Furniture For Your Lifestyle

BY RACHEL HAGENBAUGH

Nestled in the heart of Ohio’s charming Amish Country, Homestead Furniture merges world-class quality and small-town hospitality to create an unparalleled experience for those in search of the right pieces to bring an entire home together. Furniture should represent you — not the store from which it came. At Homestead, we combine the craftsmanship of our heritage with cutting-edge designs, and the result is stunning statement pieces that are uniquely yours.

“We take ideas and dreams and bring them to life,” says Lavern Hershberger, store manager and oldest son of Homestead founder Ernest Hershberger. He highlights the thousands of pieces located within the destination’s 35,000-square-foot showroom — “In the past couple of years, we’ve added a private designer showroom, full outdoor gallery and leather gallery, as well as renovated and expanded our selection throughout the store to serve both residential and designer needs.”


“We take ideas and dreams
and bring the to life.”

Have you considered purchasing Amish-built furniture for its reputation of quality and longevity, but you just don’t love the style?

At Homestead, we get that. For more than 30 years, we’ve been staying on the cutting-edge of design trends. From modern, rustic, live-edge and transitional to shaker, mission, industrial or anything in between, if you can imagine it, we can design it. You choose everything, including the fabric, color, stain, size and shape, and our experienced design consultants will be there every step of the way to make the process simple, yet exhilarating. If you already have an interior designer, by all means bring them with you. We’re happy to work with them to help make your vision a reality.

“We are constantly observant of trends and bringing new products into our showroom every quarter,” Lavern says. “It’s so important to remain innovative.”

Limitless — that’s the best way to describe Homestead. From designer upholstery, leather, mattresses, rugs and lighting to metal work and hardware, we can create custom, heirloom-grade furniture for every room of your home, inside and out. “A lot of times, you have to sacrifice quality, size, color or style to get exactly what you want,” Lavern says, noting Homestead’s textured hardwood finishes, HD colors and thousands of fabric options. “We have a local blacksmith who does our custom metal work like bases and accents, as well as an on-site factory, which allows us to control quality, design and flexibility.”

Those qualities recently garnered the attention of The Metropolitan Museum of Art, which is launching an exclusive, limited-edition collaborative collection of furniture this spring with Abner Henry, Homestead’s sister company that launched in 2007.

“This is the first collaboration between The Met and a hardwood furniture company. Abner Henry is the pinnacle of luxury design,” Lavern says, encouraging designers to visit the line’s private showroom during their next visit to Homestead. It all comes back to selection, customization and quality.

At Homestead, it’s not just about stunning designs — although we’re certainly known for that. We’re also committed to a sustainable future and care about where our materials come from and the impact we leave on the environment. Our hardwoods are sourced in the U.S. and most of our materials come from within 30 minutes of our Mt. Hope location. The result is lasting, one-of-a-kind furniture that’s functional, fashionable and leaves our clients looking forward to their next home project.

Meet Jara Thomas JT Interiors

How did you discover Homestead Furniture?

When I started JT Interiors about five years ago, designers were really excited about what Homestead was becoming — their massive showroom, custom capabilities and location. To get the kind of service they provide, you’d usually have to travel to Columbus, Cleveland or Pittsburgh.

What is one of Homestead's most unique qualities?

Their attention to detail and the fact that they always find a way to make my customers’ visions come true. That’s difficult to find in a furniture store — most places don’t have those capabilities. Taking my clients to the showroom is an incredible experience. The possibilities are endless, and people get really excited about that. I couldn’t imagine not having Homestead as a resource.

What is one of your favorite design trends that Homestead has helped execute?

Live-edge tables. They’re like pieces of art — each one is unique. I’ve done a few with my clients, from a mid-century modern style with a base forged out of steel to one with a champagne gold finish.

What is one word you would use to describe Homestead Furniture?

Custom. Anything you can imagine, they can execute. Anybody can have a beautiful showroom, but what you see is what you get. At Homestead, their showroom is just the tip of the iceberg.

Meet Melinda Widner Daisy 11 Design

How did you discover Homestead Furniture?

I’ve known about Homestead for years, but I never had the opportunity to work with them until I started my own design firm in March 2022. During that time, I attended High Point Furniture Market in North Carolina with a goal of discovering unique and quality companies for my clients. While there, the Abner Henry showroom caught my eye, and I learned all about what Homestead had to offer interior designers and their clients

What made you want to work with Homestead?

Their reputation for high-quality furniture that is locally made. That’s important to my clients. They expect the best, and Homestead is a perfect fit. There is such a huge selection of materials, finishes, metals, wood species and ability to customize sizes and create different styles.

What did your clients think of the experience?

They love Homestead. They were very impressed with the showroom and enjoyed every step of the process. When I work with my clients, my goal is to create spaces that are unique. Homestead gives you a look that’s unlike anything you would find in a normal furniture store.

What is one word you would use to describe Homestead Furniture?

Quality. Homestead’s Abner Henry collection really stands out to me. Normally, a piece with that kind of style and quality would have to be imported from overseas. It’s a relief to be able to turn to Homestead with special projects because I know they’re going to pay attention to detail and create a piece of furniture that my clients will appreciate for years to come.

What To Expect

When you or your designer book an appointment at Homestead, trust that you will be in good hands from start to finish. Whether inspiration strikes as you browse the showroom or you’re ready with a sketch, photo or description — all you need to get started is an idea.

From single pieces to furnishing full rooms, every project gets the same tender care and attention to detail. At your appointment, your consultant will create a visual proposal that will bring your visions to life with sketches, dimensions and other details, and together you’ll nail down the look of each piece.

Once you’re satisfied, the design will be shared with Homestead’s master craftsmen, who fashion your dream into a reality. Finally, when your new furniture is completed, we’ll white glove deliver each piece to its new place in your home — from dreams to done.
