The principles of honesty, utility and simplicity guided the Shakers and manifested in their craftsmanship. They rejected ornamentation as it encouraged the sin of pride. Instead, the Shaker furniture makers played with form, proportions, and asymmetry to add visual interest. Though the Shaker communities were largely self-sufficient and closed off from the mainstream world, they did sell excess goods and furniture pieces beyond their community. Fortunately, the style and historical pieces have been preserved and even reinterpreted today. — Quelcy
Occasionally I need to look for the lyrics or chords of some rather elderly rock or pop song, and Google searches so often ended me up on some really annoying sites. You are made to really jump through hoops to get to anything - having to sign up etc, or be deluged by endless pop-ups about ring-tones or other junk, or even in some cases to find the site did not even have any lyrics or chords at all - life is too short to waste time with that stuff. So although rock and pop are not the normal fare of this site I hope this collection may save other searchers for older pop and rock lyrics and chords some of the frustrations I had.
One thing these kitchens don't have in common with the average 1920s kitchen is the color palette. By the end of the decade, bright colors were actually quite popular for the kitchen, as seen in this 1929 kitchen from Antique Home Style . The English kitchens of today have a much more somber palette, reflecting the more muted colors that are currently popular in every part of the home. Another not quite similarity is the sink. The farmhouse style, although conspicuously old-fashioned, is still a far cry from the freestanding sinks of yesteryear. Perhaps those will make a comeback, too?
