A Brief History of Shaker Doors

Publication date:

Article Summary: 

This article discusses the history of Shaker doors and the Shaker style, which is characterized by simplicity, clean lines, tapered forms, and minimalist looks. The origin of Shaker style is linked to the Shaker movement and Quakerism, both of which originated in England before spreading to North America. The Shakers practiced communal living and self-sufficiency, and handcrafted furniture and doors were a part of their efforts. The Shaker community only grew when they had new followers or when members chose to adopt orphaned children. Today, Shaker doors, cabinets, and furniture are appreciated for their simplicity and understated beauty. Clera Windows + Doors is one of the trusted manufacturers of Shaker doors in Canada.
