Blast from the past: Shaker furniture
by Lambert / July 31, 2014
Blast from the past: Some of my references when I speak about design. Shaker furniture is handcrafted, simple and strong. It's born out of necessity. It works with the wood instead of forcing it into shape. Which gives a natural expression of wood. In this example (above), it was common to have hooks all around rooms. You could hang most of the furniture for a floor sweeping. I think this flexibility in a room is brilliant. It also suggests life within the shelter, things and people move around.
