George Hepplewhite, (died 1786, London) was an English cabinetmaker and furniture designer whose name is associated with a graceful style of Neoclassicism. He was apprenticed to the great English furniture maker Robert Gillow of Lancaster, went to London, and opened a shop there on Redcross Street. Hepplewhite’s style and reputation rest on his Cabinet-Maker and Upholsterer’s Guide (1788), which contained nearly 300 designs for furniture and other furnishings. Simplicity, elegance, and utility characterize the designs in the Guide. Chairs with straight tapered legs have shield-, heart-, and oval-shaped backs, incorporating urns, festoons, cornhusk chains, and other typical Neoclassical motifs.
