Why Oak Makes Some of the Best Amish Furniture

You’re ready to invest in Amish Furniture, but you’re unsure about which type of wood to choose. The Amish Showroom provides extensive options, including luxury materials like Walnut and Hickory. Oak is one of our most popular materials, and for good reason. It can be cost effective, it’s long lasting, and it offers a beautiful grain that is suitable for both contemporary and traditional furniture.

What is it that makes Oak such a great material for Amish Furniture, and how will you benefit from incorporating this natural timber into your home?

Amish Furniture That Can Last Forever

Belleville Leg TableThe most important advantage for Oak (and for our other wood options) is the longevity of the material.

We often refer to Amish Furniture as being of heirloom quality, and it’s no exaggeration. Oak can potentially last your entire lifetime and far beyond. It has been used for centuries and many of the oldest examples live on in private collections.

Oak is naturally waterproof, and it was even used for ship manufacturing long before composites and metals were used in the modern era. Oak is also incredibly durable and will resist dents and scratches.

Maintenance is important, but the requirements aren’t extensive. Treatment with a furniture oil can help to protect Oak that hasn’t been finished with epoxy or paint. Depending on your environment and how often you use your Amish Furniture, you may only need to oil Oak every three months or so. When the wood starts to become dry, it’s time for a treatment.

Oak Can Be Finished to Create a Unique Appearance

The finishing options for Oak are virtually unlimited. It can be coated in epoxy to provide a glass-like finish that will protect the wood underneath. Oak can also be stained to give it a hue that matches your décor. Darker stains are often used for modern homes, while lighter stains are ideal for traditional homes where you want the grain to stand out.

The grain is unmistakably beautiful, which is why Oak is a popular choice for living room and dining room Amish Furniture. Country styles are particularly well suited to Oak grain, but there are no real rules on how you should use this wood. Order an office desk, a bookcase, or even an occasional table in Oak, and you’ll be able to appreciate the fine wood grain every day.

What is Quarter Sawn Oak for Amish Furniture?

Oak that is quarter sawn is cut, rotated, and cut again at the mill. This process helps to create an incredibly strong final product that resists warping. For furniture that will last the ages, quarter sawn Oak is an excellent option.

This method also results in a unique grain pattern that is finer and lighter than standard cut Oak. This can be ideal for furniture that you want to be understated or even modern in appearance. Many people simply prefer the grain pattern that comes from this process.

Five Unique Amish Furniture Sofa Ideas for Your Living Room

Your living room is unique in that it serves as both a place to relax and entertain. Because of this, your sofa will be one of the most important pieces of furniture that you choose.

Every piece of furniture that you buy should be a real investment. Quality furniture ensures that you’ll get a good return on your investment. You can buy Amish Furniture sofas to experience the difference that real handcrafted furniture can make.

Learn how to choose the best sofa for your needs, then explore five beautiful and unique Amish Furniture sofas for your home.

Four Simple Tips for Choosing a New Sofa for Your Home

Before you compare Amish Furniture sofa options online, make sure you follow these four simple tips.

1. Quality Matters

Never sacrifice quality when you are choosing living room furniture. Your sofa will be used daily by all the family. If you don’t choose high-quality furniture, then you could find that you need to buy replacements in just a few short years.

One of the top reasons to buy Amish Furniture online is the quality that you will get. Amish furniture is handcrafted from solid timber. Durable upholstery, including leather and designer fabrics, are used. At the Amish Showroom, we make furniture to last for your lifetime and beyond. You can invest today, and your sofa could be enjoyed for generations.

2. Don’t Sacrifice Comfort for Style

The sofa you choose should always be comfortable. Think about the type of materials that you prefer. Size and shape of a sofa could influence how comfortable it is. If you live in a hot climate then you may prefer furniture with lightweight upholstery. If you live in an area with colder or temperate weather, then you might prefer oversized furniture with plush fabric or leather upholstery.

If you have a large family, then you should consider pairing a sofa with matching sofa chairs or even a loveseat to ensure that everybody can comfortably enjoy your living room.

3. Don’t Worry About Trends – Choose What You Like

Trends are important when it comes to home decorating. The trends of today (and of yesteryear) could inspire you and give you ideas about wood stains, upholstery, and general size and shape.

However, you should not let trends overwhelm your own sense of style. Choose what you like and don’t be afraid to be creative. Every new trend started with somebody’s unique take on furniture style, so don’t underestimate your own eye or intuition.

4. Size is Important

Size matters when choosing a sofa. Try to maximize your seating while keeping in mind the space that you have available.

Measure your living room and then compare the size to the sofas that you are considering. One helpful way to visualize a potential sofa is to get the dimensions and then mark your floor area with masking tape. This will give you a fairly accurate representation of how much space the sofa will take up. This is even more important if you are thinking about upgrading to a bigger size.

Create West Coast Inspired Bedrooms with Amish Furniture

You can’t look past Amish furniture when you want the highest quality, longest lasting, and most beautiful natural wooden furniture. Amish collections have a place in America’s history, and they’re also very much a part of the contemporary style.

Our Amish Showroom is based in Minnesota, but we ship our products all over the United States, and design collections focused on both traditional and modern ideas. West Coast Style is one example of a design philosophy that pairs perfectly with our furniture collections.

It’s incredibly popular today and quite a departure from what you might see anywhere else in the United States. Learn about this unique style and you could discover new ideas for your bedroom.

Amish Furniture is Perfect for West Coast Bedroom Design

West Coast Bedroom DesignWhat is it that makes the West Coast Style unique? It’s all about big, bold, and eye-catching furniture. Whereas some design styles call for subtle pieces that are understated and even minimalistic, the West Coast Style takes a different approach where furniture pieces are large, prominent, and room-filling.

When it comes to upholstery and linen, look for heavy quilted fabrics in darker shades. In some cases, you could blend dark and light, using light colored flooring like designer tiles, deep pile carpet, or even light stained hardwood floors.

The West Coast Style is dramatic in its presentation, so it’s ok to go for some contrast. We recommend keeping the furniture dark and then creating your lighter shade contrast with other features or decorations.

If you have mid or large-sized rooms in your home, then you will find that the West Coast Style works perfectly. Of course, you’ll also need to have the right bedroom furniture pieces for everything to come together.

Take a look at this bedroom designed in the West Coast Style using the Breckenridge Collection. A combination of light and dark has been used, which helps the bedroom furniture to stand out even more. You’ll also notice that the size of the furniture immediately creates an impact. West Coast Style isn’t for the fainthearted, but if you’re adventurous enough to explore furniture that you might not have otherwise considered, then you will be rewarded with results just like this.

Go Big and Bold with All of Your Furniture

A bedroom inspired by the West Coast Style will need to be consistent when it comes to your furniture. Armoires, dressers, jewelry boxes, and nightstands etc. should all follow the principles of big, bold, dark, and dramatic.

