Vermont has a long history of designing and building Shaker style furniture, which is surprising to some because Vermont really wasn't a hub of the original American Shaker settlements that date back to 1774. But somehow the craftsmanship and philosophy behind Shaker furniture did take root and spread throughout Vermont during subsequent years and it is alive and well today.
We've gathered together some of the finest Shaker style furniture made in Vermont and indeed anywhere in the world. We sorted it by room:
- Shaker Bedroom Furniture
- Shaker Dining Furniture
- Shaker Living Room Furniture
- Shaker Home Office Furniture
and by style/collection:
- Vermont Shaker Furniture
- American Shaker Furniture
- Classic Shaker Furniture
- New England Shaker Furniture
- Renfrew Shaker Furniture
You'll see that the our Shaker furniture as with the originals is largely based on the concepts
of order, utility and durability. Initially the Shakers discarded any unnecessary ornament at all, focusing only on clean lines, simple form and proportion. Our furniture makers have stayed pretty close to those traditional Shaker ideals although you'll see slight embellishments here and there that serve to enhance the style and add visual appeal.
Let us know if you have any questions about our Shaker beds and night stands, Shaker chests, Shaker dressers and mirrors, Shaker armoires, Shaker china cabinets, Shaker dining tables or Shaker dining chairs.
