Wise customers looking for Amish furniture in Michigan have long known – often through knowledge passed from one generation of family members to the next – that the Great Lakes State is an ideal location for finding these highly-valued (and surprisingly affordable) pieces that include living room sets, dining room tables and chairs, entertainment centers that accentuate televisions of all sizes, bedroom sets and individual pieces, distinct coffee tables and breathtaking end tables, home offices, utterly unique items from the hands of master artisans and much more.
Michigan is home to one of the top 10 largest Amish populations in the U.S., with the first Amish settlement in the state arriving late in the 19th century. Tracing their roots to Switzerland, the Amish population in the United States today is estimated to number above 200,000. Christians, the Amish dress plainly while living lifestyles mostly avoiding the use of technology like electricity provided through electrical lines, telephones and automobiles.
In many cases, parents pass along many of the skills the Amish use in their daily lives from one generation to the next. For example, a father that learned the art of woodworking and mastered the skills throughout countless years of hands-on work will then pass those same skills to his sons.