You could even add beautifully functional custom items, like the Colebrook Jewelry Mirror. A hidden pull-out jewelry box is the perfect way to safely store your precious collection. You can even gain a security advantage, as we craft these to such high standards that nobody would know the extensions were there!

It’s All About the Color

Large furniture would feel too imposing with light stains, so we advise leaning towards some of the darker and more modern tones. Graphite, Onyx, and even Espresso are perfect for West Coast Design.

Shabby Chic Decorating for 2019 – Perfect for Amish Furniture Designs

The latest interior design trends are always exciting and often inspiring. Whether you are moving, building a new home, or if it’s simply time to redecorate and maybe even remodel, then you’ll benefit from learning about the emerging trends for this year and next.

Shabby Chic is one style that has steadily risen in popularity this year and it’s set to explode in 2019. If you love the tradition and quality of Amish furniture, then this style is likely to appeal.

What is Shabby Chic and How Does it Relate to Amish Furniture?

Shabby Chic, also known as Vintage Chic or Country Chic, is a modern style that incorporates the rustic, imperfect, and sometimes run-down aesthetic of traditional furniture with modern color elements. People who have incorporated the Shabby Chic style typically do so with cool pastel colors, particularly blues, greens, yellows, and pinks.

Shabby Chic can be used to restore old furniture, or, you can purchase new handmade rustic furniture, and have it finished in the Shabby Chic style. There are no major rules outside of the use of rustic or vintage furniture, and the cool pastel color palettes that are so popular today.

How Can You Incorporate Shabby Chic into Your Own Home?

It’s important to distinguish the difference between rustic furniture and antique display furniture. If you own expensive antique collections, then they’re probably not going to be suited to the Shabby Chic philosophy. Shabby Chic furniture should be comfortable and usable, rather than just for display.

Amish Furniture online is popular for Shabby Chic because even some classic pieces can be easily refinished, and they will work perfectly in modern homes that incorporate the latest style trend.

The quality of the best Amish Furniture is another reason to use it in Shabby Chic. Unlike some highly decorative antique furniture, vintage Amish pieces are in most cases as sturdy today as the day they were made. Amish pieces handed down through the generations are often well-worn and well-loved. Refinishing these pieces in satin pastel paints could breathe new life while instantly modernizing your vintage furniture.

Of course, you don’t have to use old furniture. Modern Amish furniture is also well suited to the Shabby Chic design style, particularly when you choose rustic inspired pieces from the collections at the Amish Showroom.

The Shabby Chic style can be used for kitchen furniture, bedroom collections, living room furniture, and even custom made cabinetry for a kitchen that blends the very best of the past and present.

Color Choices for Shabby Chic Style Amish Furniture

Shabby Chic colors are subdued and cool. Taking the vibrancy out of your usual color palette can make your home feel warmer and more relaxing. Amish furniture and even cabinets finished in pastel hues will help your home to feel colorful and bright without the use of any garish colors that could ruin the whole aesthetic.

Take a look at our color wheel and you’ll get an idea of the tones that are popular in Shabby Chic. You can have custom made Amish furniture and cabinets finished in durable Sherwin Williams oil-based wood paints. Satin finishes are perfect for pastel colors, as they reflect less light and can form a highly desirable patina after many years of use.

How Much Color is Too Much?

It’s recommended to choose a color palette for each room (or even one for your whole house) and try to work within the confines of it. Four to eight colors would be suitable for finding your own Shabby Chic style.

Note that not every piece of furniture in your home needs to be pastel colored to work well with a Shabby Chic concept. White and light gray furniture is neutral and will work with almost any hue in the pastel spectrum. Try to minimize your use of black furniture which can clash heavily with pastels.

The Best Custom-Made Amish Furniture Online

The Best Amish Furniture makers can supply custom collections that help you to achieve your Shabby Chic vision. The highest quality furniture and cabinets can be passed down through the generations, and refinishing is always an option for when inspiration leads you to the next big trend.

What are Graduated Drawers in Amish Furniture?

When you are on the lookout for Amish furniture, one particular piece you might be looking for an Amish dresser, and you’re probably going to hear the term ‘graduated drawers’ thrown around quite a bit. So, what are graduated drawers exactly and why do they make such a difference? When you buy Amish furniture there is little doubt that you are looking for something unique and something that will really make your room pop. Amish furniture alone can pull this off, but graduated drawers can really help to add some personality to your space.

An Explanation of Graduated Drawers in Amish Furniture

Amish Graduated Drawers FurnitureGraduated drawers start at the bottom and work their way up to the top with each drawer becoming smaller as you go upward. The bottom drawer, for example, will be fairly large and is perfect for keeping clothes, while the next drawer up might be better for undergarments. The uses for each drawer set will vary for person to person, and once you reach the top you will find that the drawers are much smaller but there can be more of them in the structure.

In Contrast to a Regular Dresser

As you might know, a regular dresser can only sport a certain number of drawers, most having about four to five at the most, depending on just how tall the dresser actually is. This is simpler but it is a bit limiting as far as functionality goes.

Considerations with Graduated Drawers

There are some drawbacks with graduated drawers, especially in terms of how they are designed. One of the biggest problems is the size of the bottom drawer, as if it is given too much space it will be far too deep. In fact, many would refer to this travesty as the ‘toybox’ effect. In other words, you don’t want your bottom drawer to look like a toy box.

Choose the Best Amish Furniture

As you look for Amish furniture online you will find that there are many options with graduated drawers being just one of them. Look around, find something that you like, and make sure that your room has a unique, one of a kind dresser unit.

 

Why Amish Furniture is Better than Commercial

When it comes to Amish furniture for many it’s an investment they’re making not only for themselves but for their home. These handmade pieces have been known to last for generations at a time and it can be difficult for people to decide whether they want to invest in it or go with a commercial brand of furniture. When you’re looking to buy Amish furniture you’re not just getting a high-quality product, but a guarantee that every step of the way the piece has been kept up to standards.

Amish Furniture

Amish Furniture is Built to be Serviceable

The idea of online Amish furniture being built to be functional and decorative second seems like a no-brainer, but for many, it can be difficult to tell the difference. There are so much time and effort that goes into making this kind of furniture that it’s built to be functional so it lasts longer. While there are examples of decorative furniture or ones that feature intricate designs, chances are the furnishings you’re purchasing were built to be sturdy.

Compare this to commercial furniture that unlike the best Amish furniture is mass produced with little quality control. These pieces are made cheaply so they sell faster but at the cost of truly being functional for more than a few years at a time. They’re decent pieces for filling in a role, but for the longer-term use, they fall short.

What’s the Difference Between Amish Furniture and the Commercial Variety?

There’s a lot of differences between Amish furniture for sale and the commercial brands you’ll find out there and not everyone knows the difference. The main one is that the commercial furniture is made using inferior materials like particle board that is basically compressed sawdust held together with a type of glues. Over time, particle board can start to wear away and the only protection it has is usually a thin veneer that wears away within a few years.

