Amish ‘Classic’ & ‘Heritage’ Hardwood Chairs by American Heirloom Furniture
Furnishing styles and tastes have continuously evolved, and seats of various kinds have seen considerable development leading to our large collection of hardwood dining chairs, infants high chairs, stools, rocking chairs, desk chairs, and benches, that we offer in our online Heirloom Quality furniture catalog today.
In early Colonial homes, and also in the later homes of pioneering times, stools were in fact more common than were chairs. The term “Father’s Chair” may hearken back to the time when ‘Father’s chair’ was the only chair in the house! Find out more about the many different styles of chairs, benches, and stools available to us from our rich heritage of North American furniture craftsmen.
We understand that Your investment in a true ‘Heirloom Quality’ stool, bench, or dining chair, should provide both comfortable seating for Your family and friends, and also supreme and lasting value.

The traditional ‘Square Frame’ Chair form can be seen in our collection of fine Mission Style Chairs, and Shaker Style Chairs. Square Frame chairs are constructed with 2 long posts at the back, which form the back legs and the back rest, and 2 short posts at the front which form the front legs. The seat is then joined onto these legs, which are then braced below the seat. Many square frame chair models are available in 2 model variants that have either wooden seats or upholstered seats.
Windsor Style Seating, with splayed legs and tilted back rests driven into the seat, represents a high point in the landscape of chair design & construction. The original English Windsor Chair developed in the 17th Century near Windsor, England, and has traveled extensively throughout the centuries, first coming to America in about 1726. After this time, the English Windsor Chairs differed from their North American counterparts in various details, as several stylistic and structural adaptations evolved on each side of the Atlantic. This is why you’ll find so many different types of Windsor Chair, as well as matching Windsor Benches and matching Windsor Stools for many of these chairs, in our catalog.
In General, You’ll Find That Square Frame Chairs Are Stylish, But Windsor Chairs Are More Comfortable!
We work hard to ensure that every one of today’s Heirloom Quality chairs is better in many ways than the original furniture of old that it is based upon. We apply the best proven designs and legacy joinery techniques that have evolved through generations of craftsmen, and we also take advantage of advances in furniture manufacturing technology and the quality of modern glues and finishes.
