With a new year comes new designs, fashions and ideas. Over the next few weeks, I’ll be cover different trends that we’ve seen coming up for this year. First up for your 2013 Interior Design Trends: furniture!
In 2013, I think we are going to see many furniture pieces featuring simple lines and functions, much like furniture of the mid 20th century. We’ll have many retro styles making a comeback, such as metal detailing, splayed leg designs and futuristic, modular furniture. Our Moduluxe, Astrid and Contemporary Cable collections are good starting points for this look.
Unique Artisan Designs
Sometimes the best trend is not following a trend at all. Creative, one-of-a-kind designs will be big this year as people start to “de-commercialize” their lives. Whether you’re going for a modern look or a simple shaker style, artisan work is the way to go. Give us a call to discuss some custom options for your home.
Whatever look you decide to go for, make it a green one. Sustainability is starting to become a consumer standard in most industries, including food and fiber, and furniture is no different. Choose pieces that are made from sustained, American forests rather than endangered rainforest lumber. Learn more abut our sustainability standard and what we do to protect our rainforests.

Isn't that a cool name for a blog? Rebecca is our new graphic designer at Vermont Woods Studios, but we've also discovered that she's a very engaging writer. Such a multi-talented person she is!
She's so fascinated by the behind the scenes world of custom furniture making that she's decided to blog about it and share the scoop with you.
Why Get in the Milkcrate? Well, it's an old Vermont saying that means get onboard, we're ready to go! Rebecca was thinking of that every time she heard us pick up the phone and talk to customers about going green in their homes.
Are you interested in sustainable forestry and preservation of endangered species that live in the forest? Why don't you Get in the Milkcrate and ride with us to a greener planet?