The Amish furniture store, on the other hand, carries the hardwood variety that is solid, serviceable, and built to serve a purpose. Investing in the handmade variety is well worth it when you consider everything it comes with and how it will last for years to come instead of breaking down in just a few years.

 

How to Choose the Best Amish Furniture for the Kitchen

When you’re in the market for Amish furniture one of the areas of your home you may want to renovate is your kitchen. Quality furniture at a fair price isn’t hard to come by if you know where to shop and in the long run, it can be a benefit to your household.

Why Should You Upgrade to the Best Amish Furniture?

Amish FurnitureWhen it comes to the kitchen you want sturdy cabinets to hold everything you need from pots, pans, to dishes and cooking utensils. Many people today don’t even realize their cabinets may not be as sturdy as they first thought with plenty of households having only particle board kitchen cabinet drawers.

Particle board is nothing like Amish furniture since it’s usually made from compressed wood leavings like sawdust before being made into cheap furnishings. While this does lower the price for it people are also compromising on the quality of the product they’re buying. Particle board furniture is okay for living situations where you just need something serviceable at the moment and don’t intend to stay in a current place for long. People who are settling down however and intend to spend years in a household either focusing on their careers or family, investing in quality furniture is a necessity.

How is Amish Furniture Better then Particle Board?

The online Amish furniture is vastly different from its particle board counterparts the main difference being it’s made out of hardwood instead of compressed wood leavings. Furniture made from particle board may be lower in price, but it’s also not as durable as the hardwood variety. When it gets wet particle, board reacts like cardboard and swells up to several times its size and the damage is irreversible.

While Amish furniture does swell when exposed to water this only happens if the water is left standing on its surface overnight. Wiping off the excess moisture immediately will ensure the furniture stays intact and won’t suffer lasting damage. Unlike particle board furniture, the hardwood variety also doesn’t have a cheap veneer that will wear away after a few years of heavy use.

Keep it Dry

This should be a matter of course for any surface in your home – you want to make sure that you’re keeping it dry to avoid rotting or mold growth. It might not happen overnight, but if you leave your surfaces wet too often it will happen sooner than you think. Old growth wood used in the best Amish furniture does help to keep water penetration down to a minimum but as always, common sense does need to be used.

Consider Sanding and Staining

This is a more advanced technique with Amish furniture but if it is something that you can pull off, then more power to you!

The Top Two Types of Amish Furniture Designs

Not every piece of Amish furniture is created equal, these handcrafted pieces vary in design and have aspects that make each piece unique. This even comes down to the style itself, the two main ones being the Shaker and Mission styles of furniture made by the Amish. Each style has its own unique history and distinctive characteristics that make them stand out compared to other furniture options.

Shaker Amish Furniture

Amish Furniture DesignsThe best Amish furniture made in the Shaker style is easily identified by its subtle curves, round wooden knobs, and tapered legs. The features of this furniture style are traditional and have a gentle appearance. Maple wood is the ideal wood for Shaker furniture, but many pieces have been made using cherry, maple, and pine. This style is often used for bedroom and dining room sets but has also been applied to baby furniture.

The beautiful and simple Shaker style is wonderful for its tapering design that is used to keep furniture light and sturdy. Tapering helps to eliminate excess materials to keep a piece lighter and turned legs offer the same, strong support as thicker pieces. Shaker Amish furniture also doesn’t feature any inlay, veneers, or other woodwork to make it stand out. The furniture showcases a humble lifestyle paired with durability and functionality with a simple, yet elegant beauty.

Mission Amish Furniture

The Mission style of Amish furniture takes some inspiration from its Shaker cousin but has its own distinctive characteristics to tell it apart. The straight angle, sturdy slats, and stable legs are the focal point of this type of furniture. Mission furniture typically has a darker stain compared to the earlier version of the Shaker style pieces. The Mission style does feature some ornamentation, but it still calls for a simplicity in its design.

Durability and functionality are still present in the Mission style with exposed joinery showing off the beauty and strength of the furniture. One of the most distinctive features of this style of furniture is the parallel slats that are present to give the appearance of strength. The uniform lines and the harmony of each piece of the furniture are tedious to make, but it showcases a truly deep appreciation for each Mission style piece made.

Each style of furniture carries with it the reputation of durability and longevity that makes it an excellent addition to any home. The furniture is built to be used every day and over time will become a natural fit to any household.

 

The Use of Tapering in Amish Furniture

You already know that the quality of Amish furniture is not to be argued with, but are you aware of any of the aesthetic techniques that are used? One used in the best Amish furniture is tapering, which can be seen on many pieces, and while it was seen often in the mid-century pieces, it tapers off (no pun intended) in the latter half of the 20th century. We are however seeing a resurgence of tapering in modern interior design, meaning it is going to be in just about any Amish furniture store that you come across.

Tapering in Amish Furniture – You’ve Seen It Before

Amish furniture for saleThe tapered leg is a product of the Mid-Century Modern period, and even if you aren’t a huge fan of that period there is a good chance you’ve already seen it. Tapering is defined as a gradual thinning as legs become closer to the floor, and it has been used since ancient times. Now, it is the defining feature of Mid-Century Modern pieces. Nearly any antique furniture you see today will probably use tapering of some kind, making it an essential part of furniture design.

Something to keep in mind is that not all tapered legs are created equal – there are some that are set at an angle rather than straight down, with that profile shape which immediately identifies them as a vintage piece of furniture. Some pieces have a rounded leg and some have a square tapered leg, both of which are unique and very useful in furniture design.

The Function of Tapered Legs

The purpose of tapered legs is two-fold if you haven’t guessed yet”

Aesthetics: Yes, tapered legs look great and they go well with virtually any kind of décor, especially if you’re going for the mid-century look. They can be used on dressers, tables, couches, and even coffee tables.

Functionality: The secondary function of the tapered leg that you see in a lot of Amish furniture for sale is weight. You can still have the full support of a standard leg while significantly decreasing the weight of the piece, making it far easier to move. This especially comes in handy with beds as they are large and sometimes need to be moved.

There are many different styles and form factors which you’ll find as you look for Amish furniture online. Make sure you get something that will suit your needs and most importantly, take advantage of that tapered leg style!

Furniture with low-quality joints will wobble and weaken over time due to their poor construction.

Dovetail Amish Furniture

Dovetail joints are one of the most common ones used in Amish furniture and will probably be the first one people encounter. Dovetail joints are characterized by their interlocking fingers that allow for one piece of wood to be connected to another.

The advantage of this joint is the sheer strength and durability it offers, especially when it concerns hardwood furniture. The wood is interlocked which means there’s less likelihood of the pieces pulling apart and combined with the hand-picked quality of Amish furniture for sale it’s a combination made in woodworking heaven.

