have in common? They’re all Shaker style! For every room in the house, our Shaker furniture pieces always come out on top. Our Shaker style furniture ranges from traditional styles featuring elegant straight lines to more modern shaker furniture that incorporate contemporary round lines into the design. Shaker furniture has been made since the 1700′s, and our craftsmen have dedicated themselves to keep the same simplistic, functional, and sturdy design in every piece of Shaker furniture they craft.
Our online gallery features almost 100 pieces of Shaker style bedroom pieces. Although it’s a close tie between pieces that are most popular, the Vermont Shaker Moon Bed is our best selling bed. The Vermont Shaker Moon Bed features traditional tapered legs and gorgeous arching curves in the headboard and footboard. Like most pieces of Shaker furniture, this bed is most popular in natural cherry wood.
It’s easy to see why the Vermont Made Shaker Custom Dining Table is most popular among our customers. It is simple in design, sturdily built for years of use, and is built to order so it can perfectly match your kitchen or dining room. Like it says in it’s name, this dining table is customizable. What does that mean? Customize your table size in 12 solid top sizes and 18 extension table sizes. Customize your table top shape to be rectangular, oval or boat shaped. Customize your table in natural cherry, maple or walnut wood.
Shaker furniture, renowned for it’s sturdy design, is a perfect style for living room furniture. When putting your life collection of books or antique display plates on a bookshelf, it’s important to feel confident that it will remain sturdy. Our Shaker style hardwood bookcases are crafted to last a lifetime (guaranteed). They will remain strong for years to come, so you can feel certain that your precious belongings will be safe. Our most popular bookcase is the Vermont Shaker Bookcase. It is crafted in a small workshop near Vermont’s state capital, Montpelier, using sustainably harvested hardwoods with a non-toxic finish.
The Classic Shaker Writing Desk is our most popular piece of home office furniture. It is available in three distinct leg styles: flair (shown as the product’s main image), tapered or mission style. You can see these three styles by clicking the gray question mark next to the leg style option. Further customize this piece by choosing from three sizes, and three drawer options. This shaker style desk is a great option for a home office or business.
All of our Shaker style furniture is on sale! You can buy our best selling pieces at a great price. The more you buy, the more you save. Take 10% off one piece, 15% off two pieces, or 20% off three pieces. It’s the perfect excuse to buy a bed and nightstands; dining table and chairs; bookcase and end tables; or a desk with a few file cabinets. All of our furniture is handcrafted in Vermont with natural wood. Receive free shipping and a lifetime guarantee during this sale! Copeland Furniture is an exception to this Shaker furniture sale; however, the Copeland Sarah Shaker Collection is always priced with a low price guarantee.

Happy Birthday to President Washington, President Lincoln and all of our favorite American presidents! We celebrated Presidents Day yesterday at the local (and world famous) Harris Hill Ski Jump so today we’re back working with customers who are taking advantage of our Presidents Day Furniture Sale.
The beautiful Vermont made Shaker Moon Bed is our most popular item this week. It’s a classic Shaker style bed and it’s often vying for first place in our Best Seller line up with the Cherry Moon Bed. Both beds are handmade by a small group of craftspeople in a Montpelier workshop using real solid cherry wood that’s sustainably harvested. The beds feature an incredibly soft, hand-rubbed, natural linseed oil finish and they’re guaranteed for a lifetime.
Matching dressers, chests, mirrors and nigh stands are also available in the Vermont Made Shaker and Cherry Moon Bedroom Furniture collections and everything is on sale through tomorrow at midnight for 15% off.
Not needing bedroom furniture today? Our store wide Presidents Day Furniture sale offers the same 15% discount on almost* all our Vermont made furniture including Dining Furniture, Home Office Furniture and Living Room Furniture. Shop online or give us a call today.

Right now you may be preoccupied placing your Edible Arrangement order or making dinner reservations for Valentine’s Day, but some of the biggest sales events of the year are only a few days away. This Friday you will see all of the big ticket items on your wish list go on sale. Presidents Day is a retail holiday only second to Black Friday (which is 9 months away).
Traditionally, many Americans take advantage of these discounts to make larger purchases like new cars, electronics and furniture. This is the first time that retailers will offer discounts on their new lines and designs. As a consumer, one of the questions you may ask yourself before you make a big purchase is, “how long will this last?” or “how long will I have this?” For many of your purchases, like a new top of the line television with a surround sound system, the answer is probably less than 5 years. Technology is rapidly changing and these types of items become obsolete almost as soon as we buy them.
Unlike cars and electronics that have new versions come out every year, the functionality and durability of hardwood furniture has remained the same for over 200 years. We know there are a lot of items to choose from this Presidents Day, but furniture is different from your other options because it is crafted to last a lifetime- it’s guaranteed. Our online gallery features dozens of fine wood furniture collections and 100′s of pieces in a variety of timeless styles. Each piece is crafted to order, so you can customize your furniture in your choice of natural Cherry, Maple, Oak or Walnut wood. All of our furniture is 100% American made right here in Vermont.
During our Presidents Day Furniture Sale, you can save 15% storewide* plus free shipping! This is one of the deepest discounts that we can give our customers, so we only offer it a couple times a year. We are honoring this discount for 5 days only, but you can preview our bedroom, dining room, living room, and home office furniture by visiting our website today. Bookmark what you like ahead of time, receive the savings this weekend
If you have any questions about our Vermont made wood furniture, feel free to contact our fine furniture specialists. They are available by live chat, phone (888-390-5571), or by email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
*This storewide sale excludes Copeland, Polywood, Barnwood and Artisan Furniture

