Shaker Furniture

Shaker furniture is not so much a specific chair type or a specified designer like the others I have discussed.  Shaker is a religious form with the act of making the piece prayer-like.  The lack of adornment celebrates the simple wood and elevates species such as pine, oak, maple or whatever is regionally available to a wonderful piece.  Shaker style celebrates the joinery, the form, and the functionality of the object rather than adornment for the sake of making something pretty.
