The Shaker Legacy: Perspectives on an Enduring Furniture Style

The Shaker Legacy: Perspectives on an Enduring Furniture Style Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Solid construction and honest functionality make Shaker furniture one of the most popular and timeless design categories. Based on extensive research and personal experience with the last working Shaker community in Maine, this book traces the roots of Shaker design to Shaker belief, which inspired the clean lines, careful craftsmanship, and signature details that define the style. The author also discusses the less known Victorian period of Shaker design and shows how this style has influenced subsequent ones. A bibliography, glossary, and index are included.

Synopsis:

A contributing editor of "Fine Woodworking" magazine takes readers on a visual tour of Shaker furniture design, restoration, and reproduction and also discusses the less-known Victorian period of the Shaker movement. 235 color photos. 39 illustrations.

Synopsis:

"The Shaker Legacy" is an intriguing visual tour of 150 classic Shaker pieces, many of which have never been previously photographed. In addition, Becksvoort gives a historical perspective of Shaker beliefs and how they shaped Shaker design. 250+ color photos.