Rabbet Joints

Amish FurnitureRabbet joints are another common feature to be found in Amish furniture and chances are people have them in their own home. The joint works by having a reinforced butt joint that has one or both pieces notched perfectly to be fit together. The joints are then reinforced using nails or screws to keep them locked together.

Rabbet joints are popular for woodworking since they’re easy to make and quite strong compared to others. The joints are used mainly for the corners of cabinet pieces, but they’re more commonly found being used for shelving.

The quality of the joints speaks volumes on the type of craftsmanship of Amish furniture for sale and how well the furnishings will hold up over time. Dovetail is used primarily in drawers and is a strong indicator of quality craftsmanship while rabbet joints provide critical support for the corners of cabinet pieces and shelving. Good quality furniture will make use of both of these woodworking joints when they’re needed during the construction.

Searching for the telltale signs of these joints shows quality craftsmanship and ensures the furniture will be serviceable over a long period of time. Amish furniture is typically made using 100% wood and can last for a lifetime if built right. The furniture is made with functionality, durability, and longevity in mind to ensure it’s able to last for generations. Each piece of furniture carries with it the rich history of generations worth of master craftsmanship, trial, and error.

Amish Furniture is One of a Kind

Amish furniture for saleAmish beliefs often prevent the use of electricity so most of the woodworking tools used in the shops are powered by the pneumatic or hydraulic power that is able to run on a diesel compressor.

Woodworking is a mainstay in many Amish communities, the crafting of the furniture responsible for supporting multiple families within the community.

The wood is able to break down naturally creating little to no waste and there is little if any harmful byproducts to worry about.

Collection of Wood

The same goes for coffee tables and virtually anything else in the Amish furniture arsenal.

Amish furniture can be used for a wide range of different settings. It could be used for a living room, or, as mentioned above, it could be used for a school. No matter what type of environment you place it in, it is going to look absolutely amazing and will raise the aesthetic value of the space that it is in consideration.

If you are outfitting your bedroom with Amish furniture for sale, then you should know about the different bed styles and what they can bring to your setting.

The Headboard and Frame – A Staple of Amish Furniture

Amish furnitureIf you’re looking for something extremely basic, then this is it. A basic headboard and frame don’t feature any rails, and the headboard can be changed at any time. You have the option of leaving the headboard standing free, or you can attach it to the wall using brackets so long as you can find two adequate studs.

Headboard with Side Rails

Taking it up a notch from the previous entry, it’s pretty much the same thing but with simple rails on each of the three sides. It is more decorative than functional, but it is a great aesthetic for any bedroom.

The Platform Bed

Platform beds have been around for many years as any Amish furniture store will tell you. These might be one of the first you see when you look for Amish furniture online, and will most definitely end up in your collection at some point.

The Sleigh Bed – For Those who Want to go All Out

You’ve seen sleigh beds before – they’re pretty much in every bedroom that has the space for them. Basically, they consist of a platform with a headboard and footboard, with the footboard curving out in the way that an old-fashioned sleigh does. These won’t be delivering presents on Christmas Eve but they can make your bedroom look absolutely amazing. Their area a few different design options, for example, there is the traditional style that has the headboard and footboard while the modern style only has the headboard and the matching rails. Going the traditional route is preferred for most people but it should only be embraced if you have the extra floor space to support it. The biggest problem is the footboard which curves out and claims more space than many people are comfortable with.

Among Amish furniture pieces, beds can be some of the most beautiful. Either highly ornate or extremely plain, beds can bring quite a bit to your life, and are most definitely something that you will want to put a lot of thought into the next time you are redecorating.

 

 

Fall Home Redesign Tips – Start with the Furniture

We’re currently in the midst of summer, but fall will be here before we know it, and with it comes to a very important responsibility: making sure that you have the right furniture. So, here’s the big question: are you ready to redesign your home for fall? If so, then it’s time for you to consider buying Amish furniture.

Amish Furniture for Fall – It Only Makes Sense

Amish FurnitureIt’s going to start with choosing the right color furniture for your living room and that isn’t always the easiest thing in the world. So, how do you do it? We would recommend that you start by choosing a base color and working your way out. What piece of furniture would you like to consider the centerpiece for your setup? Some people would choose the couch, and we agree that it’s a great starting point. A couch with a heavier stain would pair well with lighter chairs, and you can contrast the theme around the living room. While this might seem like a horrible mismatch of colors, it works very well in practice and can help to draw the eye to a variety of different places around the room.

Update your Bedrooms

The living room is a great place to start, but you spend a lot of time in your bedrooms and you want to make them look good. It all starts with making sure you have the right type of bed installed, for example, you could choose a four-poster bed, or you could go with the more traditional sleigh bed. The minimalist approach, with the standard headboard and bed frame, is also a good option, so consider that if you are running low on funds.

Think About that Patio

If you have an enclosed patio then you should most definitely visit an Amish furniture store. Amish furniture for sale can help to bring that patio to life in the same way it brought your living room to life. Add some new seating, and perhaps even add a new table in case you want to have an outdoor meal – fall is a perfect time!

Consider the Type of Wood

Ultimately, you will need to think about the type of wood that you want to use in your fall home re-design. You are most likely moving away from the big box furniture, so a serious jump in quality is going to be inevitable. That being the case, you could choose hardwood or softwood. Hardwood is often preferred due to its highly durable qualities but is also more expensive. Additionally, you will not see many hardwoods with ornate designs as they are much harder to carve. Softwoods, on the other hand, allow for far more creativity.

Fall is coming – make sure you look for the best Amish furniture online and get your house in order. There has never been a better time to give your home a complete makeover.

 

Does Amish Furniture Work in a Modern Home?

Furniture trends come and go, but the quality is timeless. Amish furniture for sale online takes the best of modern trends without losing what makes Amish design so great in the first place.

When you look at your new furniture you won’t be concerned about whether or not it’s suitable for modern times. Instead, you will wonder how the designers and craftsmen were able to blend the traditional and the modern in such a way that the furniture feels as suitable in the present as it would have in the past.

It’s All About the Quality

The quality is a big part of what makes Amish furniture so perfect for a modern home. Quality and craftsmanship is timeless. An exquisite piece of furniture made 100 years ago isn’t any less impressive because of its age; just like modern Amish furniture is not any less impressive because it takes design cues from the past.

Amish Furniture Ideas for your New Condo

There are a lot of great benefits to buying a condo and while you might not be able to customize the outside you can do whatever you wish to the inside. In our opinion, there is where Amish furniture for sale comes into the picture. If you were thinking of going for less expensive furniture then think again: you’ve already spent a considerable amount of money on the location, so why not go the extra mile with the furniture? Amish furniture has a lot of benefits, so let’s take a look at just a few of them.

Amish Furniture will make your Condo Look Great

Amish furniture for sale onlineYour condo already looks good, but now you can make it look absolutely great by adding a few decent furniture pieces. Big box furniture from your local retail store has nothing on the majesty of pure, solid hardwood from the Amish furniture store and under the right lighting, and paired with the right colors, it can be something right out of a dream.

