Shaker Counter Stools

made in maine by s.timberlake

The Shakers made high stools to be used as "work chairs" at their looms, desks, and ironing tables. The simple design, light weight, and sturdy construction of the Shaker ladderback counter stools we make are ideal for daily use at the kitchen counter. We make more custom, "built-to-order" Shaker  counter stools than anyone we know and we make them with seat heights between 24" and 32" to fit your kitchen counter or bar.

Kitchen counters are typically 36" high and bar height counters are 42". We have found a seat height of 25" - 26" very comfortable for the 36" kitchen counter/island. For bars, we recommend 30" - 31/2".

Product Tip

Taking Care of Your Chair Seats

We are often asked about how the cotton woven seats in our Shaker chairs wear.  When we spill something on our 35+ year old chairs, or they become slightly soiled, we clean our chairs with a carpet shampoo (Resolve) that is found at most grocery or home stores. We understand your concern but we build furniture that is meant to be used everyday, for many, many years.

Shawl Bar Shaker Counter Stool

 

 

 

When the Shakers started selling the chairs they were making in their factory in Mt. Lebanon, N.Y. to the outside world, they made rocking chairs with a bar that stretched across the top of the chair back. The bar was intended to be used for either hanging a cushion from or draping a small blanket or shawl over. Many homes in the 19th century were heated with wood or coal and having a shawl or blanket handy was commonplace. Like so many other inventions, the Shakers saw the addition of a shawl bar as a very practical  adaptation.

Product Tip

Taking Care of Your Chair

Our chairs and counter stools are finely finished with two topcoats of durable, non-yellowing satin waterborne varnish then waxed and rubbed with a protective paste wax. Over time the finish is bound to become scratched and worn. This is expected with daily use, especially in the home of an active family. Reapplication of a paste wax such as

 Briwax or Trewax (which contain Carnauba, or Brazilian palm oil) will continue to enhance the finish as well as provide some protection. For cleaning the finish and removing scuff marks, we recommend using some mineral spirits on a cloth, then rubbed with Old English Lemon Oil.

Shaker Style Counter Stools

We have made hundreds of stools without turning the distinct, identifiable, Shaker community finials found at the tops of the back legs. We call these our "No Finials" chairs and counter stools. They are built with the same attention to detail and construction as our reproduction pieces. The look and feel is very modern and the counter stools are often selected by our customers who want a sparse, contemporary look while getting a light-weight stool with an extremely comfortable seat.
