Vso-concert-july-4 My favorite 4th of July event in Vermont has always been the Vermont Symphony Orchestra (VSO) concert.  In Southeastern Vermont the concert is on July 3 this year at Grafton Ponds.  It's an incredibly lovely, typically Vermont setting where you can stretch out with your finest picnic wares and enjoy wine, cheese and other favorite delicasies.  For those in the northern part of the state, the VSO concert will be at Shelburne Farms on the 4th.

Lots of other fun events are going on this Independence weekend and one of the best places to scope them out is Vermont Vacation.  Many Vermont State Parks have fireworks, free entry and later hours on the Fourth.  Another favorite activity, especially for families is the Old Vermont 4th at the Billings Farm & Museum, a working dairy farm where they have historic debates, wagon rides, a spelling bee, an egg toss, and more.

VT-July-Furniture-Sale And of course, at Vermont Woods Studios we're celebrating America’s Independence with a 4th of July, USA Made Furniture Sale.  While you’re traveling to Vermont’s music festivals, concerts, fireworks displays, parades, carnivals or fairs– stop in and see our solid wood furniture.  Or shop online or by phone to save time and make the most of your outdoor events schedule.

In honor of our nation's Revolutionary heros, we're offering 20% off every piece of our 100% American made, solid wood furniture storewide.  This is huge because as you may know, we offer this big discount only twice a year.  We have a Black Friday sale at Thanksgiving and one other storewide sale, which is usually in the summer.  This is it!  These are the best prices we can offer — it's a great time to finally buy the authentic, USA  made handcrafted solid wood furniture you've been longing for.  Give us a call today with your questions or customizations.  We look forward to serving you.

VT-Style-Furniture I guess most people don't really think about where their furniture comes from. We do at Vermont Woods Studios Furniture, and we're pretty persnickety about it.

 

Sustainable forestry is a founding principle here and a major part of our mission.  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Deer-in-forestOur furniture is handcrafted of sustainably harvested solid wood, ie., the wood is harvested in America from local and regional forests that are professionally managed such that they will still be around for generations.

 

Why do we care? 

 

We actually got into this business as an offshoot of a non-profit I started 10 years ago, Kids Saving the Planet KSP.   It's a project designed to make environmental education fun and engaging.  I soon learned though, how difficult it is to secure funding for non-profits so I started to think about creating a business that would one day be able to significantly contribute to KSP.  Vermont Woods Studios is what evolved.  The common thread is sustainable forestry– what I feel is one of the top 3 most important environmental issues of our time.

Shaker-office-furniture

 

Isn't this a beautiful home office

It sort of makes me think I would get a much higher level of work done in it… what do you think?

This desk, bookcase and file credenza are part of our new Modern Shaker Furniture Collection and Manjula has them on sale until May 17th, 2011. 

Everything is handmade in Vermont by Vermont craftspeople, using natural solid wood and clear  non-toxic finishes.  We've had great feedback from customers who recently received some of our first orders from this collection. You can check out customer comments at the independent third party website, GreenPeople.org or on our Facebook page.

Facebook Now you're entered to win one of Ken's handmade cutting boards.  They're getting pretty popular actually and we're hoping to give away or sell enough to keep Ken out of trouble… haha!  The boards are made of natural native and exotic hardwood scraps from Ken's shop. 

 

Depending on what he has on hand, you can expect to see a colorful assortment of natural Maple, Cherry, Oak, Walnut, Purple Heart, Padauk, Fir and Mahogany.

A customer remarked the other day that she could not possibly use one for a cutting board because she didn't want to mark it up.  She decided to use it as a cheese board instead.  Ken was so happy.
