About Vermont Furniture Designs
Vermont Furniture Designs has been handcrafting heirloom quality, hardwood furniture for over 38 years. Working in native walnut, maple, and cherry, each piece is bench made by a small team of highly skilled artisans. Every bed, dresser, and nightstand treated with a sense of pride and a deep respect for the rich history of New England furniture making. Classic, yet elegant styling, make their designs timeless. Traditional Mission, Shaker, Arts and Crafts, or Mid-century Modern are all represented in their collection of offerings. Never overly ornate, clean sweeping lines are VFD’s trademark.
With a combined 44 years of furniture making experience, co-owners Adam Blaisdell and Rob Bachand can be found most days out on the production floor, working alongside the rest of the team. They only break away when the opportunity arises to head up in the showroom and chat with any of VFD’s wonderful customers. Rob and Adam share a passion for designing custom furniture that is both aesthetically pleasing and functionally solid to satisfy a wide range of individual customer wants and needs.
Rob and Adam have recently launched Vermont Handcrafted Furniture. While Vermont Furniture Designs will remain rooted in more traditional fare, Vermont Handcrafted Furniture embraces other local artisans working in stone, metal, fabric, etc. These collaborations will result in new and exciting designs produced 100% in the Green Mountain State.
Vermont Furniture Design is a well-known heirloom furniture company in Winooski, VT and servicing the Burlington, VT area. We pride ourselves on building solid hardwood furniture that delivers custom quality without the custom price. We work by hand, combining the latest technology with elements of traditional joinery in an effort to create heirloom-quality pieces that are reasonably affordable.
In a world that’s been overtaken by mass-produced products that lack in quality and skilled craftsmanship, we strive to produce furniture that stands out among the masses of snap-together pieces. Building fine heirloom furniture that will last for generations is a time-consuming process that cannot be rushed by taking shortcuts. All of our furniture is enhanced by unbroken lines of solid wood construction with a minimum of laminated or glued-together parts. Parts are produced in multiples and then handed to small teams of people who work by hand in the traditional bench-crafted fashion. Drawers and doors are precision-fitted by specially trained teams as well.
