The Shaker's


Initially designed in the late 1700s by followers of the religious group the Shaking Quakers, shaker furniture has become a staple in our interior design, known for being timeless and elegant.

Shaker-style furniture has clean lines, tapered legs, and minimalist designs. It's simple, functional, practical, and elegant. Early shaker furniture artisans focused on simplicity and integrity in their designs because they believed excessive ornamentation or decoration was a sin of pride.


"Perfection is achieved not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing more to take away."


Antoine de Saint-Exupery


Shaker furniture has become increasingly popular for traditional and modern homes as our busy lifestyles cause us to seek simplicity and calmness in our home décor.


Ladder Back Chairs


Most often seen in Shakers' woven-seated rocking chairs, ladder backs are backrests made out of a few wooden boards which run horizontal to the chair's posts. Yet, Shakers could mould soft or hard lines into these sections to develop a beautiful linear flow, and these wooden rocking chairs were very lightweight so that they could be hung from a nail in the wall when they weren't in use.


Paints and Stains


Shakers painted or stained most of their furniture with a specific variety of sanctioned colours they could use, which include yellows, reds, greens, and blues.
