Mountain View Furniture

GREENEVILLE, Tenn.(WVLT) -- Faith and family is the core of many of us in East Tennessee.

It's even more so for Eli and Wilma Mullett, owners of Mountain View Furniture in Greeneville

"I was Amish. As I grew up we went Mennonite then and we had vehicles," said Wilma.

They are very fundamental in faith but also having high standards when it comes to furniture. All you have to do is say the word Amish.

"The Amish and the Mennonite both have always taken great pride in their workmanship," said Eli Mullett.

The family moved to Greeneville by way of Pennsylvania, a mecca in the Amish way of life.

Wilma says, "The dividing line is if you drive a horse and buggy if you're Amish. If you have cars you're no longer Amish, dress is a little different, religious beliefs are about the same."

It was only natural they opened up their business after noticing there weren't many local Amish furniture stores around.

"One thing that's unique about this furniture is, it's all made in the USA , all hand crafted and you can come in the store and create your own furniture", said Eli.

Whether it's rocking the little one or eating at a hand crafted dinner table, the Amish and Mennonites feel family is a huge center of their faith.

"They believe what they do is all to the honor and glory to God, and I think they're hearts are there."
