Eastwood Furniture is a family owned business that has been operated by Ron Nandor, his wife Angela and brother-in-law Lee Pagani for the last ten years. Their business is the wood they sell in pleasing, customizable designs.

All the furniture is composed of hardwood, sourced from a group of over 100 local Amish craftsmen. Many of the mainstream furniture stores are outsourcing the manufacturing of their products to other countries with lower labor costs. The end result being furniture made from second-rate materials such as pine that does not look as nice nor does it last as long. Eastwood Furniture is committed to bringing the Amish craftsmanship to its customers through fine wood, expert craftsmen and quality furniture. 

Twenty-five years ago the company was only offering white oak furniture, but today they offer solid oak, cherry, maple, or hickory in a variety of stains. Changing with the latest design trends, they obtained a bedroom and living room set made from repurposed wood. The furniture products range from children's furniture, dining and bedroom sets, roll top desks, entertainment centers, rockers and so much more.  

Whether you are looking for a piece to fit in your dining room, a bedroom suite or an entertainment center, Eastwood Furniture will have a piece for you. "Your way... for your home" is the motto proudly displayed on the wall behind the counter. The designs are completely negotiable; a customer can bring in a sketch, or a verbal idea and Eastwood Furniture will communicate the design to their craftsman. A customer can also walk into the store and manipulate an existing piece to match their taste. Not only can they change the stain color, size and wood type, but they can choose the legs off one table and put them under the top of another.  

The style at Eastwood Furniture is also up for discussion. A wide array of styles are available at Eastwood Furniture. Mission, Shaker, Traditional, Modern, and Contemporary styles can all be found in the showroom.

Eastwood Furniture will have a solution to any size constraints your house may cause or configurations your house may require. Their large showroom offers a variety of pieces from bed frames with multiple drawers for storage to hutches that transform into a dining room table when a drawer from the top is pulled out into a table.  An accompanying bench extends like the table to make seating for unexpected guests. When the table isn't needed it all slides back into the hutch form and appears to be just a beautiful, functional piece of furniture. 

"It is the benefit of working with craftsmen directly." Ron explained. His store is able to provide custom made pieces that look beautiful, but are completely solid and practical. Ron drew attention to one of the more recent custom piece that capitalizes on a market trend; an entertainment center containing a pull out section for a record player. There was the typical opening for a television, and a large cabinet on the side for a sizable movie collection. Nestled neatly behind a cabinet door to the left of the television opening the bottom of the cabinet could be pulled out to allow easy access to a record player. 

Customers come from all over the country in order to own the solid, American made pieces sold at Eastwood Furniture. A wide range of influence is explained through two factors: a website and strong repeat customers. "We get customers in here that bought their dining room set from us and are now buying a bedroom set for their children." Ron said. The repeat customers tend to tell their friends and then the customer base grows. The website enables the store to receive orders from people who are not able to make it into the physical store. 

Once a piece is crafted the new owner can pick up the piece at the shop or have it delivered. With the bigger pieces, delivery is the usual process because of the assembly required. Ron explained: "If all the pieces came already assembled it would be impossible to get them into the homes." 

Outdoor Polywood furniture is available outside of the shop in a variety of colors. The products include swings, gliders, picnic tables and Adirondack chairs. A complete Buckeye themed set is waiting on the lot for any fan to purchase. 

While furniture is their main business, Eastwood Furniture also has a selection of prints, lamps and home accessories. These additions are produced locally and offer a complete remodel of any room in your home.
