Thomas Chippendale the Elder (1718-1779)

Yorkshire born, a highly skilled cabinet maker and designer, published in 1754 his 'Gentleman & Cabinet Maker's Director', a volume of instantly recognisable and idiosyncratic designs, that was reprinted time and again, serving as an essential manual for cabinet makers the length and breadth of England. Working from 60-62 St Martins Lane, London his output is regarded as the ne plus ultra of 18th century English cabinet making. His company furnished inter alia, Harewood House and Nostell Priory.

2018, the tercentenary of Chippendale's birth, occasioned exhibitions of his work all over Great Britain, and especially at Harewood House in Yorkshire, one of Chippendale's most notable projects, and 7 miles from his birthplace, a six month long exhibition was  held, to accomodate the thousands of visitors.
