Combining Modern American Furniture Design with Old World Craftsmanship

What happens when an innovative furniture designer & a veteran furniture rep collaborate with America’s Premier Amish furniture maker? They come up with a stylish, versatile furniture line that gives their clients exactly what they asked for! The result is the American Modern Collection, which launched at the High Point Market in October 2016 (IHFC D-1101). 

Determined to create a classic modern bedroom collection that combines old world craftsmanship with timeless American design, Roy Miller, visionary owner of Country View Woodworking; Michael Robinson, innovative furniture designer; and Jim McCudden, veteran furniture salesman, ignored the trends and asked their clients what they wanted. 

Then, Roy, Mike, and Jim rolled up their sleeves and gave their clients exactly what they asked for: Fashion, quality, value, and impeccable service. They began by creating options, including six drawer fronts with the finest quality hardware; three leg and base options; and three standard drawer sizes. Those options allow clients to build a variety of nightstands, dressers, and tall chests that meet their needs and individual preferences. In all, there are over 250 pieces in the collection. 

They also developed a fresh new color palette with a variety of new paint and stain finishes. On their beds they offered many different bed frame and platform options with wood and upholstered headboards. They hand-selected the most durable fabric and vinyl options on the market. 

The American Modern Collection not only provides options, but the same old world craftsmanship that Country View Woodworking is best know for. But what exactly does old world craftsmanship mean? It means handmade by Amish craftsmen and women using sustainably sourced American solid hardwoods. This high quality construction features solid wood, dovetailed drawer boxes, full extension undermount drawer glides, maximum drawer space, and impeccable finishing. The furniture is even finished on the inside just as it is on the outside, demonstrating the level of detail and attention that goes into every piece of furniture produced by CVW!

The American Modern Collection was recognized as a finalist for the prestigious ASFD Pinnacle Award for Design Excellence in 2017. Ultimately Chef Paula Deen won the award, but CVW was honored to be the first Amish factory ever nominated!
