Modern-American-Furniture We have three new American made furniture collections at Vermont Woods Studios and we're celebrating finally getting these up and running on our website with a big 15% off sale.  These collections:

Modern American Furniture
Modern Shaker Furniture and
Contemporary Craftsman Furniture

are all handmade in Burlington, Vermont at a small workshop that's been focusing on simplicity and quality since 1970.  

 

Modern-Shaker-Office-Furniture Arthur's classic, high quality, solid hardwood furniture is visually striking while clearly showing the quality of his craftsmanship.  His dining room, bedroom and office furniture is available in solid cherry, walnut, and maple as well as blended combinations of these three wood species.  Arthur takes great pride in his color and grain matching when he selects individual pieces of wood for your furniture and the hand rubbed linseed oil finish he uses really shows off the natural characteristics of the wood.

 

 

Contemporary Craftsman Bedroom Furniture These Modern American Furniture collections are some of our most high end furniture and that is reflected in the price.  With this 10-15% off sale though you have a chance to acquire them at a price that's lower than many of those in our other collections.  Have a look and keep in mind that the sale ends April 19.  We'll look forward to hearing from you if you have any questions.

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.
