14 Year Old Silky Terrier Cozy on a Colbran Dining Chair

February 13th, 2015

 

This charming photo comes to us from Jo Ann Masiello in Staten Island, NY who purchased the Ridgewood Single Pedestal Dining Table and four Colbran Dining Chairs from us in September.  She chose the Chestnut stain on Cherry, and a solid top table.

 

Well done, Jo Ann, great choice on the stain selection

 

Our new table and chairs are very finely made. Please thank the maker. As you can see, our 14 year old silky terrier is also very pleased.

 

Best regards,
Jo Ann Masiello

Dark Two Tone Mission & Queen Anne Style Dining Set from Bridgewater, MA

February 12th, 2015

 

We like the unique dark two tone finish of Classic Cherry and black paint on brown maple wood shown on Jim Manning’s Estate Double Pedestal table and Douglas Dining Chairs they ordered from us in May.  It’s a bold look that makes a statement of authority and symbolizes longevity.

 

I am writing to you to let you know how happy I am with the craftsmanship & quality of the dining room set recently purchased. I must say it far exceeded my expectations. I own a precision gear manufacturing company who supplies NASA & other major aerospace manufacturers with high precision gear products, so I do take craftsmanship & quality very seriously.

 

I must say when you stated “heirloom quality furniture” you certainly delivered!!!

 

Thank you,
Jim

This dining room set consisting of the Cambridge Trestle Table and the Breckenridge Dining Chairs was sent to us from Seymour, Texas by Colleen Martin.

 

These pieces were built with Oak and splashed with our Malanguania stain, is 42 x 66″ in size, and is stocked with two fixed and two removable leaves.

 

We’d like to note how well the table and chairs match the existing cabinetry in the background.

The entire set is built in brown maple.  The table size is 38 x 60″ and is accessorized with one leaf with a skirt, self store, square round top, and round-over edges.

The Graceful Malibu Dining Chair with Madison Legged Table

February 11th, 2015

This shot was sent to us by Vicki Milton showing off a new dining set recently purchased from Amish Furniture Factory. We love the contrast the dark Nutmeg on maple wood finish provides against the lighter colored dining area.

 

The graceful curves of the Malibu dining chair also contrasts well with the angles lines of the Madison Legged dining table.  Well done, Vicki, and congratulations on your new purchase!

Dining Chairs: Wood or Upholstered Seats

Hand Cut & Installed

The ability to customize our Amish furniture is really what sets it apart from the competitors.

 

Many different looks can be achieved from customizing the same dining chair model, and changing the seat from wood to upholstered is where the magic happens and where you get the most bang for the buck.

 

Wood seats are standard on the majority of dining chairs in the line, with the exception of a few chairs such as the Ashley chair.   Otherwise, upholstery is an option upgrade available on most chairs.

 

With over 200 different upholstery options available, from fabric, to leather, to eco-cotton, no one two chairs have to be alike.

 

Additionally, we allow customers to select and purchase upholstery from 3rd party sources.

 

If you let us know which pieces you want upholstered, we will be happy to provide total square yardage required to upholster your order.

 

This is a great way to match existing pieces you own, or to get a perfect match to your interior decor.

 

Upholstery is securely attached to the seat by artfully wrapping it under the edges of the wood surface, then stapling it into place on the bottom before the seat is attached with screws to the chair frame.  It’s easy to remove the seat to have the chairs re-upholstered later down the line if a change or repairs are needed.

Dining Arm Chair vs Side Chair Option Comparison

February 5th, 2015

Each dining chair model can be customized in several different ways which we will discuss in the post.  The base model of a dining chair starts out as a side chair (no arms) and a wood seat.

 

Arms can be added to a side chair to make an arm chair, which are ideal for positioning at the heads of the table.  The below pictured Beaumont Dining Chair clearly illustrates the difference between an arm chair (left), and a side chair (right).

 

The primary benefits of an arm chair are added strength, durability, and comfort, while an arm chair maintains a cleaner look.

 

All of our arm chairs are designed to be compatible with our tables so the top of the arm clears the bottom edge of the table skirts, allowing them to be fully pushed in under the table for better space efficiency.

An Overview of Dining Table Edge Shapes

February 4th, 2015

In this video Laura shows samples of different table edges that are available on dining tables.  The table edge shape or contour refers to the style of cut that is made all around the outer edge of the dining table top, which is usually one inch thick or more.

 

In other words, the edge shape is best seen from a direct side profile, but each edge shape can bring out a completely different look and feel in each table.  Tables are built with standard edges that are selected by the builder, but can easily be customized for any table based on the customer’s preferences.

 

When it comes to selecting an edge shape, we recommend being less analytical about which edge best goes with the rest of the table or your room, but to simply select the edge shape you are most drawn to.  With this approach, we notice the overall look of the table and how it looks in the room falls into place.

The Cambridge Dining Set Transforming a Modern-Rustic Space

January 29th, 2015

 

This photo from Melissa and Troy Walth in Wishek, North Dakota serves as a perfect example of how a new custom stained dining set can enhance and transform a room though the blending of colors and lines.  They did a great job selecting their wood and stain colors, Burnt Umber on Brown Maple which harmonizes nicely with the room accents.

 

The set consists of the Cambridge Trestle dining table in the 42 x 66″ size, and has four leaves with self store.  Accompanying the table is the 60″ Cambridge bench and two Olde Century dining side chairs.

 

We received our table last night, and absolutely LOVE it!! Exactly what I was picturing. The quality is very impressive. The truck driver arrived and did an awesome job at handling and unloading the dining set. We will defiantly be spreading good words about AmishFurnitureFactory.com!! Thank you so much for all the information on your products…..it will be a set that will be past on for generations.
