Humble beginnings, Strong roots.

The history of the Amish Furniture Gallery began in 1987 in downtown Crystal Lake, Illinois where a bookstore owner with a small inventory and a large location found she was paying for too much showroom space.

Up the block and across the street the owner of a children’s clothing shop happened to be in the process of trying to furnish his family's home. He was frustrated by the lack of quality hardwood furniture available at prices a normal, middle class family could afford. Having grown up in rural Illinois he was familiar with Amish communities and the excellent furniture they produced so he headed down state and started meeting builders through word of mouth. Before long he found what he was looking for and bought an oak table and chair set. Instead of delivering it to his home however, he set it up in a corner rented from the bookstore and began taking orders. That set quickly multiplied, our staff started to grow, and before long we were in a building all of our own.

We gain some style and grow!

When we began, Amish furniture was country in style and golden oak in color. That look only goes so far even in the Midwest of the late 80s, something had to change. So we put pen to paper, became designers and introduced some Amish builders to "Mission Style", it blew their minds! We were the first Amish Furniture store to offer quartersawn white oak because we went directly to the mill, explained what it was, why it was important, and worked out a deal supplying our builders. We built our own finishing shop as we were unhappy with the finish quality and consistency Amish builders (doing their best without electricity) were providing. From that point we have constantly refined, improved, and expanded, leading to where we are today.
