The Kashima Bedroom Collection brings a distinctive Asian look and feel to the world of solid hardwood custom furniture.

The Kashima Bedroom Collection brings a distinctive Asian look and feel to the world of solid hardwood custom furniture. Yet, the collection is built by Amish cabinetmakers just like other pieces of fine furniture offered by Brandenberry Amish Furniture of Shipshewana, Indiana.

Why Kashima? The name is taken from several popular sites and cultural or historic objects in Japan. For example, Kashima is part of the name of towns and edifices, railway stations and even a famous WW2 battleship in Japan.

The creators reflected the Asian influence throughout the design and finish of the Kashima Bedroom Collection. For example, the collection features a clean design, simple lines and a modular look. Also, the headboard features a novel cut-out pattern. Except for the bed, each piece of furniture rests on an innovative, sled-like base.

But perhaps the most eye-catching – and novel – feature of the Kashima Collection is its driftwood stain complemented by gray tops.

The Kashima Collection includes a bed, dresser, chest and nightstand. A 1-inch solid hardwood case and top lie beneath the two-tone exterior. In addition, the dresser, chest of drawers and nightstand come with a ½-inch hardwood back and bronze hardware. Furniture lovers can order individual items or the entire Kashima Bedroom Collection in a choice of several hardwoods. They include oak, cherry, maple and hickory.

The collection’s Amish builders include a number of top-quality features that are typical of other products offered by Brandenberry Amish Furniture. For example, all drawers open full extension. So furniture owners can enjoy easy access to everything inside. Also, dovetail joints in the drawers enhance strength and durability.

In addition, Brandenberry offers the bed in king, queen and full sizes. And heavy-duty hardware helps facilitate easy assembly. Serving as a handy companion piece to the bed is the Kashima Nightstand. Its three drawers offer impressive storage.

The Kashima dresser has a large mirror and six deep drawers. So it has room for lots of clothing and other personal items. Also, the Kashima Chest has great storage in its five deep drawers. The Kashima Bedroom Collection gives furniture lovers the freedom to enjoy the beauty and aura of Asian furniture coupled with the strength and durability of Amish-built, solid hardwood furniture.
