Our Story

Each piece of Pompanoosuc Mills solid hardwood furniture is individually handcrafted to your specifications by our Vermont artisans.


We have been handcrafting fine hardwood furniture for more than 40 years. In the early 1970s, founder Dwight O. Sargent had a vision. He dreamed of building furniture using old-world traditions while maintaining a level of unsurpassed craftsmanship and quality. In his small woodshop in Norwich, Vermont, Dwight built Pompanoosuc Mills from the ground up—with passion, precision and persistence. He recruited a team of talented woodworkers and began offering customers heirloom-quality furniture back in 1973. Now, more than 40 years later, Dwight has built his dream.


We have grown from a tiny woodshop to a full-fledged workshop with distinct teams in the rough mill, assembly, finishing and upholstery departments. Still the commitment to craftsmanship and quality remains unchanged, and every piece comes out of our Vermont workshop. Many of our teammates have been with the company for decades, and two have been by Dwight’s side since our inception!

Our furniture collection has also scaled to include more than 9,000 designs for both home and office. Many of the designs reflect an elegant simplicity that is as appropriate for formal living as it is for more casual spaces. No matter what the piece, our designs and the methods we use to craft our fine furniture are timeless.

We as a company are deeply committed to quality, consistency and customer satisfaction. Each step of the way, your furniture is in the hands of our skilled knowledgeable team—from the time the initial order is taken, as the piece makes its way through the workshop, and ultimately through when our in-house delivery team brings the piece into your home.
