					Amish furniture making is strongly rooted in tradition,
and in particular Amish mission furniture is prized for
 using this design philosophy that has been literally
  handed down from generation to generation. The
Mission style of furniture making emerged during the
nineteenth century and designs that follow this style
  generally give emphasis to simple horizontal and
   vertical lines and flat panels that accentuate the
 grain of the wood. The kind of wood that is used is
very important, and therefore it is oak and other hard
  woods that are picked for construction of mission
                        furniture.

Amish mission furniture has a long tradition of producing handcrafted
furniture that is upright, solidly built, sturdy and heirloom quality As the
mission style of furniture provided people in the 19th century with an
option to mass produced furniture during the Industrial revolution as well
as the ornateness of Victorian styles, so does it offer the modern buyer a
break from soulless, assembly line furniture that we commonly find today
