It’s hard not to feel the strength as you sit at your writing desk, slide out the chair at your dining table, or pick a book from the bookshelf.
It’s hard not to marvel at the natural woodgrain, hand stained by American craftspeople.
It’s hard not to notice the perfection of the craftsmanship and the durable joints.
Fine lumber is worked by hand with time-honored techniques and crafted into carefully designed furniture by Amish artisans. It’s custom stained and finished to your specifications in small shops on the backroads of Indiana, Ohio, or Pennsylvania, before it’s delivered to your front door.
For 20 years, DutchCrafters has been delivering furniture from the heartland to your homes, where your families have gathered and grown with it. Where you’ve been blessed by its beauty, quality, and strength.
So, as we celebrate 20 years, we thank you for trusting us and believing in the outstanding quality and custom craftsmanship that can only come from the Amish wood shop.
DutchCrafters 20 Year Timeline
- 2003: DutchCrafters is founded and the founders begin work from Jim and Linse’s living room in Sarasota, Fla. It’s right there in the owners’ home that they set up dutchcrafters.com and begin to field phone calls from buyers.
- 2004-2007: Jim and Linse continue to travel the backroads of Pennsylvania, Ohio, and Indiana, in search of the best Amish products that they could sell online.
- 2008: Amid the recession hitting the economy, many “brick-and-mortar” Amish furniture stores go out of business. Fortunately, DutchCrafters continues to sell online and provide woodworkers steady work through uncertain times.
- 2009-2015: The business grows rapidly, hiring a couple dozen new employees and filling up the company’s office space.
- 2016: It’s time to move into a new office and open up the first DutchCrafters Amish Furniture Showroom in Sarasota!
- 2017-2021: DutchCrafters continues to grow quickly, even through the COVID pandemic, to grow beyond 50 employees and add a warehouse and outlet store, delivery trucks, and drivers in LaGrange, Indiana.
- 2022: We open a huge, new showroom near Atlanta in Alpharetta, GA: DutchCrafters Alpharetta Showroom.
- 2023: A year of celebration, as we commemorate 20 years in business and 20 years of delivering furniture to customers across the country!
None of this would be possible without our outstanding customers who have been with us since the early years when we sold furniture out of a living room.
Our customers have trusted us, had faith in the craftsmanship of our Amish woodworkers, and supported us through thick and thin.
Thank you for visiting and watching this video and providing your support as we celebrate 20 years of DutchCrafters. Cheers!
