Vt-modern-pedestal-tableOur friends at Lyndon Furniture in Lyndonville, Vermont have come out with a number of exciting new solid hardwood furniture designs this year.

 

One of my favorites is this Vermont Modern Pedestal Table.  Pretty charming, don't you think? I love the quiet curves and contemporary cottage styling.

 

It's definitely a high-end piece, handmade of eco-friendly, solid organic wood: natural cherry, walnut, oak or maple. And it works well in either a formal dining room or casual kitchen.

Here's another version of it:  the rectangular table.  The shape of the table top can be customized in round, square, rectangular or oval. 

 

 

So many possibilities!  You can customize online or give Shannon a call.  And Lyndon Furniture is furniture you can feel good about.  It's eco-friendly, 100% made in America and backed by a lifetime guarantee.

Modern-shaker-furniture-bestThis week's Best Seller was our high end, Modern Shaker Furniture Collection.  Like all of our wooden furniture, this collection is handmade in Vermont of natural solid hardwoods. 

One of the nice features of Modern Shaker Furniture is that each piece can be customized online with your choice of either soft, rounded corners and edges or straight streamlined edges and eased corners. 

Whenever we're working with parents of small children, we always mention this collection as it's a kid-friendly choice with the rounded design and absence of sharp edges.  It's also just a classic Shaker design that's earned a great reputation over the years.  The Modern Shaker Furniture Collection is an eco-friendly, healthy choice for families too, with natural wood (real solid cherry, maple or walnut) and a hand-rubbed linseed oil finish that has no formaldehyde, VOCs or toxic off-gases… everything you need to get a good night's rest!

All-weather-outdoor-recycled-plastic-furnitureNo matter how worried we may be about global warming, you have to admit the early Spring weather felt pretty good today.  We put a couple of our colorful POLYWOOD chairs out in front of the office so we could soak up a few rays.

POLYWOOD all weather outdoor furniture is made from recycled plastic.  It’s hard to believe that this high end, luxury beach and patio furniture is the product of plastic milk jugs and water bottles, but it’s true!

As Earth Day approaches, we’re excited to let you know that this high end eco-friendly furniture helps to keep plastic trash out of our landfills and out of the ocean.  But don’t let the recycled, green nature of this all weather outdoor furniture fool you into thinking it’s quality is any less than the best.

It’s the only outdoor furniture I know of that is so strong, sturdy and durable it comes with a lifetime guarantee.  And because the color is infused throughout the poly lumber, there’s no need to paint, scrape or polish these Adirondack chairs, patio dining tables and chaise lounges. All weather, recycled plastic outdoor furniture that’s maintenance free and 100% made in America.  You gotta feel good about that.

Frank-Lloyd-Wright-Houses

Frank Lloyd Wright: The Houses by Alan Hess and photographer Alan Weintraub includes the famed Fallingwater, Robie House and Taliesen West.

 

 

I've always loved American architect, Frank Lloyd Wright, especially for his mastery of green design. But until recently when we started offering the Copeland collection of Frank Lloyd Wright® Furniture I had little idea of the breadth of his work.  He designed hundreds of landmark buildings and homes during a career that spanned more than 70 years. 

He really is "the greatest American architect of all time."

So it's very sad to see so many of his residential creations on the market at Save Wright.  The homes are concentrated in Illinois and California but also scattered throughout the USA from Pennsylvania to Washington to Montana.  Many are in varying states of disrepair and desperately in need of someone to restore them to their former splendor.

Are you, by chance looking for a world-class landmark to call home?  Well, even if you're not spend some time browsing through Save Wright.  Who knows?  Maybe you'll fall in love with something you can't resist and then become a part of saving America's history.  How cool would that be?

Copeland-monterey-bed

Copeland Furniture's Monterey Bed is Made in America

We've been offering Copeland's American made (actually Vermont made) bedroom furniture for over 2 months now.  Because each piece is hand made to order, it's taken awhile to get the furniture crafted, shipped and installed in our customers' homes.  But the first several bedroom sets are being delivered and customers are starting to contact Shannon with their reactions:

"BEAUTIFUL! It is extremely well made, extremely easy to put together and is a stunning addition to my home. My handyman, who has put furniture together for more than 20 years, couldn't stop commenting on how beautiful the bed was and how amazingly simple it was to put together. I love the bed and I love that it was made in America!"

~Barbara F, NJ

Thanks Barbara! We're extremely happy to hear this kind of positive review from our customers and are delighted to know they are sleeping better on their new handmade American furniture from Vermont Woods Studios.
