Is our dining room, bedroom, living room and childrens furniture made with solid wood?

Construction of our furniture is of solid wood taken from North American hardwood trees. In both the manufacturing and finishing, we try to bring forth the character of the wood. The beauty of hardwood is an expression of nature. It is not engineered nor is it synthetic, its beauty is not only “skin deep”. Just as every tree in nature is a little different from the next, every product is one of a kind. Solid hardwood furniture offers pleasure and utility throughout an entire lifetime and beyond. Enduring designs and quality construction allow solid hardwood furniture to hold its value decade after decade.

How do I care for my wood furniture?

Solid hardwood oak, cherry, maple and walnut furniture offers great resistance to marring and scratching. If it gets damaged, it can be repaired because it is solid wood throughout. Likewise, hardwoods are natural fibers. Even furniture which has a good protective finish may swell or shrink slightly from one season to the next. Extremely dry conditions will have an opening effect in the grain of wood, while in a damp environment, the wood can swell and warp out of shape. Also exposure to direct sunlight may cause changes in the woods finish. Exercise care to avoid these extremes.

Where is your furniture manufactured?

All of our hardwood tables are manufactured in Shipshewanna, Indiana handcrafted by Amish Craftsmen. The rest of our living room, dining room, bedroom, childrens and outdoor furniture is also manufactured Shipshewanna, Indiana as well as a portion which comes from Lancaster County, Pennsylvania.
