A few days ago, one of our customers sent us these great photos of his new Maple Shaker furniture in his bedroom. Staying true to Shaker sensibilities, the room has an uncluttered and simplistic look; using his American Shaker bedroom furniture to accent the darkness of his walls and highlight the maple flooring. I love it!
These photos inspired me to write a bit about why Maple Wood furniture is great, and the ways it can be used to enhance your own bedroom or other home space!
Maple Wood furniture has a much more informal l look to it than say, Walnut wood, which is typically associated with bold & modern decor styles. The lightness of this wood helps to give your space a relaxed and comfortable vibe– creating an understated interior design style that fits well with traditional Shaker aesthetic.
If you don’t know much about what Shaker Furniture Style encompasses, I’ll give you an overview:
1) Its clean, simple, and unfussy
2) Its practical
3) It features smooth lines and edges
4) Historically, it wasn’t made for “prettiness,” but for use; throughout the years, however, its understated aesthetic has become one of the most popular wood furniture styles!
As you can see from these customer photos, Shaker Furniture in Maple wood is simplistic and elegant; fitting for both a feminine or masculine bedroom. Whats so great about that? Well, It’s ideal for a shared bedroom, keeping both the husband and wife happy! Doesn’t get much better than that!
Lastly, Shaker furniture made in maple wood is great because it really is beautiful and usable in practically any room in the home. Its simplicity gives it a charm that has made it a favorite of furniture lovers for decades.

Copeland Furniture will be rolling out their new products for 2013 this week at the Highpoint Furniture Market in North Carolina. Each year at the Fall Market Copeland announces which products are being changed, discontinued and added to their luxury line of Vermont made furniture. Dennis and Heather are analyzing Copeland’s changes now and we’ll highlight them over the next few weeks.
One thing I wanted to mention right away though, is that the Copeland Lily Collection is being discontinued as of December 1, 2012. I know many of you have previously purchased Lily beds, dressers, chests and nightstands for your bedroom and if you’re looking to complete your set, now is the time to make your move.
We hate to see Lily go as this natural maple, transitional Shaker style furniture has been a favorite among our customers. But there is an upside for you. Typically when fine furniture collections like this are discontinued, their value is increased as they become more rare and unique over time. Your Vermont made bedroom set may one day be a collector’s item and you can hand it down through your family for generations. Give Liz and Heather a call today or complete your Lily bedroom furniture set by ordering it online through our secure server.
