Sunshine, warm weather, birds singing, more daylight, picnic lunches… what’s not to celebrate during Spring! So if you’re coming up to shop for furniture, bring your boots and build in a little extra time to enjoy Spring at Stonehurst. It’s beautiful! A couple things you can do here that you never thought of doing at a furniture store:
Take A Hike
Hike through our 100 acre woodland at Stonehurst. We located our sustainable furniture store here so you can experience the kind of responsibly-managed forest where your furniture originates.
Check Out the Flora & Fauna
Stonehurst is home to deer, foxes, bear, porcupines, flying squirrels, numerous birds and many other types of wildlife. This photo doesn’t look much like Spring, though does it? It was taken just after last week’s Nor’easter. Fortunately a lot has changed since then.
The daffodils and crocuses Nina planted last Fall are beginning to flower now, starting a parade of colors that will continue throughout Spring, Summer and Fall. Much of our gardening and landscaping is focused on bringing monarch butterflies back to Stonehurst and Vermont. Come see it!
Enjoy the Sights & Sounds of the Woods
Bring a picnic lunch and take a 20 minute hike back to the Stonehurst Brook. You’ll see and hear the roar of Springtime’s snowmelt bringing new life to all who dwell along the stream’s banks.
Meet the Team
Another sure sign of Spring is the presence of Ken’s and Dennis’ motorcycles in the parking lot at Stonehurst. The team is finding all sorts of ways to enjoy a few moments outside on these sunny Spring days. Our favorite excuse to get away from the computer is to enjoy a little fresh air on the back deck with a customer. So stop by and give us a reason to celebrate Spring!

Sometimes to make an improvement to a room, you don’t have to completely renovate the space. This past year, I’d been feeling very unsatisfied about my living room and dining space. Instead of completely redoing those spaces, my family replaced our cheap TV console with a wood TV cabinet. And, we replaced our maple dining table and chairs with a darker stained wood dining set that better matches the wood paneling in our dining space.
We like to think that the experience you’ll have at Vermont Woods Studios is unlike that of any furniture store you’ll shop at. There are some obvious ways we’re different, of course. For one, we’re located at an old ski-resort and farmhouse in the foothills of the Green Mountains. And being in an old farmhouse comes with its quirks–one of which is space. With the average furniture store spanning 20,000 square feet, according to a Furniture Today article (2010), our showroom space is approximately 1,500-2,000 square feet.

Pumpkin spice season is upon us! Soon it’ll be time to break out the thick sweaters, jackets and boots here in Vermont. As a native New Englander, Fall is definitely my favorite time of the year. I get to plan apple picking trips, bake lots of pie, run through piles of leaves with my black lab Charlie and watch the foliage change on my ride into work.
How One Day and One Small State Can Make a Difference
In a state with a population just over 600,000 Vermont Gives Day shows how a small group of people can make a big difference. On June 7th, the state of Vermont launched its first giving day, using social media as a way to get the message out. A simple hashtag #VTGives was found trending on Twitter and leads people to learn about this day of giving.
