Thinking about buying that elusive set of furniture for your dream house? The choices are unlimited - a quick look around will show the dazzling variety on display. From leather upholstery, to cane, to wrought iron, to plywood with Sun mica finish, to wood laminates, to plastic and last but not the least, to pure wood - the diversity of items for sale is enough to send anyone's head spinning.

But ask a furniture lover what he would prefer in terms of his dream furniture, and chances are more often than not you'll get the answer - 'Nothing to beat pure wooden furniture'. Delve a little deeper, and it is the solid, dark woods which have held sway over the tastes and preferences of people over the centuries. The Pines of this world fall shallow in front of the Oaks, the Teaks and the Rosewoods.

Then there is yet one more choice to be made - modern or traditional. Much of this depends upon personal tastes. While some prefer sleek lines and curves like the one in which the Italian furniture specialize, others prefer more solid shapes and traditional lineages like the Victorian and the Amish furniture.

By now you'd have probably got the hang of what I'm getting at - and it is this - I'm a die hard Amish furniture fan and proud of it. And I belong to a happy and very satisfied group of owners of this exquisite item which adorns my living room.

What, then, makes owning a piece of Amish Oak furniture so special? Ask a Harley Davidson owner why he refuses to part with his bike and you have the answer.

It is all about passion.

The sense of mystique that accompanies an Amish Oak furniture piece adds to the charm of owning it. The lure of an Amish handcrafted furniture piece is enough to keep you enthralled every time you as much as glance at it, attracting you with the simplicity of its design, the depth of its colour and the contours of its wood. Its simple yet elegant design reminds you all the while of the aura of its creators - the reclusive Amish people. They may reject the world's trappings of comfort, but the world is enthralled by the curiosity of their managing to exist as an oasis of tranquillity amidst a sea of chaos. Just like its creators, your Amish Oak promises to sit there for years on end, untouched by the pandemonium that prevails in your house(I'm sure it does - I've yet to find a sequence of days go by quietly in mine!). Made for functionality, it will never refuse any of the unlimited stuff you may throw at it to store, while at the same time adding a touch of class to your living room. It's a bit of history sitting right there, which never fails to instil a sense of pride at your owning it.

So go ahead and join the exclusive club of Amish handcrafted furniture owners. You will not find it going for a song, mind you, but then, who ever found exclusivity in a cheap sedan? It's the Rolls Royce which makes heads turn!
