Give the gift of comfort with an Amish bed

by Tom Grimes

Sometimes the most meaningful gifts are also the most practical. If a loved one has been complaining about back pain or sleeping troubles, it may be time to consider getting a new bed for a home.

A bed is not only the focal point of the bedroom, it can be responsible for the quality of every day life. A poorly-made bed can prove to be uncomfortable, which in turn can contribute to a loss of sleep that can add to stress or depression.

Aesthetically, a bed should be the central part of any bedroom without overwhelming the other furniture. That's why a subtle, elegant piece is the safest bet for any space.

Amish bedroom furniture is crafted by Amish woodworkers who follow techniques passed down from generation to generation. Some beds, such as the Amish mission bed, can complement a tidy and organized room. The clean, vertical lines of the headboard are contrasted by broad, sweeping horizontal ones, creating a pleasing and graceful pattern.

For those who prefer a touch of drama, Amish canopy beds follow a design that was often used by European royalty, offering shining posts that can support any number of colorful canopies.
