Amish Furniture – Maine
Pa Dutch craftsmanship in New England
A guide to Amish furniture in Maine The 3 Amish communities in Maine may not be large, but are the only Amish presence in New England. And with their own resident Amish woodworkers, they’re the places to get direct-from-the-source Amish furniture in the Pine Tree State. Non-Amish furniture dealers also sell Amish products in Maine, within range of Portland, Bangor, Auburn, and other cities.
Amish furniture has gained renown for its high quality and attention to detail, use of top-notch materials such as solid hardwoods (oak, cherry, maple, walnut) and fine finishes, as well as its surprising range and diversity (from traditional styles such as Shaker, Mission, and Queen Anne, to modern designs). Beds, tables, chairs, desks, bookcases, rockers, and outdoor furniture are among the many varieties offered by Amish wood craftsmen.

Oasis of Amish furniture in ME
Maine is unusual among New England states for its Amish communities. As the only state in the region with an Amish presence, Maine also contains the area’s only Amish woodworkers. Maine Amish communities include 2 in Aroostook County–at Fort Fairfield, and Smyrna–and one in Waldo County, near the town of Unity.
Amish woodworkers in Maine and other states enjoy a positive reputation thanks to their commitment to work well-done, an emphasis on quality revolving around top-notch materials such as solid hardwoods, as well as their low-cost orientation which allows them to pass savings on to their furniture buyers. Though Amish-made furniture is not always the cheapest, it typically represents a good long-term choice due to its quality and durability. All of these aspects help to provide great value to Amish furniture purchasers.
As Amish migrate to less-typical locations, such as Maine, the Southern states, and the West, they often make a living in their new locations through small business. Popular enterprises among Amish include dry goods stores, machine shops, crafts businesses, and health-related businesses. Perhaps the most popular trade among Amish entrepreneurs is woodworking.
Wood furniture craftsmanship allows Amish artisans to use manual skills while harnessing powers of creativity and the productive output typical to Amish labor. Amish woodworking shops are typically situated at the home, where family members or Amish neighbors are employed. The small-scale orientation often means the owner will work right alongside his employees. Visiting an Amish furniture shop in Maine or elsewhere, you have a good chance of being able to meet both the proprietor and the craftsman who creates your furniture piece–often one and the same. This small-scale appeal offers furniture consumers an experience difficult or impossible to replicate among furniture imports or big-box furniture producers.
Pine Tree State Amish woodworkers
When searching for Amish furniture, Maine residents have a few options. One of the most appealing is to visit an Amish furniture shop in person. Many Amish do custom furniture work in addition to maintaining a standard furniture line. Since Amish businesspeople aim to please their customers, they generally have few qualms about creating furniture pieces that would otherwise be out-of-place in an Amish home. This adaptability is born of practicality and in recognition of the needs of a largely non-Amish furniture market.
Visiting Amish furniture workshops is possible in Maine and other states. In Maine, Amish communities can be found near the towns of Unity in central Maine, and Smyrna and Fort Fairfield in the northern half of the state. The Unity settlement, the youngest in the state, is the closest to larger cities in Maine such as Portland and Bangor. In addition to a direct visit to an Amish furniture craftsman, potential buyers can also patronize one of the Maine Amish furniture sellers, with a location each in south-central and northern Maine.
