Our beautiful fine furniture and Vermont made home decor showroom is open 9-6 on Saturday and 12-5 on Sunday. If you’ve been dreaming about making the trip to visit us and see our Vermont handcrafted furniture up close, we’d love to have you here this weekend! The weather in Vermont is supposed to be great, the showroom is full of great furniture pieces, and we’re sure it’ll be worth the trip.
Bring a picnic lunch and walk around our 100+ acre property. Enjoy the natural beauty of the trees while you shop for wood furniture that comes from well managed forests just like the one in our backyard!

When you think of a furniture store, a certain image might come to mind. You might imagine a busy strip mall full of people rushing in and out to make their purchase and move on with the day, or a giant warehouse showroom full of basic furniture pieces. At Stonehurst, however, what you will see is much different than that. Vermont’s newest furniture store is unique in its ability to capture the spirit of Vermont in its warmth and simplicity– as well as the breathtaking natural area that surrounds it. We invite you to view these photos of Stonehurst and see for yourself some of the small details that make Stonehurst more than your average furniture showroom. (Click on the small photos to start a slideshow!)
If you like what you see, we’d love for you to visit us. We’re open 9-5, Monday through Saturday. Stop on by to check out our furniture and see this unique shopping experience for yourself. See you soon!
Stonehurst continues to see lots of updates and upgrades! From our beautiful walk way, to our new utility shed, to the updated deck being built outback– the improvements are coming along quickly and creating a truly picturesque place to showcase our Vermont Style Furniture.
We know that a lot of our friends and customers like to keep up to date with whats happening around Stonehurst, just out of general curiosity or to find out when is the best time to plan for a visit.
And despite all of the updates going on around Stonehurst, we’re happy to have guests! The inside of the showroom looks absolutely beautiful, fully adorned with high-end decor and one of a kind art pieces from local Vermont artisans.
Here, take a peek for yourself!
Well, there’s a tiny peek at what the showroom looks like. We’ll save the rest for your first visit! See you soon!
It's been a long time coming and we've tried to be quiet about it… for worry about everything that can go wrong in a real estate transaction.
But we're now in the final countdown– just 3 more days until we close on the purchase of Stonehurst, an historic circa 1800 farmhouse and former ski area located just up the road in Vernon, Vermont.
Stonehurst will be our new showroom, office space and nature center. It's a traditional Vermont style farmhouse that sits on 109 acres of forest and meadow, overlooking the Connecticut River. Not your typical furniture store!
We're excited that we'll finally be able to show customers a wide selection of all the custom and made to order furniture our Vermont craftspeople have to offer. Even more exciting for me personally is the idea of conserving the property and providing eco-conscious customers a chance to see and experience the land where their furniture comes from.
Check in after we settle on Stonehurst this Thursday for more details on our plans to make it a destination shopping experience.
Part of our feasibility study to see if the Skyline property on Vermont's Hogback Mountain would work for Vermont Woods Studios is anaylzing the possibility of co-locating a cafe or wine bar with the furniture showroom. It's not a real natural combination, is it (furniture and food)?
But two factors keep pointing to the pairing of these functions at Skyline:
The Skyline location, on top of Hogback Mountain, with it's 100 mile view of the Green Mountain Forest offers what I've been looking for to raise awareness about where your wood furniture comes from. After all, you can buy imported wood furniture anywhere but it's probably going to be made from illegally harvested trees, clear-cut from the world's rapidly disappearing tropical rainforests. Our customers are interested in acquiring heirloom quality, Vermont-made furniture that's crafted from natural, solid, wood that's been sustainably harvested from beautiful, well-managed American forests (more about green, environmental concerns here).
The other factor is that: How could you operate ANYTHING at Skyline without inviting people to come up and enjoy the view? It would be kinda like that commercial for Ally bank where the guy asks 2 little girls if they'd like a pony. He shows a real pony to one of the girls but only gives her a little figurine instead. The announcer says something like: "even kids know it's wrong to hold out on somebody." That's how I'd feel having a business at Skyline that didn't offer people a place to relax and enjoy the view with a cup of tea or a glass of wine.
So now we're trying to figure out how to strategically pair a Vermont-made furniture showroom with a cafe or wine bar. Allocating space is the conundrum of the day. 60% furniture — 40% cafe? Additional seasonal seating outside? I guess the answers will reveal themselves as we do our research.
Got ideas? Suggestions? Interested in running an upscale cafe at Skyline? Contact us on Facebook and jump into the conversation. We'll be looking for local help as we navigate through the feasibility study and (hopefully) beyond.
