Our customers’ favorite Vermont made Craftsman Style Furniture is the Cherry Moon Collection. It’s contemporary Asian design has a light but grounded appearance. Reverse-tapered legs, posts and an intricate cove under the tops round out the design to give any room a comforting and natural feeling. Rich black walnut, half-moon drawer pulls complete the design of these natural cherry, maple, and walnut hardwood pieces.
Traditionally mission style furniture is characterized by rectilinear design, simple, straight construction, heavy proportion and exposed joinery. It’s typically made with oak wood and given a medium or dark stain. Drawer pulls are often simple round brass rings or rectangular back plates of solid brass with canted corners and an oval bail handle. But today’s Vermont made mission style furniture incorporates modern contemporary design features and is often crafted of cherry, walnut and maple wood. You can customize it online to get whichever traditional and contemporary features you like.
Vermont craftspeople have mastered the art of simple elegance in their many variations of American Shaker style furniture, ranging from a strict interpretation of the original Shaker pieces to creative versions with modern functionalities, curves and hardware. Simple aesthetics and sturdy design remain at the heart of today’s Vermont Shaker style furniture.
Natural Cherry Wood is a favorite among our customers as it develops a lustrous, rich reddish brown patina over the years. Premium quality real cherry wood furniture is hard to find and often imitated (poorly) so don’t be fooled by the imports sporting cherry trade names. Vermont is well established as the “go to” place to purchase real natural cherry wood furniture.
American Black Walnut Wood is the only really dark North American wood. Like cherry it’s a prized, premium hardwood that carries a commensurate price tag. Vermont woodworkers are specialists in black walnut furniture, handcrafting it from top quality solid walnut wood.

Happy Birthday to President Washington, President Lincoln and all of our favorite American presidents! We celebrated Presidents Day yesterday at the local (and world famous) Harris Hill Ski Jump so today we’re back working with customers who are taking advantage of our Presidents Day Furniture Sale.
The beautiful Vermont made Shaker Moon Bed is our most popular item this week. It’s a classic Shaker style bed and it’s often vying for first place in our Best Seller line up with the Cherry Moon Bed. Both beds are handmade by a small group of craftspeople in a Montpelier workshop using real solid cherry wood that’s sustainably harvested. The beds feature an incredibly soft, hand-rubbed, natural linseed oil finish and they’re guaranteed for a lifetime.
Matching dressers, chests, mirrors and nigh stands are also available in the Vermont Made Shaker and Cherry Moon Bedroom Furniture collections and everything is on sale through tomorrow at midnight for 15% off.
