Buying furniture is more of a complex process than, say, buying a laptop or a television. You can spend thousands of dollars on buying furniture that is going to last you for a long time. All the decisions related to the type of furniture you choose- color, material, design, and size, as well as the time at which you buy it, can all be very important considerations. While there are many options of choosing high-end or more inexpensive furniture for your home or office, you may also want to look at furniture built by Amish craftsmen.
About Amish Furniture
Furniture crafted by Amish craftsmen made from the highest grade lumber is beautiful and unique- something that you will not find in regular furniture stores. At the Amish Showroom, our goal is to have the finest Amish craftsmen make products that we can retail to you directly from our shop. This furniture is of the highest quality, made without the use of laminate or particle board. The styles used by the Amish woodworkers are generally more traditional. Because Amish beliefs prevent the use of electricity, the power source for many of the woodworking tools that the Amish use, is hydraulic and pneumatic power run on diesel compressors.
You may wonder how well-crafted the furniture may or may not be, due to this limitation. But once you look at Amish furniture, you are sure to be pleasantly surprised by the attention to detail and the superior skill used in carving each piece. Amish craftsmen take great pride in their work and consider their furniture not only as furnishing, but also as pieces of art that last for generations. Unlike regular machine-crafted furniture that is produced quickly and cheaply using low grade materials, Amish furniture is made only after carefully selecting each piece of wood, and after paying due attention to the grain of the wood. Modern styles having clean, straight lines, to traditional styles with more intricate carving and ornate moldings, Amish furniture is sure to appeal to everyone, no matter what their taste.
Furniture Layout and Your Mood
Our quality of life can be impacted by how we perceive and experience the space in our home. If our home is filled with things that we love and arranged in a pleasing way, it adds joy to our lives. If, on the other hand, our home is cluttered with poorly arranged items, it can become a source of stress and frustration. But with careful thought to placement of furniture, you can make your home harmonious and inviting. Here are some tips.
- Organizing items and removing unnecessary things is the first step to creating a pleasant space in your home. Putting too much to display creates a cluttered look and causes anxiety. Have a few pieces of accessories that are tasteful and serve a purpose. Having Amish hand-crafted pieces can have a stunning effect.
- Color is another very important aspect that directly impacts the mood. There has been along association of colors with different moods- reds invoke passion and energy, yellow is associated with cheerfulness, greens and oranges are soothing and happy, while blue creates a serene environment. With Amish furniture crafted from different types of wood, the type of wood used can have varied color hues. Hickory, for example, can be creamy white or reddish-brown in color, while cedar has a deep rosy glow.
- Using things that are pleasing to our senses also helps to get into a happier mood. When you see, hear, or smell what you like, you immediately get into a happy, pleasant mood. Setting out family pictures, for example, with soft lighting from candles- all on a beautifully carved piece of Amish furniture, can truly create a wonderfully relaxing environment. Even the smell of solid wood Amish furniture can be a great mood lifter.
