Modern_incline_bedIsn't this a beautiful bed?  Our friend and colleague, Robin came out with this simple, elegant design recently and it's been our best selling bed ever since.  The headboard has a subtle incline– just enough to make it comfy for reading or watching TV in bed. 

It's shown here in natural cherry, that has had a few months to ripen and reach the rich, reddish brown color cherry is known for.  We're calling it (what else?) the Modern Incline Bed.

Thanks to the ever-talented and creative Rebecca, we are now up on Flickr.  Check out photos of the stunning collection of Vermont Made Furniture that was on display in Woodstock last month at the Vermont Fine Furniture Festival.  And see additional Vermont Made Furniture at Vermont Woods Studios in our online store.

The chest at right is a two-toned version with natural walnut for the frame, sides, drawer pulls and top and natural maple for the drawer fronts.  The chest can be done in many different combinations of maple, cherry and/or walnut. 

Looking for Vermont Cherry FurnitureHere the same chest is shown in natural cherry.  We call it the Cherry Moon Chest of Drawers.  Customize it with your favorite wood or combination of two contrasting woods!
