Vermont Woods Studios
Vermont Woods Studios is a collection of furniture makers who work independently from small studios & workshops scattered across the state of Vermont. Together, they produce American-made furniture crafted with eco-friendly solid hardwoods. Vermont Woods Studios strives to source their hardwoods within 500 miles of the studios. This reduces carbon emissions from transportation and ensures that the wood comes from well-managed forests. They use FSC certified lumber or some of the artisans selectively harvest lumber from their own property. All of the products are finished with traditional oil and wax or finishes that are non-toxic, formaldehyde-free, and with little or no volatile organic chemicals. Vermont Woods Studios has a long list of sustainable business practices that they adhere to including regularly asking for chain of custody documents (legal logging certifications) before buying wood products. They use recycled or recyclable packaging materials and have a carton return/reuse policy.
