Neville and Martin have been working with Dennis and Kelsey to create a new Furniture Clearance Sale section for our website. This beautiful Vermont Farm Table, Tavern Bench and Ladderback Chair Set is currently housed there– and it’s the best deal in our store. So if there’s anyone out there like me… perhaps with a spouse who “occasionally” gripes about the price of things you NEED for your home– here’s your big chance!
The Vermont Tavern Table Dining Set is priced at just $3999, after a 40% discount from our regular price (a savings of $2500). The design of the dining set has been modified– this set has been discontinued and will no longer be offered exactly as you see it here.
So, if you love early American design, give this bargain some serious consideration. The table is handcrafted with a thick, solid cherry wood top and a maple wood base that’s finished with durable black paint. The base is traditionally crafted with large turned William & Mary style legs (legs are removable to make moving the table easier). The table top is finished with a satin, durable GREENGUARD® certified eco-friendly varnish that stands up well to everyday wear and tear.
Unlike most of our furniture which is made to order, this Vermont farm table is already in our showroom and available immediately. Shipping usually takes a few weeks, but if you pick it up at Stonehurst, you could have it in your home for Thanksgiving dinner! Some lucky family is going to be enjoying turkey and apple pie around this beautiful table– why not make it yours?

This farmhouse style Vermont Tavern Bench is part of a new line of furniture we’re making. It’s a unique signature collection, available only at Vermont Woods Studios. Traditionally crafted, this 2-tone bench features a 1 inch thick solid cherry wood seat, with a durable maple wood base painted with black lacquer.
Vermont farmhouse furniture is adapted from William and Mary style furniture that was popular in England around 1700 after the reign of King William and Queen Mary. These pieces are reproductions of the classic English tavern table and bench you’ll see in inns throughout the UK and New England (a few of Southern Vermont’s favorites are the Grafton Inn, Ye Olde Tavern, The Hermitage Inn).
Besides being a durable, heirloom piece– the Vermont Tavern Bench is sleek and stylish. The contrast between the traditional Cherry wood and the deep black lacquer base creates a truly unique piece that would make a great furniture addition for anyone looking to add a little flair to their dining area. Stop by our fine furniture showroom at Stonehurst and check it out!
