Shaker

The Shakers were a puritanical religious sect that prospered in the 1800s, mainly in New England, New York State, and the Midwest. They lived in isolation from society on self-sufficient farms. Shaker furniture is practical, functional, and austere—without extravagance or ornamentation—but attractive in its simplicity. Shaker design principles continue to inspire modern funiture makers.

Like other Shaker pieces, the drop-leaf table shown above owes its beauty to its clean lines and complete devotion to function. With its leaves extended, the table can seat four people. When the entire surface is not needed, the leaves can be dropped down and the table stored compactly up against a wall.
