A Hawkeye haven for Plain woodworking

Amish have found a home in Iowa since the first settlers arrived in the Kalona area of southeast Iowa in the 1840s.   Amish furniture in Iowa is a relatively more recent phenomenon.  Amish have long found a happy home on the farm, with dairies and cash crops providing a living for Amish families for generations.

Iowa Amish furniture craftsmen typically work from shops located on the home property

In recent decades an entrepreneurial trend has swept Amish society.  Ever-large families and high land prices in their traditional areas have driven Amish to open a wide range of small businesses, including dry goods and crafts stores, salvage groceries, metal and machine shops, engine repair, and numerous others.  The wood industry has proven most popular for Amish, however, with a wide range of wood-related businesses emerging, furniture-making chief among them.

Amish have proven adept at crafting a diverse range of home furnishings.  Amish furniture is not just plain and simple, running the gamut from the traditional styles such as Mission, Shaker, Queen Anne and others, to contemporary styles at home in an urban loft or suburban household.  Amish have developed a deserved reputation for quality craftsmanship.  Perusing the literature potential buyers will also notice an emphasis on hardwood construction over particle board, veneer and pressed wood.  Oak, quarter-sawn oak, maple, cherry, and walnut are commonly-used woods in Amish furniture workshops.

Amish furniture craftsmen are remarkably versatile, stepping outside of their plain sensibilities to customize furniture to client’s needs.  Custom furniture craftsmanship is frequently seen among Amish, in addition to standard furniture lines.  Amish entrepreneurs show a high responsiveness to trends, as well as exhibiting a creative side in innovating new designs and styles.

Iowa Amish furniture locations

Iowa’s largest Amish settlements are found in three locations: 1) Kalona, in Washington and Johnson Counties in SE Iowa; 2) Bloomfield, in David County, also in the southeast, and 3) Buchanan County, in northeastern Iowa (Read more on Iowa Amish).

Amish furniture seekers, looking for Amish furniture direct from the source, are probably better served in the first 2 of these communities, which are more progressive relative to the highly conservative Buchanan County Amish.  Higher levels of technology generally permit Amish more versatility and scale in furniture production;  however more conservative Amish communities also produce furniture, though often on a smaller scale.

Like Amish in most other states, Iowa’s Amish population continues to grow.  New generations of Amish follow in parents’ footsteps in opening wood working shops.  Iowa Amish furniture seekers have a number of options, from finding Amish furniture direct at the source, or by purchasing it from a range of dealers across the Hawkeye State, or visiting an online Amish furniture dealer from the comfort of home.
