Illinois Amish woodworking tradition

Amish have lived in the Land of Lincoln since the mid-1800s.  The Illinois Amish population is dominated by the Arthur Amish community, a sprawling settlement of nearly 30 Amish churches and over 4,000 individuals.

Among the still-numerous dairy farms the buzz of saws and pop of air-hammers rings out from myriad unassuming woodworking shops.  Amish have established a firm furniture tradition here in the Prairie State heartland, with dozens of workshops bustling with activity 6 days a week.  Local Amish craft everything from custom kitchen cabinets to outdoor furniture, gazebos, and traditional indoor furniture including bedroom sets, office pieces such as desks and computer centers, and children’s furniture.

The buggy meets the buzz-saw: Amish furniture manufacturing has flourished in Illinois

Though the area is not as densely-populated a region as that inhabited by their Plain cousins to the east, the Arthur Amish have likewise been on the exit from farming for some decades.  Amish in the area pursue alternative occupations besides furniture-making, including home construction, work in local factories, and other small businesses such as metal and machine shops.

Yet occupationally, the Arthur community is driven by entrepreneurship, and in particular its many cabinet shops and other wood-related businesses.  Entrepreneurship is not limited to males–Amish women run their own small companies, ranging from dry goods stores to a drive-thru coffee shop!

Arthur has become well-known as a Midwest furniture destination.  Within easy drive of Chicago, Indianapolis, and St. Louis, the area attracts its share of customers from large urban areas.

Amish furniture buyers are attracted to Amish-made products for numerous reasons, including quality, value, and attention to detail.  Illinois Amish craftsmen create furniture from a range of woods, including hickory, oak, cherry, beech, poplar, maple, walnut, and more.  Many shops specialize in built-to-order projects.  Others feature set lines of furniture incorporating styles including Mission, Shaker, Queen Anne, and other traditional designs, as well as more contemporary furniture.

Outside of Arthur, pockets of Amish can be found scattered around Illinois, with their own small woodworking shops.  Amish settlements can be found in roughly a dozen counties in the state, including Jefferson, Jackson, and McDonough Counties.  Above all, the Arthur Amish settlement is the center of Amish furniture making in Illinois.  But as the listing here demonstrates, you don’t have to travel to this central Illinois community for Amish furniture–with many Amish furniture retailers in and around Chicago, Springfield, Bloomington, Champaign-Urbana, and other Illinois cities.
