Online PR News – 19-November-2010 – – VERNON — Vermont’s economy has always depended on the hard work and dedication of its small businesses.
From agricultural improvements of the 19th century to modern-day software innovators, the state has a solid reputation as a home for entrepreneurs.
And in the Yankee-spirit of environmentally-friendly businesses, Vermont Woods Studios offers the Fine Handmade Solid Wood Furniture and craftsmanship in the country with a distinctive style and a lifetime guarantee.
An online retailer of Eco Friendly Vermont Made Furniture, this Vernon business has blossomed into a nationwide retailer of natural, eco-friendly solid wood furniture inspired by the breathtaking Green Mountains.
“Vermont has a long history of woodworking, as well as an abundance of premium hardwoods for our craftsmen to use in order to create beautiful, high-quality furniture that will last a lifetime,” said Peggy Farabaugh, co-owner of Vermont Woods Studios. “More than 70 percent of our state is forested with prized hardwoods, and our customers are searching for that sustainably harvested product whether it be our remarkable Maple tables or our luxurious Cherry bed frames.”
Peggy and her husband Ken started the business in 2005 to offer the finest furniture crafted and produced in Vermont. Today, the company employs 5-to-10 Vermonters and works directly with 15 of the state’s finest furniture makers.
Although Vermont Woods Studios was established as a way to showcase the world-class talent of independent furniture makers, the Farabaughs have a strong commitment to preserving the rainforests, where the equivalent of a football field is lost every second with the resultant lumber being used in flooring and furniture.
Now the couple has created an online community of American Made Handcrafted Furniture dedicated to the beauty and quality of their products, but also the preservation of the natural environment.
“Vermont Woods Studios began when a talented group of furniture markers, working independently from small work spaces scattered across Vermont, came together to share a passion for both an excellence in craftsmanship and promoting sustainable forestry,” Farabaugh said.
Vermont Woods Studios also has a donation program where a portion of the proceeds go to organizations involved with forest and wildlife conservation such as World Wildlife Fund, the Vermont Center for Eco Studies, The Nature Conservancy and Vermont Family Forests.
During their five years operating Vermont Woods Studios, the Farabaughs’ business has been featured locally in the Brattleboro Reformer, and has made waves nationally in The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, Fox News and The Weather Channel.
