“Natural Beauty” Article in Vermont Magazine

We’re over the moon today, reading the beautiful article that Benjamin Lerner wrote about Vermont Woods Studios VWS in Vermont Magazine.  Ben has really captured the essence of who we are and what we stand for at VWS. He had interviewed me last November and given me a chance to tell some of the stories that brought VWS to life. In addition, Ben must have poured through our website and blogs because he found details I had long ago forgotten. To round out the article, our Creative Director, Nina Markiw contributed photos of our furniture and our Stonehurst showroom. I hope you’ll enjoy reading Ben’s article and maybe even be inspired to pay us a visit.

About Benjamin Lerner

It turns out, Benjamin Lerner’s great grandfather is Irving Berlin (think “White Christmas”, “God Bless America” and “Blue Skies”).  That may explain Ben’s talent at the keyboard– he was a classical piano prodigy at an early age.  Ben is now a radio host, writer, composer, musician and recovery advocate.  In his early 20s however, he was an addict. Now sober since June 13, 2016, Ben shares his journey to sobriety via classical piano and rap songs. If you need some inspiration, check out Ben Lerner’s amazing story on his website.

She is a CEO who brakes for salamanders, has bottle-fed rescued squirrels and spent her vacation building furniture for a rural school in Costa Rica. She believes in the future and in the people who will build it. A former distance-learning professor at Tulane University with a master’s in environmental health & safety, she turned an interest in forest conservation and endangered species into a growing, local business. She delivers rainforest statistics at breakneck speed, but knows how to slow down and appreciate the beauty of a newly finished piece of heirloom furniture.
