Cherry Wood FurnitureVermont is America's "go to" store for authentic Cherry Wood Furniture.  Cherry has been the wood of choice for hundreds of Vermont craftsmen for decades.

Whereas most of the big "American" furniture companies have outsourced their wood furniture manufacturing to Asia and Latin America, Vermont companies (with the exception of Ethan Allen, unfortunately) have remained here in the USA. 

Vermont cherry furniture is made to a higher standard and it's still made from real, solid American black cherry wood.  In contrast, many of the well known "American" furniture companies from North Carolina now use Asian woods like rubberwood which they stain and call "cherry".

So it's no wonder that customers come to us with many questions as they seek to find and purchase authentic American black cherry wood furniture.  I thought I'd round up five of our previous blog posts written in response to customer questions about "cherry wood furniture" in hopes of streamlining your research on the subject.  Feel free to post your own questions and comments below or on our Facebook

Copeland-storage-beds

Copeland's Horizon Modern Storage Bed features four sturdy drawers and an optional bench-footboard.  The night stand is designed to allow room to pull the drawers out.  Bed is shown in a dark chocolate stain.  It's also available in natural maple or maple with light colored stains.

Our friends at Copeland Furniture in Bradford, Vermont have come out with what I think is America's best selection of storage beds.  Apparently our customers agree because these platform beds with under-bed storage were our best sellers last week.

Perfect for apartment or condo living Copeland's modern beds are designed for both comfort and style.  This one, the Horizon Bed is shown in a dark chocolate stain over maple wood although several lighter stain colors are also available. 

Each piece in the Horizon bedroom furniture collection is handmade in Vermont with solid, sustainably harvested maple wood and carries our Vermont Woods Studios Lifetime Guarantee.

Copeland offers several other storage bed designs including the Berkeley Storage Bed, the Monterey Storage Bed, the Dominion Storage Bed and the Harbor Island Storage Bed.  These American made platform beds literally do the heavy lifting when it comes to under-bed storage and customers appreciate the high quality and craftsmanship that's become synonymous with Copeland Furniture's brand.  We think you will too!
