"Functional beauty" is often how designers describe mid-century modern architecture and furniture styles. Check out Copeland's Audrey Dining Set, for example. It has a simple, modern, utilitarian look but it's elegant and sophisticated at the same time.
Handcrafted here in Vermont of solid American black walnut wood, the Audrey dining table has an "X" shaped trestle base that allows for maximum leg space. The chairs are streamlined and ergonomically designed for comfort.
Audrey dining room furniture is 100% made in America (here in VT actually) from sustainably harvested wood and can be customized online to best fit your dining space.

Earth Week seems like a good time to roll out Copeland Furniture's new collection of high end, eco-friendly solid wood dining chairs.
This one is Copeland's ultra minimalist (that's an oxymoron, isn't it?) Catalina Estelle chair in solid walnut wood. It brings you back to that mid century modern style of the 1950's with it's clean, simple lines and retro design.
All of Copeland's furniture is made right here in Vermont from sustainably harvested wood. Many Copeland items are available in FSC green-certified wood. You can read more about Copeland's green furniture and the many prestigious awards they have won for sustainability on our website.
Stay tuned for the roll out of additional brand new Copeland dining furniture pieces in the coming weeks. If you're looking for authentic green luxury you can't overlook Copeland. And their furniture is 100% American made. As we see all the big furniture companies talking about bringing their operations back to the USA from Asia due to global economics, it's good to know about Copeland Furniture– one of the few American furniture makers that stayed in the USA remaining true to their values of quality, sustainability and community throughout the mass exodus to China.
Copeland Furniture, just down the road from us in Bradford, Vermont is famous for it's modern, contemporary solid wood bedroom furniture. A couple years ago, Copeland introduced the new Frank Lloyd Wright® Collection of authentic reproduction prairie-style furniture designed by America's foremost architect.
Well, now Copeland is introducing another new series of high end furniture, The Catalina Walnut Dining Room Collection.
The tables, chairs and buffets are all in sync with Catalina's retro-modern shapes and sensibilities, relying on simple, elegant lines that have just enough curve– but not too much. Walnut is the only wood used for the Catalina collection and it is available in both natural wood (as shown) or in a darker slate-on-walnut stain. Dennis and Manjula are working feverishly to get all of the Catalina dining collection pieces up on our website and ready for purchase by week's end. In the meantime, if you have any questions, give us a call.
All Copeland's furniture is 100% American made, right here in Vermont.

Wood dining tables are our most popular, best selling pieces at Vermont Woods Studios Fine Furniture. Most customers come to us for solid cherry wood tables, but we also build a good number of tables in maple, walnut and oak wood too. Occasionally we get a custom order for wood tables made out of other woods, like the reclaimed barnwood farm table that Yankee Magazine is featuring in their March/April issue this year.
So why wood? I mean you could eat off a glass top table or a metal table or even a plastic table. I think for many people, wood makes an important emotional connection that maybe we're not even consciously aware of. A customer recently told me she came to us because of the natural, organic apsect of our wooden furniture. She said that trees are actually a source of spiritual sustenance and renewal for her. I was thinking about that and came across this passage about trees written by woodworker and naturalist Brian Clifford:
A tree is a thing of beauty and wonderment, huge, but full of life and movement. A deciduous tree is the embodiment of the changing seasons: a stark framework in winter, bursting life in spring, a vast green canopy in summer and the bearer of seeds and fruit in the autumn. It is the embodiment of man's condition: birth, life, death, regeneration and rebirth.
I'm not sure people choose wood for their dining and kitchen tables for reasons quite that deep, but I love reading Brian's thoughts and philosophy about the relationship between trees and man. He notes that our ancestors evolved in trees:
The period our ancestors spent in the trees was of great formative importance; this was the environment in which man's basic structures, brain, sense organs, limbs and reproductive system, evolved. In response to the exigencies of living in trees the animal's paws were modified into members able to grip: the claws atrophied, the digits lengthened, and an opposed thumb developed. The eyes became larger and moved towards the front of the head providing three-dimensional vision. In concert with these bodily changes, and their application in confronting the dangers in the tree tops, the creature's brain developed new features and increased in power.
Ha! It seems we owe our brain power to trees. I bet you never thought of that as the reason you were shopping for a wood dining table today.
We've only got Kendall for a few more days before he ditches us at Vermont Woods Studios and goes back to college after a nice long winter break. That's pretty sad because he's been cranking out the website work these last few weeks– stuff that none of the rest of us (except Manjula, of course) know how to do.
Anyway, Kendall's becoming a Facebook genie and he's set up a "Staff Picks" tab. This week he's featuring Shannon's favorite furniture, the Modern American Dining Set. It's a beautiful solid cherry table and benches– very simple but very elegant too.
Here it is all dressed up by our favorite set designer, Erica Ell. If you love it as much as Shannon does, fan us on Facebook and get an extra 5% off.

Customers have been asking us for a wider selection of sustainable Vermont made furniture so we've been travelling all around our state in search of the next furniture company to feature on our website. Last week Dennis and Douglas made a trip up to Bradford, VT to meet with Joann Phelps and the Copeland Furniture crew. We've been admiring the work of this family-owned company for many years and are proud to announce we will soon be carrying their full line of Vermont made furniture including the Frank Lloyd Wright® collection.
We're working on getting their fine furniture up on our website now and plan to have everything ready by the end of this year. In the meantime, we are already taking orders so feel free to call us and discuss your (100% American Made) Copeland Furniture needs. We thank Tim and Ben Copeland for including Vermont Woods Studios in the Copeland Furniture retailer family.
Vermont has a long history of designing and building Shaker style furniture, which is surprising to some because Vermont really wasn't a hub of the original American Shaker settlements that date back to 1774. But somehow the craftsmanship and philosophy behind Shaker furniture did take root and spread throughout Vermont during subsequent years and it is alive and well today.
We've gathered together some of the finest Shaker style furniture made in Vermont and indeed anywhere in the world. We sorted it by room:
- Shaker Bedroom Furniture
- Shaker Dining Furniture
- Shaker Living Room Furniture
- Shaker Home Office Furniture
and by style/collection:
- Vermont Shaker Furniture
- American Shaker Furniture
- Classic Shaker Furniture
- New England Shaker Furniture
- Renfrew Shaker Furniture
You'll see that the our Shaker furniture as with the originals is largely based on the concepts
of order, utility and durability. Initially the Shakers discarded any unnecessary ornament at all, focusing only on clean lines, simple form and proportion. Our furniture makers have stayed pretty close to those traditional Shaker ideals although you'll see slight embellishments here and there that serve to enhance the style and add visual appeal.
Let us know if you have any questions about our Shaker beds and night stands, Shaker chests, Shaker dressers and mirrors, Shaker armoires, Shaker china cabinets, Shaker dining tables or Shaker dining chairs.
