Comments Off on Buying Amish Bedroom Furniture
Buying new bedroom furniture can be a daunting experience. This is particularly true since there are so many types of bedroom furniture available. Also, numerous online and ‘brick and mortar’ stores sell bedroom furniture. But if you’re interested in top-quality, solid hardwood furniture, your best source is custom Amish furniture. So here are some key questions you need to consider in Buying Amish Bedroom Furniture:
Space: How Big is Your Bedroom?
1. Have you measured the space in your room? Does it allow for just a bed and nightstand or an entire bedroom set?
2. Is one nightstand sufficient or will you need a nightstand on either side of your bed?
3. Does the bedroom come with storage, such as a walk-in closet?
There are several storage solutions for bedrooms with little or no walk-in closets, as you’ll see below.
Furnishings: What Pieces Do You Want/Need?
Great. You’re written down the dimensions of your bedroom. Now you need to consider what pieces you want.
4. Will a dressing table, mirror, and chair be required?
5. Do you need a chest or dresser with lots of storage space in the drawers, or does a chest with a standard height and depth suffice?
6. Does an armoire with a clothes hanger rod, shelves or an entertainment compartment fit your needs?
7. Do you need a blanket chest or cedar chest to store blankets, keepsakes and the like?
8. Will a full-size bed be large enough? Or do you prefer a queen or king-size bed?
Décor and Style: What Look Are You Going For?
9. Have you considered pieces like a lingerie chest, jewelry armoire, and cheval mirror? Since these occupy floor space, they need to be considered in how you design your floorplan.
10. Do you have a preference for furniture style (such as Mission, Shaker, Rustic or Modern)? This is important, since you may wish your bedroom furniture to complement furniture elsewhere in your home.
11. Do you have a wood preference and/or preference for furniture color? The most popular wood species are maple, oak, cherry, and hickory. Your choice of stain/varnish affects the look of the wood. Or you may wish to have your furniture painted, such as an off-white shade. This totally obscures the actual color of the wood.
Budget: How Much are You Prepared to Spend?
12. What is your budget? Of course, your budget will determine what type, and how many furniture pieces you will buy.

Comments Off on Rosemont Bed with Canopy: Sleep Like a Noble
As homeowners, we like to embellish our homes with decorative elements and furniture that serve a functional purpose, but also carry warm vibes about distant places and cultures. Italian-themed garden sculptures, Spanish adobe architectural features, Oriental rugs, and English country gardens come to mind. The Rosemont Bed with Canopy from Brandenberry Amish Furniture lets you make such a statement. So let’s explore Rosemont Bed with Canopy: Sleep Like a Noble.
Throwback to Medieval Europe
Canopy beds, like the Rosemont Bed with Canopy, date back to medieval Europe. But the original canopy beds had more to do with privacy and warmth than with status, romance or comfort. Because in medieval Europe, nobles and their attendants often slept in the same room. So to enjoy some privacy, the lords back in the day slept in canopy beds. And they totally enclosed the beds with drapes. Of course, central heating did not exist back then. So heavy curtains helped keep the occupants of the bed warm.
What’s more, the noblemen ordered craftsmen to create intricate carvings on the headboard and tall posts. So canopy beds became intricate works of art. Just like the Rosemont Bed with Canopy.
Rosemont Bed with Canopy: Sleep Like a Noble
An elegantly carved, arched headboard and four tall posts are the first things you notice about the Rosemont Bed with Canopy. Notice also the raised paneling and the rich, solid hardwood construction. Also, the bed pictured is queen size. And Amish craftsmen hewed it from cherry wood and gave it a rich tobacco stain.
Amish Crafted for Beauty, Strength, and Durability
The best Amish craftsmen in the Midwest painstakingly handcraft each Rosemont Bed with Canopy. Also, the Amish cabinetmakers draw from the skills handed down from their ancestors. And they use solid hardwoods like cherry, maple, and oak. So the bed you choose will be incredibly sturdy. In fact, with proper care, it should become a family heirloom.
What’s more, you can customize the bed. Just tell Brandenberry your choices for wood species, bed size, stain and the like.

