If you are shopping for furniture, chances are you are a bit frustrated just like we were. We would go into the big furniture stores and would find something we almost liked… but it had to have _____, or needed _____ (fill in the blanks). Unfortunately, what was on the showroom floor is what they were selling. And the nicer furniture already had high prices. If we were going to spend that much money, we were going to get it just the way we wanted. But we couldn’t find what we really wanted anywhere.
Living in Amish country Lancaster, PA, and already having relationships with a bunch of Amish furniture builders, we decided to put our frustration to work for us. We found a picture of furniture online that we liked, and had it custom made by a local Amish wood shop. It turned out beautiful, was just the way we wanted and couldn’t have been happier.
As the years passed, the thoughts of building an online store featuring Amish furniture kept surfacing. As much as we tried to dismiss it for all the reasons we could imagine, the passion continued to increase. We finally pursued it and opened Custom Furniture Warehouse with the emphasis being on “custom” and quality Amish furniture.
We wanted a site where people could do what we did; submit a photo of some cool furniture item they found and get it custom made by reputable, skilled craftsmen. You can now do that by visiting the custom furniture page. We also loaded our online warehouse full of quality furniture that Amish already make, and allow people to order the pieces they want, the quantity they want, and the finishes they want… or customize even further with their own requests.
Our vision is for the website to inspire and help people find the furniture they want and be able to customize and configure it the way they want it to be. Thanks for your interest and we look forward to helping you!
