Vermont Furniture Designs carries forward a long tradition of high quality Vermont furniture making that dates back well over 200 years. When many furniture manufacturers shifted production offshore in the later half of the 20th century, Vermont Furniture Designs stayed in the Green Mountain State.
Vermont Furniture Designs out of Winooski, Vermont was established in 1970 with the mission of creating the most beautiful and durable hardwood furniture possible. Founder Arthur Weitzenfeld transferred the business to two longtime friends and master craftsmen. Rob Bachand has served the company for almost 30 years and Adam Blaisdell for 16 years. Rob, Adam and their VFD team are renowned for blending styles from the Mission and Arts & Crafts movements with contemporary design. Their dedication to their craft results in true heirloom-quality furniture that you will pass down from one generation to the next.
As a fellow small, family owned business we salute the craftspeople at VFD and proudly offer a complete selection of their handmade solid wood furniture. We're certain you'll love and appreciate it as much as we do.
They remained steadfast in their commitment to the local community, high quality craftsmanship and outstanding design. Each beautiful piece is made to order, just for you, using eco-friendly sustainably harvested wood. VFD artisans bench-craft, using timeless techniques, such as dovetail drawers, mortise and tenon joinery and hand sanding. Each piece of wood is carefully matched for color and grain. The wood is meticulously sanded and finished with a natural oil and wax blend, which protects the piece while bringing out the color, grain, and depth of the wood and allowing it to age gracefully. Attention to detail and quality throughout the crafting process is a hallmark of VFD furniture. Their design and artistry can be transformative in any room. Here you'll find a full selection of VFD furniture including Heartwood, Loft, Cable Crossing, Burlington, Heartwood, Horizon, Larssen, Skyline, Winslow, all guaranteed for a lifetime.
We care about where our wood comes from and how it's harvested. Our friends at VFD have high standards in selecting local and regional prized hardwoods. They work in natural cherry, maple and walnut. These woods are grown sustainably here in Vermont and in neighboring states. They're valued for fine furniture making, by virtue of their exquisite color, strength, hardness and grain patterns.
Customization is easy with VFD furniture. You can use our drop down menus to select different woods and sizes for each tv stand, media console or occasional table. Give us a call if you don't see just what you're looking for. We frequently modify VFD designs to make tables longer, shorter, taller, wider, etc. We also add drawers and shelves to tables and so on. Because your furniture will be made to order, we can easily modify it to meet your needs. Complete customization is also available if you're looking for unique living room or den furniture. Vermont Furniture Designs craftspeople love to get creative. All you've got to do is ask.
