Shaker style furniture is a distinctive style of furniture developed by the United Society of Believer’s in Christ’s Second Appearing, commonly known as Shakers. They were a religious sect that had guiding principles of simplicity, utility, and honesty. Their beliefs were reflected in the well-made furniture of minimalist designs.
This type of furniture was made thoughtfully, with functional form and proportion. The Shakers didn’t use ornamentation such as inlays, carvings, metal pulls, or veneers. Instead, they developed, “creative solutions such as asymmetrical drawer arrangements and multipurpose forms to add visual interest.”
Furniture was made of cherry, maple or pine lumber, which was generally stained or painted with one of the colors which were dictated by the sect, typically blue, red, yellow or green. Drawer pulls for dressers or other furniture were made of wood. Luckily for you, Fireside Furniture sells this and more!
