Mix and match your shaker end tables for a more eclectic aesthetic.

Shaker End Tables

Shaker end tables are light and airy, evoking a warm, country feel in any space they occupy. Traditionally, “country” style decor and furniture is sometimes seen as overly cluttered. The modern minimalism of Shaker end tables, however, is far from cluttered! Shaker style furniture is charactarized by its clean build, unassuming lines, and tapered leg shape. It’s beautiful in its simplicity and in its rich centuries old heritage.

Shaker end tables are some of the most versatile styles for your living room. So if you don’t feel comfortable committing to a certain style, this is the perfect type for you. Switch your styles around as much as you like and your Shaker end table will still look just as wonderful beside your couch or comfy living room chair.

What do you think, would you add a Shaker end table to your living room space? If not, what style do you like better?

Shaker Furniture: Simplistically Beautiful, Unbelievably Practical

Fast forward a few hundred years and Shaker furniture has become an increasingly popular style for the home.

With how rushed, cluttered, and busy our lives can get– when we go home, we are looking for simplicity too. And simplicity doesn’t mean a lack of style… its quite the opposite. Simplicity is style, and Shaker furniture does it right.

Maple Shaker Furniture

A few days ago, one of our customers sent us these great photos of his new Maple Shaker furniture in his bedroom. Staying true to Shaker sensibilities, the room has an uncluttered and simplistic look; using his American Shaker bedroom furniture to accent the darkness of his walls and highlight the maple flooring. I love it!

These photos inspired me to write a bit about why Maple Wood furniture is great, and the ways it can be used to enhance your own bedroom or other home space!

Maple Shaker Furniture: For a Relaxed, Zen Style space.

Maple Shaker FurnitureMaple Wood furniture has a much more informal l look to it than say, Walnut wood, which is typically associated with bold & modern decor styles. The lightness of this wood helps to give your space a relaxed and comfortable vibe– creating an understated interior design style that fits well with traditional Shaker aesthetic.

If you don’t know much about what Shaker Furniture Style encompasses, I’ll give you an overview:

1) Its clean, simple, and unfussy

2) Its practical

3) It features smooth lines and edges

4) Historically, it wasn’t made for “prettiness,” but for use; throughout the years, however, its understated aesthetic has become one of the most popular wood furniture styles!

Mid Century Modern Style Furniture
These  furniture designs in Walnut wood are classically Mid Century Modern . The geometric shapes and simplistic styling make them a favorite for the everyday modernist. Featured in this photo is the Estelle Chair with selections from the Catalina Collection.

Mid Century Modern, A Furniture Revolution.

Mid Century Modern Furniture is a furniture style characterized by clean simplicity and the integration of nature into the home. Gaining its popularity in the 1950s, Mid Century style was frequently used in residential/suburban areas with the goal of introducing modernism into the post-war American home.

The mid 20th century (1934-65 approximately) saw an extreme out-pour of creativity in graphic design, architecture, and furniture design– with styles unlike any before it.  In the book “Mid Century Modern: Furniture of the 1950s,” author Carla Greenberg officially cemented the term “mid century modern” into the interior design world, referring to the dramatic style of furniture, art, decor, and architecture borne in this period of American history.

World renowned for its innovative design and contribution to the American interior design and architectural world, Mid Century Style is still adored to this day. In the article Midcentury Furniture + Grandkid Nostalgia = Modern Trend,” author Andrea Hsu of NPR notes “Open a design magazine or turn on a home decorating show these days, and it’s clear: Midcentury modern is hot.”

So, if Mid Century Modern style is so hot– what exactly is it that people love?

Characteristics of Mid Century Modern Furniture

Lines: Ever watched an episode of Mad Men? Mid Century furniture is a lot like that. Clean, simple lines and smooth edges giving it a dramatically simplistic and sleek look. Before the 1950s, most furniture was intricately decorated with elaborate, complicated lines and adornments. But mid century furniture designers were modernists, they valued simplicity and created their furniture in accordance.

Color: Besides the variety of wood furniture used, other mid Century modern furniture makes use of beautifully vivid colors such as orange, red, yellow, and green paired with neutrals like tan, black or white.

Wood: Popular wood choices were walnut for its extraordinarily modern look, and cherry for its versatility.

Quality: Mid Century modern furniture is known for being expertly crafted by the best furniture designers. While this style of furniture is not as grand or bulky as popular furniture styles before it, it’s lightness in no way takes away from it’s quality or worth.

Many Vermont Woods Studios customers love  Mid Century Style– just this week we received a lovely customer photo from a client in New York who’s furniture exemplified the Mid Century simplicity. If you’re unfamiliar with our designs, feel free to browse dozens of modern furniture designs on our online showroom.
