Amish Heritage Shaker Rectangular Coffee Table (With Drawer) - SKU#5060
Shaker Furniture has long been admired for its 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 the Shaker community, 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.
While coffee tables, as we now know them, were practically unknown in Early American times, this Amish Heritage Rectangular Shaker Coffee Table incorporates some of the best elements of the style to create an occasional table which meets the needs of the modern home. With a spacious top for books, sculpture, or anything else that you might display on a coffee table, it will certainly fill a practical and graceful place in your living room. The ample lower shelf provides additional storage for magazines, coasters etc.
