Handmade Hardwood Shaker Hall Table: Adding Elegance to Any Home


Shaker-style furniture is simple but elegant

Shaker furniture is known for its simplicity, innovative construction, quality, and usability. It was developed by the United Society of Believers in Christ’s Second Appearing—a religious group that came to America from England in 1774—also known as the “Shakers”. The ascetic religious beliefs of the Society inspired the design of Shake furniture, which they made for their own use and for sale to the public.
The underlying principles of Shaker design have given inspiration to some of the finest designers of modern furniture. Collections of Shaker furniture are maintained by art and historical museums in the U.S. and U.K., as well as in numerous private collections around the world.

Popular examples of Shaker furniture survive today—especially a variety of tables, chairs, desks and shaker beds.

Handmade Shaker hall table utilizes traditional Shaker building techniques and design

Shaker furniture design and construction techniques inspire and enhance the handmade hardwood Shaker hall table from Hawkridge Furniture. Constructed with premium hand-selected hardwoods—birch, maple, cherry, walnut, and sustainably-harvested mahogany—this custom heirloom piece is fashioned with traditional mortise-and-tenon joinery.
The hall table has unique character accents and design features that balance Shaker simplicity—while sacrificing none of the durability or functionality. The flaming hardwood top, dovetailed drawer, and tapered legs—all hand-rubbed and waxed with natural oil—add a touch of elegance to any hallway, and atmosphere with traditional warmth to any home.

The table measures 15″x42″x30″and comes standard with hammered, antique-finish brass knobs.
