Door Panel Style Gallery

Paneled doors, also called stile and rail doors or 5-piece doors, evolved from transitional doors that were built during the Renaissance era. Wood has a natural tendency to shrink and expand. Panel door construction overcomes any issues that this would cause as the panel is allowed to move within the stable stile and rails of the frame. Paneled doors require much skill to build. Amish woodworkers have perfected and passed this skill down through generations.

Amish furniture is often associated with the American Craftsman movement. During this time many artisans protested mass production by returning to more traditional American designs.

Mission-style is characterized by its straight angles and simple horizontal and vertical lines. It's a clean style that works well with a variety of decor. Traditional Mission-style furniture is stained to accentuate the grain in the wood and the hardware is usually black simple pulls or knobs.

The Shakers were a radical religious sect who broke away from English Quakers in the 1770s. Upon coming to America, they settled into small communities dedicated to the principles of simplicity and humility, which was reflected in the furniture that they made. They viewed any type of ornamentation to be sinful.
