Shaker Style Furniture
Shaker furniture is a unique style of wood furniture developed by the Shakers who were a religious group that immigrated to America from Manchester, England in 1774. Furniture Shaker style was inspired by the ascetic religious beliefs the Shakers and came to be widely admired for the furniture’s quality, simplicity, functionality and innovative joinery. Wood Shakers furniture was made for use by members of the Shaker group as well as for sale to the greater public.
A good number of antique Shaker furniture pieces have survived the centuries and are preserved in various collections. Preserved pieces of Shaker furniture include Shaker tables, Shaker chairs and rocking chairs and Shaker cabinets.
