valentine's-day
Happy Valentine’s Day! We hope you have someone who looks as longing at you as my dog son, Charlie, looks at this cake pop (don’t worry, I treated him to a few baby carrots for being such a good model).

Some may say the day doesn’t matter, but better to be safe than sorry!

Valentine’s Day may seem to most as a day Hallmark and floral shops depend on for their yearly survival. But, even if you don’t have that “special someone” to spend the day with, the idea of looking introspectively at who you consider a loved one and what you want out of those closest to you is a nice alternative way to commemorate the day.

Copeland Wave Collection
The Copeland Wave Collection in Parchment Maple

Riding The Sleep Waves

Picture this: You’re laying out in the sun at a beach. You’re the only person there. All you hear are the waves calmly crashing on the shore and the tall grass behind you shaking in the ocean breeze, maybe a distant sea bird cooing. The sun is warming you like a light blanket as you sway slowly in a hammock. You gently outstretch your fingertips and skim them through the warm, soft sand as you move.

Did you feel relaxed imagining that scene? And, are you someone who has trouble falling asleep at night? If you answered yes to the latter question then you’ve probably tried many different techniques to help get you to sleep. One strategy I use, is a technique in which you build a relaxing place in your mind until you fall asleep. Envisioning the beach scene as I described above always works for me!

Another way to help calm your mind is to create a relaxing bedroom environment. You’ve probably read design blogs that recommend soothing or muted wall colors, bedding free of busy designs and so on.

But have you thought about using your bedroom furniture as a way to create a calm and relaxing atmosphere for yourself?

Our new Copeland Wave Collection can help you do just that. The collection highlights a sleek, minimalist design that showcases innovative three dimensional carved faces on the case pieces and headboard of the beds. The carvings mimic the rippling effects of soft waves in water and are accentuated with metal hairpin legs or round tapered wood legs giving the contemporary design, an essence of mid century modern flair. The collection is handmade from maple hardwood and is available with two finish options.

Copeland Wave Collection
Wave 5-Drawer Chest, Wave Maple 1-Drawer Nightstand, Wave Maple Bed, 3-Drawer Chest and 6-Drawer Dresser all in Parchment Maple

Taking on conventional design, this collection offers you a unique bedroom set, that will not only help create a calming atmosphere but also give you a chance to showcase your creative side. Create the atmosphere you’ve been dreaming of (literally) and wake up feeling rested in our Copeland Wave Collection.

You can shop this bedroom collection securely and conveniently from the comfort of your own home, call us toll free at (888) 390-5571 or stop into our Vernon, VT Showroom. Our friendly and knowledgeable sales team is always here to help with any questions you may have.

New Year Storewide Furniture Sale
Celebrate and cheers to the new year!

Start 2016 Off Right!

People love to make New Year’s Resolutions and every year a majority of those people fail to see their goals come to fruition–I know I can count myself as one of those people. But why do we set ourselves up for failure right from the start? According to a 2013 Forbes.com article, 40% of Americans make New Year’s Resolutions but only 8% achieve their goals.

Maybe it’s our need for self-improvement or an internal competitive trait that makes us set–often times–unrealistic goals for ourselves. This year why don’t we all set more tangible goals and give ourselves the chance to make a successful change in our lives.

This year I know I want to spend more time outside, but how do I measure that? My goal is going to be to complete my screened-in porch “rejuvenation” project (different from a renovation) and to create a patio where my family, friends and I can relax. (Lets check back in on those projects in the Spring).

black-friday
(Black Friday Sale runs Nov. 21-Nov. 28 2015)

Vermont Woods Studios is having an extended Black Friday Furniture Sale!

Ever wonder how Black Friday started? As someone who has never really participated in this massive day of shopping, I was curious this year to find out how it all began and how it got to be so big.

We all know how Thanksgiving started-Pilgrims and Native Americans came together in Plymouth, MA to celebrate a successful harvest after the harsh winters had claimed many of the unprepared colonial settlers lives. It wasn’t until 1863 and the end of the Civil War, that President Abraham Lincoln declared Thanksgiving Day a national holiday.
