Best of 2018

And another year has flown past! 2018 has been a very exciting year here at The Amish Home. The big story of the year is our new showroom. In July, we relocated to a bigger space in the Pittsburgh Mills mall. Now we have nearly double the space, which has allowed us to bring in 5 new dinettes, 3 new bedrooms, plus new office suites, more children’s furniture, and so much more!

We’re so thankful to our customers for trusting us to furnish your Pittsburgh homes with beautiful Amish-crafted hardwood furniture, made in the USA. Below is the Best of 2018 – what were your favorites this year?

Wood & Stain

First Place: TIE – Rustic Cherry with Asbury Stain, and Cherry with Michael’s Stain

Cherry is a smooth, even-grained hardwood, often considered the finest of the fruitwoods. Known for its warm, rich color, cherry wood will mellow and darken with age. Rustic cherry will include pieces with knots, pits, and other natural markings. All cherry wood may have some mineral streaks, pitch pockets, or sapwood.

The Barn Floor Living Room Table Collection, shown in Rustic Cherry with Asbury Stain

Asbury is a relatively new stain, having been introduced in 2013. While most traditional cherry stains are predominantly red-toned, Asbury is a darn brown. It is a translucent stain, meaning that you’ll still see the wood grain pattern through the color. Asbury on Rustic Cherry works well with many popular décor styles, like a refined farmhouse or rustic lodge. Asbury is very popular on just about all of our hardwood species, including red oak, brown maple, and quartersawn white oak.

On the other hand, Michaels stain is one of our oldest stains, and perhaps our most popular of all time. It is a warm, rich red stain, used on all of our hardwood species. Like Asbury, it is a translucent stain, which allows more of the wood grain’s pattern to show through.

Second Place: Two-tone finishes

Two-toning gives you double the opportunity to express your personality in your furniture selections. The two stain colors can be on the same wood species, or on different woods for a variety in texture as well as color. Just about any dining table can be done in a two-tone finish, and most of our chairs can have a contrasting color added to the seat.

The Belmont Dining Room Furniture Collection is shown with two-tone finish in brown maple with onyx black stain and elm with michaels red stain. Table has boat shaped top in elm with flared shaker legs and apron in brown maple with onyx stain, chairs are brown maple with elm seats and top rail, server has two doors with curved glass and two drawers with elm fronts, elm top and a brown maple backsplash gallery, dining cabinet has one door with arched glass panel and four drawers with elm fronts, and three open shelves with elm top.

There are some specialty collections that allow extra options for two-toning. Our Belmont Dining Room is an example. Notice how the dining chairs feature elm on the top rail, as well as on the seat, and the cabinets feature elm tops and doors. Our store associates can help you find products that can be two-toned in unique ways.
