The Shaker knew how to simplify.

simplicity of design

the color

a place for everything and everything in its place

There was an exhibit of Shaker work at the High Museum a decade or so ago and the colors of the furniture were stunning.

beauty of curves

the beauty of wood

the wood tones

beauty in the wood grain

beauty in the warped table top

beauty in the color
