Crafting Your Furniture

Quality Matters

Shop With Confidence

Mt. Monadnock Region
Our Team
master craftsman Stephen C. Barlow builds furniture with you, the customer, in mind. Steve is a third generation New England woodworker who started Shaker Style in 1989 in a small garage in Peterborough, NH. In 1990, he purchased a farmhouse just a short drive off Route 101 in the scenic Mount Monandnock region. His shop is located in this historic 1850’s farmhouse at 292 Chesham Road. The old Livery Stable has been beautifully transformed into a spacious woodshop and a welcoming showroom. The Chesham R.R. Depot still stands next door as a picturesque reminder of days gone by.

“The choice of grain patterns in the wood, and the flow it creates with the lines of the piece, form the foundations of my work. My pieces start with a study of Shaker originals, then evolve into furniture that is all my own. The body of their work and the way it stemmed directly from the needs of their daily lives forms a bottomless well of inspiration for my craft.”
“To me, the art of furniture making is a synthesis of functional, graceful design and well-engineered construction.”

“With functional simplicity as my primary goal, I build future antiques one piece at a time.”

from Shaker Style, you support an American small business and buy directly from a craftsman working in his chosen trade. Here is what customers have to say about Stephen’s work:

"The first piece that came in the door today was the blanket chest & I was speechless. Every piece is perfect in every way & I can tell the wood was hand selected piece by piece. Thank you so very much for a truly positive experience. Stephen you are a superior craftsman! I hope you continue to make furniture for many years to come, because this is certainly not our last purchase."
-- Debra & Scott Lindell

"I am enjoying my new furniture very much. My husband was sitting in the porch swing looking through the living room window and he said that it looks so comfortable and beautiful that it just invites you to come in and relax. My son, the future furniture maker, got down on the floor and inspected every inch of it. He repeated that he was to get any furniture that came from you when I die!"
-- D. Pattillo

"Now that four years have passed, we are even happier! The cherry has seasoned nicely, and the furniture is the focal point of our house. What's amazing to us is that the swelling/shrinking of the wood has been minimal to nonexistent. In the hutch, every single door and drawer opens and closes just a smoothly and evenly as when you first crafted it for us."
-- V. White

"The sofa table is perfect—and beautiful. Your work is so fine, the graining of the wood so well chosen, it is easy to call you an artist as well as a craftsman - we both love your work."
-- E.R. & D.A.

"We were thrilled to receive our Arch Panel Bed and Dresser. Beyond being two very useful & needed pieces of furniture, they are beautiful pieces of art. When we lived in Washington DC, we saw a sensational exhibit of the finest in Shaker furniture at the Smithsonian. The pieces we now own could easily have taken their place in the exhibit."
-- S.R. & J.T.
