Steiner’s Amish Furniture is a passion project for founders Brent and Stephanie Steiner.
Living in the small village of Apple Creek, Ohio, they were familiar with the quality of Amish furniture. The couple considered opening a store and with the encouragement of Brent’s winter visitor parents, they moved to Arizona to share their love of Amish furniture with the Valley.
“They are very familiar with the Amish community,” said Pamela Sanchez with Steiner’s Amish Furniture. “They established a business out here and moved them and their daughters, who were very young, out here.
“It was a passion for them. They knew the quality of the furniture was a big deal. It’s hard to find that quality in today’s products. You get what you pay for. They wanted to share their love of those products with the people out here.”
The first Steiner’s Amish Furniture opened in 2000 in Sun City. The small project is now a 15,000-square-foot showroom filled with transitional, mission, shaker, modern and midcentury modern furniture.
Since then, Steiner’s Amish Furniture debuted its Tempe location. At both stores, customers can design furniture with wood samples and kiosks.
Steiner’s Amish Furniture does not outsource. The family business features a variety of builders who have different specialties in dining, living room and bedroom furniture. Sanchez said everything is handcrafted in the United States.
“We work with about 150 builders in Ohio and Indiana,” she added. “We have them build the furniture to customers’ specifications. We bring it to our finish shop and truck it here. We deliver it to everybody’s door.
“It’s a lot of work, but it’s worth it because it’s quality furniture. One of the things the Amish pride themselves on is that they hand-craft everything. It’s worth it.”
