These days, most furniture and cabinetry comes from large factories, filled with big machines, spewing out parts at the touch of a button– but not with us. We’re a small workshop, with skilled craftspeople, employing hand techniques which can take a lifetime to master. We take pride in our work, and the skills required to undertake and complete it. Wood is a natural material, and therefore each piece is unique unto itself. We spend a good deal of time selecting each piece of timber, and exploring where it will be placed in your furniture, as well as how it relates and corresponds with the natural pieces adjacent to it, to create a harmonious flow throughout the entire piece. And our respect for our material is second to none, as stated in our philosophy.

Over the years, we’ve created many useful soapstone items for American homes. Soapstone sinks, counter tops and fireplaces. Steps, floors, shower stalls and more. For use in most every room. Fortunately for us, soapstone has gained popularity among those who are drawn to its classic look, its integrity, the unique character of each piece and, of course, the smoothness you feel when you rub it. It’s almost therapeutic. Sure, other companies offer soapstone. But we believe that being America’s original soapstone company…and working with it for a century and a half…gives us, and you, a leg up. It makes us confident that you’ll be much more than satisfied with your Vermont Soapstone piece. And we are confident enough to guarantee our soapstone forever.
