Town & Country – Shaker Extraordinaires

Wednesday, July 27th, 2011

There are friendships and then there are those who stick with you through it all. Town & Country is the latter. They are Mainers, long time business partners, and most of all – friends of Sturbridge Yankee Workshop.

In 1974 in the deep throws of a Maine winter, Town & Country sprang up through the snow pack to make custom cabinets. Over time their business grew to include all types of woodworking, but they kept the same sturdy eye on getting it right. More time passed and in 1987, Town & Country became allies in the world of furniture; teaming up with others meant creating spectacular furniture at a great price, made right here in our wonderful state of Maine. These marvels of lumber, these overlords of timber, make our entire line of Shaker furniture. Town and Country perhaps will be modest when they speak of how incredibly well put together their furniture pieces are, but we feel it necessary to shout it out  for them.

Combining long lines, classic styling, and the pure simplicity, it’s hard to miss the beauty of shaker furniture. The Country Shaker Table and End Table are perfect examples of how uncomplicated design can be beautiful. The wood speaks for itself on the top, showing the swirling grain, capped with clean rounded edges. The stained legs and drawer pop out in great colors. We think the proverbial cherry on top is the stained drawer pull – mirroring the stunning cherry stain on top. Town and country creates all kinds of marvelous shaker furniture for us, from the simplistic Shaker Storage Bench, the great Country Shaker Coffee Table. They make it easy to fix up your work space with the Desk Organizer. Even if your living room needs a bit of storage, the Shaker Tall Bookcases are perfect in any traditionally furnished home. Short on space? The Shaker Low Bookcase is the perfect height for filling the wasted space below a window.

With all of these options and the sheer quality of the craftsmanship, we believe the pieces from Town & Country work in any home and will hold up for years to come.

Westmoreland Woodworks – Perfect Pine

Saturday, July 2nd, 2011

Here at Sturbridge we really love the folks who create our items and wanted to take time out to thank them. On this post we’ll talk about just one of our many American made producers, Westmoreland Woodworks.

The sawdust started flying in the mid nineties with a long linage of woodworking and experience. Crated to spec, handcrafted by Georgians with expertise and knowledge of all styles and types. Westmoreland has impeccable handymanship – from the Low Beadboard Bookcase to the Rustic Dining Table, a room’s center piece – they never disappoint. The swirling grain of  high quality pine comes through in their woodwork with the furniture’s top being stained, beauty to brag about to the neighbors.

We cherish them because of all of the great color and stain selections that they fit perfectly to what suits your needs as a customer of Sturbridge Yankee. As they state in their ‘About Us’ section – they are committed to “quality workmanship” and we think it really shows. The Rustic Bow Back Chairs they create for us shows off their dedication to their work in the perfectly wound spindles and a dazzling wood stained seat bottom. If you need to pull together an office the Beadboard Desk and Tall Beadboard Bookcase come together in perfect harmony in your work space. To put an explination point on your bedroom, the Beadboard End Table will more then do the job – it’s solid white pine is exquisite.

As you can see, Westmoreland Woodworks is the prefect fit for Sturbridge Yankee Workshop and we think they all would make a great addition in your home.
