Spotlight on Shaker

Shaker Furniture from Our Friends at Vermont Furniture Designs

Who’s been making incredible Shaker style furniture in Vermont for almost 50 years?  It’s the talented craftsmen and women at Vermont Furniture Designs VFD in Winooski. VFD was born in 1970 with the mission of creating the most beautiful and durable hardwood furniture possible. Once you see their work and run your hands across the baby-soft surface of their wood, I think you’ll agree with me – they’ve succeeded!

The Modern Shaker high footboard bed and matching 8 drawer dresser are available in cherry, maple, walnut or a combination of 2 woods. VFD furniture is all made to order just for you, so it can be customized if needed.

Master Craftsmen

Arthur Weitzenfeld was the original owner and founder of VFD but he recently transferred the business to Rob Bachand.  Rob’s a master craftsman who’s been with the company nearly 30 years.  Rob and the VFD team are known for blending Mission and Arts & Crafts styles with contemporary design.  Shaker style furniture in a modern loft apartment… it’s gorgeous!

 

 Woodland Dining Table and Grand Mission Dining Chairs
Nina snapped this beautiful photo of the Woodland Dining Table and Grand Mission Dining Chairs. The table is brand new and the cherry wood hasn’t had a chance to ripen (darken in color) yet. With exposure to light, the color of the table will become the same as that of the chairs (it usually takes a couple months).

Heirloom Quality
