WHY AMISH FURNITURE?
Gish's Furniture provides a vast selection of handcrafted, solid hardwood furniture, custom-made in the USA by the finest Amish craftsmen, so that each purchase you make will be an investment that lasts for generations. Our vision is to make our stores the best place to purchase home furnishings in our communities, while providing exceptional customer service and outstanding value.
We carry a wide range of Amish furniture, from kitchen tables and hutches, to bedroom furniture and baby cribs, all custom-made to match your home's décor. Our Amish furniture is typically made of cherry, oak, and maple. However, if you prefer more exotic woods like elm or walnut, our craftsmen can make your furniture with those as well.
At Gish's, our furniture is finished with a catalyzed conversion varnish. This creates a hard, resilient finish that still displays the beauty and charm of the wood. There's no need to worry about water rings because the durability and strength are much greater than pre-catalyzed lacquer or polyurethane.
Invest in heirloom quality furniture for your home, it will serve as the foundation of family memories for generations to come.
ABOUT OUR FOUNDER
Michael Gish, son of A. Samuel and Grace Gish, is the founder of Gish's Furniture. Michael is married to Teresa Gish, and they have two sons, Matthew and Ezekiel. Michael and Teresa opened their first store, aptly named Gish's Furniture, in 2003.
Before opening his own stores, Michael worked in Ohio for Miller's Furniture, and was the founder of Miller-Gish finishing. This unique background is where he learned about Amish furniture: how it's made, the meticulous nature of a quality finish, craftsmanship, and heirloom quality.
Miller-Gish finishing was a company that specialized in finishing furniture with a catalyzed conversion varnish. Working with fine furniture and expert craftsmen allowed Gish to quickly develop a multifaceted knowledge base. He also realized how rare long-lasting furniture is. He knew Pennsylvania would benefit from having an exclusively Amish furniture retailer, and so Gish's Furniture was born.
What started as one store soon became four, with locations in Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Maryland. As the company expanded, Gish was sure to stay true to the business's roots—to this day it is still a family run business, with Michael's wife, mother, father and brother all facilitating its growth.
ABOUT OUR AMISH FURNITURE MAKERS
Gish's Furniture sells products made by Amish in Indiana and Ohio. Notably, Holmes County, Ohio is home to the largest Amish community in the world, with a population of 36,000. This large population results in a strong cluster of Amish furniture makers, enabling a high degree of specialization for our customers, both in design options and wood choice.
It is our belief that the Amish furniture makers in these communities offer the very best furniture quality with the widest assortment of products.
Gish's "White Glove Treatment" isn't just about dusting off your pristine new furniture once it arrives at your door. It's about everything that happens up to that moment. Our sophisticated logistics system allows us to carefully maintain our high standards of care as each piece is moved on our fleet from the craftmen's shop floor to your front door - all in the hands of Gish's Furniture employees.
