The newly released Mission Pier Bed Suite boasts an innovative design that maximizes space and will offer faithful use for the long-term. This striking five-piece set includes a solid wood bed with a low footboard, a furniture suite with two large paneled doors, three full-extension dovetailed drawers, two slide-out writing surfaces, a large beveled mirror, a bridge with built-in touch lights and two side cabinets in headboard with open storage space.
The birth of solid wood Amish furniture craftsmanship in America can be traced to the early 1800’s. The Shakers, a religious group closely related to the Amish, had fled persecution in Europe to settle in peaceful, hardworking communities along the United States’ Eastern seaboard. There, the Shakers built sturdy, simple, practical chairs for their crowded religious gatherings. The Shaker style furniture soon became popular throughout town and the “Shaker style” caught on like wildfire. The demand for Shaker and Amish style furniture was born.
Store owner LeRoy Weaver notes, "Today, Weaver’s Amish craftsmen use many of the same woodworking techniques as the old Shakers." This beautiful bed suite is shown in the classic Mission furniture style but is also available in a traditional Country style. In fact, every detail of this bed suite can be customized. Weaver’s hands-on construction allows customers to choose the stain or finish, wood type, hardware and size that appeals to them.
