Inside the Shelburne Farms Collection

April 4, 2021

back to the blog

The Sam Macy Designs Shelburne Farms Collection is complete. It is now hanging in Burlington and Shelburne Vermont. Check out the videos for a behind the scenes look at the pieces in the collection, how they were made and where you can find them.

Shelburne Farms Collection Trailer

Before Sam began building his seven-piece collection, we did a little behind the scenes scoping of the farm to decide which iconic buildings, landscapes and animals to recreate. Check out the trailer below and read more about it HERE.

Making the Shelburne Farms Collection Part 1

First step: FRAMES and a sneak peak of the first piece created for the collection.

Making the Collection Part 2

Time to get to creating what lives in the handmade frames.

An Inside Look at the Staple Piece

The Farm Barn is one of the (if not THE) most iconic buildings on the sprawling 1,400 acre farm. Sam knew he wanted to recreate it… and it ended up being his biggest, most dynamic and most time consuming piece EVER!

As always, thank you for watching and following along <3
