Vermont Woods Studios Owner Featured on Popular News StationAugust 8, 2012
Peggy Farabaugh of Vermont Woods Studios was Recently Interviewed for a News Story on WCAX.
Vernon, VT – WCAX, a local TV news station covering Vermont, New York and New Hampshire, featured an interview with Peggy Farabaugh, owner of Vermont Woods Studios, during a piece on Wi-Fi availability at Vermont welcome centers.
"I like to make frequent visits to check in with our craftsman and see some of the furniture that our customers order before it is delivered," said Peggy Farabaugh when asked about her experience with Vermont’s welcome center Wi-Fi. "The free Wi-Fi has enabled me to do that."
As the owner of a growing Vermont fine furniture company, part of Peggy's responsibilities include driving throughout the state to meet and visit with affiliated craftsman. In order to stay in touch with her office work while traveling to these meetings, Peggy stops in and uses the free Wi-Fi at welcome centers to check email and make phone calls.
Earlier this year, Vermont was looking for ways to reduce expenses during tough times, so the free Wi-Fi services were close to being cut. Luckily, Al Levy of Route 802 cellphone apps stepped in and picked up the almost $40,000 a year Wi-Fi bill. Route 802 is a digital media company that features a growing network of mobile-optimized applications to provide user-friendly, location-based resources that engage and connect communities with relevant local content and next generation marketing tools.
"We are now living in a digital age where people interact with the web on a daily basis," says Farabaugh. "So it's no wonder that people are turning to the internet to browse for furniture. The days of needing to go to a store to shop are disappearing. Now, shoppers nationwide can purchase furniture made in Vermont, a state quickly becoming known as the fine furniture capital of our country, right from the comfort of their own homes. And thanks to Route 802, Vermonters can even peruse our Website while on the road."

American Made Cherry Furniture Sale Honors American PresidentsFebruary 15, 2011
Legend has it that when President George Washington was a little boy, he chopped down his father's favorite cherry tree. When interrogated, young Washington admitted his mistake, saying "I cannot tell a lie" and all was forgiven due to the honest response.
In honor of Washington's act of integrity, the folks at of Vermont Woods Studios Fine Furniture are having a Presidents Day Sale where all cherry furniture is priced at 15% off. "American cherry is our most popular wood for furniture", noted co-owner, Peggy Farabaugh "and we’re excited to be able to offer it to our customers at a substantial discount on President's Day. The fact that our furniture is 100% American made is another benefit, on this patriotic day, to customers who are interested in helping our country’s economy."

Vermont Fine Furniture Sale Supports Heifer InternationalFebruary 14, 2011
From the Green Mountain Forest of Vermont comes some of the world's most eco-friendly fine wooden furniture. "Vermont has long been known for a tradition of making natural, sustainable furniture, due in part to an abundance of native hardwoods in our state," said Peggy Farabaugh, owner of Vermont Woods Studios Fine Furniture in Vernon, VT.
"Through our work with sustainable forestry in Vermont we’ve come to know that global deforestation is perhaps the number one environmental issue of our time," said Farabaugh. "Being woodworkers who rely on the forest, we've made it our mission to support sustainable forestry initiatives in areas of the globe where they are most needed."
The Vermont based furniture company has forged several partnerships with non-profits dedicated to forest conservation, both locally in Vermont and world-wide. "Although Heifer International is best known for it's work to end world hunger and poverty it is deeply committed to caring for the earth, with an emphasis on rainforest conservation. That's where our two missions meet and we are excited to support their work in this area" said Farabaugh.
Thus on Wednesday, February 15, 2012 Vermont Woods Studios Fine Furniture will sponsor a benefit sale where 50% of the profits from all furniture sales will be donated to Heifer International to support replanting of the rainforest.
