What is Shaker Style Furniture?
During the time period of the American Revolutionary War Shaker Style Furniture was born. The style became known when a religious sect of the Quakers, called Shakers, arrived in America. Escaping the religious turmoil of their native England, the Shakers settled in upper New York State and New England. Therefore the Shakers formed closely-knit, self-sufficient communities.
To accommodate their large worship gathers, the Shakers built their won furniture. They often used locally grown woods, such as pine, maple and cherry. There were most known for crafting furniture that reflected their commitment to simplicity and practicality.
