Sustainable Amish Furniture

amish furniture

The Mountain Magnolia Collection is a collection of fine furniture handcrafted from sustainable forests and inspired by the Mountain Magnolia Inn. The collection is designed by Gary Lowe, president of Gary Lowe Designs, Ltd. and Genesis Designs, LLC. He is a well-known furniture designer who has done work for some of the top furniture makers in the world. Each piece in the collection is lovingly made by Philip Yoder, an Amish furniture maker, of Belfield Furniture Company and other Amish craftsmen in Holmes County, Ohio.

The collection is unique not only in its design and its eco-friendly creation, but in the exceptional value it represents. Its craftsmanship and design are at par with the finest furniture available anywhere. The Amish team use only locally grown hardwoods from forests which are sustainable. In Ohio, where forest acreage has doubled in the past 60 years, there is a move to certify all private and public forests as “sustainable,” according to the Plain Dealer. It’s a way for the State’s forestry owners to make more money on the wood products they sell, and more importantly ensure that there are still trees to harvest and process in the years to come.
