End of 60th Anniversary, Start of Winter Sale for Sturbridge Yankee Workshop
The yearly tradition of seasonal sales, such as the current Winter Seating and Quilts Sale, are designed to give back to the loyal customers of Sturbridge Yankee Workshop and show gratitude for their repeated business. Here is a sneak preview of what Sturbridge has to offer this year.
This year, Sturbridge Yankee Workshop celebrated their 60th anniversary as a company. Customers and loyal fans were delighted to discover a variety of exclusive designs in honor of the celebration, in addition to celebratory contests and special looks at Sturbridge Yankee Workshop’s past through historical articles and videos.
Sturbridge Yankee Workshop has been a long standing destination for furniture and home furnishings since it opened its doors in 1953. The pages of their catalogs are graced with early American style, Colonial reproductions and authentic classics. Sturbridge continues to feature many of the same styles as they did 60 years ago, offering the same quality and attention to detail. For example, their new Scrolled Arm Chair is a welcome upholstered chair sure to be as much of a customer favorite as the Kingfield or Stafford. Crafted in America using environmentally sustainable practices, a welcome addition to the wide range of made in the USA products that Sturbridge Yankee Workshop has to offer.
Adding to the collection of rocking chairs this year is a Country Rocking Chair, complementing long standing customer favorite items such as the range of Windsor and ladderback style chairs and stools that Sturbridge Yankee Workshop has been carrying for 60 years. In the 1965 Sturbridge Yankee Workshop catalog, ladderback chairs were offered in seven finishes; today they are available in a country complementary range of four. Ladderback chairs are said to have arrived in America on the Mayflower, making them historical treasures for any home.
A notable change for this year is the redesign of the customer favorite Sturbridge Lantern Lamp, an updated version of a Colonial classic lantern. Past designs featured a wooden base while the newest lamps showcased in this catalog now feature an all metal base that better replicates the early American designs. 60 years ago, Sturbridge offered Colonial lanterns made in the copper mill founded by Paul Revere. Today the lanterns are crafted from solid brass for continued authenticity and rustic country appearance. As Sturbridge says, “Our best selling lamps just got better.”
Bedding and quilt collections are a popular item in the winter catalog. New this year is the Fern Garden Quilt, offered in standard sizes with a valance and throw to coordinate an entire room. Soft greens and creams are combined in overlapping images of ferns and woodland creatures for a nature inspired collection just right for display any time of year.
