Outfit traditional home with Amish Queen Anne furniture

by Tom Grimes

The town of Atchison, Kansas is speckled with stately Victorian mansions that were originally built just on the cusp of the twentieth century and one of them, a three-story brick Queen Anne, is the home of traditional decorations and an art gallery, according to The Lawrence Journal-World.

The home, which was originally built in 1885 by a lumber merchant, boasts gleaming surfaces of oak, mahogany and walnut, and these floors are now full of early twentieth-century furniture purchased by the Muchnic family, who bought the home in 1922, the news source reports.

Some of the most notable features of the home are a dining room with a huge mahogany table that boasts an inlaid border pattern and stained glass windows on the second floor's landing. On the second floor, there are rotating art exhibits.

Amish furniture from the Queen Anne collection can be ideal for any traditional home design that elicits the feeling of a formal environment. If one is looking to capture the sophisticated luncheons of a century gone by, distinctive Queen Anne buffets and servers can set the tone beautifully.

Curio cabinets and hutches can also serve as elegant, long-lasting storage solutions for any home.
