One thing I'm learning about moving from an apartment to a house is that extra rooms means buying extra furniture.  It can be a little overwhelming thinking about all the things we now need.  But first things first, we need a bed.  We've pondered buying an inexpensive West Elm Narrow-Leg Bed Frame and adding a headboard later.  We've also considered the Calvin from Room & Board but for the price I'm not totally in love with it.  There's just something a little heavy about it. 

Well, yesterday I came across a website called Vermont Woods Studios and I think I'm in love.  All of their furniture is hand made by artisans in Vermont.  They use sustainable materials and they have free white glove shipping.  Some of the furniture is a little too traditional for my tastes but there are some simple beauties in there.  Like this Shaker Moon Bed.

It's almost perfect.  And the really great thing about this company is that since everything is handmade to order you can customize.  This could be my dream bed with one simple cut, straight across the headboard.  So it looks like this:

Simple, modern, light.  Exactly what I was looking for.  Now the only question is will the natural cherry shown above look good with my walnut Blu Dot Drift Dresser? The bed does come in walnut but I'm not sure I want to be too matchy-matchy with the wood.

  1. I think you could definitely make that work with the dresser. There's so much texture you can bring in to tie it together, it's beautiful. I am in love with the Tate bed from Crate and Barrel. And yes, I am half watching Lost right now.

  2. Me too!! I love that bed. I also love the Colette, but Eric said no upholstered beds because of the cats. I have to admit, I think he's right. This time.

  3. I'm contemplating the same West Elm bed, but I love that Vermont Wood Studios one (esp. with your customization). Thanks for pointing out this site!
