While some pieces of Amish made furniture seem out of place in certain rooms - a bed in the kitchen, a dining table in the bedroom - there is one item that is functional and great looking in any room - a pie safe.
The pie safe, a wooden cabinet with tiny holes in the panels, was first introduced by Pennsylvania Germans in the 19th century. The piece was used to store pies and breads, long before refrigerators were invented. Today, few people need a designated area to cool their baked goods, but pie safes have a plethora of other uses.
Some homeowners struggle to find an attractive way to store movies and books. A pie safe may be the solution. The shelves can hold the various items and, when company stops by, the doors hide the jumbled collection and instead present an elegant, wooden exterior.
Pie safes are also great in dining rooms that boast little storage on their own. Instead of having to run to the kitchen to find an extra wine glass or dish, homeowners can store dinnerware in the attractive pie board.
Amish made furniture offers buyers many benefits - the high quality pieces are extremely well-made, and will last for years. An Amish made pie safe may be a perfect fit in any room.
