Legacy of Amish Woodworking: Early American Amish Furniture
Early American Amish Furniture can be traced back to European migrants who settled along the Eastern seaboard of the United States. They used their native trades, including woodworking, to create a sustained existence. Therefore bringing classic European furniture styles to the United States. Hence beginning a slow transformation in style and design to suit the new surroundings.
Waves of Amish migrants would leave Switzerland to form communities in Pennsylvania and parts of the Mid-West. The Amish ethics of integrity, self-sufficiency and hard work would infuse their daily work. Thus including the crafting of furniture. The Mission, Shaker and Queen Anne styles would come into being during the era of Early American Furniture. As well as a variety of distinct design features.
Careful, detailed craftsmanship, high quality wood selection and custom construction make our furniture special. Come visit us in Shipshewana to see why the legacy of Early American Furniture is still alive among the Amish.
