Shaker style furniture is rooted in a tradition of simplicity, function and honesty. A style founded by an early American Christian sect, they believed that simple and useful were the key factors in quality of craftsmanship when it came to furniture, buildings and anything needed for life and home.
They were largely self-sufficient and believed that to live simply and honestly required them to craft things truly from scratch. From selecting the trees to be cut to staining and finishing the furniture pieces. Shaker furniture and the Shaker style lives on today in tables, shaker cabinets and shaker style buffets and servers.