This is the time of year when the big box stores put all of their TVs and media consoles on sale in preparation for the big game: the Super Bowl. Now, I can’t argue that saving a few hundred dollars on a TV isn’t a good deal, because it is. However, buying that particle board TV stand is not a good deal. Because it is cheaply made in a factory, it is not durable enough to hold your beautiful new TV for years to come. In fact, it will probably only last long enough to use for your Super Bowl party. A solid wood media console is a better deal. It is more money upfront, but it will last for a lifetime of Super Bowl games.
All of our media consoles are carefully crafted in Vermont using sustainably harvested hardwoods. Our heirloom quality TV stands and media consoles are available in a variety of styles to perfectly match your home decor. Our minimalistic designs like the Cherry Moon Small TV-Media Console, Modern American TV-Media Stand, and our Modern Shaker Two Drawer Media Console are extremely popular right now. They are small enough to fit in any space, but have enough storage for your DVD player, TiVo, and cable box. Even if you decide to mount your new flatscreen TV on the wall, you will still need a space to hold the accessories.
Don’t worry about assembling a low-quality media console for the game. Use what you have for right now, and know that your dream TV stand is a few clicks away. Order now, sit back and enjoy the game. You won’t receive your new media console in time for the 2013 Super Bowl, because quality craftsmanship takes time. However, you will enjoy your heirloom quality, solid wood media console for a lifetime (guaranteed).
Order during our sale and save up to 20%* off real wood living room and home office furniture. We will ship your order for free, and it will be delivered right to your door; no hassles.

Storewide year-end sales are commonly associated with large clearance discounts because the products do not pass a necessary quality check. Another reason stores have sales at the end of the year is because they need to clear out their merchandise to make room for next year’s style.
The Vermont Woods Studios Winter Holiday Storewide Sale is a little different from your average year end sale. We are not putting our furniture on sale because they are “seconds.” From January 1 to December 31 each year, we sell heirloom quality wood furniture that is crafted to last for generations of use (backed by a lifetime guarantee). That being said, we also aren’t trying to make room in a warehouse for next years style. We actually don’t have a warehouse, because each piece of furniture you buy is crafted just for you! As for style, Vermont fine furniture is timeless. It is naturally beautiful, and will never go out of style.

Slimmed down technology is rapidly changing the sizing and functional needs of furniture. The rooms that are most impacted by this change is the living room and home office, because these rooms are home to most of our electronic devices.
When you trade in your large desktop computer for a sleek laptop, you will probably find yourself trading in your large computer armoire for a writing desk. Trading in your clunky old computer desk means that you can finally get rid of the cheap particle board desk! It’s time for you to treat yourself to real wood home office furniture. This furniture, unlike your electronics, will stay in style and will last forever.
Despite how small our electronics have become, we have found that people really enjoy having a little storage space in their real wood home office furniture- even if it’s just one small center drawer. We offer a variety of storage options with our home office furniture, because we know how much a difference it can make. If you like the new minimalist look of desks, a desktop organizer, or a hutch (shown in the image above) can be a great option. It provides you with enough space to hide away your chargers and cords, but doesn’t take up too much additional space. Small wood filing cabinets are another option for storage in your home office. Our two-drawer filing cabinets are small enough that they can nest right under your desk.
It is common for a contemporary living room to have a flat screen TV mounted on the wall, or set on a small media console. This cuts down on the space we use in our living rooms, allowing more space for a nice rocking chair. Similarly to the home office, our new electronic devices assist our decisions in furniture. Many people are looking for a small, simple wood media console that holds their cable box, Blu-Ray player, and sound system. In our online gallery you will find a variety of media consoles that store these devices in a number of ways. Some of our tv stands have glass doors to display the contents. Others have solid wood doors, so you don’t have to worry about keeping your cords always look neat and organized. For those of you who still enjoy a large piece of furniture to use as a focal point, we have a variety of wood entertainment centers. Our entertainment centers offer more storage space for your living room.
With our Home Office & Living Room Sale, you can save up to 20% on your new, slimmed-down or traditional wood furniture. Start shopping our Vermont made furniture today. You can conveniently shop 24 hours a day from our online gallery. If you perfer to order by phone, or have any questions about our furniture, you can contact us at 888-390-5571. This sale ends on December 18th.
So, what do you think? Do you prefer traditional style home office and living room furniture, or the new minimalist designs? Share your thoughts in the comments section, or start a conversation on Facebook.