The fundraiser is designed to raise awareness about how consumption of forest products, particularly wood furniture, drives global deforestation. "Most of the furniture sold in the USA today is made overseas from wood that is harvested illegally from poor nations which cannot afford to effectively police their forests. This fundraiser is an opportunity for America's green consumers to buy eco-friendly wood furniture and use their purchasing power to help change the world," said Farabaugh.

Vermont Furniture Company’s “Made in America Holiday Shopping” To Be Featured on ABC World NewsNovember 29, 2011
"Last week we got a call from Christine Brozyna at ABC's World News asking how our Made in America Holiday Shopping Challenge is going," said Peggy Farabaugh, co-owner at Vernon-based Vermont Woods Studios furniture store. Christine explained that we have been selected to appear on Diane Sawyer's Made in America series on November 30.
ABC sent a camera crew to our showroom in Vernon last Tuesday to do a nightly news story on how the community is "buying American" and "buying local" this holiday season.
"We invited all Vernon residents to participate in the filming. ABC's producers and camera crew filmed at all the familiar hang-outs in town: the School House General Store, the Town Hall, the Portside Tavern, the Firehouse, the elementary school and of course at the local furniture maker's workshop, Woodruff Custom Furniture. A couple large crowd scenes were filmed along with several interviews of local residents.
"It was an opportunity to have a national news program show our town’s support for buying American-made and locally-made gifts this Christmas season. We're asking everyone to help create American jobs this way and to get counted in that effort by joining our Made in America Holiday Gift Buying Challenge on Facebook.
"Using ABC's statistics, we calculated that if everyone in the USA "bought American" during the holidays, it could add almost 5 million jobs to our national economy. We're trying to help people see how big a difference they can make with their wallets."
The segment is scheduled to air on ABC World News on Wednesday, November 30 at 6:30pm.
Vermont Fine Furniture Sale Supports The Nature ConservancyNovember 9, 2011
Vermont has long been known for a tradition of fine wood furniture making, largely due to an abundance of hardwoods in the Green Mountain State which is 80% forested. But purveyors of the eco-friendly wood furniture at Vermont Woods Studios are not just concerned about sustainable forestry in their local area. "Although our own forests in Vermont are among the best managed in the world, we are well aware that globally one of the most critical environmental problems facing us today is deforestation," said co-owner Peggy Farabaugh. "The world's rainforests are rapidly disappearing, at a rate of one football field every second. This deforestation pours carbon dioxide into the atmosphere and contributes more to air pollution and global climate change than exhaust from the entire transportation sector. Furthermore, forest animals and plants are being lost at a rate of over 100 species/day due to deforestation." Vermont Woods Studios Fine Furniture has joined forces with The Nature Conservancy and its Plant A Billion Trees Campaign to support the replanting of the rainforest. On Saturday November 12, 100% of the profits from all furniture sold at their online fine furniture store will be donated to The Nature Conservancy.
The fundraiser is designed to raise awareness about how consumption of forest products, particularly wood furniture, drives global deforestation. "Most of the furniture sold in the USA today is made overseas from rainforest woods like mahogany, teak, eucalyptus and rubber wood. This fundraiser is an opportunity for America's eco-conscious consumers to buy locally made, eco-friendly wood furniture and use their knowledge and purchasing power to help change the world."

Hundreds of Vermont families are still in desperate need of assistance.
Vermont Woods Studios Furniture is sponsoring a Hurricane Relief Fundraiser by donating 100% of profits from all furniture sold online or in their showroom on Saturday, September 17. Funds raised will be donated to the Vermont Disaster Relief Fund.
"Our thoughts and concerns are with our fellow Vermont residents and businesses as they face the challenges of rebuilding their homes and communities," said Peggy Farabaugh, co-owner of Vermont Woods Studios. "At Vermont Woods Studios we were fortunate to be spared the destruction experienced by so many and as a company we are eager to contribute to the relief efforts now in place for those impacted. Our craftspeople are scattered throughout the state", continued Farabaugh, "and while none have been directly impacted they have shared stories of their surrounding communities who have lost homes, roads and businesses."
