Amish furniture can be a lovely addition to any home. The Amish furniture is solid and well constructed, being made of all natural wood such as cherry, oak, maple and hickory. You’ll find the furniture heavier than what you may be used to because of this – Amish furniture is not flimsy. Unlike most furniture, Amish furniture is made with care, one piece at a time and built to last. The beauty and craftsmanship of Amish furniture is almost unparalleled in today’s world of mass produced items and therefore a favorite of furniture lovers. Because of their simple lifestyle, the Amish furniture usually has a classic and traditional look. Most of the furniture is stained to reflect the original wood color, but some of it is painted in retro colors such as blue, green or yellow.
You can find almost anything you need in an Amish furniture shop. There are common items such as dining sets, chairs and beds, but you can also find more classic items like cupboards and pie safes. There is children’s furniture such as beds, bookshelves, cribs and chairs. No matter what you choose, you can be assured that your piece will be of the highest quality. You can also request that a piece be made. Try that at your local furniture store!
Most Amish stores sell other items at their shops as well as furniture. You can find lovely handmade quilts, baskets, pottery and candles. But one of the best items you will find in an Amish furniture store is the home canned fruits, jams and vegetables made by the Amish women.
Because of its construction, Amish furniture can become an heirloom that is passed down from generation to generation. You may have to pay more for Amish furniture, but the handcrafted beauty and sturdiness will be well worth the extra cost.
