Amish Heritage Shaker Raised Panel Bed, Full (Double) Size - SKU#0140-F
Shaker Beds 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, Shaker 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 Raised Panel Bed uses the "Wainscot" construction method that was originally used for enclosing wagon sides, and later employed in finishing room interiors and building furniture. 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 beds.
The elegant raised panels and simple lines of this Shaker raised panel bed blend very well with any of the bedroom case-goods in our Shaker bedroom collection. This timeless style is widely acknowledged for it's ability to beautifully compliment either traditional or Contemporary décor, and is sure to fill a place of distinction in Your home.
