Shaker Oak

The Shaker society can be traced back to 17th century France and the Camisards. Having lost their battle with the army of Louis XIV in 1706, some of the survivors were forced to flee to England. They believed through purity, mankind could find redemption and this was translated through all aspects of their lives including their furniture. Luckily for us, their striving for perfection on earth has left us with a lasting testament to their Industry, in the shape of their furniture. By striping away unnecessary ornament and condemning beauty for beauty's sake, the Shakers contrived to produce some of the most beautiful furniture made. "All beauty that has no foundation in use soon grows distasteful and needs continuous replacement with something new." By concentrating on form and function they were probably 150 years ahead of their time; the precursors to the modern movement.

Andrew Gillmore, our designer and Jonathan sat down and made some sympathetic yet personal changes to a range of furniture that has existed for several centuries. We are extremely pleased with our range of oak furniture and its popularity is as great as ever. These timeless classics suit any home of any period or style and bring simple elegance just as the Shaker Society intended.
