Shaker Workshops

Posted on | September 9, 2008 | 1 Comment

I have been checking out Shaker Workshop’s website like mad lately. I’m drawn to simple lines that feel modern and timeless. The Shakers were true utilitarians. Each object was created for a purpose rather then aesthetics. Reminds me of my favorite phrase from art school, “Just keep it simple”. A great design motto to live by.
