Celebrating the Life and Work of Thomas Chippendale

Chippendale is the most magical name in fine furniture. The tercentenary of Thomas Chippendale’s birth is being celebrated on both sides of the Atlantic. His pieces stand out for their beauty and outstanding craftsmanship. Mies Van Der Rohe apparently said “a chair is a very difficult object. A skyscraper is almost easier. That is why Chippendale is famous”.
