Amish Furniture For the Home
Amish Furniture makes a home warm and welcoming. Hard woods, have invited friendly visits and important family gatherings for years. When you sit on a solid piece of wood furniture, you feel secure, welcome. You can find this quality but you'll have to search for it.
Amish furniture has been sought after by the wealthy and the not so wealthy for it's simple yet elegant designs and traditional quality that lasts for generations. With the dawn of the information age finding furniture on the net has become as easy as entering a search. Just like before you get what you pay for. Often sites are pushing products as Amish Furniture and yet they are made in China. This is very unfortunate, because you can find truly Amish Furniture, all over the internet, but you really have to dig for it.
How do you know the difference you ask? Amish Craftsmen pay attention to detail. They build there pieces traditionally, the way they were taught by their fathers and grandfathers. So when shopping, look for the detail, no two Amish piece are ever alike. Also many of the large sites have a great selection, but with selection you often loose originality. Small Amish Shops are not mass production facilities. Yes they are very productive, but no one shop supplies many of the large retailers, and often imitations can sneak in the back door. Find smaller sites that sell unique products and chances are your finding someone who knows an Amish Craftsmen or two personally. True Amish sites will often allow for custom orders. There customer service will be great, but is often slow, because their craftsmen don't use modern communication (no telephones at the shop). So be patient. Surprisingly I have found that the true Amish Furniture when bought direct from a small dealer is cheaper than the imported stuff, so don't think price will tell you if it's real. If your in the market for some traditional value visit (www.stoveramishfurniture.com).
I grew up in North Carolina, so I count myself lucky for having known many fine furniture craftsmen. When I moved to Ohio, I started visiting the Amish country. I love roaming the Amish Country of the Mid-West finding small family shops and bringing their quality to the world. I have learned much from these simple Craftsmen, of pride and workmanship, and can tell you my site (www.stoveramishfurniture.com), will only offer the best priced best quality Amish Furniture. Amish Furniture made right here in the Heartland of America.
Just a simple guy.
