Vermont Woods Studios Furniture Interns: Taegen, Riley, Trenton and Tristan.
Vermont Woods Studios Furniture student interns: Taegen, Riley, Trenton and Tristan.

It’s a beautiful, warm sunny summer day at Vermont Woods Studios which makes it hard to believe Autumn is almost here.  But if the weather isn’t enough of a reminder,  the annual loss of our student interns is making it all too clear.

Vermont Woods Studios Furniture Interns: busy stacking 40 cords of firewood
The Fab Four gathered and cut 40 cords of firewood this summer!

Today we send them our heartfelt thanks for all the hard work they put in throughout the summer.  Perhaps the toughest job they had was gathering, slicing and dicing 40 cords of firewood to keep the rest of us warm during the winter.

What name do you think this band of rock stars should take up?

They also pitched in on many other tasks required to maintain our woodlands and keep our Stonehurst fine furniture store looking clean, green & beautiful.  We wish them great success at school and in their other endeavors.  Hope to see you guys back here next summer!

After this long, harsh Vermont winter–the small joys of springtime, like gardening, are cherished. Nina has been outside all morning planting Cosmos for our butterfly garden. Cosmos are annuals that are known for their showy, colorful flowers. They are treasures to look at but we adore them for another reason, because they attract birds, bees, and butterflies. We are trying to create a natural landscape that is both beautiful and wildlife friendly, as our showroom sits on more than one hundred acres of woodland and meadow; Land that many species call home.

Liz, our company green thumb, wanted in on some of the planting and came down to assist Nina. While most of the time Liz is on the phone or computer chatting with our customers, there are some days where we just have to make time to get out in the radiant Vermont sunshine. Today is one of those days. Fotor0610132621

While the garden is just getting started, there is still a lot of beauty to be seen at Stonehurst. We’d love to invite you to visit our charming country showroom where the forest serves as the backdrop to some of Vermont’s finest natural wood furniture.

Vermont Furniture Photography
Nina & Dennis photograph a new live edge dining table, a recent showroom addition.

As you browse through our website, you might notice that some of our photos are a little less than spectacular. This is a problem for some people when buying furniture online because it doesn’t allow you to see how beautiful our wood furniture truly is. Luckily for us (and for our visitors), we now have Nina working with us to get as many beautiful photos as we can of any furniture design that passes through our showroom and when possible, many that go through our craftsman’s woodshops.

Some furniture pieces with new photography by Nina:

1)  Cherry Ladderback Bookcase

2) Vermont Tavern Dining Set

3) Contemporary Craftsmen 3-Drawer Nightstand

4) Wood & Steel Bridges Bench

5) Wood & Steel Sofa Table

 

Rest assured that we are making our best effort to provide top quality photography that accurately shows the handcrafted quality of our Vermont fine furniture. Keep your eyes on the blog and on our Facebook page for new photo and furniture updates. Interested in checking out more great Vermont Furniture Photography ?
