You may have heard the term shaker, most probably
During 1820 and 1860 the Shaker movement was at its height, it was during this period the society had most of its members and became known for not only its craftsmanship but its disincentive furniture design. The United Society of Believers in Christ’s Second Appearing religious principles of simplicity, utility and honesty was translated into furniture through functional form and proportion.
The concept behind the Shaker design was to be-avoid of luxury ornamentation,
Today we can see this style more commonly in painted or sprayed kitchens, as this simplistic style suits both contemporary and Edwardian / Victorian properties. This design enhances the environment through its proportional form combined with modern ways of incorporating colour to add additional character in the kitchen.
Modern versions of the Shaker furniture can also be seen in many home stores and online shops, creating a contemporary feel to any given space. I love the form of these pieces of furniture and with the additional eye-catching colour incorporated into the design, makes it a gorgeous addition to any room.