This fundraiser is an opportunity for American's interested in helping Vermonter's who have been impacted by Irene to purchase handcrafted Vermont-made fine furniture while giving to those the many who have lost everything and are in need of assistance in rebuilding their futures.

Modern VT. Furniture Lines Coincident with “Made in America” Trend Means More Jobs for VermontersApril 7, 2011
Three new lines of modern Vermont-made furniture are being rolled out at Vermont Woods Studios just in time to coincide with the nationwide wave of interest in "American Made" goods. "The timing is serendipitous," according to co-owner Ken Farabaugh "as we have been working on launching these furniture collections for several months. Nonetheless, the "Made in America" trend is bringing us greater traffic and is translating to more furniture industry jobs for Vermonters. That's something that is well overdue", said Farabaugh.
"We have a long tradition of craftsmanship and sustainability in Vermont's extensive network of furniture makers and now is an opportune time for us to tell the world about it. With some 2000+ small woodworking businesses in our state, Vermont has become the Fine Furniture Capital of America. Woodworkers are excited about the opportunity the "Made in America" trend is bringing them to grow their businesses and provide more jobs for Vermonters."
Photos and information about Modern Shaker, Modern American & Contemporary Craftsman furniture lines being launched this week can be found on the Vermont Woods Studios website.
Kids Furniture: Health and Safety Criteria Drive Selection of New CollectionMarch 8, 2011
Vermont Woods Studios, purveyor of American made contemporary solid wood furniture has recently launched a line of recycled plastic, "poly wood" indoor-outdoor children's furniture.
"Health and safety concerns trumped all others when we reached the final decision point regarding which line of kid-friendly furniture to carry," announced co-owner Ken Farabaugh. "Traditionally we have offered exclusively solid wood furniture, but considering the special needs and vulnerabilities of small children we decided in the end to go with poly wood. It's excellent health and safety rating, strong and sturdy design and the non-toxic nature of the product were compelling."
"Most children's furniture found in American stores today is imported from overseas where there is little regulation of health, safety and toxicity. That's why we see product recalls for things like toxic lead and cadmium levels in paint finishes and failure of cheap moving parts. At Vermont Woods Studios we wanted to carry an American made collection of kids indoor-outdoor furniture that would exceed US health and safety regulations," stated Farabaugh.
Vermont Woods Studios' contemporary Poly Wood Kids Furniture Collection has several advantages other than health and safety: it is well-designed, sturdy, colorful, weatherproof, maintenance-free and stylish. Polywood Childrens' Adirondack chairs and picnic tables can be customized online in a variety of 12 vibrant colors and carry a lifetime guarantee as well as a low-price guarantee.
VT Furniture Co. Introduces Luxury Poly-Wood Outdoor Furniture Made From Recycled Plastic BottlesMarch 7, 2011
The sustainable furniture crusaders at Vermont Woods Studios have added "Poly-Wood" an innovative new brand of outdoor patio furniture to their product line. Their extensive collections of luxury, high end patio chairs, tables, chaise lounges, bar furniture and rockers are all made from recycled plastic bottles that would normally be sent to the landfill. Instead they are transformed into a durable, heavy and rigid board stock. Traditional solid wood colors and textures are offered in Poly-Wood, as well as an array of vibrant colors including blue, teak, tangerine, red, sand, mahogany, lime, lemon, green, black, aruba and white.
Unlike traditional outdoor teak wood, the new generation of Poly-Wood furniture does not degrade when exposed to rain, snow, ice, sun, salt water, insects, mold or mildew. "I guess that's not surprising given that scientists estimate the plastic bottles themselves will take over 400 years to biodegrade," noted Vermont Woods Studios representative, Dennis Shanoff. "Vermont Woods Studios is the only company that I know of that carries a lifetime guarantee on Poly-Wood outdoor furniture -- thanks to the virtually indestructible nature of plastic."
