Express Furniture Adds Amish-Made to its Website and Store Offerings


Competitive pricing, authentic craftsmanship are hallmarks of furniture built in the heart of Amish Country, Ohio.

AKRON, OH, April 04, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ — “Amish-made” stands for quality craftsmanship you can trust. That’s why long-time Sauder furniture dealer Express Furniture, of Akron, has expanded its offering to add handcrafted, Amish furniture to its portfolio of home entertainment and office furniture.

The furniture retailer has added two lines of YT Woodcraft entertainment furniture to its website – the Express Series and Economy Series – but also offers the complete YT Woodcraft catalog of products through its store.

The solid oak and brown maple furniture offered on the Express Furniture website is manufactured right in the heart of Amish Country, Ohio, providing the furniture store’s customers with authentic Amish handiwork at the competitive prices they’ve come to expect from Express Furniture.

“We felt that bringing Amish furniture to our store would provide greater accessibility for all our customers in Northeast Ohio and give our valued customers more choices,” said owner Michael Simcox.

The new lines of Amish furniture are available in multiple sizes, stain and paint colors to match any decor needs. From TV stands and entertainment centers to bookcases and accent tables, Express Furniture offers pieces that not only are beautiful, but also durable and timeless enough to last for generations to come.

For consumers seeking to expand their collection of Amish-made furniture, the lines offered through Express Furniture come in Ohio Certified Stains, a color standard developed by furniture builders in Ohio’s Amish Country that guarantees that pieces from one furniture builder stained in a specific color will match the same stain from other Amish builders.

“Even though color selection can be difficult on computer monitors where colors can be represented differently, customers can be assured that if they already have an OCS colored piece of Amish furniture that we can match that piece to add to their collection,” Simcox said. He recommended that customers not familiar with OCS colors contact or visit the store to view samples.
