Know any Sales professionals looking for a complete change of pace? The Sales Manager job opening we have at Vermont Woods Studios is pretty unique. First of all, although we sell to customers from New York to Los Angeles, our showroom and offices are in the tiny rural town of Vernon, Vermont. It’s beautiful here and there’s lots to do if you love the outdoors (admittedly you’ll have to drive a couple hours to get to a theater or stadium though).
About the job… well it’s all about helping people and being a resourceful problem-solver. You’ll be helping our brilliant sales people and improving the tools they use to serve our customers. You’ll be helping our furniture workshops understand and fulfill our customer needs. You’ll be helping all of us here at Vermont Woods Studios to manage and grow our company. And you’ll be helping us with our mission of “furnishing a greener world”.
If you’re interested or know someone who is, check out this job opening and send us a resume. Then pick out your new office from the photos in our Stonehurst archive and let us know which one you want. This one’s Ken’s but there’s room for a second person, if you don’t mind the cold.
Last month I mentioned that we had made the decision to add Copeland Furniture's beautiful Vermont made collection to our online furniture store. Since then we've been researching and studying the details about this luxury furniture line. I am amazed at the diversity of styles and construction designs offered by Copeland. And at the affordability they have engineered into their furniture through high-precision processes.
Tim Copeland started his company in 1974 as a one-man operation in a garage in rural Vermont. His earlier designs were inspired by Shaker furniture but now Copeland Furniture offers many creative styles including Shaker, Mid Century modern, Danish, Scandinavian, Asian, Arts and Crafts, Japanese, and transitional designs.
Dennis is our point person on Copeland Furniture and he's been feverishly working away over the last several weeks. He's drafted over 100 new Copeland product pages and has been bringing the rest of us up to speed on Copeland styles and construction details. My job is to polish and publish Dennis' draft pages. Kendall is creating information pages that explain construction details and finish options for the different collections. Manjula is orchestrating the whole project and fixing our mistakes as we go.
So far we've been able to add most of the products in Copeland's Berkeley, Catalina, Harbor Island, Horizon and Lily collections. I figure we're about 30% through the project but we're picking up speed and we're hoping to have it complete within a couple weeks. In the meantime, if you're interested in purchasing and our website doesn't yet have the details you need, you can find our Copeland Furniture catalog, policies and prices here. Or give Rebecca and Shannon a call at 888-390-5571 with your questions. We'll look forward to hearing your thoughts about this new Vermont made furniture line.
