Amish furniture can unify a room's style

by Tom Grimes

When homeowners Debbie and Tim Farrand wanted to decorate their home in Harford County, Maryland, they sought for a way to combine a country theme with their vast collection of antiques. To display their memorabilia, the couple selected rustic wooden furniture.

"Most of the furnishings come from family heirlooms and collecting," Debbie, who co-owns an antiques shop, told The Baltimore Sun. The charm of the oak furniture blends well with the couple's Victorian-era collectibles, and creates a world of nostalgia and country charm.

Homeowners looking for a rustic way to display collectibles in any room should consider investing in Amish furniture. Not only will these pieces seamlessly mix with any pre-existing decor, but they can easily become family heirlooms, like the Farrand's furniture.

When selecting Amish furniture, homeowners should consider the species of wood used to make the pieces, as the type of wood can impact the item's overall look. Those searching for a similar style to the Farrand's pieces may prefer natural oak and pine, while stained cherry and maple could fit into a modern decor.ADNFCR-3308-ID-19839452-ADNFCR