Ideas for your Condo

There are plenty of ways to make your condo look great, and we would always recommend starting with the living room. Your front room can certainly benefit from the entertainment center, of which we have plenty right here in our store. You could also add a coffee table or even some seating. If you want to go the extra mile then we would strongly recommend using accent lighting to illuminate the pieces that you want to show off. It doesn’t need to be an obvious ploy, but just enough to help the flow of your room and to draw eyes to the right places.

After you have finished the living room you can move on to bedrooms which call for furniture that is not only beautiful but perfectly functional. A sleigh bed, for example, offers plenty of stability but often you will see storage beneath that bed, expanding your available bedroom options. At the end of the day, you can never have too much storage and Amish furniture makers are outstanding when it comes to creating useful but practical items.

It’s a Higher Quality Item

If you are looking for a higher quality item and something that will last longer, then you certainly want to start looking for Amish furniture for sale online. As you are shopping, you will need to keep in mind that there are different types of wood and we aren’t talking about the difference between pine and oak. Hardwoods and softwoods are a serious consideration, though admittedly softwoods can be a little bit less expensive than the alternative. The only problem with softwoods is that they cannot take as much of a beating as their harder cousins and are therefore best placed in areas that do not see a lot of traffic. For example, if you were to have a coffee table then you would almost definitely want to go with a hardwood like oak, but if you were buying a bedroom dresser or an end table, then you could definitely get away with purchasing something made from pine.

No matter which type of wood you choose to invest in, you can rest assured that it is going to last for a very long time, as Amish furniture tends to do.

Turn your House into a Home

The fun part about moving into a condo is turning a simple house into a home. You can do this with a mix of your personal belongings and of course the furniture that makes the home more comfortable. Consider our suggestions and make your new condo shine.

 

Relax on Brand New Amish Furniture this Summer

If you’ve gotten tired of the same old look in your home, rest easy knowing that you’re not exactly alone. There are many homeowners who want to try something different as the summer months come along, and in our opinion, one of the best things you can do this summer changes it up with Amish furniture in Oregon. It’s a high-quality investment that you aren’t going to regret any time soon.

Start with a Couch – A Common Sitting Area is the Perfect Amish Furniture

If you’re planning to invite guests over this summer then make no mistake: you’re going to need a couch, and when you buy Amish furniture, you are getting products that can potentially last a lifetime – it’s not something that you want to miss out on.

Along with the couch, you will need other common sitting areas, for example, it would be a good idea for you to invest in a set of chairs or even a few benches, all of which can be found among Amish furniture for sale online.

A Higher Quality Furniture Choice

Amish FurnitureAmish furniture prices are high for a reason. These are not the typical items that you would purchase at a big box store; if you buy a couch at an Amish furniture store you can expect it to last for a lifetime as it is made from hardwood rather than the particle board that you would find at most big box stores. The same will go for every other Amish furniture piece, so make sure you know whether you want to go with a hardwood or a softwood.

Hardwood vs. Softwood

As you prepare to outfit your home with Amish furniture for sale this summer it will be important for you to consider hardwood vs. softwood. Take software as a prime example of outstanding furniture material – it can be easily shaped and is perfect for designs that are a bit more ornate. Shaker furniture, for example, will use a lot of softwood while Mission furniture is able to stick with the hardwoods. In the end, your choice depends on how ornate you want the furniture to be, how much you want to pay, and most importantly, how much of a beating the furniture in question is going to take.

Summer is coming and it’s time for you to make the best furniture choice. Check our store and browse our wide selection of beautiful Amish furniture choices.

 

Standard Tables vs. Bar Height Tables

Choosing a new table for your kitchen always presents some challenges. If you are replacing an older table then you have some questions that you want to ask yourself, obviously. What are you looking for in a new table? Do you want something similar to the old table? What can a new table do for you that your old table can’t? Sometimes it is a simple matter of updating and other times it means adding something that you would find to be more functional. You clearly want to choose Amish furniture but the question we will be posing today is whether you should go with bar height tables or standard tables.

Standard Tables – A Staple of Amish Furniture

Amish Furniture TablesYou’ve already used the standard tables. When you buy Amish furniture they are quite frankly the first thing that you think of, and with good reason. Regular tables can come in many different shapes and sizes, whether you are purchasing a standard round one, a more angular square model, or even an oval. The possibilities are limitless especially when you factor in all of the different form factors and designs. A pedestal table, for example, is a sign of high class and sits proudly in many formal dining rooms.

Another benefit of using these tables as your Amish furniture of choice is having more chair options. When you look for Amish furniture online you will quickly notice that there are a plethora of chairs available which can be paired with your table, and you have quite the selection when it comes to style.

The Bar Height Table – A More Fun Solution

The bar height table is a slightly more fun and creative solution that many uses to create an informal setting in their dining room. This is often a solution used in conjunction with a standard dining room table, perhaps off in the corner or even in the kitchen. These higher tables make a great coffee corner or a reading area if you wish. The only drawback is that you do need higher chairs which leads to two major complications. The first would be that you may not have as many options when you look at Amish furniture for sale. These higher chairs are often not as ornate and there are often not as many varieties – just something to think about.

The second potential issue that you will run into is the height. If you think that you will have trouble climbing onto the chair, or if you will have issues with your feet not touching the ground, then you might want to consider the alternative.

Both tables have their purposes, but in the end, it will be up to you to decide whether you want to go the formal route or something a bit more modern.

Is it Time to Buy New Amish Furniture? A Quick Guide

Amish FurnitureIs there Anything Wrong with my Current Furniture?

Take a look at your existing furniture. Do you not like it? Is it broken or cracked? Has it been exposed to too much sunlight? Any of these factors can easily lead to a need to replace all of your furniture and while it might be a bit expensive, it is most definitely worth it.

Are you Looking for a Visual Upgrade?

Complete your Living Room with Occasional Tables

So you have your living room mostly put together but there is a good chance that you feel you are missing something. You have your couch, you have your entertainment center, so what else could you possibly need? If you think that your living room is devoid of tables, you are probably right, and occasional tables are the way to go when you are shopping at any Amish furniture store.

Why Look for Occasional Tables at an Amish Furniture Store?

Amish Furniture Occasional TablesAn occasional table is a piece of Amish furniture that is not necessarily made for a singular purpose and there are a few different types. Today, in this blog, we are going to cover two of them.

Coffee Tables – The Occasional Table Everyone Knows About

What’s not to love about a coffee table? Everyone has them and everyone loves them. You can use them for a variety of different purposes, for example, when you shop Amish furniture online you will find those with storage and those without. So, in other words, they can have an extended purpose, or they can simply be a pretty piece of Amish furniture to look at. The choice is yours.