Mr. Shanoff noted that Americans use 2.5 million plastic bottles every hour, most of which are thrown away. "Plastic garbage thrown into the ocean kills an estimated 1 million sea creatures every year. Poly-Wood furniture is not only an ingenious solution to the problem of plastics disposal, it's also well-designed, stylish furniture that people will enjoy for many years."
Customers can learn more about Poly-Wood outdoor patio furniture online at VermontWoodsStudios.com. The website offers several buyer-protection policies including free shipping, a lifetime guarantee and a low-price guarantee.
Vermont Eco Furniture Company Launches Sustainable Bedroom Furniture Line to Help Save The TigerMarch 1, 2011
Vermont Woods Studios, a high end eco furniture company in Vermont is launching a new Contemporary Craftsman Furniture Collection in support of the worldwide campaign to save critically endangered tigers.
"How you furnish your home affects my home" is the tagline beneath a stunning image of a 600 pound Siberian tiger, cleverly photo-shopped into the latest handcrafted bedroom furniture collection from the Vermont furniture maker.
According to Farabaugh furniture buyers can help save the tiger by avoiding the purchase of imported wood furniture and buying American made furniture instead. "America has some of the world's best quality hardwoods and our US forest conservation laws are working to keep it that way. In Vermont our forests are growing at a rate that is faster than the harvest rate-- certainly an important part of the definition of sustainability."
The high end Contemporary Craftsman Furniture Collection has a distinct Arts and Crafts style with clean lines and gentle curves. Beds, dressers, chests, armoires and night stands can be customized online in solid natural cherry wood, natural walnut wood or a two-tone combination of the woods. Each piece of Vermont Woods Studios furniture is hand made to order in Vermont so additional types of customization are also available.

Vermont Woods Studio launches local press tour to promote latest furniture linesNovember 19, 2010
Vermont's economy has always depended on the hard work and dedication of its small businesses. From agricultural improvements of the 19th century to modern-day software innovators, the state has a solid reputation as a home for entrepreneurs.
And in the Yankee-spirit of environmentally-friendly businesses, Vermont Woods Studios offers the finest furniture and craftsmanship in the country with a distinctive style and a lifetime guarantee.
An online retailer of fine Vermont-made furniture, this Vernon business has blossomed into a nationwide retailer of natural, eco-friendly solid wood furniture inspired by the breathtaking Green Mountains.
"Vermont has a long history of woodworking, as well as an abundance of premium hardwoods for our craftsmen to use in order to create beautiful, high-quality furniture that will last a lifetime," said Peggy Farabaugh, co-owner of Vermont Woods Studios. "More than 70 percent of our state is forested with prized hardwoods, and our customers are searching for that sustainably harvested product whether it be our remarkable Maple tables or our luxurious Cherry bed frames."
Peggy and her husband Ken started the business in 2005 to offer the finest furniture crafted and produced in Vermont. Today, the company employs 5-to-10 Vermonters and works directly with 15 of the state's finest furniture makers.
Although Vermont Woods Studios was established as a way to showcase the world-class talent of independent furniture makers, the Farabaughs have a strong commitment to preserving the rainforests, where the equivalent of a football field is lost every second with the resultant lumber being used in flooring and furniture.
Now the couple has created an online community of eco-friendly furniture dedicated to the beauty and quality of their products, but also the preservation of the natural environment.
"Vermont Woods Studios began when a talented group of furniture markers, working independently from small work spaces scattered across Vermont, came together to share a passion for both an excellence in craftsmanship and promoting sustainable forestry," Farabaugh said.
Vermont Woods Studios also has a donation program where a portion of the proceeds go to organizations involved with forest and wildlife conservation such as World Wildlife Fund, the Vermont Center for Eco Studies, The Nature Conservancy and Vermont Family Forests.
During their five years operating Vermont Woods Studios, the Farabaughs' business has been featured locally in the Brattleboro Reformer, and has made waves nationally in The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, Fox News and The Weather Channel.
