Amish Heritage Shaker Rectangular End Table (With 1 Drawer) - SKU#5170
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 End Tables, as we know them, were practically unknown in Early American times, this Amish Heritage Shaker Rectangular End Table incorporates many of the best elements of the Shaker style to create an occasional table which meets the needs of the modern home. With a spacious top for books or displays, a handy drawer to hold those things that find their way into end table drawers, and an ample lower shelf; it certainly can fill a practical and graceful place in your favorite room. 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 Cabinets & Tables.
