Durable, Solid Wood Construction
Amish furniture is no doubt quality-built and highly durable. The best pieces of wood are hand-selected and not used until it reaches its ideal maturity to maximize the strength and quality of the material. Using solid wood has many benefits, including the fact that hardwoods offer greater density, essentially making them stronger than composite wood-types that you typically find from mass-produced furniture.
The traditional methods used by the Amish have been passed down from generations of furniture makers. By applying these methods, they are able to continuously produce quality products That stand the test of time.
Amish furniture makers use environmentally-friendly methods when producing their products. While most furniture makers mass produce their pieces, the Amish do not use electricity while producing their products, nor do they drive motor vehicles to their workshop – both aiding in the reduction of pollution.
Additionally, the Amish use only real wood products rather than composite woods and the communities even plant new trees to replace those that they harvest.
Amish furniture makers utilize the practice of using as much of the wood as possible, producing little-to-no waste as much as possible, but on the off chance that there are extra pieces or scraps, they will repurpose them to use in another piece.
Amish furniture comes in a variety of styles for each and every room in your home. They offer many customizations, giving you the ability to personalize your space. At Metropolitan Furniture, we offer 5 different wood types, 17 paint and stain choices, and customizable sizes.
