Walnut Creek Furniture offers over 20,000 sq. ft. of showroom space that showcases hundreds of styles for every room in your house. Whether you are looking to add a few new pieces to the family room or are considering a full remodel of the bedroom, you can find what you need with the help of the friendly staff at Walnut Creek Furniture.
"We have great customer service," said Galen Swartzentruber, manger at Walnut Creek Furniture. "Our staff is friendly and knowledgeable. That's what makes us tick."
Customer service has always been key in the success of the business. "Our relationships with our customers have been our biggest success. We have twenty-year relationships that are still going...that's something to be proud of," Dale Miller, owner, said in a previous interview with Amish Heartland.
Dale and Regina Miller purchased the business back in 1989 when it was just four months old. Having a father who had been a part of the retail business, Miller was driven to own a business of his own.
A new building was built, expanding Walnut Creek Furniture by 5,000 sq. ft. This allowed for the rapidly growing demand for furniture in the area. With a focus on customer service and quality furniture, Walnut Creek Furniture has grown into the success that its owners anticipated.
Providing customers with quality, long-lasting furniture has and still is an integral part of the business. Custom made pieces can be constructed from any type of wood and complete in any desired finish.
"We do a lot of custom work," said Swartzentruber. "We can make anything anybody wants. They dream it, we make it."
Over the past five years, Walnut Creek Furniture has incorporated a lot of industrial styles. Combinations of wood and steel are used in anything from tables to shelves and anything in between. These industrial pieces are constructed with steel bases and finished with a wood top.
Reclaimed wood is also very popular in the furniture industry. People love the old-fashioned, vintage feel to their furniture. Live edge is also very popular, said Swartzentruber.
Live edge wood is just as it sounds. When a table top is constructed from live edge wood, the edge of table looks exactly like a fresh cut tree. No sanding and smoothing of the edge takes place.
A lot like the Murphy beds that were once quite popular and still may be in some homes, Walnut Creek Furniture is introducing a line of Comfortwood Wall Beds. According to Swartzentruber, they have already been a hit among customers.
The wall beds work perfectly in rooms with limited space. When they are folded up into the wall, the underside of the bed doubles as a desk.
As the fall months roll in, Swartzentruber expects to see the fall rush working its way into Amish Country. Shoppers come to stock up on their holiday wares and gifts.
"We sell a lot of dining sets for Thanksgiving. People want to be able to seat their whole family around the table for the holidays," said Swartzentruber.
As the holidays approach, you can stay tuned for special deals and discounts by checking their website and facebook page. It's time to start thinking about those Christmas orders that need to be placed. A customized piece of furniture makes the perfect gift for family and friends.
