Handmade Amish Furniture. In fact, most Amish furniture is handcrafted by Amish people living in individual communities whose work is marketed by local or national furniture stores or distributors. Take Simply Amish, for example. This firm is located in Arcola Illinois, and most of the furniture they offer is handmade by craftsmen and women within 20 miles of their distribution center. They use wood from sustainable forests located no further than 500 miles away. This an example of local men and women handcrafting beautiful solid wood furniture, and able to sell it through a central retail outlet such as Simply Amish, which in turn markets the furniture through local furniture distributors and retailers. Thats what Made in America is supposed to mean!
Black Lacquered Furniture. Black lacquered furniture designs have a classic, yet contemporary look, which suits all types of homes from traditional to more modern. Oriental black lacquered furniture is created by painstakingly sealing the wood in several thin layers of high gloss varnish resulting in a robust and gleaming finish, which can withstand the rigours of everyday household use. With black lacquered furniture, the chosen wood such as pine or solid ash is lacquered seven times to produce the unmistakable black lacquered furniture of the Orient. Many designs today feature antiquated yet contemporary brass handles and wooden edging detail so you can choose just how contemporary or traditional you want your black lacquered furniture to be. From coffee tables, to console and dressing tables, dining tables, TV display units and sideboards, black lacquered furniture is available in all sizes and styles to suit every room in the home.
Origins of Black Lacquer Furniture. Oriental black lacquered furniture was commonly found in the temples and palaces and homes of the wealthy upper classes. Four basic styles of lacquered furniture design were used throughout the Ming and Qing Dynasties which lasted from 1368 - 1911. These styles included carving the lacquer, using black lacquer to fill in a design engraved into the wood and rubbing it flat, outlining the black lacquer and inlaying mother-of-pearl into the lacquer. White lacquered furniture can be made from a variety of woods, such as reclaimed pine, which is hand finished with a gleaming white lacquer finish. White lacquered furniture has a fresh, clean, contemporary look, and includes beds, side tables, coffee tables, trunks, console tables, mirrors and large sideboards all elegantly hand brushed in a linen finish. This style of furniture has increased in popularity in recent times and can come with attractive and elegant features such as antiquated yet contemporary brass flip up handles and sanded edges which subtly reveal the warm waxed wood underneath.
However, most of todays furnishings are still not designed to be moved around regularly. As anyone who has tried to relocate with traditional furniture can attest to, nearly every move results in some serious damage to ones most valued furnishings, and it is often very expensive to repair any type of significant damage to traditional furniture unless the owner is an experienced craftsman. This is one of the reasons why less families are purchasing furniture these days with the intent to pass the pieces down to their children some day, as most furniture simply is not designed to put up with the frequency with which people move about in the modern era.
