Style Information

Handcrafted furniture from Amish Country has been stereotyped by a style. Every effort needs to be made to break this stereotype.

Design

Some of us may prefer the austere beauty of Shaker design while others of us appreciate the ornate, darkly stained wood of the Traditional style. Whatever the case, the Hardwood Furniture Guild is sure to have a style for you.

Functionality

A chair is made for sitting on and a part of good design is flawless functionality. We pride ourselves in furniture that serves its function well, whether that be sitting up to a dining table for a home cooked meal or providing a place for your child to sleep at night. The unassuming sensibility of our culture pairs well with our aim to provide well-designed funtional furniture.



Industrial

Anywhere between rustic, sleek, and edgy, the industrial style incorporates metal with hardwood for a nice contrast of mediums.
