Town & Country – Shaker Extraordinaires

There are friendships and then there are those who stick with you through it all. Town & Country is the latter. They are Mainers, long time business partners, and most of all – friends of Sturbridge Yankee Workshop.

In 1974 in the deep throws of a Maine winter, Town & Country sprang up through the snow pack to make custom cabinets. Over time their business grew to include all types of woodworking, but they kept the same sturdy eye on getting it right. More time passed and in 1987, Town & Country became allies in the world of furniture; teaming up with others meant creating spectacular furniture at a great price, made right here in our wonderful state of Maine. These marvels of lumber, these overlords of timber, make our entire line of Shaker furniture. Town and Country perhaps will be modest when they speak of how incredibly well put together their furniture pieces are, but we feel it necessary to shout it out  for them.

Combining long lines, classic styling, and the pure simplicity, it’s hard to miss the beauty of shaker furniture. The Country Shaker Table and End Table are perfect examples of how uncomplicated design can be beautiful. The wood speaks for itself on the top, showing the swirling grain, capped with clean rounded edges. The stained legs and drawer pop out in great colors. We think the proverbial cherry on top is the stained drawer pull – mirroring the stunning cherry stain on top. Town and country creates all kinds of marvelous shaker furniture for us, from the simplistic Shaker Storage Bench, the great Country Shaker Coffee Table. They make it easy to fix up your work space with the Desk Organizer. Even if your living room needs a bit of storage, the Shaker Tall Bookcases are perfect in any traditionally furnished home. Short on space? The Shaker Low Bookcase is the perfect height for filling the wasted space below a window.

With all of these options and the sheer quality of the craftsmanship, we believe the pieces from Town & Country work in any home and will hold up for years to come.
