The furniture store at Mentor TV • Amish furniture
For those who truly appreciate quality furniture, Mentor TV now features a great selection of handcrafted Amish furniture including TV stands, TV consoles, home theater credenzas, entertainment centers and wall units.
Large furniture manufacturers are busy building an empire of "disposable, throw away furniture". Year after year, technology allows them to slice wood veneers thinner and thinner. A couple years of use and it is ready to be thrown into the landfill. Hint: "heirloom quality" furniture is not "Made in China" and certainly does not come "ready to assemble" (usually with a 20-page manual and bags full of miscellaneous parts that takes hours to put together).
The Amish lavish their devotion to quality products as they do to their faith. Woodworking is a trade that is passed down from generation to generation with very little allowance for change or adaptation to modern methods. They build their furniture to last decades and use only solid woods and hydraulic and pneumatic or hand powered tools. There is no particle board and no laminates used in Amish built furniture. It is valued for it's sustainability. Every piece is different because every grain is different and the attention to detail highlights those differences.
