I think it’s safe to say every generation is influenced by its predecessor one way or another. I like to think that it’s always for the better, because each generation learns how to improve upon the work of those before them. And with that in mind, I’ve noticed that now more than ever we’re seeing a strong desire for retro inspired products.
Unless you never go out, you can’t avoid running into vintage style ads, soda cans, game boards, fashion trends and furniture designs. There’s hardly an industry that hasn’t been impacted by this demand for retro inspired products. Our newest furniture, Copeland’s Canto Collection is just that, a retro inspired modern take on a classic 1940’s design: hairpin style legs.
Hairpin legs, originally designed by Henry P. Glass in 1941 as part of an outdoor furniture collection used less metal (you can assume to accommodate metal rationing during WWII) all while keeping the strength of traditional legs. Once released, the design quickly rose to popularity and influenced furniture inside the home, from dining chairs to ottomans.
Today you’ll see this back in style design everywhere from Target to One Kings Lane, West Elm and everywhere in-between. If you love the retro look of the hairpin legs and you want it attached to high-quality solid wood bedroom furniture, look no further. Our Copeland Canto Collection, handmade in Vermont, combines the captivating leg design with solid walnut wood for a look that is truly unique.
The Canto Bed is designed with two hairpin legs at the foot of the bed and two solid walnut tapered legs at the head of the bed. The headboard is framed in walnut wood and comes upholstered in a variety of Microsuede and colorful fabrics. The bed is available in Queen and both King and California King sizes.
Relax in mid century modern style with this one-of-a-kind collection now available at Vermont Woods Studios.

If you’re shopping for high quality solid wood bedroom sets, I bet you’ve done a lot of research. Bedroom furniture is a big investment and one that need only be made once in a lifetime. So you want to do it right. We’ve put together a few tips to help make your shopping easier and ensure you get the best value for your investment dollars.
Choose an Enduring Style
You’ve narrowed your search to a bedroom set that’s made of real solid wood, so you’re looking for a quality product you’ll have forever, right? Be sure to pick a style that’s simple and enduring. That way you can change out your linens, curtains and other textiles when you want to indulge in design trends– with no need to re-invest in furniture. Consider classic American bedroom furniture styles that have stood the test of time, like Shaker style, mission style, craftsman style and arts & crafts.
Go with Hardwood over Softwood
Hardwood wears better than softwood (like pine or hemlock) which typically has lots of knots and sap pockets. If you’re investing in high quality bedroom furniture, make sure it’s made of hardwood. We like black cherry, black walnut, hard maple and oak best. They’re top quality North American hardwoods that we can track to make sure they’re harvested sustainably. Here are some photos and descriptions of the hardwoods we recommend.
American Made Furniture Will Long Outlast Imports
The bottom line here is that American made wood furniture is solidly manufactured by American workers with great attention to quality and durability. Not so with imports. Sure, imports are much cheaper than American made furniture in the short run. That’s because Chinese wages are often less than 1/10 of American wages. And the wood used in imports is often illegal. In the USA, wood furniture is made from sustainably harvested wood that comes from well managed American forests. With imported furniture, the wood is typically clear cut from the world’s rapidly disappearing rainforests. Although imported furniture often carries labels that it’s made of American hardwoods like cherry, walnut, oak or maple woods, that is rarely the case. These labels are trade names used to describe woods of suspicious origin that are stained to look like familiar American woods such as cherry and walnut. If you want to feel good about your furniture, make sure it’s American made.
Get the Best Value and Price
Top quality solid wood furniture is inherently expensive. It’s not just the wood… it’s the value of American craftsmanship you’re paying for. Transforming a tree into a dresser, a bed or a dining table takes time and talent. Many people are involved in bringing you a finished piece of furniture, from the land owner where that tree grew to the professional forester who selected the tree for harvest, to the logger to the sawyer to the timber salesperson to the craftsman who builds your bed and the shipper who delivers it to you.
We’re always working on adding value to this supply chain and I can tell you that the best way to save money is to purchase your furniture as a set. It enables an economy of scale in all those links in the chain between the forest and your home.
We’re hoping this savings will help you make the decision to purchase American made furniture that your family will enjoy with pride for generations. Check out the many new solid wood bedroom sets Tristan has just posted online. They’re priced with our best discounts & lowest prices ever. Enjoy great values on best selling, high quality handcrafted, real solid wood dressers, chests, armoires, night stands and mirrors arranged in fine furniture sets to save you money.

Is it time for your forever bedroom set? It’s hard to beat solid wood bedroom furniture.
Many first homes away from home have bedrooms that consist of consignment finds or big box “furniture kits.” These “furniture kits” come in hundreds of pieces, are impossibly frustrating to assemble, and always seem to be missing one screw. If you’ve had enough of the mismatched and perhaps fragile pieces, maybe it’s time to upgrade to a collection that you could live with forever.
Forever furniture is constructed with premium hardwood, traditionally crafted by hand, and is carefully finished to enhance the natural beauty of the wood while protecting the furniture. High quality solid wood bedroom furniture will remain functional and sturdy through time. Pair this exceptional quality with timeless styling and you will have forever furniture.
Vermont Woods Studios has carefully chosen our bedroom collections based on this forever furniture criteria. When it comes to real hardwoods, we found Cherry, Maple, Walnut and Oak to be the best. Our skilled Vermont furniture makers craft each piece knowing it should last forever, which makes us confident enough to offer a lifetime guarantee. With our free white glove delivery, you won’t have to assemble a thing, or borrow a truck to get it home.
If you’ve been longing for your forever bedroom set, our Fall Bedroom Furniture Sale starts today. For two weeks, save up to 20% on your dream bedroom furniture. Our online gallery features hundreds of solid wood bedroom pieces with styles ranging from traditional to contemporary. Take your time, browse our online furniture gallery, and if you need any assistance finding your forever bedroom furniture set, our Vermont furniture specialists are here to help. Feel free to utilize our Live Chat option in the top right corner of our gallery, or give them a call at 888-390-5571.
Finding the Best Value in Solid Wood Bedroom Furniture
Handmade, real solid wood bedroom sets are a significant investment so if you’re shopping for one, you’re no doubt looking for the best overall value in terms of quality and price. Comparison shopping is hard work. It takes days, weeks and even (for many of our customers) months to research all the design and style choices for fine hardwood bedroom furniture sets.
And the price comparisons can really get tricky. Pricing can initially look like it’s all over the place but once you start to narrow down the level of quality you want you begin to see that, with high end, American made furniture, the pricing falls into a very narrow range. That’s because there’s just not a lot of room for mark-up. Handcrafting fine wood furniture takes extraordinary amounts of time to create and when that work is done here in America (which is probably important to if you made it to our blog) it needs to be compensated with a livable wage.
So when it comes to offering the best value for American made fine furniture, retailers like us (Vermont Woods Studios) have the greatest opportunity to save you money by being smart about the way we ship furniture (it turns out that shipping 3 or more pieces of furniture isn’t much more expensive than shipping one) and do our administrative work. With our solid wood bedroom furniture sets we’ve focused on both and are able to discount these sets a full 20%.
Just so you know, this is the best price and lowest discount we’re able to offer at anytime, all year long. While others might mark up to mark down by 70% or so routinely, we do not. Our prices accurately reflect the cost of creating your furniture and getting it to you safely via the best fine furniture shipping specialist in the country. So check out our solid wood bedroom sets today and let us know what you think on Facebook.
