Shaker Ladderback Chairs

made in maine by s.timberlake

We have been making the classic Shaker ladderback chair for over forty-two years at our workshops in Bethel, Maine. The first reproductions we made were chairs originally made at the Shaker community in South Union, Kentucky. The construction was based on a New Lebanon, New York community piece where chairs were first made for sale to the outside world starting in the 1860's. We have adapted some of the original measurements taken from original Shaker chairs (depths and heights of the seats for instance) to accommodate current users and lifestyles. Though the Shakers did not invent the "slat back" style chair, they made significant improvements to the design, by constructing the chair with a backward tilt, using fabric strapping for the seats, meticulously fitting the rungs and back slats, and refining the size of all the component parts to complete the simple, symmetrical form that is an icon of American furniture design.

Shawl bars (or cushion rails) were originally found on the Shaker rocking chairs made at the Mt.Lebanon community. Over the years a number of our customers have asked us to add the shawl bar to dining chairs. After making hundreds of chairs in this style, we have added it to our catalog.

South Union Shaker Arm Chair

 

 

 

The South Union chair had various finials turned on the back legs, as did the other communities depending on the use for which the chair was made and who made it. Our South Union finial was reproduced from a child's high chair. We love the simple, near acorn-like shape.
