When John Mueller founded Mueller Furniture in 1927, he wanted to run the kind of business that people would trust. With the Great Depression looming, this worked out well for someone like “honest John”, as he would come to be known.
In the midst of the Great Depression, this often meant being more patient with customers who recently lost jobs, or whose savings were running low. This kind of service cultivated life-long relationships with his customers. They trusted him, and their families in turn trusted him. Thus Mueller Furniture has survived, as a family run furniture store, for over 89 years.
In that time, the Mueller family has learned to recognize well made furniture. This is especially true of Amish Furniture, as Lynwood Mueller would serendipitously discover while on a vacation to Gettysburg, Pennsylvania in the late 1990s.
``Ever wonder why the big trend in the mid 2000s was dark espresso and merlot finished furniture? It's because the furniture makers in China and Vietnam were using cheap wood veneers, so they slapped a dark espresso or Merlot finish on everything to hide the imperfections and blemishes.``
Mark, Mueller, CEO AFD USA
Amish Furniture is so Great
If you are looking for a green product, that is made by master craftsman in the USA, and will last a lifetime - AFD USA's Amish Furniture has you covered.
At the time, the big family name furniture companies were continuing to pack up and head over seas. Having taken over the family business in 1977, Lynwood new what high quality furniture was all about, but he was struggling to find it here in the US. So when he visited a furniture market, in the small town of Lancaster, just outside of Gettysburg, he knew he had found what he was looking for.
With Amish Furniture, customers could pick a china cabinet, or a kitchen table and chairs, the perfect wood finish, a grain to match, and have furniture that they, their children, and their grand children could use. Amish Furniture was the heirloom quality furniture America was losing.
So in 2004, when Mark Mueller came on board to help run the family business, he already understood the value of Amish Furniture. What he needed was a way to serve the larger appeal of Amish Furniture. That’s why in 2015 Mark developed Amish Furniture Direct USA (AFD USA).
Mark’s vision for AFD USA was clear – he wanted to create an online store for Amish Furniture. A store that offered the same premium shopping experience his customers were enjoying at Mueller Furniture, but was accessible nation wide, and from the comfort of their own homes.
When John Mueller started Mueller Furniture in 1927, he knew the key to a long-term, successful business lay in the relationships he created with his customers. In today’s modern era, Mark understands the need to take this a step further. At AFD USA the goal is to provide you with the highest quality Amish Furniture, amazing service, and create a relationship with you that will last a lifetime.
