The Shakers were 19th century America’s communal utopian society.  According to the book Shaker ( Jane Sprigg and David Larkin, 1987  ), ‘.. Shaker chairs were typically light but sturdy’ – they excluded all decorative elements from their furniture, pursuing pure functionality and simplicity.  They were often made for the exact size of Believers, members of the Shaker community.  As a part of their neat and beautifully crafted interior fittings, chairs were hung on the wall pegs when they cleaned the floor.



Interior for the Shaker Chair

They had a simple rail + hook system all over their home to hang clock, clothes drier, brooms and candle holders.  We developed the interior colour inspired by authentic historic Shaker interiors, to reconstruct a small corner of a spinning room with turquoise blue rails and a large window.



In Japan, group of high quality craftsmen are reviving the original of Shaker chairs, making and selling them.
