Experiences with Amish Furniture?

We've never bought a dining room table and chairs before, and we're just not quite sure we're being thorough in our questions and inspection of the samples we've seen at the furniture store. Is there anything we need to know? Specifics inside.

Mr Metarkest and I are on the verge of buying a dining room table
, arm chairs
, and side chairs
from a local store that is actually getting it from this company
. We're opting for quartersawn oak.
We're child-free so we're not looking for heirloom quality, but we do want something sturdy and attractive since we expect we'll be living with it for 40+ years. The local chain stores tend to have too much furniture that's veneered and plasticky, and the kinds of places we'd like to order from are way out of our price range
Those of you who've gone this route: are you glad you did? Are you happy with your purchases?
Many thanks in advance!
