Peg-Rail or “Shaker-Rail” as some call it, was developed & designed by the Shakers early in our Country’s history.  In their quest for simplified perfection, the Shaker’s created an architectural element as beautiful as it is useful for storing or hanging just about anything in use in their day.  A communal society that lived together in large numbers in common dwellings, closets were few & Shaker Peg Rail was abundant.  A typical Shaker village is said to have had over 10,000 pegs in use.  Chairs were hung on Peg-Rail to get them off the floor for easier cleaning, sometimes they were hung upside down to allow passage walking under them.  Peg Rail was hung at many heights on a wall and even under window sills.

In addition to hanging chairs and other items such as brooms & whisks,  the Shakers created an array of clever pieces that could also be hung on this Peg Rail, and be moved from room to room as needed.  Hanging Shelves, Small Storage Cabinets, Clocks, Wooden Garment Hangars, Stocking-Stretchers and even Candle Sconces that could be raised and lowered to vary lighting were all expertly crafted and used on a daily basis.

Peg-Rail can be hung anywhere in a home or office.  From a short length attached to the back of a door to an entire room.  It is usually located 4″- 5″ down from the top edge of any door casings.  It is very easy to install and can be painted or stained to fit your decor