End Tables – The More Versatile Option

No matter how you look at it, end tables are always going to be far more versatile than coffee tables. A coffee table is designed to sit in the center of the room, but end tables can be placed beside couches and chairs. You can take it a step further however by using these tables to decorate portions of the wall. You could place a lamp or a flower vase, or a few books to make the look of your living room complete. As you can see, there are a lot of great reasons to use end tables and they are a great addition to your already established coffee table.

More Storage Means More Functionality

You want your living room to be far more than just a pretty space to look at. You want it to be completely functional and any Amish furniture for sale that you look at needs to fulfill a specific purpose. Don’t worry; you will find exactly what you need in our store whether it is something with a few extra drawers or something with a larger surface area.

As always we strongly recommend that you take the time to ensure that you are getting furniture pieces that are properly measured and that will fit in your space. The right pieces are out there and your perfect living room may be just a few clicks away.

 

Three Tips for Using Amish Furniture to Furnish a Waiting Room

The waiting room in your office is a very important location; it may even be more important than your back offices. Every business has clients to please and let’s face it, the waiting room is going to be the first thing that your clients see as they enter your business. What do you want them to see, exactly? You want them to be comfortable in every way possible and that means finding the best Amish furniture to fit your needs.

Tip 1: Use the Best Amish Furniture to Create a Great Aesthetic

Amish furniture You want your waiting room to be easy on the eyes but you also want to make sure that it looks professional. If you need your area to look a little more modest then we would strongly recommend that you start with the Mission style of Amish furniture as it is not nearly as ornate as Shaker. This, of course, all depends on the type of atmosphere that you want to build. You can look through Amish furniture online and figure out what would work best for your setting.

Tip 2: Make the Waiting Room Comfortable

Making your waiting room more comfortable for your guests is always going to be a challenge; where do you even start? What’s the best way for you to go about it? In our opinion, it all starts with choosing comfortable chairs. To this end, you may want to look at some of our online Amish furniture that uses upholstery rather than the bare wood options. Don’t worry, you can still make a professional looking waiting room with upholstered chairs – just look for the leather variants.

Tip 3: Accessorize your Waiting Room

Furniture is great, but adding accessories is even more important than you realize. A few end tables here and there to hold magazines and lamps is a great start, but if you want to take it a step further, try adding a coffee table. Your customers and clients will thank you, trust us. Finally, a great touch would be to add a children’s play area and this often starts with a shorter table that they can use for coloring or for play. Sometimes, a shorter occasional table will work for this purpose, so make sure you take a quick look at our stock.

Learning where to buy Amish furniture will save you a lot of trouble in the future and it will give you plenty of great ideas as you continue to develop your waiting room. Finally, understand that Amish furniture isn’t just a cheap investment – it can last for years, decades, or even generations. This is one investment that will serve you well for many years to come.

 

How to Coordinate your Office Furniture

Setting up a new office is always going to be a challenge, but you don’t need us to tell you that, do you? You’ve probably spent quite a bit of time considering your layout, and when it comes right down to it, you might just need a little bit of help to get it all done correctly. So, what should you do? How should you get your office set up? Today we’re going to talk about the importance of proper coordination and the use of Amish furniture in creating the perfect office layout.

Use Amish Furniture to Create a Common Theme

The first piece of advice that we want to give you is to create a common theme throughout your office. If you are using items from our Amish furniture store then we would strongly recommend going with a more conservative design as you need to appeal to anyone that walks through your doors. In the past, we have found that most offices benefit significantly from the Mission style, which is very plain but still very effective. For less formal settings you could consider the more ornate Shaker style, but ultimately it will be up to you.

Color is Everything in Design

Amish furniture onlineAs you look at our Amish furniture online you will probably notice that it comes in different colors, for example, the Alamo desk versus the Artesa desk, with the Alamo being quite a bit lighter. The items you find among Amish furniture for sale online are not painted, but stained, meaning the tint of the stain and the color of the wood beneath shine through. These two combined will create either a darker or lighter design but in the end, it has a lot to do with the type of wood that is being used. When you are choosing a color or theme, you should make sure to contrast the types of woods that you choose so that there is some variance in your environment.

Get the Right Size

Whether you are buying online Amish furniture or some other style, you still need to make sure that you are getting the right size. Amish furniture comes in different styles, different sizes, and different colors, but you don’t need us to tell you that. Before you purchase any furniture, take measurements of your office and make sure that everything fits properly. The last thing you want to do is purchase a chair or a desk that is far too large for your space and makes it painful to navigate.

All in all, Amish furniture is a great choice for your office. It will give you the authentic wood feel that you are looking for, and it will even be comfortable. Shop our store today and get exactly what you need.

 

The Difference Between Laminate, Veneer, and Solid Wood

When buying Amish furniture, choosing the right type of wood is a definite challenge, so what should you be doing? It is crucial that you know the difference between the types of wood that you will encounter at an Amish furniture store, but you should also know exactly what you shouldn’t be found. With that in mind, today we are going to take a look at the difference between laminates, veneers, and solid wood.

Veneer – One Thing you Should Never Find at an Amish Furniture Store

Amish Furniture StoreVeneer is not a solid wood – it is a thin layer of hardwood that normally measures 1/8 of an inch thick. In most cases, it is bonded or glued to a cheaper surface, or, in many cases, a particle board. In other words, it looks good, but once you get beneath the surface, it’s a far cheaper piece of furniture. This practice allows furniture to be built at a lower cost an will still retain the beauty of the solid wood furniture.

Objectively, particle board lasts longer in humidity, which often means that it is a better choice for bathroom vanities, but if you are here, then you are looking for the real deal. It is also important to remember that unlike Amish furniture for sale, veneers cannot be sanded as you will break through the top layer and end up at the particle board.

Laminate – A Synthetic Nightmare

We introduce you to another piece that you will not be found among online Amish furniture as you shop. Laminate is made from thinly sliced pieces of wood, or synthetic materials, and it is designed to completely imitate wood grain. It has a shiny finish and is often used in low-end furniture pieces that need more durable surfaces. How durable it really is, and how long it is going to last, will depend on how often it is used.

Solid Wood – The Gold Standard in Furniture

Authentic Amish furniture will always be made from solid wood, there are no exceptions. Unlike those we mentioned above, it can be more expensive but also more durable. In addition to that, it can be easily worked on, ensuring that it can stand the test of time and be a part of your home for many years rather than being replaced at the first sign of damage.

We will always recommend solid wood over any other type of wood on the market, and now you can see why. Make sure that you find the right piece of furniture for your home and most importantly, make sure that it is constructed from the right materials.

 

Amish Furniture Woods – Oak vs Pine

Choosing the best type of wood for your new furniture collection is tough, and today we are going to spend some time talking about the difference between oak and pine. Both of these are a great option for Amish furniture but what are the differences and which one should you really choose if any?

