Oak Offerings by Countryside Amish FurnitureBy Holly Rennels · February 11, 2015
Your Premier Amish Oak Furniture Resource
Once upon a time, Amish furniture was almost exclusively associated with Oak dining tables. Certainly, we still offer solid oak dining tables, but we have expanded our offerings to include other wood species as well as other items made of this hardwood. A sampling of our finest Oak products follows. Available in every item offered by Countryside, you will find that the base price of our furniture is calculated in red Oak. This American grown, responsibly harvested wood has an excellent record of longevity, is beautiful, and is also plentiful in the United States. It only makes sense that Oak would be our baseline for our fine Amish furniture.We offer both traditional red oak and quartersawn white oak. Quartersawn white oak is more expensive due to method by which it is cut for furniture making. Both are excellent choices for rustic, casual, or country style furniture.
Enormously popular, oak dining tables are frequently used in Country themed kitchens and dining rooms. Mission motifs call for sturdy, stable, strong tables in the beautiful Quartersawn White Oak.
Specifically for the kitchen, Oak is an excellent choice. This beautiful wood will darken slightly with age, but our catalyzed conversion varnish will not yellow like veneers and lacquers. The furniture you eat dinner on tonight will look the same when you pass it on to your grandchildren.
An excellent "grow with me wood", our baby furniture is gorgeous in both varieties of Oak that we offer. Since our nursery furniture is all convertible, you will want to select a wood and finish that your child will enjoy for several years.
Every chair we offer is stunning in Oak. Light or dark, rustic or formal, our chairs will look great for generations.
Mission style bedrooms are incredible in Quartersawn White Oak and offer a rustic retreat feeling. Country and Traditional boudoirs will prefer natural red oak.
For your home office or your place of business, oak office furniture is a great solution. Less costly than other premium hardwoods, it offers an informal, inviting look that is perfect for the boss.
Oak for Restaurants
Somewhat more cost effective, when you are ordering multiple chairs, tables, or china cabinets Oak is a great wood. Not only does the grain pattern help with "matching", but it also provides great character in the furnishings so that accents and details can be less ornate, letting your fine furniture make a big statement. Oak also takes stain nicely and it looks great au naturel or very dark. Oak in a public setting is an excellent choice for a number of reasons.
No matter what room you are furnishing, Oak is a terrific choice. It is as long lasting as any hardwood and our Amish artisans incorporate the same ingenuity into our handmade furniture no matter which hardwood is in use.
