Charming & Eclectic Rustic Bedroom Furniture

Monday, September 13th, 2021

Paul and Linda were so excited when they received their Lexington set from Amish Furniture Factory. They particularly like the rustic look of the rich tobacco stain color of these pieces in their bedroom. Their favorite? It’s the center stage charmer – Lexington Regular King Bed!

Here’s what they said:

We have been looking at Amish furniture for years in stores around the country!

We really loved the styles, colors and workmanship of the furniture.

We found the Amish Furniture Factory through a google search and after getting samples from them, we decided to place an order. The process was so easy and the people you talk to on the phone are very nice and very helpful.

Our furniture was delivered and unloaded by a gentleman and his son, who were very professional and extremely careful with our furniture. They even arranged the delivery schedule around our vacation!

We are very happy with our bedroom furniture and will be ordering other pieces for our new house in the near future.

 A Guide on Choosing the Right Wood for Your Furniture

Furniture made of wood has a special warmth and depth that is impossible to duplicate with other materials. There is a wide variety woods that also can be used to construct this type of furniture. Each provides its own unique look to whatever piece in which it is included. Enjoy reading the list below to the characteristics and uses for each wood listed.



List of Woods:


1. Oak – This wood part of the hardwood category of woods. It is one of the best-known woods for furniture. It is strong and durable yet easy to work with, as you make your piece. There is both red oak and white oak, but white oak is typically preferred. This type of wood is ideal for chairs, dressers, chest of drawers, end tables, coffee table, desks and many more things. I have had a chest of drawers that was my grandmother’s for many years that is still in excellent shape today. This shows how durable the wood is. Many American styles of furniture include oak. Oak is one of the pricier woods though, used in making furniture. This has to do with the fact that an oak tree grows to maturity slower than some other trees do.

Are All Amish Buggies Black?

Monday, October 31st, 2011


By Tobin Dimmitt


Amish horse and buggy rigs are a rather common sight all over the country. In southern Iowa, within 30 miles of our office, it’s not uncommon to see Amish buggies driving along the shoulder of state highways as the regular traffic passes by. I must say that I thought all Amish buggies were completely black in color, as all the buggies I’ve personally seen looked black to me.

 Weller's New Skyline Slat Sofa Recliner - Amish Furniture Factory



“I enjoyed my experience ordering a custom sofa from Amish Factory. I wanted a specific style and color and no where did any furniture store offer what I wanted: a mission style sofa with dual recliners. AF did. They supplied me with material and wood samples. Although ordering a large item sight unseen gave me a bit of anxiety, I checked out AF with various business organizations. Satisfied, I ordered my sofa and I love it! The colors are perfect and exactly what I had envisioned. It was made within the time frame I was quoted and was delivered by a very nice fellow. Thanks so much.”  Kathleen Weller
