Slimmed down technology is rapidly changing the sizing and functional needs of furniture. The rooms that are most impacted by this change is the living room and home office, because these rooms are home to most of our electronic devices.
When you trade in your large desktop computer for a sleek laptop, you will probably find yourself trading in your large computer armoire for a writing desk. Trading in your clunky old computer desk means that you can finally get rid of the cheap particle board desk! It’s time for you to treat yourself to real wood home office furniture. This furniture, unlike your electronics, will stay in style and will last forever.
Despite how small our electronics have become, we have found that people really enjoy having a little storage space in their real wood home office furniture- even if it’s just one small center drawer. We offer a variety of storage options with our home office furniture, because we know how much a difference it can make. If you like the new minimalist look of desks, a desktop organizer, or a hutch (shown in the image above) can be a great option. It provides you with enough space to hide away your chargers and cords, but doesn’t take up too much additional space. Small wood filing cabinets are another option for storage in your home office. Our two-drawer filing cabinets are small enough that they can nest right under your desk.
It is common for a contemporary living room to have a flat screen TV mounted on the wall, or set on a small media console. This cuts down on the space we use in our living rooms, allowing more space for a nice rocking chair. Similarly to the home office, our new electronic devices assist our decisions in furniture. Many people are looking for a small, simple wood media console that holds their cable box, Blu-Ray player, and sound system. In our online gallery you will find a variety of media consoles that store these devices in a number of ways. Some of our tv stands have glass doors to display the contents. Others have solid wood doors, so you don’t have to worry about keeping your cords always look neat and organized. For those of you who still enjoy a large piece of furniture to use as a focal point, we have a variety of wood entertainment centers. Our entertainment centers offer more storage space for your living room.

If you are now on your second “big box store” office desk and looking to replace this wobbly one once and for all you might want to consider a real wood desk (one that you can use and enjoy for many carefree years). Same goes for that TV entertainment center. Are the door hinges just barely hanging on? Or maybe your bookcase shelves are bowing under the weight of your book collection? And how would you like your new real wood desk or entertainment center to arrive fully assembled (our Vermont made furniture arrives assembled). We probably all have purchased one of those big box store desks, bookcases or entertainment centers that come in a giant heavy box filled with dozens of screws, nuts and bolts. Which one goes where? And after a few frustrating hours of assembly you have some furniture that at best is functional. Well for the time being!
And of course nothing can match the beauty, styling and sturdiness of real wood. Beautiful and interesting wood grain can never be simulated and stains or dyes could never match the natural color of real wood. Sure real wood, crafted in America furniture costs more but when you consider you will never have to buy it again it suddenly becomes the real bargain!
So starting today our Vermont, American made real wood living room and home office furniture is on sale. From now through August 23rd you can save up to 15% plus receive free shipping! And you may also be happy to know that along with getting a great value and beautifying your home you are supporting a local US economy plus helping preserve our natural resources by buying lasting furniture made with domestic, sustainably harvested woods. Oh, one last note! If you visit our online furniture galley and do not see exactly what you want, most of our pieces can be modified in size and configuration. Or if you just want to chat more about real wood furniture just drop us a line!
