Pleasant Hill

The Real Shaker Kitchen

Between the 18th and the 19th Centuries the ‘Shaking Quakers’, better known as Shakers, conceived and perfected a concept which today sets the standard for furniture production, where each individual piece is simple and reproducible, but at the same time impeccable in every way: a harmonious balance between elegance and functionality.

Shaker kitchens, whose principle characteristic is simplicity of forms, have some essentials ‘musts’, like the peg rail, pillow-fronted drawers and crafted wooden door-knobs. Pleasant Hill is no exception, and these traits make it a timeless compliment to any home, from the modern urban loft to the most refined family country house.

Our range of models is deliberately small, to help us in our quest for perfection. But at the same time many variations are possible by personalising cornices, colours, knobs and compositions. This guarantees a standard of quality which would be impossible to obtain by simply following the fashions of the moment. Just like the Shakers, we also believe that less is better!
