Many people love the Shaker style but may not fully
understand exactly where the look came from and why it is so revered the world
over. Here we have an example of the Shaker style in the Arlington door in Graphite and an opportunity to tell the Shaker story - just quickly! As an
American religious group, the Shakers believed in purity and simplicity. They
expressed this through the furniture that they created. It was carefully
handmade, without flourish, and concentrated on a style that was both beautiful and well-constructed.
The Arlington door is the perfect example of the Shaker
style. With its wide frame, inset panel and subtle grooves, it looks as though
the craftsmen from the Shakers have gently passed down their skills to the
makers. The Shakers no longer exist in the US but their style endures and it is
a style that is used across many areas of furniture - and in particular, kitchen
doors. Of course, this classic style is easily brought into the 21st century by adding the right colour and placing it in the right kitchen.
Graphite is a colour that works incredibly well on this
simple Arlington door. It is a deep and sultry shade, but as it is, it
isn't too flashy. It almost has a natural or organic feel due to the granite feel and look. You can add all kinds of colours to your kitchen to
bring this shade to life and if you want to hark back to the original Shakers
you could go for simple colours such as whites and vanillas - these will lift
the darker colour but not attempt to outshine the lovely Arlington door in the
shade of Graphite.