A Word about Pine and Oak in Amish Furniture

Amish Furniture WoodsThe first thing that you need to know, is that these are two very different types of woods. One is a softwood, the other a hardwood. They do however share some similarities:

Durability – Both types of woods are very durable. You probably already know that oak has the upper hand when it comes to strength, but pine isn’t too bad either.

Resistant to Moisture Damage – While excessive moisture exposure can damage any type of wood, these two are particularly resistant to it. Naturally, you will want to avoid placing them in situations where they might become wet, but at the end of the day, you don’t have too much to worry about.

Aesthetics – Oak, and pine are both very beautiful kinds of wood. They look different but they both have their own beautiful style that will add its own impressive touch to your room.

Which One Should You Invest In?

As we said, they both have their merits but when you’re looking at Amish furniture for sale you want to make sure that you have the best. After all, you’re investing a lot of money into this. If you still aren’t able to figure out, then consider the following:

Budget – How much money do you have to spend? If you’re on a shoestring budget then pine is probably a better idea. If you have more wiggle room, however, the beauty of oak is hard to deny.

Amish furniture for saleFurniture Life – Oak will last much longer than pine, so how long do you expect to keep the furniture? If you aren’t planning to keep it for a lifetime then pine is probably a good choice but if you want something that you can pass down to your children, you know which way to go.

Furniture Use – How often will you be using your furniture? For what purpose? Oak withstands wear and tear a little better, so it is a better material for Amish furniture that will be used heavily.

Maintenance Considerations – A huge consideration when choosing the wood type at the Amish furniture store is the amount of maintenance you want to put into it. Oak will always be lower maintenance than pine as it is more resistant to wear and tear. Pine is softer, so it will become damaged more easily.

In the end, it will be up to you, but as you browse through Amish furniture online you might consider choosing both, as pine is good for low-traffic rooms, and oak is better for main rooms. Check over our pros and cons and make your decision!

 

Little Known Facts About Amish Furniture Building Technique

You already know that Amish furniture is a great investment and you are probably looking through several Amish furniture stores for the right type of furniture, but what don’t you know about it? Today we’re going to go over a few little-known facts that will most definitely increase your appreciation of any Amish furniture online that you browse or even choose to buy. Let’s go ahead and take a look at these fun facts that will really bring your furniture to life.

Amish Furniture is Made from 100% Wood

Even with the more expensive furniture retailers, you will often find furniture that is NOT made from 100% wood and this tends to be disappointing to say the least. Many of the more modern furniture designers will use high-end MDF board to simulate real wood, but if it’s not the real deal, then you don’t want it in your house. The Amish are accustomed to using oak, maple, cedar, and even mahogany to create some of the most beautiful pieces of furniture on the market.

All Amish Furniture for Sale is Handcrafted

Amish FurnitureAmish furniture for sale is handcrafted; there are no exceptions to the rule. Each piece of material used is chosen specifically, and your furniture will not come off of an assembly line. You can rest assured that your new chair, table, or coffee table was a labor of love.

Built Without Electricity

Have you ever wondered why Amish furniture is so expensive? Each and every piece is handcrafted without the aid of electricity which easily sets it apart from nearly every other type of furniture on the market today.

It’s an Old Tradition

Amish furniture uses old techniques because it IS old. The building methods that are being sued to create your house full of furniture are passed down from generation to generation, and the techniques don’t change much over time. You’re buying something that is tried and true, and it is something that could sit in your living room for the rest of your life.

These are just a few great facts about Amish furniture and as you research it for yourself you are bound to come up with many more.

You’re bound to find something you like before you know it!

 

How to Blend Wood Types in your Home Furnishing

We’ve always been big advocates of matching wood Amish furniture sets in your home, but there are times when you simply can’t, or just don’t want to. It’s an unspoken decorating rule that can be completely subverted if you really wish, and we’re going to spend a bit of time explaining how you can mix and match the different types of wood without consequence. It’s more eclectic and when done right, it can really bring a new level of personality to your interior design.

Amish Furniture

Start by Contrasting your Amish Furniture and Flooring

We can’t say this enough: when you find Amish furniture for sale online, don’t purchase anything that takes on the same shade as your flooring. If you have a wood toned floor it is easy to lose your furniture in it, so choose something that is either lighter or darker.

Get a Good Anchor Piece

Searching for Amish furniture online is difficult, but you will want to start with an anchor piece. For example, you might want to pick a coffee table or even a buffet, and then add two contrasting pieces around it. This will make the room look a bit more ‘busy’ and a lot less boring.

Keep it all in Harmony

If you aren’t careful your room will be a bit heavier on one side, so make sure that you’re trying to keep it all in harmony. You can do this by balancing different finishes throughout your space and using the darkly stained pieces as grounding.

What’s your Dominant Wood Tone?

While we do recommend mixing wood tones when you buy the best Amish furniture, we don’t necessarily mean that you have to go ‘crazy’ with it. You should choose a dominant wood tone that will represent the majority of your room and see just where it takes you. Think of the tone as your anchor, similar to the anchor piece that we mentioned earlier.

Go for Continuity

You are going to need some continuity in your space and you can’t argue that. If you think the mismatched wood grains have reached critical mass, then you should tie it all together with an accent color. Various accessories like throw pillows and lampshades can do a great job of bringing everything together, so don’t dismiss them!

Our Amish furniture store has everything that you could possibly need to really bring out the best in your living room without necessarily going with similar tones for every single piece. For more information, now would be a great time to look through our website and see just what we have to offer you. Amish furniture prices can be very high, but they are well worth it.

 

Legs vs. Pedestal Table

When customers walk into our Amish furniture store, one of the biggest and most common questions that they tend to ask is whether they should go for a pedestal table or a teg table. While we would normally simply tell you that it is a matter of personal preference, we can definitely understand that sometimes, it just isn’t that easy. Today we’re going to address the pros and cons of pedestal tables vs. leg tables and allow you to cast your own verdict. Either way, any Amish furniture that you purchase is going to be absolutely beautiful and will give you the look that you’re going for.

Addressing the Pros of the Pedestal Table in Amish Furniture

Amish Furniture - Legs vs. Pedestal TableThe first real advantage that you’re going to find yourself enjoying is the fact that there are no legs. While this might sound like a very obvious statement to make, you should take note that with a legged dining table you will quite literally lose an entire foot of usable space at the corners. With those corners freed, you will be able to fit far more chairs and ultimately have greater gatherings within your home. If you find that you host parties and family members often, then a pedestal table is going to be a great piece of Amish furniture for sale.

The second major advantage is that a pedestal table simply looks better than most of the alternatives. It is a work of art really and while you could say the exact same thing for leg tables, we have to say that the pedestal is a bit more ornate. There is simply more real estate for the artist to work with when they are working on this type of table.

Finally, there are a ton of great options for pedestal bases out there for you to choose from. If you look through our store you’re going to find quite a few things that agree with you, we can practically guarantee it. So now that you know the benefits, you probably want to address the very obvious question: what are the cons? There are a few, but not too many.

