the recent cooler nights and the realization that Labor Day is less than 2
weeks away, we're beginning to feel that summer's end is near…well, at least
in Vermont. While we know that Labor Day doesn't technically signal
the end of summer, for many it's a symbolic end as minds begin shifting to the fall.
Before we know it, the feasting holidays will soon be here! If you're
like most, this can be the time of year where you might find yourself doing a
lot of hosting, especially in the dining room. So, perhaps it's time to think
about how to make your home feast-ready for the holidays, and it's also a good
time to consider other home improvement projects.

Since dining room furniture gets
the most use and attention during the feasting holidays, this room may be a
primary focus. In between choosing, crafting, and delivering fine wood
furniture, many weeks can slip by. Crafting fine furnishings takes time, so
planning for Thanksgiving at the end of August is actually the perfect amount
of time.

While your furniture is being
crafted perhaps there are other things that you would like to do to get your dining
room ready. For instance, painting, refinishing floors or replacing carpet,
makes sense to do before your new furniture arrives.

So we at Vermont
Woods Studios Furniture
have decided to put our fine wood dining room furniture on sale now
through August 30th! If it’s high quality, American Made, real wood furniture
you are considering then the next week is the best time to buy and save up to
20% (plus Free Shipping)! Our heirloom quality furniture features timeless
styling and sturdy construction which you can enjoy holiday after holiday with
your family for generations. Browse our online dining furniture gallery to see our
large selection of wood dining tables, dining chairs, sideboards, hutches and
buffets. Ordering now will ensure delivery before Thanksgiving and allow you
time to enjoy it before the crowds arrive!

Furniture-metrics-vtIf I'm investing a lot of money in something– say a new car, I spend a significant amount of time researching my options.  Then when I've made a decision on a particular car I continue to research everything about that model and the company that makes it. 

Well, I figure the same is true for people when they're investing in high end, handmade furniture.  But unfortunately not much performance data is available from furniture companies.  Either they don't do customer satisfaction surveys or they choose not to publish their results.  Why is that?

Although we're a small company, we've been surveying our customers since we started our business 6 years ago.  I thought I would share some of our results and performance metrics with you over the next couple weeks.  These results are taken from a survey of 130 customers who just received their new furniture over the last few months.  We received 69 customer responses for a pretty decent response rate of 53%.  The questions we asked them included:

Please rate our performance in the following areas

*  Quality of furniture
*  Ease of ordering
*  Shipping and delivery
*  Response of customer sevice personnel
*  Would you purchase from Vermont Woods Studios Furniture again?

 

Here's the link to follow the results of our customer reviews, complaints and satisfaction survey as they emerge.  Check back in now and then over the next few weeks to see what our customers are saying about their furniture.

Black-friday-previewI feel the unseasonably warm weather this month in Vermont has lulled us into a false sense of distance from the holidays. But low and behold next week is indeed Thanksgiving! And all the chaos that seems to go with that. Traveling, preparing for guests & visitor’s and of course all that cooking… Oh yeah, and not to mention getting up at 5:00 am the next morning to be first in line for all those “Black Friday” deals! Retailers have really created such a sense of urgency and drastic savings around this event that you almost feel silly doing any holiday shopping on any day but “Black Friday”! But we now also have a “Cyber Monday” for those that prefer to skip the lines and traffic and do their bargain hunting online from the comfort of their home or office.  So is this our second and final chance at big savings?

Well our idea for this years Black Friday savings event was to give you more time… more time to preview our fine wood furniture and more time to shop. To do this we have created a Black Friday Plus sales event and what is different about this event is that we are giving our customers 4 days to preview and 6 days to shop! The actual sale kicks off Wednesday November 23rd at 8:00 am and runs through midnight on Cyber Monday, November 28th.  So that’s 6 days for you to save 20% on furniture storewide, plus free delivery!*

So you can take your time the next few days to browse our online fine furniture gallery and preview at your convenience (remember to bookmark your favorite pieces).  Of course our online gallery is available 24/7 so when there’s a break in your potentially hectic schedule you can still easily catch the sale! If you happen to have questions and want to speak to our team, the only days the office will be closed will be Thanksgiving Day and the following Sunday– otherwise we are open 9am-5pm. But knowing our team I am sure someone will give at least a quick check into our emails those days! So welcome to our fine wood furniture store and Black Friday Plus event.

Here's wishing you and your family a relaxing Happy Holiday (to the extent that's possible)!

 

*  Excludes our one of a kind custom artisan furniture and Everwood outdoor furniture which is always on sale with a low price guarantee

American-wood-bed-furniture Have you ever thought about where your wood furniture comes from?  
Over the past few decades, the organic food movement has made us ask questions about the origin of our food. Now the fundamental concerns voiced in that movement are being extrapolated to the furniture and flooring industries. People want to know where their furniture comes from and what they're finding out is often more disturbing than the facts that were uncovered regarding the origins of our food.

For facts about the origin of your furniture, check out Vermont Woods Studios' latest article on American Wood Furniture and Global Forest Conservation at Ezine.
