Vancouver is a great city located in British Columbia, Western Canada. The city is the 3rd biggest of the country; therefore, it’s pretty large and really colorful, lived by people coming from different continents and cultural backgrounds. Therefore, the artistic and cultural life of the city is really diverse and we can say just the same for the home and gardening culture of the city. In this article, we would like to give you a few hints on where and how to buy original Amish Furniture.
Before we get started with our list, let’s say a few words about Amish furniture, which is one of the most popular type of classic country style furniture in the United States and has gained plenty of momentum in the Canadian furniture business too. Amish furniture-making has been the longtime way of making money for several Amish families, living in Ohio and Pennsylvania. There are lots of Amish families which still live from making furniture in their traditional way, which means the exclusion of electricity and furniture making technologies, such as laminating. Amish furniture has several distinctive styles, which include the Mission style; that is by far the most popular also in Canada and the Shaker style another common method of making Amish furniture. What these two styles share is to make very practical furniture with often puritan design. Other lesser-known Amish schools have more artistic furniture, which include more styling and ornamentation. These include Rustic, Cottage or Beachfront designs. Let’s see where in Vancouver can we find great quality Amish furniture:
