Create Your Own Reading Nook with Amish Furniture

Every day, billions of people around the world sit down with a favorite book, magazine, or even a tablet or e-reader. While many assume that books have fallen out of fashion with modern audiences, the opposite is true. A 2016 Pew Research study found that 73% of Americans read at least one novel in that year. The number was identical when the same survey was taken five years earlier.

Of course, there’s also the real reading enthusiasts, who sometimes read a book a week. For smaller novellas and collections, some even read a book a day!

Reading is a pastime that has never died down, and it probably never will. Learning, exploring people and stories, and traveling to fantastic places will never get old.

You can create your own reading nook to celebrate your love of books at home. With a few Amish Furniture pieces, you’ll be able to design the perfect space.

Modern Rustic Bedroom Furniture

Modern Rustic Furniture might sound like an oxymoron but it can be achieved in interior design.  Whether you want to add  Barn-wood Texture, use an Antique Slate Stain, or choose hardware that nods towards a rustic aesthetic.  Here are some fantastic ideas to incorporate Modern Rustic Furniture into your bedroom.

The Cambridge Collection

The Cambridge Bedroom Set is shown in Oak with Antique Slate stain. Note how the dresser has two different types of drawers and hardware adding a modern touch.  This collection also has clean lines throughout and an angular cut on the feet of the bed and case pieces.   On the bed you can see the nod to a Barn-Door “X” that is half completed making it lean more towards the modern side of the spectrum.

If you want the Cambridge Collection to lean more towards the Rustic side, you could choose a stain color that has warm brown hues, or change the wood type to Rustic Cherry or Rustic Hickory.  By selecting a Rustic Wood Type you would have knots present in the boards that would add a little character and texture to the wood.

Timber Lake Bed


Looking for that completed Barn-Door “X” look, check out the Timber Lake Bed.  This bed has texture and is shown in Brown Maple wood.  The saw marks add texture through out the entire collection.  The Case pieces that go with this bed also feature the full “X”.

Want to lean more toward the modern side of the scale with the Timber Lake Collection?  Change your stain color to a cooler hue, select different case pieces.  All of your pieces in your order are finished at the same time, so they will be stained to match even if the case pieces and bed aren’t from the same collection.


Belwright Collection

The Belwright Collection is shown with optional texture.  When purchasing from this collection you can decide if you want to add the texture or not.  Better yet, you can add texture to any of the available wood species!

Another collection that offers an optional texture is the Farmhouse Collection shown below.

Common features that you will find in the Modern Rustic aesthetic include; rustic wood species, cool tones and hues, clean lines, barnwood textures, rough sawn textures, “X” shapes, brassy hardware, textured hardware, paneled beds, and larger case pieces.

January Featured Products

Happy New Year!

Allerton Bar Chair is shown in Brown Maple with Onyx stain and 28-23 Rink Fabric with Nickel Tacks.  This bar chair is customizable.  Select your wood type, stain, fabric or leather, and your tacks.  Play on contrast with this stool by selecting a dark stain and light colored fabric.  Place them at your island or around a pub height dining table.  Available in 24″ H and 30″ H.

The Xavier Trestle has a stunning live edge top and metal “X” base.  Pair this table with the Tifton Dining Chair with a live edge top on the chair, to really showcase that element.  The matching bench shown, is the same length as the table.  We recommend this option, because live edge tables are not able to expand and this provides you with the most seating.

You could also pair this trestle table with the Eagle Dining Chair with wrought iron, to showcase the metal detailing. The Eagle is a very comfortable chair with a wood seat.  The seats are scooped out to provide the most comfort.

The Xavier dining table is shown in Rustic Walnut with a clear stain.  The clear finish allows the true natural beauty to shine through.  Rustic Walnut is going to have knots and cracks.  Rustic wood has more character and adds a special touch to the furniture.  No two tables will be identical. If you want the beauty of Walnut wood with out the knots and cracks, order Walnut instead of Rustic Walnut wood.

The Westmere Bedroom Collection is also shown in Walnut. This bed features two thick live edge slabs held with metal detailing.  All of the matching case pieces feature live edge tops.  The live edge profile will be unique to each board. Available in a Queen or King size.
