The shaded countries are those that have visited our website over the last 80 days. Only 7 countries have not.

 

The other day, Dennis mentioned that our Vermont Sustainable Furniture website has been visited by people in almost ever country in the world. How cool is that?  I couldn't resist having a look at our analytics program to see which countries have yet to discover Vermont's Fine Furniture. 

So… of the planet's 196 countries, it appears there are 7 that we've yet to reach: Turkmenistan, Gabon, Central African Republic, Chad, South Sudan, Mauritiana, Papua New Guinea.

I'm not sure what to do with this information but it was fun to see how far the Internet has spread the word about a tiny group of fine furniture makers nestled in the foothills of Vermont's Green Mountain Forest.

Shaker-furniture-sale Manjula stayed up late last night getting our new Shaker Style Furniture Sale up and running on the website.  I think Shaker furniture is our most popular style.  

 

We have six different Shaker collections and all are handmade here in Vermont using sustainably harvested, natural solid wood:

Vermont has a long history of designing and building Shaker style furniture, which is surprising to some because Vermont really wasn't a hub of the original American Shaker settlements that date back to 1774.  But somehow the craftsmanship and philosophy behind Shaker furniture did take root and spread throughout Vermont during subsequent years and it is alive and well today.

We've gathered together some of the finest Shaker style furniture made in Vermont and indeed anywhere in the world.  We sorted it by room:

and by style/collection:

You'll see that the our Shaker furniture as with the originals is largely based on the concepts
of order, utility and durability.  Initially the Shakers discarded any unnecessary ornament at all, focusing only on clean lines, simple form and proportion.  Our furniture makers have stayed pretty close to those traditional Shaker ideals although you'll see slight embellishments here and there that serve to enhance the style and add visual appeal.

Let us know if you have any questions about our Shaker beds and night stands, Shaker chests, Shaker dressers and mirrors, Shaker armoires, Shaker china cabinets, Shaker dining tables or Shaker dining chairs.
