Congrats to Wall Goldfinger: Maker of America’s Finest Luxury Office Furniture

September 12th, 2012 by Peggy Farabaugh

 

Situation-room-luxury-corporate-office-furniture

Vermont company, Wall Goldfinger is America's premier luxury office furniture maker, supplying custom desks (averaging $200,000 each) to the most powerful board rooms in the world, from the White House situation room to the New York Stock Exchange.

Remember that movie, "A River Runs Through It" with Brad Pitt?  Well that pretty much sums up the story of Wall Goldfinger a year ago when Hurricane Irene ravaged through Vermont devestating hundreds of homes and businesses. 

WallGoldfinger sat along the Dog River which jumped it's banks, blew out their back door and filled the shop with 7 feet of water in just 10 minutes. Imagine a river– all of a sudden being re-routed through your workshop!

So today we're sending congratulations out to our friends and fellow furniture makers at this premier luxury office furniture company in Randolf, Vermont. They have risen from the ashes and emerged bigger, better and stronger than before.  How inspiring!

Check out Wall Goldfinger on the web or view a video about their story on Vermont's WCAX TV.

Editor's note:  If you're looking for high end office furniture but you're not calling from the White House or Wall Street, you might have a look at the luxury home office furniture collections at Vermont Woods Studios.  Here you'll find the same impeccable Vermont craftsmanship but on a decidedly smaller scale.

Lyndon-furniture-real-solid-wood

Lyndon's craftspeople are committed to preserving the heritage of American furniture making by combining the best of old world construction techniques and new world precision.

Lyndon Furniture has been crafting beautiful fine furniture from real, solid hardwoods for over 30 years and it's become one of our "best value" lines at Vermont Woods Studios.  Customers looking for honest, hand crafted furniture that's made of all real, solid wood (without veneers) are drawn to Lyndon. 

Their craftspeople are committed to preserving the heritage of American furniture making by combining the best of old world construction techniques and new world precision.  What they achieve is an authentic product that's stylish, affordable and designed to last a lifetime.

Lyndon works with local and regional hardwoods, primarily cherrywood, maple, walnut and oak.  In addition to making their tables, chairs and beds with all solid wood, Lyndon also constructs their case goods (china cabinets, bookcases, dressers, chests, nightstands and armoires) with solid wood, whereas most manufacturers use veneers on case sides.  The only place you'll find veneer on Lyndon pieces is on the backs of case goods and bottoms of drawers– that's to provide for wood movement during changing humidity.

If all solid wood construction is important to you when shopping for handmade furniture, check out Lyndon Furniture on our website.  We carry the full line of their products, including customizations and complete custom design.  We welcome your questions and specialty orders.

Craftsman Style Furniture: Vermont’s Making America’s Premiere Designs

July 29th, 2012 by Peggy Farabaugh

 

Craftsman-furniture

Over the last 25 years Vermont has become one of America's premiere Craftsman style furniture producers.  This is Copeland Furniture's Frank Lloyd Wright Barrel Chair.

Vermont craftsmen are known for their quality products and attention to fine detail.  This has long been well recognized in our Shaker style furniture, but over the last 25 years Vermont has also become one of America's premiere Craftsman style furniture producers.

 

By way of background, Craftsman Style Furniture grew out of the Arts and Crafts movement promoted by Gustav Stickley and his family.  In the early 1900s Stickley and fellow period designers like Greene and Greene, Roycroft and Limbert created a renaissance of honest workmanship and honest designs in their furniture.

In contrast to designers of the preceding Victorian era, they rejected the cheaply made, mass-produced, ornate factory furniture of the time.  They believed that beauty does not come from ornamentation, but from sturdy construction, simplicity of purpose, and optimal presentation of nature’s materials.

Well, it turns out that over 100 years after the Arts and Crafts movement, Vermont furniture makers continue to remain true to it's values of simple elegance.  For a look at some examples of Vermont style Craftsman Furniture, visit our website to view our Frank Lloyd Wright collection, Contemporary Craftsman Collection, Cherry Moon Furniture Collection, Copeland Berkeley Collection, Copeland Monterey Collection, Northup Craftsman Furniture Collection, American Mission Furniture Collection and Modern Mission Furniture Collection.

Aint Nothin’ Like The Real Thing

July 16th, 2012 by Peggy Farabaugh

Vt-furniture-logoThey say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery but it's still frustrating to see people take your work, copy it and sell it as their own.  Unfortunately the Internet has made that a full time job for many companies around the globe. 

The latest copycat we've come across is a company calling themselves American Eco Furniture.  See any similarities in our logos?  Our Vermont Woods Studios logo (above) has three trees made with thumbprints to signify the handcrafted nature of our furniture. The trunk on each tree is unique to convey that our furniture makers are independent, with their own styles, designs and crafting techniques. Our American made furniture is carefully handcrafted in Vermont of solid, sustainably harvested wood.  It's guaranteed for a lifetime.  It truly is the real thing.

 

 

Scam-american-eco-furniture

They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery but it's still frustrating to see people take your work, copy it and try to sell it as their own.  Contrary to the information on their website, most of the furniture sold by this copycat is neither eco-friendly nor American made.

 

By contrast, most of the furniture sold by this company is neither American made nor eco friendly.

 

It turns out that we can have attorneys go after this company (and the many others like it) but I'm not sure we can afford to take our focus off making Vermont Woods Studios best in it's class– in order to chase them down.  It's kind of like that "Whack-A Mole" game.  New scams just keep popping up.

I can't help humming that old song by Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell.  Remember it?  Ain't Nothin Like The Real Thing, Baby.

So I just have to hope consumers aren't getting us confused with the fly-by-nights.  In talking with our customers we've learned they typically spend 3-4 months shopping and researching before they make an investment in American handmade furniture.  I think that's what it takes anymore to make sure you're getting the real thing. 

What do you think?  Drop us a line in the comments section below or on our Facebook.  We love hearing from you!

July 11th, 2012 by Peggy Farabaugh

 

Copeland-storage-beds

Copeland's Horizon Modern Storage Bed features four sturdy drawers and an optional bench-footboard.  The night stand is designed to allow room to pull the drawers out.  Bed is shown in a dark chocolate stain.  It's also available in natural maple or maple with light colored stains.

Our friends at Copeland Furniture in Bradford, Vermont have come out with what I think is America's best selection of storage beds.  Apparently our customers agree because these platform beds with under-bed storage were our best sellers last week.

Perfect for apartment or condo living Copeland's modern beds are designed for both comfort and style.  This one, the Horizon Bed is shown in a dark chocolate stain over maple wood although several lighter stain colors are also available. 

Each piece in the Horizon bedroom furniture collection is handmade in Vermont with solid, sustainably harvested maple wood and carries our Vermont Woods Studios Lifetime Guarantee.

Copeland offers several other storage bed designs including the Berkeley Storage Bed, the Monterey Storage Bed, the Dominion Storage Bed and the Harbor Island Storage Bed.  These American made platform beds literally do the heavy lifting when it comes to under-bed storage and customers appreciate the high quality and craftsmanship that's become synonymous with Copeland Furniture's brand.  We think you will too!
