   At DutchCrafters we carry chests in every shape and size - from brilliant cherry hardwood chest on chest dressers, to elegant heirloom quality maple hope chests; DutchCrafters has it all! But perhaps our most magnificent chests of all are our authentic, Amish-handcrafted in America, Chifforobes!

   The sheer size of a traditional American chifforobe is breathtaking. Offering even more storage space than many closets, our hardwood American-made chifforobes unify the long space for hanging clothes typically found in an armoire, with the durable dovetailed drawers of a Amish chest on chest dresser - resulting in the most effective piece of bedroom storage furniture ever made. The name itself, chifforobe, actually identifies a similar unification, though less understood today, of a chiffonier and a wardrobe.

   Every chifforobe that you’ll find on DutchCrafters is designed with functional practicality in mind. Solid hardwood coupled with authentic Amish-handcraftsmanship ensures generations of service, while dovetailed drawers, and full-extension soft-close drawer slides (commonly standard, but not always) adds convenience and accessibility to your items.

   Most practically owned by those with limited closet space, even those with full walk-in closets have purchased chifforobes for their pure magnificence and beauty in the bedroom! Designed for clothes, both folded and hanging, the versatile design of a chifforobe allows it to accomplish multiple functions in almost any room of the house. We’ve commonly found that the chifforobe is the perfect bedroom entertainment center!

   The chifforobe first appeared in the homes of nobility during the middle ages in England and France, but today this breathtaking piece of furniture is most commonly found in the southern United States. At DutchCrafters, we’ve taken the traditional designs of times passed, incorporated the tastes and preferences of the southern United States, and offer only the most authentic, structurally strong, and visually beautiful chifforobes available.

   As each chifforobe on DutchCrafters is built to order by the Amish, our chifforobes are typically customizable with your choice of hardwood, stain, and hardware – creating more potential combinations than you’ll find almost anywhere else. Even further customization is commonly available, but not always. Quite often we work with customers to add custom wire-holes or additional drawers, to shave an inch or two off the design to fit a custom space, or to incorporate just the right amount of shelves in each cupboard to fit your needs and lifestyle!

  At DutchCrafters, we typically offer 3-5 hardwood options, including Cherry, Oak, Quarter Sawn White Oak, Hard Maple, and Brown Maple – however, availability may differ depending on the chifforobe design, and specialties of each Amish woodshop.

   But wait, it get's even better! While these mammoth Amish chests can commonly cost well over $400 to ship to your home, nearly all of our hardwood, heirloom quality chifforobes are part of our $199 Flat Rate Shipping program! Choose nearly any chifforobe, and any location in the continental United States and we'll get it there for $199 or less!
