Amish furniture Haus works directly with over 100 Amish family run businesses and a Wisconsin made sofa manufacturer. We buy our products directly from the shops of the Ohio and Indiana Amish based on quality and value. Our furniture is generally purchased unfinished and trucked to an Amish finish shop in Indiana. This gives us better control over the finish quality and an efficient way to assemble semi loads heading north to our store.
We have a large inventory of in stock items and offer thousands of catalog items beyond our web site to work from.
There is a difference. Most people associate Amish products with exceptional quality. This generally is true but not always. Some products associated with the Amish such as so called energy saving heating devices, Rv's, polishes, food, furniture etc. have little to do with the Amish but are used in their product marketing to give the impression they are setting the standard. They oftentimes make up part of the work force but have little to do with the quality of the product. Also retailers who do source from the Amish can spec out any grade of product they desire.
How do we do it?
Each for our builders is hand selected along with our finisher, trucking service and delivery services. We've learned some things over the years and although we're not perfect we strive to offer exceptional quality and value. Each customer is important to us so we strive to meet each individuals expectations.
You will notice that we don't run sales. This is based in the notion that sales are generally used as a gimmick to create sense of urgency to buy now. These techniques undoubtedly work although we've chosen a different route. Upon comparison Amish Furniture Haus prices will generally run much lower than big box retailers' prices on comparable items. Even their sale prices will usually be higher than our every day prices. So do your research. Plus we specialize in Amish made furniture. Our products are made to order by small and mid sized builders rather than in factory shops done with pre-finish components or bulk runs with limited options. Simply put, we operate a lean business with a thinner profit margin than your typical furniture store which translates into more competitive pricing.
Big options and selection
Sourcing from over 100 shops gives us a vast array of product options, from types of furniture to wood species, stain and paint choices, hardware, custom sizing and detail choices.
See you soon,
Tim and Shelby!
Amish Furniture Haus opened for business on June 15, 2004 in the West End neighborhood of Duluth, Minnesota.
The idea of starting this business was formed over several years of prayer, contemplation and experience.
In 1999, Tim and Shelby went shopping in Madison, Wisconsin for a bedroom set with Tim's parents. Tim grew up in southern Wisconsin and was aware of the Amish and their reputation of quality workmanship and modest cost of production. Upon entering an Amish retailers' store a distinct difference was noticed in the quality and pricing. They flipped over a nightstand noticing the solid wood end grain and that sealed the deal. From then on it would be Amish made furniture for their house. Tim's mom and dad delivered that set to their home in the Duluth area several weeks later.
Five years passed by with a broadening array of work experience preparing Tim and Shelby for the journey into self employment.
The original store was very small but it did give them a solid footing in which to build upon. In 2005, they purchased the property that was to become their current location. Some thought the idea was a little crazy, venturing outside the city limits, but they trusted the vision of what God had laid out along the way. In September 2006, they opened the doors to their current location and immediately experienced a near doubling of their sales. God is faithful! The 12,000 square foot building soon proved to be too small. So in 2008, they expanded the building to nearly 20,000 square feet. Currently they are expanding again adding much needed warehousing to increase efficiency and build their in stock inventory
We at Amish Furniture Haus look forward to working with you soon.
