Presenting: The Bontrager Dining Collection Story
When you think of Amish furniture, you probably don’t think of the term innovation. But with the story of the Bontrager Dining Collection, you may be surprised.
Noah and Margaret Bontrager founded their Elkhart County, Indiana, shop in the year 1994. At the time, most Mission style dining tables were straight and square. Elements of Noah’s unique, curved base on his Royal Mission Trestle Table was soon replicated by other shops and helped establish him as a leader in the community.
Fueled by an innovative spirit, they’ve grown rapidly since we started carrying their products, and they are now one of our largest dining table shops with over 50 employees!
We attribute much of this success to the fact that they offer a great blend of both fresh, contemporary designs and traditional dining furniture designs among their 40 tables.
In fact, coming up with new designs is among Noah’s favorite parts of the job. “We have a lot of fun trying to keep up with what we think is next,” Noah said.
“Back when we started, customer expectations were very different. Today the bar is set very high.”
But this collection more than lives up to the expectations. So, sit back and relax as your Bontrager Dining furniture is built to your specifications by the Bontrager family and their talented Indiana woodworkers.
