While some traditional furniture styles are adored for their intricate detailing and complex designs; others are known for their simplicity and timelessness. This is especially true for Shaker furniture, with designs that are highly functional and world renowned for elegant simplicity.
Shaker Style furniture has a history deeply rooted in New England, initially being used as the premier furniture style for the common American household. Meaning, this was a furniture style adored by small tradesmen, local craft workers, mechanics, repairmen, farmers, and the like. Its exceptional craftsmanship was highly sought after by those looking for furniture with function; with style being an afterthought. It challenged the idea that furniture should be extravagant; and found popularity across the United States (and now the world) for its American Made Craftsmanship and humble roots.
Hundreds of years later people are still attracted to Shaker style furniture and what it represents…not to mention, its understated style is fitting for practically any home.
