Thomas Chippendale: Britain's Most Celebrated Furniture Designer

Thomas Chippendale (1718 – 1779) was a London cabinet-maker and furniture designer in the mid-Georgian, English Rocco, and Neoclassical styles. In 1754 he published a book of his designs, The Gentleman and Cabinet Maker's Director. His superior designs were regarded as reflecting the current London fashion for furniture for that period and were widely copied by other cabinetmakers. The Diana and Minerva Commode, Harewood House. A detail of the Diana and Minerva Commode which, with its intricate ivory inlay, elegant lines and drawers that whisper shut is often referred to as Chippendale's greatest single work.
