ClearLake Furniture was created in 1992 by Brent Karner, master woodworker, and Frank Procopio, furniture designer. They had a vision of combining their commitment to excellence, passion for fine furniture, and creative energy and from that vision came ClearLake Furniture, which continues to thrive in Vermont, now under the sole leadership of Brent.

Brent honed his skill in the art of fine woodworking at the world-renowned North Bennet Street School in Boston. His commitment to detail and excellence is built into every piece of furniture created by the craftsmen of ClearLake Furniture.

At our restored barn in Ludlow, Vermont, you can wander through our workshop, talk with the craftsmen, and browse our 3,000 square-foot gallery for ideas. Once you've chosen your style, size, wood, and finish, you can visit the stacks of raw hardwood with your craftsman and select the actual boards for your furniture. Also, since one craftsman attends to every detail of your furniture from start to finish, you can visit the workshop at any time to chat with your craftsman and see the progress of your piece.

Since every piece of ClearLake Furniture is crafted with time-proven techniques such as interlocking joints, splined miters, and dovetails, it will become a treasured heirloom for generations to come. Each piece is signed by the craftsman and dated along with the owner's family name. We are so confident of our materials and craftsmanship, we offer the ClearLake Guarantee. Also, because we know your style or circumstances may change over time, we offer the ClearLake Investment Program to protect your investment by enabling you to trade most of our standard hardwood furniture for a new piece.

We are committed to making certain that supreme quality, personal involvement, and total satisfaction continue to be the hallmarks of ClearLake Furniture.
