This furniture style is the end result of the strict Shaker religion viewpoint that that all things were to be created for maximum utilitarian efficiency. Added embellishments were thought to be entirely unnecessary and a wrongful expenditure. This is why the Shaker Style form has simple lines and no decorative elements such as inlay work, added raised wood designs or engraved designs that were common among other Early American hope chest styles. Only on a few furniture pieces is there a little bit of beaded work design. The same reasoning went into why the legs were always straight and without any curves. In addition, Shaker furniture is usually stained rather than painted in holding with this viewpoint.

The painted designs on some of these Hope Chests are very elaborate which has enabled historians to be able to categorize them by region and to recognize specific craftsmen. These Dower Chest designs included the use of inlaid leaf and flower motifs, unicorns, hearts, birds, hex designs to ward off evil spirits, flower designs mainly of roses or tulips, the name of the girl receiving the Hope Chest and the date that the Hope Chest was presented.
