Chippendale furniture
Thomas Chippendale was one a principal furniture maker of the George III period. In Georgian England, his designs were so popular that ‘Chippendale’ became a style in its own right. He published his ‘Gentleman and Cabinet Maker’s Director’ in 1754, and the desire for Chippendale furniture was so great that there were several later editions in the 1760s. Chippendale furniture broadly fell into 3 categories: rococo, gothic and chinoiserie, and the Chippendale style became widely replicated by craftsmen and craftswomen across Georgian England.