The Cons of Pedestal Tables

The most obvious disadvantage here is that pedestal tables are far more expensive than leg tables. They’re much larger and they take far more time to build. This accounts for the extra costs, and you will almost always find that the pedestal costs at least $600 more than the leg table. It might sound excessive, but it’s all about the time put into building it.

Support is another con. On a pedestal table the support is all at the center, so if you push down too hard at the edge of the table you will notice it wobbling or it could fall all the way over. This is not reflective of the quality you’ll find at an Amish furniture store but rather a statement on the laws of physics.

Finally, do you remember how we mentioned that you can fit more chairs at the table? That’s a bit of a double-edged sword actually, as you will find that the pedestals sometimes stick out far enough that you are unable to fit your chairs all the way in. Prepare for some knee bumping if you have a lot of guests over.

So what’s the final verdict? Is the pedestal table a good piece of Amish furniture for sale? In the end, it’s up to you, and it all depends on your own personal style. Look through our Amish furniture online and figure out what is going to fit your house best.

 

Picking an Amish Crafted Desk for your Office

You’re renovating your office and you’ve decided that you need a new desk. No one can blame you here; the desk is quite literally one of the most important parts of the office. It stands loud and proud right at the front. It’s where you do all of your work and its what people see the moment they walk in. You definitely don’t want one that looks sub-par, and you’re probably considering heading to an Amish furniture store. What should you be looking for as you peruse the Amish furniture for sale? What type of desk should you be thinking about getting?

Consider Size at the Amish Furniture Store

The first thing you want to think about when you find Amish furniture for sale is the size of your office. Grab a tape measure and take those measurements, starting from wall to wall. Write down the length and width of your office and then measure the size of your current desk. There is no standard required desk size but you should be able to walk around it comfortably. If applicable, take the measurements of your current desk into account when you are looking for Amish furniture online to make sure that you get exactly what you need.

Buy Amish Furniture that Matches

Amish Crafted DeskIf you already have office furniture then you want to choose a desk that matches. As you buy Amish furniture you will want to make sure that you’re considering the various styles, including Mission and Shaker. There are plenty of great choices, just make sure that everything matches to maintain a congruent aesthetic throughout the entirety of your office.

Think About Storage

Not all desks have a storage option but for the most part, you can expect them to. Some desks have drawers while others have cabinets and it will be up to you to determine what is appropriate for your space. If you already have file cabinets and other cabinets within your office then you might be able to go for a minimalist approach, but we always recommend having a few drawers for the items you need immediately on hand. Office supplies, documents, and other important items can be stored within arm’s reach, right inside your desk.

Choosing the right desk for your office is always going to be a challenge and the last thing we would like to mention is the material. There are quite a few different types of wood for you to choose from when you buy Amish furniture online or in a physical Amish fur nature store, so consider it carefully and do a bit of research on the different woods. It won’t be long before you have the perfect desk right in your office.

What You need to Do Before Buying an Entertainment Center

As you prepare to outfit your home with Amish furniture there is already a pretty strong chance that you have an idea of what you’re going to be going for, but when it comes to the living room you really do have your work cut out for you, for a few reasons. First and foremost, you’re probably going to find that your living room needs to have a certain flow.

Fun Facts about Amish Furniture Design that You Didn’t Know

You might think that you know all about the Amish, and in fact, just about anyone has a pre-determined notion of what the Amish are, but there are certain aspects that you definitely aren’t aware of. While we could certainly write a book on those, we are instead going to focus on some of the little-known facts about Amish furniture, starting with the concept of old growth wood.

Old Growth Wood in Amish Furniture

One very little known fact about the best Amish furniture is that the wood is not young. Wood in Amish communities is cultivated over many years for the purpose of creating the best furniture, ensuring that it reaches maximum hardness. The wood used in the Amish furniture for sale is not chosen at random, it is cultivated over years and grown to perfection. It doesn’t get much better than that!

Clean Joint Adhesive

Actually, you will find that many cutting boards use the same type of glue, which should definitely put your mind at ease.

The Amish Use Power Tools

Amish stereotypes often creep into the mind of anyone, unless of course you ARE Amish and you fully understand the culture. A common misunderstanding is that all of the Amish furniture online is built using basic hand tools. Hand saws, hammers, and the like. So, do they use hand tools, or do they use power tools? The truth might surprise you. Admittedly, the Amish try to stay separated from modern society and one of the ways that they do so is by staying off of the power grid. There was a time however when food safety laws demanded they start refrigerating milk that they were selling, and this led to hem using gas or diesel compressors. As they say, in for a penny, in for a pound, and eventually they begin using power tools with those compressors. The use of basic power tools has allowed the Amish to maintain their high standard of quality without compromising their beliefs.

As you can see, there are a lot of things to know about the Amish and when you buy Amish furniture you are buying into an amazing tradition going back hundreds of years. Look at our Amish furniture online and get the best.

Three Tips for Decorating with Amish Furniture

When you’re working on decorating a new home, Amish furniture is a great way to add some elegance and functionality to your space. So how do you properly decorate with Amish furniture? Today we’re going to cover three tips that will help you to take advantage of the look and feel of any Amish furniture for sale while making sure that your space stays uniquely you.

Tip 1: Buy Amish Furniture That Matches

Don’t make the mistake of getting mismatched Amish furniture for sale! Whether you’re outfitting your living room, dining room, or a bedroom, you want to make sure that the features line up which include the following:

Style – If you’ve read our other blogs then you already know that there are several different types of Amish furniture with the two primary styles being Mission and Shaker. You typically don’t want to mix these two in your room spread as they do clash and the difference is very noticeable.

Wood Undertones – At any Amish furniture store you will notice that there are some differences in color and even texture, and this isn’t just the lighting. There is a wide range of wood undertones that are either natural or a result of staining – you want your undertones to match and most importantly you want them to properly compliment the room.

Tip 2: Invest in Accents

As you look at Amish furniture online it will be essential for you to make sure that you are investing in pieces that will accent the room. End tables, ottomans, and even coffee tables are a great way for you to put that finishing touch on an already stunning room spread.

Tip 3: Scale your Furniture Properly

We cannot say this enough: make sure that the furniture you buy is properly scaled. You don’t want to buy furniture that is too big for your space, or chairs that don’t fit your tables. When in doubt, make sure you ask for help because you don’t want to waste a ton of money on furniture that doesn’t really fit your needs and most importantly, doesn’t fit your living room.

The Importance of Evaluating

There is a significant difference between buying Amish furniture and purchasing any other type of furniture. The thing that you need to remember here, is that this type of furniture is far more expensive than any other – you aren’t just grabbing a piece of particle board from your local retail store! Amish furniture is designed to last a lifetime and you’re going to have it for many years to come. You may even pass it down to your children, so make sure that you are paying attention and that you get the right pieces for every room in your house.
