Furniture (What Else?)

I have been told that we do not post enough. The problem is, I only post when something interesting is happening (preferably with pictures to match), and nothing much has been going on lately. However, I did realize that I never posted about our first Amish furniture purchase!

We have been looking for a large bookcase to hold our enormous volume of books. I found one I loved at Pottery Barn, but Jesse really wanted to buy American. Apparently there is only one company that makes all of their furniture here, and that company is both expensive and ornate. The only other way to find USA furniture is to go Amish. While Amish furniture certainly isn't cheap, it is very high quality and customizable. I was sold when I saw this bookcase, which is practically identical to the PB one I wanted, except that it is custom made so we could choose a wood color that matched the rest of our living room!

Isn't it beautiful? And it holds all our books!


  1. Lovely! That's why I bought my bedroom set at an Amish furniture store! Their workmanship is unsurpassed.

  2. Good choice. Very nice.
