Are you using Pinterest yet?  I know it might seem overwhelming to sign up for yet another social media account, but this is one I think you'll really love. 

Pinterest makes bookmarks and favorites obsolete.  Now you can do all that visually and intuitively on Pinterest.

Check out our new Cherry Wood Furniture Pinterest board.  We've selected great photos of cherry furniture from our website and many others to illustrate what natural cherry actually looks like.

One of the things I love is that you can see at a glance all the different shades of natural cherry as it's in the ripening process.

You'll notice too that each piece of cherry furniture is Made in the USA, another good clue when looking for real cherry wood furniture.  Learn more about cherry wood, it's unique characteristics and color variations at Vermont Woods Studios Fine Furniture.

Copeland's Frank Lloyd Wright® Coonley Coffee Tables

 

Do you find yourself eating dinner in front of the fireplace or TV more these days?  One of the Top 10 Trends in Furniture for 2012 is the move towards large custom coffee tables.  Why is that?

I know at my house, if the boys are home, we eat at the kitchen table. But if it's just Ken and me we sit down on the couch and use the coffee table instead.  It's casual and comfy and relaxing.

The large square coffee tables can fit up to 6 or 8 people around them.  They're great for playing cards or setting drinks and snacks on or even just putting your feet up on after a long day.

Check out some of the new coffee tables we've recently added to our store.  Most are available in solid cherry, maple, walnut, oak or reclaimed barnwood and can be customized to fit your space– large or small.  Give Rebecca and Shannon a call to learn more.

Custom-furniture-fast

Custom furniture "fast" is really an oxymoron.  I mean, one of the nicest things about owning custom furniture is the knowlegedge that is was built carefully, just for you.  Not that it was slapped together fast.

 

So in the world of handmade custom furniture, "fast" is a relative term.  

Our new Copeland Furniture collection is perhaps the "fastest" furniture we can deliver with a lead time of about 5-8 weeks.  Typically it takes Copeland up to 6 weeks to complete the crafting of your furniture then, depending on where you live, it takes another 1-3 weeks to get your furniture safely to your doorstep and installed in your home.

So is it worth waiting for?  Check out our customer Testimonials to see.  And consider too, that with handmade, custom furniture you're buying something you're going to have for the rest of your life.  We hope you'll think it's worth the wait.

Vt-furniture-world

The shaded countries are those that have visited our website over the last 80 days. Only 7 countries have not.

 

The other day, Dennis mentioned that our Vermont Sustainable Furniture website has been visited by people in almost ever country in the world. How cool is that?  I couldn't resist having a look at our analytics program to see which countries have yet to discover Vermont's Fine Furniture. 

So… of the planet's 196 countries, it appears there are 7 that we've yet to reach: Turkmenistan, Gabon, Central African Republic, Chad, South Sudan, Mauritiana, Papua New Guinea.

I'm not sure what to do with this information but it was fun to see how far the Internet has spread the word about a tiny group of fine furniture makers nestled in the foothills of Vermont's Green Mountain Forest.

Vt-furniture-sustainable

Naturally, as wood furniture makers, we at Vermont Woods Studios Fine Furniture have to be concerned about forest conservation.  It's the foundation of our company's viability.

Although our Green Mountain Forests in Vermont are healthy and sustainable we know that, from a global perspective deforestation is the Number 1 environmental problem on our planet today.  Deforestation is a huge contributor to global warming, climate change, air pollution (carbon and other emissions from slash and burn practices), habitat loss, biodiversity loss, pollution of marine habitats (due to run-off from pesticides and fertilizers used to transform diverse forests into mono-cultured plantations) and more.

So at Vermont Woods Studios, we are working with The Nature Conservancy in support of their Plant A Billion Trees project.  We plant one tree for every order we fulfill and we support many non-profits dedicated to forest conservation.

We appreciate your concern for the environment.  When you buy wood furniture from us, you can rest assured that the forest where your furniture began it's life, will still be around for generations to come.  As will your furniture!
