Shaker furniture is known for its simple designs and lasting quality. Shakers, a religious sect that sought to separate themselves from the outside world and create heaven-on-earth, formed largely self-sufficient communities that grew their own food, constructed their own buildings, and manufactured their own tools and household furnishings. Shaker communities in the US peaked in the mid-19th century and slowly declined following the Civil War, but their timeless furniture designs remain popular to this day.
