This purity in form has resulted in one of the most beloved and enduring forms of furniture and hope chest styles, not only in America, but around the world. The Shaker Style has a timeless appeal with its simple line form which is not just simple, but is elegant as well.The simple staining brings out the beauty of the wood grain and the joinery styles. This furniture style represents the Shaker ideals of harmony and order within every aspect of their lives. This influenced the Shaker community to improve upon every design to achieve the form with the purest style. By creating all things surrounding them to be of the highest efficiency, the Shakers would then have more time to pursue religious endeavors.
So, how do clean out piles of mental junk that you have been storing for a long time? In order to clear you mind of clutter, you must be willing and devoted to a new way of positive thinking. You must start to manage your mind to welcome fresh air into your life.
Danish wood workers began constructing furniture with the Shaker style influence at the turn of the last Century. It started when one rocking chair caught the interest of an architect by the name of Kaare Klint. Klint was one of the main influences in Scandinavian modern design. The Shakers had started exporting their furniture during the last 19th Century, so this ladder backed rocking chair had found its way to Denmark.This chair was not identified as being of Shaker style for many years. It was thought to be just Early American in design. This Shaker ladder backed rocking chair was initially used as a teaching aide by Klint.
These Early American Hope Chests were not made with cedar on the inside. Cedar linings and bottoms are the additions of present day craftsmen to their Blanket Chests. This is a favorite feature among buyers since cedar eliminates insect pests and releases a wonderful aroma every time the lid is opened. This fresh smell can be rejuvenated by simply roughing the cedar with small grit sandpaper.
