Copeland Wave Collection
The Copeland Wave Collection in Parchment Maple

Riding The Sleep Waves

Picture this: You’re laying out in the sun at a beach. You’re the only person there. All you hear are the waves calmly crashing on the shore and the tall grass behind you shaking in the ocean breeze, maybe a distant sea bird cooing. The sun is warming you like a light blanket as you sway slowly in a hammock. You gently outstretch your fingertips and skim them through the warm, soft sand as you move.

Did you feel relaxed imagining that scene? And, are you someone who has trouble falling asleep at night? If you answered yes to the latter question then you’ve probably tried many different techniques to help get you to sleep. One strategy I use, is a technique in which you build a relaxing place in your mind until you fall asleep. Envisioning the beach scene as I described above always works for me!

Another way to help calm your mind is to create a relaxing bedroom environment. You’ve probably read design blogs that recommend soothing or muted wall colors, bedding free of busy designs and so on.

But have you thought about using your bedroom furniture as a way to create a calm and relaxing atmosphere for yourself?

Our new Copeland Wave Collection can help you do just that. The collection highlights a sleek, minimalist design that showcases innovative three dimensional carved faces on the case pieces and headboard of the beds. The carvings mimic the rippling effects of soft waves in water and are accentuated with metal hairpin legs or round tapered wood legs giving the contemporary design, an essence of mid century modern flair. The collection is handmade from maple hardwood and is available with two finish options.

Taking on conventional design, this collection offers you a unique bedroom set, that will not only help create a calming atmosphere but also give you a chance to showcase your creative side. Create the atmosphere you’ve been dreaming of (literally) and wake up feeling rested in our Copeland Wave Collection.

New Year Storewide Furniture Sale
Celebrate and cheers to the new year!

Start 2016 Off Right!

People love to make New Year’s Resolutions and every year a majority of those people fail to see their goals come to fruition–I know I can count myself as one of those people. But why do we set ourselves up for failure right from the start? According to a 2013 Forbes.com article, 40% of Americans make New Year’s Resolutions but only 8% achieve their goals.

Maybe it’s our need for self-improvement or an internal competitive trait that makes us set–often times–unrealistic goals for ourselves. This year why don’t we all set more tangible goals and give ourselves the chance to make a successful change in our lives.

This year I know I want to spend more time outside, but how do I measure that? My goal is going to be to complete my screened-in porch “rejuvenation” project (different from a renovation) and to create a patio where my family, friends and I can relax. (Lets check back in on those projects in the Spring).

Are your wheels turning now? Are you rethinking your 2016 goals? If you’re leaning towards a renovation or “rejuvenation” of a room then we can help!

Nightstand
Renfrew 3-Drawer Nightstand in Cherry

Don’t let a mess ruin your sleep! Stay organized with one of our handmade nightstands!

The other day I was reorganizing my bedroom when I noticed something about myself. I love to collect books, especially it appeared, on the floor around my bed. I had about half a dozen books on the floor near my nightstand, and probably another half dozen or so split between the small shelf and tabletop of my nightstand. So much space was covered in books and other small trinkets that I had barely enough space for a glass of water, my phone and glasses.

As I cleaned, finding books I forgot I had started reading in the first place, it got me thinking how much I’d love a nightstand with a drawer to hide my knick-knacks and a real shelf to house my book collection…or at least the few I’m determined to finish this year!

If you’re a hoarder of books like me, you may be looking for a versatile nightstand that offers both functionality and some storage. If you’re in search of more space for your accessories, maybe you’re looking for a nightstand that acts as an extension of your dresser or maybe you’re looking for a nightstand simply to house a lamp, book and alarm clock.

We have many nightstands to choose from, but I’ve dug through our inventory and found some that I think highlight the unique styles we offer and compliment our handmade beds.

Vermont Shaker Bedside Table: This nightstand offers one drawer and is styled with 4-sided tapered legs in a simple, yet modern Shaker design. It’s great for the minimalist at heart. while still providing storage space. It’s available in Cherry, Maple and Walnut woods and is 19” wide x 26” high x 19” deep.

black-friday
(Black Friday Sale runs Nov. 21-Nov. 28 2015)

Vermont Woods Studios is having an extended Black Friday Furniture Sale!

Ever wonder how Black Friday started? As someone who has never really participated in this massive day of shopping, I was curious this year to find out how it all began and how it got to be so big.

We all know how Thanksgiving started-Pilgrims and Native Americans came together in Plymouth, MA to celebrate a successful harvest after the harsh winters had claimed many of the unprepared colonial settlers lives. It wasn’t until 1863 and the end of the Civil War, that President Abraham Lincoln declared Thanksgiving Day a national holiday.

If we flash forward to 1939, we learn that after being petitioned, President Franklin Roosevelt and Congress declared Thanksgiving be held on the fourth Thursday in November. This move would ensure shoppers and retailers a longer holiday shopping season.

The term “Black Friday” originates from the actions of two infamous and vilified “robber barons” Jay Gould and James Fisk, who in 1869 are credited with the gold market crash. From there, we have two explanations for the term. The first being that police officers in Philadelphia coined the term from all the smog and congestion shoppers created and the second being that during the holiday season, retailers operated at a profit known as “being in the black.” It wasn’t until the 1990s though that Black Friday became a nationwide term.

As the years have progressed, the day has clearly become the mark of the commercial holiday season, with many retailers even opening their doors on Thanksgiving to get an edge on their competition. While we here at Vermont Woods Studios will be enjoying stuffed turkey and mashed potatoes with our family and friends on Thanksgiving, we will be hosting a Black Friday Sale from Saturday, November 21st through Saturday, November 28th.

During that time you will be able to save 20% off hundreds of our high quality, solid wood furniture pieces.We have a large selection of Bedroom, Living Room, Dining Room  and Home Office furniture that is available in Cherry, Maple, Oak or Walnut woods.
