					                  The Benefits of Buying American Made Furniture

There are hundreds of furniture stores that supply many different styles to furnish a
home. How does anyone know which one is right for them? There are a few simple
steps to take to determine the perfect fit for any home. The most obvious decisions
include deciding on the right style and color choices. A decision that might not be as
obvious to everyone; however is the need to look at where the furniture is made. This
should play an important role in the decision of any furniture purchase, however, as it
will play a role in its quality and the impact on the environment.

Price is Not the Most Important

When purchasing furniture, price should not be the deciding factor. Of course, everyone
needs to stay within their budget, but care should be taken not to jump at the first
inexpensive piece of furniture found. Time should be taken to consider where the items
are coming from and if they are made from quality materials. Chances are the discount
or significantly lower priced products were not made in the U.S. and are likely much
poorer quality than their American or possibly Amish furniture counterparts.


The main difference between furniture that originated abroad and those that are made
here in the United States is the quality. From a distance, the imported furniture might
look just as good as the products from an Amish furniture store. That is until a closer
look is taken or the products are touched. Don’t be afraid to pull the drawers out, knock
on the wood and truly test the quality of the products. Chances are that the imports will
feel weak, look cheaper up close and not withstand the test of time.

Attention to Detail

American made, Amish furniture is made with small hand tools with the utmost
precision. There are no assembly lines or the chance of overlooking a major flaw. They
are made under the attention of the Amish people that take incredible pride in their work
and let no flaw pass through their inspection. There are no shortcuts taken, giving
consumers the ability to have furniture that stands the test of time for many years to

Support American Workers

As the economy tries to recover, it is important for everyone to support American made
products. When consumers purchase Amish bedroom furniture or Amish dining room
furniture, they are supporting the workers of America rather than supporting the
products that are imported from other countries. In turn, these Americans use this
money to continue to use other American services to meet their needs, which enables
the entire the economy to benefit.

Go Green

The focus today is on environmentally friendly choices. Consumers that choose to shop
at an Amish furniture store are doing their part to help support the environment. The
wood that is chosen by the Amish is typically local and is harvested using the most
sustainable forestry practices. In addition to using environmentally friendly lumber, the
Amish also use very little energy which means that the products that they produce are
even more environmentally friendly. From the very start to the day they are
shipped, Amish furniture supports the environment.
