S.Timberlake Made to Order Shaker Furniture

Shaker Canterbury Chairs

made in maine by s.timberlake

Our Shaker Canterbury ladder back and padded back chairs feature the simple, clean lines that are notable, just liked the originals made by the Shakers at their Canterbury, New Hampshire community in the mid 1800's. Like all the Shaker chairs we reproduce, the chairs are not "straight." There is a five degree backward tilt which the Shakers incorporated to add comfort to the piece, one of many improvements they made to the traditional "slat back chairs" found throughout early, New England villages.

The Canterbury chairs, like those from the Enfield, New Hampshire community, feature graduated back slats that are broad and over substantial back support. These beautiful chairs are perfect for dining and as occasional chairs for around the house and in the study. All our chairs are made to order so we can make the seat height to sit perfectly with your existing furniture.




The distinct Shaker community finials are found atop all our chairs. The Canterbury finial is an eye-pleasing oblong shape and is our most popular. It blends easily with many other furniture styles from traditional to contemporary.
