Fully Customizable Amish Furniture
A quick Google search for “Custom Amish Furniture” provides wonderful links for any furniture enthusiasts searching for that one-of-a-kind piece. Maybe your friend owns a furniture piece that is equally beautiful as rare and you’ve always wanted something like it. Or perhaps you’ve imagined a piece that is entirely original and aren’t sure how to help it become a reality. Fortunately, a few furniture retailers offer fully customizable furniture. Even allowing customers to create products from scratch (with the input of expert wood artisans of course!).
For better or worse, an abundance of choices, options, and selections permeates our culture. While the handcrafted furniture market has maintained a legacy of tradition (whether through classic styles such as “Queen Anne” or through traditional hand-crafting techniques) it has prided itself on a history of working hand-in-hand with each customer. Amish furniture retailers, in particular, have earned a reputation as friendly and open to customer input. Many Amish shops pride themselves on their list of custom-crafted products, proudly displaying photos and blueprints of custom products, charting the seed of imagination to its final conception in wood and glue. Often, custom Amish furniture will bear the name of their creators for future shoppers to see.
If you are a furniture enthusiast with a dream for a custom furniture piece, contact a local furniture craftsman. If you are unsure who to contact, look for places that mention “hand-craftsmanship”, “solid wood construction” or “Amish and Mennonite Furniture”. Talk to an artisan or trained salesperson and ask them if they build custom pieces. When the journey of creation begins, enjoy the wonderful opportunity to participate in an age-old tradition!
