Shaker furniture is a distinctive style of furniture developed by the United Society of Believers in Christ’s Second Appearing, commonly known as Shakers, a religious sect that had guiding principles of simplicity, utility and honesty. Their beliefs were reflected in the well-made furniture of minimalist designs. (Quoted from Wikipedia)
Shaker communities were largely self-sufficient: in their attempt to separate themselves from the outside world and to create a heaven-on-earth, members grew their own food, constructed their own buildings, and manufactured their own tools and household furnishings. (Metropolitan Museum of Art)
Shaker Furniture was made thoughtfully, with functional form and proportion, rather than using ornamentation. Simple and functional were their driving principles 200 years ago and, although the Shaker community disbanded in 1959, their style of simple design is still popular today.
