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 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!"

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.

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.

Coffee-conversation-tables

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.
