Handmade american amish furniture – amish oak in texas
Amish Oak in Texas was founded by Robert and Kristi Trimble, both native Texans. Robert and Kristi spent time in Pennsylvania and, while there, fell in love with the quality and beauty of the Amish furniture, as well as the fact that every item was carefully handcrafted. At first they began furnishing their own home with items. Upon returning to Texas, Robert felt God’s leading to bring American-made Amish furniture to other Texans. As he traveled back to Pennsylvania, Indiana, and Ohio to search for quality items, he learned more about the particular families that he visited as well as the Amish community in general.
In December 2004, they purchased a home just outside of Seguin, Texas, and on December 13, 2004, construction began on the first store location of Amish Oak in Texas (in Seguin), which officially opened February 19, 2005.
In October 2007, to better serve a growing customer base, Amish Oak in Texas moved to a new, larger facility in New Braunfels, Texas, and was able to display even more beautiful, handmade furniture selections. Amish Oak in Texas continued to grow and in March 2010, Ernie Blackmon, former owner of Carpet World, joined the Amish Oak in Texas as co-owner. Robert and Ernie were able to open a second location in San Antonio in May 2010. A new location in Waco will open soon in early 2016. All locations display a large amount of high-quality, made-in-the-USA Amish furniture.
