Office Furniture from Vermont Furniture DesignsVermont Furniture Designs is a well-known heirloom furniture company in Winooski, VT and servicing the Burlington, VT area. They pride ourselves on building solid hardwood furniture that delivers custom quality without the custom price. They work by hand, combining the latest technology with elements of traditional joinery in an effort to create heirloom-quality pieces that are reasonably affordable.
Their furniture is available in solid cherry, walnut, and maple, as well as blended combinations of those three species. Our hand rubbed oil finish does not allow staining or tinting, so the natural color of the wood is displayed. We take great pride in our color and grain matching - without a stain, the selection of the individual pieces of wood is of paramount importance.
Finish: They use an oil and wax finish that is based on linseed oil. This natural product brings out the color, grain, and depth of all of the hardwoods we use. While it requires some care, the rich patina that develops with re-oiling is worth the effort. Finishing with oil requires a very detailed level of sanding. When you touch our furniture, you are touching the wood, not a chemical finish. Because the oil sinks into the wood, we must hand sand to a very fine grit to ensure a smooth surface. Oil finishing does not produce any VOCs. It is a natural and safe process that has been used for centuries.
