Shaker Ladder back Chairs

made in maine by s.timberlake

Shaker dining chairs have been made in our Bethel, Maine workshops for over 43 years  The first reproductions we made were chairs originally made at the Shaker community in South Union, Kentucky. Like most of the chairs made by the Shakers, the construction of ours is 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.

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.
