Copeland’s Catalina dining set is designed with mid-century modern style, including clean unadorned lines and retro-modern shapes and sensibilities. Buying the furniture as a set can save you big on shipping.

Manjula just published a new Copeland dining set yesterday:  it’s the Catalina Mid Century Modern Collection.

If you’re looking for authentic, solid walnut, fine dining furniture, have a look at Catalina.  This Copeland set is 100% handmade in America– right here in Vermont.

It’s designed with mid-century modern style, including clean unadorned lines and retro-modern shapes and sensibilities.  Manjula has arranged our Catalina dining set to make it easy to price and purchase dozens of combinations of tables, chairs and buffets.  You can use drop-down menus to price out different choices for arm chairs, side chairs, extension table versus solid top table and buffet sizes.

Customers receive free DIY shipping and discounted white glove shipping when purchasing this furniture as a set so the savings can be substantial.  We also offer a lifetime guarantee and a low price guarantee.  If you’re considering Catalina or any other Copeland furniture I recommend you check out our Top 10 Reasons to Buy Copeland Furniture at Vermont Woods Studios.  It really does make a difference where you buy.

Shopping for high quality, handmade solid wood furniture this Labor Day weekend?   We're having a 15% Storewide Sale through Tuesday, September 4th. Check it out!

Because this is back-to-school time, most of the furniture sold in August and September is sort of disposable… you know what I meant, right?  Even Kendall (I'm embarassed to say) had to make an emergency trip to Ikea to pick up a portable bookshelf for his dorm room.

Most people just assume that the furniture they buy is going to be on the curbside in 5-10 years.  It's part of the "planned obsolescence" strategy which ensures furniture stores that future sales will be strong.

So why, at Vermont Woods Studios are we selling heirloom quality, fine furniture that's backed by a lifetime guarantee? It probably seems foolish to many.

But quite honestly, here's the reason why:  Heather's taken three orders today from repeat customers who love their Vermont made furniture. It's the real thing and there's nothing quite like it. 

In an age when few things last for decades (let alone generations) we're proud to be selling Vermont made furniture and it seems only fair to back up our promise of quality with a lifetime guarantee. 

If a lifetime guarantee on fine furniture is important to you, how 'bout letting us know on our Facebook?

Cherry-veneer-chest
This high end Vermont Shaker chest and nightstand are handmade with solid cherry wood, and cherry veneers that are used in the case sides and backs.

Yesterday I wrote about our solid cherry furniture so today I wanted to follow up with a post about the furniture we carry that incorporates cherry veneers.

 

Sometimes customers come to us, initially averse to veneer but once they take a closer look they often change their minds.  I realize veneers have been given a negative connotation by companies that stick them on particle board to make cheap furniture.

But did you know that premium quality, high end veneers are used by some of the world’s most skilled furniture makers to add artistic flair and style to their work?

This is the case with the following six high end furniture collections:

Cherry Moon Furniture

Vermont Shaker Furniture

American Shaker Furniture

Copeland Sarah Shaker Furniture

Copeland Monterey Collection

Copeland Berkeley Collection

 

These furniture collections are made with all solid cherry wood except for the sides and backs of case goods.  Real wood veneer is used for case goods (chests, dressers, cabinets, night stands) sides and backs for esthetic and structural design reasons.  The pieces are made with frame and panel type construction and the use of solid wood in this design might cause the panels to warp in conditions of changing humidity.

As solid wood furniture specialists at Vermont Woods Studios, we spend a lot of time discussing the specifics of solid wood versus veneered construction methods with our customers.  Details for each of our collections are found in our Construction Details pages.  We welcome your comments and questions either below, on our Facebook, by phone or in person at our Vernon VT showroom.

Solid-cherry-furniture

At Vermont Woods Studios, solid cherry furniture is our specialty. Although our furniture is sometimes shown in walnut, maple and oak it can always be ordered in cherry by using the drop-down menus or giving us a call.

At Vermont Woods Studios, solid cherry furniture has always been our specialty.  Although most of our craftspeople routinely work in walnut, maple and oak too, cherry continues to be the favorite wood amongst our customers.  And many are specifically looking for all solid cherry wood, rather than cherry with veneers.

 

 

For those customers I thought it might be helpful to compile a current list of all the furniture collections we offer in solid cherry wood.  Here you go– all 18 of them:

Modern American Furniture

Contemporary Craftsman Furniture

Modern Shaker Furniture

Bow-Front Furniture

Andrews Cherry Furniture

Vermont Modern Furniture

New England Shaker Furniture

 

 

 

Solid-cherry-furniture

This is Copeland's Astrid bedroom furniture collection, available in all solid cherry (as shown), maple or walnut wood.

 

 

Modern Mission Furniture

Classic Shaker Furniture

American Mission Furniture

Smith Natural Vermont Furniture

Northup Craftsman Furniture

New York Furniture

Renfrew Shaker Furniture

Modern Designer Furniture

American Country Furniture

Copeland Astrid Collection

Copeland Mansfield Collection

Each of these collections is handmade here in VT with solid wood throughout (except the backs of some case goods*).  Sometimes our photos show the furniture in walnut or maple, but you can use the drop down menus to select cherry wood.  Details regarding how these furniture sets are built can be found on our Construction Details pages where you'll find specifics on joinery, drawer slides, hardware options, premium wood selection, finishing methods, etc. 

Tomorrow, I'll post about cherry furniture that incorporates veneers.  Got questions?  Give us a call or post them on our Facebook.

 

The backs of case goods in some of these collections are made of furniture grade plywood.  This choice is based on the stability of plywood, versus solid woods which expand and contract with varying humidity levels.  There are many structural and design details involved in a craftsman's decision to use solid wood versus plywood.  Please check our Construction Details pages for specifics.
