Spotlight on Georgie Runkle

Last updated on August 15th, 2018 at 04:29 pm

Georgie Runkle | Vermont Plein Air Painter
Surrounded by her favorite paintings, Georgie works in her studio on the days that just don’t lend themselves to plein air.  We asked our friend Shane McFalls at Mondo Mediaworks of Brattleboro to film Georgie as part of our video about the artists and furniture makers featured at Vermont Woods Studios.

Vermont’s Beloved Plein Air Painter

One of our favorite Vermont artists is Georgie Runkle.  Georgie’s a plein air painter– she loves to be outside painting the scenes she comes across that speak to her heart. You may see her along Vermont’s rural by-ways painting a covered bridge, an old barn, a general store or a grand old home with rockers on a wrap-around porch.

National Wildlife Federation Certifies Vermont Woods Studios

Last updated on August 14th, 2018 at 01:44 pm

The National Wildlife Federation NWF, America’s largest wildlife conservation and education organization designated Vermont Woods Studios a Certified Wildlife Habitat® as part of their ‘Garden for Wildlife’ program. We founded Vermont Woods Studios as a vehicle to raise awareness about where your furniture comes from. Customers purchasing furniture at a big box store are usually unaware that their furniture is often made with wood that was illegally clear cut from from wildlife habitats in developing countries with no effective conservation programs. At Vermont Woods Studios, we promote & sell Vermont made furniture as an alternative for people seeking fine furniture from sustainable sources.  We’re grateful to NWF and our wonderful customers for their support of this achievement.

Spotlight on Hubbardton Forge

Cirque Chandelier | Hubbardton Forge Lighting
Reminiscent of a loosely closed flower blossom, the Cirque Chandelier holds a small candelabra bulb nestled inside each petal-like section. This unique design allows for a zen-like illumination to be cast on its surrounds while offering an alluring focal point for any room in your home.

A Tour of the Forge

How to Choose the Perfect Adirondack Chair

Last updated on August 14th, 2018 at 03:49 pm

Adirondack Chairs | Polywood
Why Polywood? We have a thing about longevity and keeping stuff out of the landfill. Polywood is the only outdoor furniture we can confidently offer a lifetime guarantee for. Plus it’s made of recycled milk jugs– 500 in each chair. So instead of buying furniture that’s made from illegal rainforest wood, you’re keeping plastic waste out of our landfills. How awesome are you?

Summertime & the Livin’ Is Easy

June is here and you’ve never been so happy to put all those April & May showers behind you. It’s time to sit outside and relax in the sun with a cold drink and a good book. If you don’t already have a comfy Adirondack chair, it’s time to get one. There’s tons of them out there so here’s a quick guide to help you find the one that’s just right for you.
