Shaker

This style of furniture fits right into today's home interiors even though it was first designed in the late 18th century. The Shakers (a religious sect of people who inhabited the northeastern states) prided themselves on quality workmanship and made everything from tables and chairs to brooms and hatboxes. The "ladder back" chair and "candlestick" table have become icons of Shaker design.

Furniture attributes include straight lines with simple turned arms and legs and lacked any decoration except for the bright paint colors that adorned some pieces.

Local woods such as maple and fruitwoods are common and left in a natural finish for today's market.

Hardware is usually not visible with door and drawer pulls made from turned wood fashioned into small knobs.
