Vermont Woods Studios works with independent furniture makers in the Green Mountain State to showcase their work and offer their products to you online and through our Stonehurst showroom. Scattered across rural Vermont towns are workshops large & small where the handed-down tradition of crafting high quality, solid, functional and lasting furniture pieces continues.
Our furniture makers receive fair compensation for their considerable talent and are paid a living wage, in a safe and healthy work environment.
We work exclusively with Vermont’s finest, independent quality oriented furniture makers. Many workshops are small, family owned operations. A couple of them have grown over the years into larger manufacturers like Copeland Furniture and Lyndon Furniture, but we still work to provide gifted independent furniture makers, who are unable to afford conventional marketing channels, access to the fine furniture market. We encourage this group of passionate craftspeople, dedicated to the highest quality and style, by matching them with customers both online and at Stonehurst, our showroom.
Vermont has a long history of woodworking and for over 200 years wood products have been the most important manufacturing industry in Vermont. Vermont made furniture tends to be simple in design and strong in function while highlighting the natural beauty of wood.
Our furniture makers' workshops range in size from a single craftsman to a couple dozen to the larger companies (Copeland Furniture & Lyndon Furniture) that employ about 50-100 craftspeople each. Some furniture makers craft ultra luxury artisan custom furniture, where each of their pieces is unique, made in a small studio, usually by a single artisan, with the occasional help of an apprentice or a family member. Other craftspeople produce more classic handcrafted wood furniture designs which they make routinely at affordable prices.
If you wish to meet your furniture maker in person, give us a call. We can often make arrangements for you to visit their studios and see their work first-hand.
