Jeff and Fritz: A DutchCrafters Living Room Customer Story

We’re delighted to share the journey of Jeff Crane and his loyal dog Fritz, as Jeff transformed their living space with the beauty and elegance of Amish furniture. In this exclusive story, we explore how the fusion of personal taste, expert craftsmanship, and quality materials culminate in creating not just furniture, but a legacy. Here’s more on how Jeff’s vision came to life with the help of DutchCrafters.

Jeff’s Shopping Journey

On a sunny, fall afternoon, Jeff Crane can often be found enjoying the comfort of his favorite recliner, while his longtime companion Fritz runs circles around their new set of Amish living room furniture. But just last year, this set was little more than an idea.

So how did this idea turn into a sofa, recliner, coffee table, and end table adorning his living room? This furniture is born of Jeff’s creativity and self-expression, the craftsmanship and skill of three woodworkers in two states, and the guidance of a furniture specialist at DutchCrafters.

The Journey from Idea to Reality

It all started when Jeff needed a new recliner and matching sofa. Driven by a desire for durable, long-lasting furniture, Jeff naturally gravitated towards Amish craftsmanship. Yet, the local Amish furniture shops he visited didn’t offer quite what he envisioned. His search led him online to DutchCrafters.

At DutchCrafters, Jeff found a large selection of Amish furniture from a wide variety of Amish woodworkers, and he was drawn to pieces made by three different shops.

Selecting Custom Options

Despite their separate birthplaces, these four pieces were built to match in beautiful Natural Oak wood. Jeff’s lifelong enjoyment of hunting and fishing are reflected in the “Wild Life” fabric he added to his sofa. Meanwhile, his recliner is clad in a clean “Whiskey” colored faux leather.

Across Ohio and Indiana, skilled woodworkers set to work, each crafting a piece of Jeff’s dream living room set.

Reflecting on His Purchase

Now that he and Fritz have had a few months to enjoy their new furniture, Jeff is happy to recommend DutchCrafters to any shoppers seeking heirloom-quality furniture.

Looking to the future, Jeff told us,

I’ll be looking to pass on my furniture, and I’d just as soon make sure it’s something of quality.
