One of the most interesting parts of Sugarloaf Craft Festivals is seeing how artists like Paul Miller blend different styles. A woodworker, Miller creates beautiful furniture in a style he has dubbed “Amish Fusion.”
As its name suggests, Miller’s style takes the techniques used in Amish furniture making and blends them with other techniques. The end result is a beautiful and unique product that shows Miller’s ingenuity and craftsmanship. Miller exclusively uses Appalachian hardwood, which gives each piece of furniture a rustic finish that adds beauty to any home.
Miller specializes in full dining sets. Since every dining room is different, Miller can customize any order to fit any size room. He creates furniture that families want to gather around and then pass down to the next generation.
Find Miller’s excellent work at the next Sugarloaf Craft Festival where he and other artisans can tell you the inspiration behind their work.
