Solid Hardwood Furniture: The Classic and Timeless Choice

At Amish Excellence, discover an unlimited selection of authentic, hand-crafted Amish furniture that will complement any décor and design preferences in your home.  In addition to shaker, mission, or craftsman style furniture, we also offer a large selection of exceptional hardwood furniture in modern, contemporary, and Asian-inspired styles.  And as more American furniture manufactures turn to offshore sources, the design, comfort, and unparalleled quality craftsmanship of Amish furniture is more highly sought after than ever before.

For centuries, cherry, oak, maple, walnut, and other American hardwoods have been the preferred selection in fine furniture. Design trends have come and gone, but solid hardwood furniture continues to be the classic choice.

Every piece of our furniture is unique. While many customers prefer a natural hardwood look, others are in search of more dramatic effects that can be produced by our Amish artisans using a variety of special techniques. But a word of caution: Industry terms such as “oak finish” or “cherry finish” often used to describe manufactures’ furniture may refer to a finish or wood tone and not the wood used.  At Amish Excellence, all of our furniture is made from 100% solid hardwood.

American cherry is the most popular hardwood used in bedroom, dining room, and home office furniture and entertainment cabinets.  Walnut, maple, red, and white oak with satin finishes are also popular.

Hardwoods, while elegant, are meant for daily use. Households with small children and pets are no problem for quality solid hardwood furniture. Aristovar Catalyzed Varnish, used on every piece of furniture sold at Amish Excellence, is a state-of-the-art varnish with excellent resistance to water, alcohol, scratching, yellowing, common household spills, and marring. You can keep your furniture looking new by cleaning surfaces with a soft, damp cloth and then wipe dry.  A mild detergent can be used, but avoid cleaners containing ammonia. For added protection, apply a quality furniture polish, without silicone or wax, with a clean, soft cloth.

I invite you to discover the large selection of our hand-crafted, 100% hardwood, Amish made furniture on display at Amish Excellence. Our designers will help you design your new piece and select the hardwood, stain, and finish. You’ll be amazed when you discover that you can purchase custom, hand-crafted, 100% American made hardwood furniture for less than stock furniture found in area showrooms.
