Inside Trailer Park - Brooklyn, NY


Since 1998, Trailer Park has been Brooklyn's source for unique home furnishings and handcrafted Amish furniture. When owner Chris Houghton founded the store, his goal was to offer people in his Brooklyn neighborhood a place to find great, vintage (1950s-1970s) home furnishings and accessories at an affordable price. At the same time, he continued working with the Amish craftspeople he knew who were building furniture from recycled barnwood.

Starting with the classic farm table, Trailer Park's Amish collection grew to include what we offer today: tables of many sizes, kitchen hutches, bookcases, dressers, sideboards, desks, side and end tables, benches and more. Each piece is made-to-order and then handcrafted by Amish carpenters, using recycled wood from old barns (white pine that is about 100 years old). We like that the Amish produce this beautiful furniture from recycled wood, with fine artistry, and without electric tools. Although some of the Amish utilize gas-powered tools, most of the furniture is built using hand-tools. The result is exceptionally well-built, long-lasting and attractive furniture.

As creator, owner and operator, Chris Houghton combines his passion for home furnishings and design with his role as a longtime resident and friend of Park Slope, Brooklyn. He strives to provide customers with a quality product, personal service, and the assistance they need to make home a fun and more beautiful place. Come on by and you'll see what we mean!
