  1. Kids Furniture: Health and Safety Considerations

    Traditionally, we've only sold Vermont-made, solid wood furniture at Vermont Wood Studios. But when customers asked us to carry a Kids Furniture Collection, we decided to research an innovative new recycled plastic furniture called "polywood".

  2. American Made Furniture Sale - 15% Off Storewide

The only problem was that Vermont Woods Studios Furniture was not on that map.
    So I contacted ABC and requested that we be included. Low and behold... a few days later I got a call from Zach at ABC wanting to know what our company was all about. I assured him that all of our ...
