Founded in 1747 in Manchester, England, the Shakers are a religious group of people who sought greater meaning in life. They became known as Shaking Quakers. They believed that every object in the home should have a function and that decoration was unnecessary. The shakers handcrafted wooden furniture is in a limited colour palette of red, blue, yellow and blue-green. Info source: www.museumfurniture.com

The Shakers believed that every object in the home should have a function and that decoration was unnecessary. 'Whatever is fashioned, let it be plain and simple and for the good' and 'Beauty rests on utility' are two of their favourite sayings. But because they also believed that the quality of their work was a testament to God, each item they made was painstakingly honed to perfection. Info source: www.bbc.co.uk/homes
