Shaker Furniture

Encyclopedy Index

Shaker furniture is distinctive style developed by the Shakers, a religious sect, in the late 18th century. Shaker furniture was inspired by their ascetic beliefs and widely admired for its simplicity, innovative joinery, quality, and functionality. Shakers made furniture for their own use, as well as for sale to the general public. Many surviving examples of Shaker furniture include such popular forms as Shaker tables, chairs, rocking chairs, and bed frames.
