Amish woodworkers share a well-deserved reputation for creating superior solid wood furniture. The craftsman knows the wood’s grain reveals its character. Even when cut from the same tree, each piece of wood is unique. Perhaps we could say the same about the furniture shops in Amish Country, which attract visitors from across the state who share a distinct appreciation for detail and quality.

Troyer Furniture on West Main Street in Sugarcreek is a unique tailor of traditional Amish-made furniture. “We not only specialize in what a piece of high-quality, Amish-made furniture should be, but also what it can be,” Troyer Furniture sales director Tim Miller said. “We’re able to customize each piece that comes into the shop to meet a customer’s exact specifications.”

The handcrafted, Amish-made furniture arrives unfinished and leaves the details up to the customer. Customers exploring the showroom floor have free rein in selecting the type of wood, which includes locally sourced oaks, white oaks and cherries among others, along with the finish and the edge of the wood, to mention only a few of the possibilities. Any number and combination of customizable options exists.

For over 30 years, Troyer Furniture has worked closely with Amish woodworkers to deliver Amish-made furniture, made-to-order in any size and style.

“Amish-made furniture is built to last. It’s one and done,” Miller said. “We make sure our customers get exactly what they had in mind.”

With so many choices, it’s easy to get lost in the details. The staff at Troyer Furniture can walk customers through the differences between shaker, mission and craftsman.

“We like to think we have a more personal touch,” Miller said.

Generally traditional Amish furniture is made entirely from wood, a simple fact that makes Troyer Furniture unique. Troyer Furniture also boasts a full line of American-made, upholstered furniture.

“People come for the furniture and stay for the food,” Miller said. “There’s a charm and character here in Ohio’s Amish country that you can’t find anywhere else.”
