Indiana Amish woodworkers
Though the Indiana Amish population is large, as a whole, Indiana does not have the same furniture tradition as seen in the other two big Amish states, Ohio and Pennsyvlania. One reason for this is that Amish in the state have more readily pursued alternative occupations such as factory work–particularly in the large northern Indiana communities of Nappanee and Elkhart-Lagrange Counties.
However, due to its sizeable Amish population, there are still quite a few Amish furniture craftsmen in the Hoosier State. Though higher proportions of Amish in northern Indiana work in RV factories, dozens of Amish woodworking and cabinet shops can be found throughout the area.
In the southern Indiana community of Daviess County, entrepreneurship thrives, and numerous small-scale furniture and cabinet makers create a wide range of wood products. Amish furniture makers can be found in the large Swiss Amish settlement based around Berne in Adams County (south of Fort Wayne), but relatively few exist in the Allen County community. Pennsylvania Amish transplants to Parke and Wayne Counties have brought their knack for furniture craftsmanship with them. And a number of furniture makers can be found in the relatively small Milroy community, not quite an hour from Indianapolis.
Appeal of Amish furniture
Much has been written on the attraction of Amish furniture. Boiling it down, there are a few key elements to the appeal of Amish woodwork. One is the reputation for high quality work which Amish possess. Rooted in Christian values, Amish culture praises a job well done. Amish are behooved to do well unto others in everyday life, and this approach naturally extends into the business arena.
Amish craftsmanship is also associated with the use of high-quality materials. Pressed wood, fiberboard, and veneer are uncommon to Amish wood shops. Amish typically produce their furniture using top-notch hardwoods, ranging from oak and maple to cherry, walnut, ash, and poplar.
The versatility of Amish furniture craftsmen is a big part of the Amish furniture appeal. Though Amish society, guided by cultural norms encoded in a church-wide Ordnung, limits the type of things Amish themselves possess, this doesn’t mean they don’t create products tailored to an English public. Contemporary styles, pieces that would be out of place in an Amish home, such as computer desks or entertainment centers, and highly fancy designs and woodwork are all well within the Amish repertoire. Custom woodwork by Amish artisans is available in many Amish shops. In addition to more modern styles, Amish also create a full range of classic motifs including the Queen Anne, Mission, Shaker, and Craftsman styles of furniture.
Finally, you can’t overlook the appeal of Amish culture itself. In a world of mass-produced commodities, handcrafted furniture from a family-owned small business has a natural cachet. Buyers of Amish furniture appreciate being able to support a traditional way of life. The process of buying Amish furniture can even be an experience itself, with visits to Amish communities part of the journey for those who wish to partake in a more “hands-on” approach to selecting their Amish furniture pieces.
Amish woodworking and traditional lifestyles
Amish society has been most closely associated with an agrarian style of life. The first Amish arriving in America in the 1700s brought with them a European tradition of agriculture and animal husbandry. The agricultural life served the Amish well for their first two centuries in North America.
In the latter half of the 20th century, however, pressures arose which compelled the Amish to take a different path. While numerous Amish remain in farming, small-scale entrepreneurship has come to be seen as the most viable option for preserving a family-oriented, Christian community-dependent way of living. As prices of land have skyrocketed in traditional Amish areas, and the pace of childbirth has held steady (along with high numbers of Amish adolescents choosing to join their parents’ church), farming has become less and less a feasible option.
Small shops, and in particular woodworking businesses have offered a means of supporting a family on the home land in a manner reminiscent to the farm. Additionally, an Amish father is able to remain at home as a positive influence in his family and children’s development. The presence of a business on the home property also gives children a chance to develop a strong work ethic.
For these and other reasons, small shops–which would also include quilt stores, dry goods stores, bent ‘n’ dents, machine shops, and many others–have rapidly grown in popularity among Amish. Like other small enterprises, furniture-making has offered special appeal to Amish, who place high value on family, community, and maintaining plain values in the face of worldly influences.
Hoosier State Amish craftsmanship
Furniture-making looks to remain a popular occupation for Indiana Amish. Following recent severe challenges to the RV industry in northern Indiana, resulting in layoffs and unemployment among the area’s heavily RV-dependent Amish, entrepreneurship in the form of furniture shops and other businesses may offer greater appeal to the Plain community. Regardless, there will likely be no shortage in the Amish furniture supply in Indiana in the future, with numerous Indiana Amish furniture sellers across the Hoosier State.

The Lagrange Elkhart area list has a LOT of manufacturers missing and outdated info and a business no longer open. Just thought you might want to know.
Thanks F Frey, as I said this is not a comprehensive list. I actually have quite a few more to add to the Elkhart/Lagrange section, which I hope to get to soon.
And you know what–it would be helpful if you could indicate which business is no longer open, if you don’t mind? With any list of businesses that is going to occur. Thanks.

There is also Riegenthaler’s (Spellcheck me please) in Shipshewana, just yards from the Blue Gate restaurant, unless they have gone out of business in the last 8 months, which I find unlikely.
Also, most of the RV manufacterers have closed-only a handful remain open.
