Apparently, Martha’s Vineyard isn’t just populated by tourists and summer vacation rentals.
It’s also home to the Martha’s Vineyard Furniture Company, whose specialty is making beautiful, sustainable pieces like the reclaimed barn board table above. Part of their Agrarian Green collection, the Tisbury Dining Table is made to order in either the Antique Walnut finish shown above, or in the lighter Old Growth Oak with Driftwood finish. There are also options for a turned leg, tapered leg, or even a breadboard extension!
Several of the pieces in the line, including the Lagoon Pond Kitchen Island above, allow for custom, environmentally friendly milk paint colors and finishes as well.
If you happen to be one of the lucky folks who get to while away the summer in Martha’s Vineyard, you should stop by Interiors Studio in Vineyard Haven where you may see examples from all three of the sustainable furniture lines Martha’s Vineyard Furniture offers, including the Many Shades of Green line, made of no-VOC painted Hevea wood (seen above), and the Olive Street collection of upholstered pieces. For those not quite so lucky, all of the furniture is available online through their website.
So how did this company come to be? Well, when you have an interior designer, an environmental consultant, and a retired business owner, all in the same family, it almost seems inevitable doesn’t it? Says the company website -
“The beautiful Island of Martha’s Vineyard was the inspiration for our furniture. Each piece of furniture is named after a place on the Island and each color selected for our painted furniture is a reflection of how we see life on Martha’s Vineyard.
We think “Islanders” and “Wash-a-shores” alike would agree.”
Well, I’ve never been to Martha’s Vineyard, but if any of you dear readers have, please let us know what you think in the comments.
