Growing Amish Furniture Collection

We recently returned from a furniture show that our favorite crib builder attends.  The show seems to grow larger & larger every year; even so, our crib builder stands out from the crowd with his unique designs & exceptional workmanship.  This year, he added a French Country 3 Drawer 1 Door Dresser/Baby Changer to compliment one of our best-selling baby cribs, the French Country Slats Crib.

Designed to complement any of our Indiana Amish Dressers/Baby Changers, a Baby Changing Tray converts a dresser into a baby changer during the time baby is in diapers.  Later, removing the Baby Changing Tray makes it a dresser fit for any bedroom in the house.  We offer a substantial savings on French Country dressers purchased with the matching French Country Slats Crib or the French Country Panel Crib.

As with all of our heirloom Amish baby furniture, the Baby Changing Tray has dovetailed corners, they are not simply nailed together as in lower quality furniture.  The bottom of the baby changing tray has felt protection pads that prevent the dresser from becoming scratched.  Each Changing Tray comes equipped with brackets that fasten to the back of the dresser/baby changer to securely hold it in place.

The newest addition to our collection of Indiana Amish baby cribs, the Trinity Convertible Crib, has more detailed design features than commonly found in Amish crib furniture.  The back side of the crib (which later becomes the headboard of the full bed) has four, symmetrical raised panels just below a rope twist that runs the length of the back.  The rope twist is repeated on the front rails (which later become the footboard of the full bed).  The legs have a routered edge that runs two thirds of the leg length with two horizontal grooves at the foot of the posts.

Trinity case goods have an arched lower case with flat panels on the sides.  The drawers are made of dovetailed boxes with Euro-glide drawer slides; the drawer fronts have an extra routered design around the outside edge.  The tops have a roundover edge and the legs feature a routered edge with two horizontal grooves, as does the crib.  The backs & drawer bottoms of all our Indiana Amish baby case goods is made of Formaldehyde Free PureBond plywood that is CARB1 & CARB2 compliant.  Using CARB compliant plywood is one of the many ways our crib builder goes above & beyond the federal regulations that crib manufacturers must adhere to.  All case goods can be built with solid wood backs & drawer bottoms upon request.

Lastly, the newest item in our Indiana Amish collection is the McCoy Day Bed.  The McCoy crib is our top selling crib & after numerous requests for a day bed that incorporates the attractive features of the McCoy design, our crib builder obliged.  The McCoy collection has beveled edge tops with angled leg that gets wider and farther apart at the base.  All pieces feature mortise and tenon construction with an exposed joinery echo.

Free Crib Mattress or $100 off Indiana Amish Baby Cribs

April 3, 2011

Filed under: Uncategorized — Baby Eco Trends @ 12:01 pm sells more baby cribs in April than any other month.  So we thought this would be a great time to offer our customers their choice of a free Naturepdic Baby Crib Mattress or $100 off the purchase price of any Indiana Amish 4 in 1 Convertible Baby Crib, our best selling cribs.

If you choose the free mattress, you can get either the Naturepedic Lightweight Organic Cotton Classic Crib Mattress or the Naturepedic Organic Cotton Classic 150 Traditional Crib Mattress.  Both mattresses are made of 100% certified organic cotton & offer the firm support baby crib mattresses require.  However, the Lightweight Crib Mattress weighs about half as much as the Classic 150 Crib Mattress, which makes changing the sheets a real breeze.

Whether you opt for the $100 discount or a free crib mattress, either offer makes this a good time to invest in an Indiana Amish Convertible Baby Crib.  At checkout, use the following Promotional Codes:
