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.
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.
We introduced our eco-friendly Contemporary Cable Collection just a couple weeks ago but this high end, modern metal and wood furniture is already becoming a best seller. Customers shopping for a unique blend of Vermont style craftsmanship and sophisticated urban design are studying this furniture set. They like the clean look, the inlaid aluminum accent bars and the braided stainless steel drawer pulls.
One of our designer friends found this solid wood furniture to be the perfect answer for clients who are moving into a renovated factory space in Montreal. Their luxury apartment has concrete floors and exposed metal duct work suspended from an 18 foot tall ceiling. The owners wanted high end, natural wood furniture to warm up their space but they also wanted to incorporate some of the post-industrial character of the room. The combination of solid wood, aluminum inlays and stainless steel cable drawer pulls in the furniture set brings the whole design concept together.
Green Design Considerations
The fact that the Contemporary Cable Collection is built with sustainably harvested wood and finished with a natural hand-rubbed oil was also important to these home owners. They had made conscious decisions to go green in their selection of a renovated dwelling that was part of a neighborhood revitalization project. So handmade, natural furniture fits into the green lifestyle they are embracing.
What do you think about this metal and wood furniture? Would it fit into your bedroom design?
We'll be introcuding our new luxury Modern Shaker Furniture Collection in a few weeks but I wanted to let you have an insiders look at what's to come. This is one of the three lines of Vermont Made furniture we were photographing in Burlington last month. We have several pieces up on the website now, but we're still working on it and the entire collection is not yet available online (it is available by phone).
This is classic Shaker style furniture with a few modern twists, like arched aprons and curved corners. Actually customers have their choice of square or rounded corners and edges. It's amazing how different the pieces look just by changing that one feature– the corners and edges.
