Exeter Collection: Out with the old and in with the newest in dining furniture.
Who says a table has to have four straight legs? We don’t. And, we’re happy the craftspeople behind Copeland Furniture agree. Our idea of table design is really put to the test with the new Copeland Exeter Collection.
Mad Men may be over, but mid century modern furniture is still widely popular.
From fashion to furniture and everything in-between there’s no denying the influence AMC’s hit show Mad Men had on the American people. Whether you liked or loathed Don Draper, rooted for Peggy Olson or had a love/hate relationship with Pete Campbell I bet the show either brought you back to those times or suddenly had you wishing everyone still dressed that way.
While I certainly wouldn’t want culture to go back to the 1960s, I’ve found that I do have an affinity for mid century modern inspired furniture and design. What exactly is mid century modern you ask? According to a Curbed feature story, mid century modern describes architecture, furniture and graphic design from the middle of the 20th century (arguably the time between 1947-1957).
When I first started going through our bedroom collections, I was instantly drawn to our Copeland Catalina Modern Bedroom Furniture. With mid century influence and walnut wood, I felt like the Catalina Platform Bed was calling my name. It has clean and sleek lines, a low profile and minimalist style. Perfect for someone looking for something both contemporary and “mod”.

Maple furniture is making a comeback! For many years, cherry has been our customers’ favorite hardwood but in 2015 we’re seeing that maple wood is giving cherry a run for the money. This is a welcome trend for those of us in the Vermont forestry community since maple is a hardwood that grows extremely well in the Green Mountain state (indeed maple is the Vermont state tree). It’s sustainably harvested nearby, making it a great choice for eco-friendly furniture.
Although maple furniture is beautiful on it’s own, many customers are dressing it up with walnut or cherry wood accents. One example of this design is in Copeland Furniture’s Modern SoHo bedroom furniture collection. The picture above shows SoHo in maple and walnut wood but it is made to order and can also be customized in all maple wood.
Nearly all of our furniture at Vermont Woods Studios can be customized in maple wood, regardless of the wood it’s shown in on our website. This photo was sent to us by Margot G in Knoxville, Tennessee. Margo created her own unique version of our Classic Shaker Hunt Board by choosing maple wood (rather than cherry) and accenting it with a walnut top and walnut drawer pulls. It’s beautiful, don’t you think?
Another example of modern maple furniture is the Astrid bedroom furniture collection (shown above). Astrid is dramatic and sophisticated. It’s been a favorite of contemporary urban dwellers from Manhattan to Los Angeles.
Check out our website for more examples of modern maple furniture. Use the drop-down menus to customize your wood choices online. If you don’t see exactly what you want, give us a call and we’ll talk about further customization. It’s more affordable than you might think.
We received a customer photo and review about our walnut bedroom furniture from Jim and Carol E of Fullerton, California:
Thank you for the beautiful, custom made King-size, Walnut Patti Smith wide slat bed. It was delivered to our home today by the top-notch staff (J.R. & Rick) of White Glove Delivery Service. We are appreciative that J.R. & Rick were quite helpful and took great care to not only the new bed but also our home as part of their delivery service. The mattress and box springs bed frame work perfectly with our new Ortho mattress.
Walnut is a huge trend in furniture this year and since so many customers are interested in it, I thought I’d post a few more photos and links to articles we’ve written.
