Cherry-moon-bookcase

 

Maybe everyone is wishing they were more organized as they're struggling to finish up their taxes this week.  I don't know, but we've had a lot of calls from customers wanting to buy bookcases. Specifically, real solid wood bookcases with glass doors

This one is our Cherry Moon bookcase which can be customized online.  It's available with glass doors, wooden doors or no doors.  There are 5 heights you can order online with our standard width of 39"W and depth of 15"D.  Further customization can be done by phone or in the showroom.

I'd guess we probably have about the most customizable selection of real wood bookcases anywhere online.  Check out these links if you're looking to be more organized at tax time next year:

*   Bookcases with full length glass doors

*  Bookcases with half length glass doors

*  Bookcases with full length wooden doors

Copeland Bedroom Sets: Best Value in Solid Wood, Vermont Made Furniture

February 12th, 2012 by Peggy Farabaugh

 

Copeland-bedroom-sets

Dennis and Manjula have been working on getting a beautiful selection of Copeland Bedroom Furniture Sets up on our website. 

Copeland is our newest line of Vermont made furniture and their styles include traditional, Shaker and modern furniture, such as the:
Berkeley Cherry Bedroom Set (Modern Asian style)

Catalina Walnut Bedroom Set (Modern, minimalist style)

Astrid Cherry Bedroom Set (Ultra modern, Jetson's style)

Soho Walnut & Maple Bedroom (Modern metropolitan style)

Copeland's signature style is kind of a clean, simple elegance that's very popular in the more chic neighborhhods of Manhattan and other cities.  But we love it up here in rural Vernon VT too!

A few logistical details:  the sets are designed to save you on shipping.  We couldn't lower the prices of the furniture in the sets because we already have Copeland furniture priced as low as possible.  In fact we have a low price guarantee on Copeland furniture.  But with the sets, you save on shipping– which is significant.  Rather than paying $300/piece for white glove delivery, you can order as many pieces as you like and pay just $450 for shipping and white glove delivery of the whole set.

Check out the sets and let us know what you think.  We've tried to make them versatile so you can customize your set online with any combination of pieces you might like, but I'm sure we haven't thought of everything.  Give us a call if you can't find the exact pieces you need for your set.  Rebecca and Shannon will be happy to hear from you!

One more thing.  So far we just have Copeland bedroom sets up but in another month or so we'll have their collection of Frank Lloyd Wright dining sets as well.  If you're looking to purchase before then, just call.

Beds and Storage

January 28th, 2012 by Peggy Farabaugh

Under-bed-storageRemember when you used to clean up your bedroom by hiding everything under the bed?  Well now you can do that in style!  Luxury solid wood platform beds with underbed storage drawers are best sellers at Vermont Woods Studios this year. 

Metropolitan apartment dwellers trying to make the most of furniture for small spaces are finding that underbed storage drawers can elegantly replace the need for chests, dressers and armoires.

Storage beds can also provide space for shoes, seasonal clothing, blankets and linens.  This one is the Harbor Island Platform Storage Bed and it's shown here in solid natural maple wood, although you can customize it online with dark wood colors too.

The matching nightstand is designed to let you pull out the storage drawers easily.  There's another Harbor Island nightstand with a drawer if you prefer, but you'll have to move it aside to open the storage drawers. 

All of our storage beds are 100% made in America (right here in Vermont actually) of sustainably harvested wood with family-friendly non-toxic finishes.  Check them out!

Wood Dining Tables: Why Do We Love Them Best?

January 23rd, 2012 by Peggy Farabaugh

Wood-tablesWood dining tables are our most popular, best selling pieces at Vermont Woods Studios Fine Furniture.  Most customers come to us for solid cherry wood tables, but we also build a good number of tables in maple, walnut and oak wood too.  Occasionally we get a custom order for wood tables made out of other woods, like the reclaimed barnwood farm table that Yankee Magazine is featuring in their March/April issue this year.

So why wood?  I mean you could eat off a glass top table or a metal table or even a plastic table.  I think for many people, wood makes an important emotional connection that maybe we're not even consciously aware of.  A customer recently told me she came to us because of the natural, organic apsect of our wooden furniture.  She said that trees are actually a source of spiritual sustenance and renewal for her. I was thinking about that and came across this passage about trees written by woodworker and naturalist Brian Clifford:

A tree is a thing of beauty and wonderment, huge, but full of life and movement. A deciduous tree is the embodiment of the changing seasons: a stark framework in winter, bursting life in spring, a vast green canopy in summer and the bearer of seeds and fruit in the autumn. It is the embodiment of man's condition: birth, life, death, regeneration and rebirth.

I'm not sure people choose wood for their dining and kitchen tables for reasons quite that deep, but I love reading Brian's thoughts and philosophy about the relationship between trees and man.  He notes that our ancestors evolved in trees:

The period our ancestors spent in the trees was of great formative importance; this was the environment in which man's basic structures, brain, sense organs, limbs and reproductive system, evolved. In response to the exigencies of living in trees the animal's paws were modified into members able to grip: the claws atrophied, the digits lengthened, and an opposed thumb developed. The eyes became larger and moved towards the front of the head providing three-dimensional vision. In concert with these bodily changes, and their application in confronting the dangers in the tree tops, the creature's brain developed new features and increased in power.

Ha!  It seems we owe our brain power to trees.  I bet you never thought of that as the reason you were shopping for a wood dining table today.

Solid Wood Desks and Bookcases – Getting Organized For The New Year

January 18th, 2012 by Peggy Farabaugh

Solid-wood-bookcases-desks

 

How are you doing on your New Year's resolutions?  I finally started mine today.  First: get my workspace organized. 

 

This is what I want it to look like.

 

 

 

Peggys-messy-office

 

Instead, I'm sad to say, it looks like this.  Can you believe that?  Especially considering my work with fine, American made, solid wood furniture at Vermont Woods Studios.

I don't have a bookcase or a file cabinet.   I do have a couple beautiful solid wood desks that Ken made for me when we moved into this space last year.  I try to file everything electronically but that's not always possible so I end up with stacks of papers on my desks, notes on the wall and other stuff on the floor. 

So today I decided to start getting organized.  I asked Douglas to order me a new solid wood file cabinet from our Modern Shaker Office Furniture Collection.  If that's not enough to do the job, I may have to splurge on the huge Solid Wood Bookcase in the picture above.  We'll see.  We seem to be moving and growing a lot so it all depends on how long we're here in this lovely office with the wood paneling and aqua carpets.  I wouldn't want to get too far out of step with the modern decor.

Natural, Organic Walnut Bed Added to Jim Andrews Furniture Collection

July 9th, 2009 by Peggy Farabaugh

New-walnut-bed We have a natural, organic walnut bed to add to our Vermont Woods Studios Jim Andrews Collection. This was a special design requested by a customer, but we liked it so much, we've decided to offer it as part of our Jim Andrews Collection.  The bed features elegant curves in the posts and complimentary curves in the headboard and footboard.  It's shown here in natural walnut, but can be made in natural cherry, maple or oak as well. 

Have you ever thought of designing your own furniture?  Maybe you have an existing piece or set you would like to supplement.  Or perhaps you have an odd shaped space you need to fit your furniture into.  Or maybe you love the look of one of our natural cherry tables, but the dimensions need to be changed.  Or you're looking for a different wood.

Custom and customized furniture are our specialty at Vermont Woods Studios.  Each piece of our furniture is made to order and can be easily and affordably customized to meet your needs.  Why not give us a call today?  1-888-390-5571.  We look forward to hearing from you!
