Simply Shaker Doesn’t Mean Shaker Furniture is Always the Same
If you frequent our blog, you’re probably an expert in Shaker Style Furniture. One thing I’ve noticed about Shaker Furniture is how easily stereotyped it is. I’ve come to notice when people think of Shaker style furniture, they think of plain and simple furniture. They think of Windsor style chairs and antiques.
But, Vermont handcrafted Shaker style furniture is anything but plain and antique.
So long are the days of dens and home offices, at least in the traditional sense. With homes being built and renovated with an open layout, families are coming together in different ways. While everyone is constantly on the go, on their phones or laptops, open layouts help bring everyone together.
Sometimes to make an improvement to a room, you don’t have to completely renovate the space. This past year, I’d been feeling very unsatisfied about my living room and dining space. Instead of completely redoing those spaces, my family replaced our cheap TV console with a wood TV cabinet. And, we replaced our maple dining table and chairs with a darker stained wood dining set that better matches the wood paneling in our dining space.

Freshen Up Your Home This Spring With Timeless Shaker Furniture
I’m on Pinterest and Houzz daily and my social media newsfeeds are usually drowning in posts from home decor and interior design magazines and bloggers. Occasionally I’ll stumble upon a bed with an outlandish headboard or a bedroom with a very specific theme (think Extreme Home Makeover) and I’ll wonder to myself, “What are you going to do in a few years when you don’t like the decor anymore? You’ll have to completely redo the room and buy all new furniture.” To me, a room designed with a subtle theme and transformative furniture makes more sense.
