Amish Heritage Shaker Ladder Back Side Chair (Upholstered Seat) - SKU#3760-U
Shaker Chairs have long been admired for their simple elegance and excellent durability. In the late 1700's several religious communities of the Society of Believers in the Second Coming of Christ sprang up along the eastern seaboard of the US. Known as Shakers for their worship exercises, they have since become famous for the material results of their religious fervor. Initially, their furniture was made only for use within their own communities, but the simple beauty of these early Shaker pieces soon became broadly recognized, and publicly available. The outstanding characteristics of Shaker-inspired furniture are mostly straight lines, right angles, the occasional gentle arch, and a simple elegance in absence of intricate ornamentation.
This Amish Heritage Shaker Ladder-Back Side Chair follows a true masterpiece of Shaker chair design and is typical of the style. By using 100% premium American hardwood components combined with modern glues and a range of quality finishes (see thumbnails above) it actually surpasses the beauty and durability of the original Shaker chair.
Characterized by unadorned Shaker-style turnings, a relaxing upholstered seat, and strongly braced legs for maximum stability and durability. Comfortable back support is ensured by the use of ergonomically curved back-splats and steam-bent back-posts.