Comments Off on Staying Beautiful: Custom Vanities and Dressing Tables
No piece of furniture screams “a fashionable woman lives here” like a vanity or dressing table in a bedroom. And if you currently own a vanity, or are planning to acquire one, you’re in good company. Because fashionable women have been using custom vanities and bedroom dressing tables for more than two centuries. So let’s talk about Staying Beautiful: Custom Vanities and Dressing Tables.
Dressing Stations for Wealthy Women
Vanities and dressing tables made their debut in France and England in the late 17th century. In fact, these tables were initially used to store cosmetic items. And well-to-do women wrapped cosmetics in small towels, which they stored in the vanities. Some dressing tables in Europe were called “toilet tables,” because they had a hand washbasin. (Indoor plumbing did not exist back then.) Also, people added stools, so maids could help style the hair of ladies of the house.
What’s more, rich folks ordered their vanities and dressing tables in ornate designs. And these designs are replicated in today’s vanities.
Chippendale, Queen Anne, and More
Cabinetmakers in the United States built dressing tables with simpler designs than their European counterparts. The Chippendale style was one of the most popular. And Queen Anne wasn’t very far behind. By the latter part of the 19th Century, the dressing table became a matching part of the bedroom suite. Hollywood films of the 1920s and ‘30s popularized dressing tables and vanities as a natural item of furniture for every glamorous woman.
Staying Beautiful: Custom Vanities and Dressing Tables
Today, discriminating women have lots of options for vanities and dressing tables. But furniture lovers looking for great design, solid hardwood construction, beauty, and durability turn to Brandenberry Amish Furniture. In fact, Brandenbery offers a wide variety of wood vanities and dressing tables. They include Queen Anne, Shaker, and Mission styles. With fixed, tilt and tri-view mirrors. And, of course, padded stools.
Brandenberry: Where Beauty is More than Skin Deep
You’ve heard the axiom, beauty is only skin deep. The Amish men who build Brandenberry’s vanities and dressing tables prove that saying wrong. Sure, they give every unit a beautiful exterior. With intricately carved woodwork, rich finishes and eye-catching hardware.
But the bedroom vanity or dressing table you order from Brandenberry is beautiful to the core. Because the craftsmen build each piece from solid hardwoods. Like oak, cherry, maple, and hickory. And they use traditional woodworking methods. Like drawers with dovetail joints. And no bargain substitutes like particle board anywhere. So the vanity you choose should, with proper care, last for generations to come.

Comments Off on Storage Beds: A New Trend in Bedroom Furniture
The furniture industry pays a lot of attention to the variety of storage chests and elegant beds available for the bedroom. Yet, the most exciting new trend in bedroom furniture is a combination of chests and beds. The storage bed. So let’s take a look at Storage Beds: A New Trend in Bedroom Furniture.
Storage Beds: A New Trend in Bedroom Furniture
The concept of a storage bed is so simple, it begs the question: why didn’t someone think of it before? The area under a traditional bed is like a vast, largely unused space. Yes, some people place their shoes there. Or hard-to-store stuff like suitcases and extra boxes. Also, dogs and cats like to hide there. Especially if they’re trying to escape a thunderstorm – or a bath. And worse of all, you have to vacuum it ever so often. And this is quite a feat, especially in the case of king and queen beds!
Storage Beds: Perfect Storage Solution
Getting a storage bed for your bedroom solves three big problems. First, the drawers give you needed storage space for bedding items – like sheets, pillowcases, and blankets. Alternately, you can use it for clothing or keepsakes. Secondly, storage beds give your room a neater appearance as the beautiful woodwork of the bed fills the space between the mattress and the floor. And thirdly, storage beds eliminate the chore of tediously maneuvering the vacuum cleaner’s extension tool back and forth under the bed to suck up the non-stop collection of dust.
Storage Beds from Brandenberry Amish Furniture
Brandenberry Amish Furniture offers an impressive collection of storage beds. And skilled Amish craftsmen custom-craft each bed from solid hardwoods. Like cherry, maple, and oak. In fact, the deluxe Pine Hollow Storage Bed (shown) is an example of an Amish storage bed.
The bed itself features three full-extension drawers on each side. So you’ll enjoy lots of convenient storage space. Plus, the drawers open full extension. As a result, you get easy access to entire drawers. Also, dovetail joints in the drawers enhance strength and durability.
Other storage beds from Brandenberry include the Bookcase Bed, Classic Mission Storage Bed, Highland Bed, Jacobson Bed, Mondovi Storage Bed, Storage Bed Rail, Superior Shaker Storage Bed and the Traditional Captain’s Bed.
