Thomas Chippendale, 1718-1779

Thomas Chippendale, 1718-1779


A celebration of British craftmanship and design.

This exhibition explores the life, work and legacy of Thomas Chippendale. Born in Otley in 1718, he made his name in London with his exquisite designs and entrepreneurial spirit. His beautiful designs and quality of his workmanship made Chippendale one of the most sought-after furniture makers of the 1700s. From his humble roots he went on to work in some of the greatest and most fashionable houses in the country. The exhibition will explore how Chippendale rose to such prominence, celebrate the quality of his work and consider his legacy since his death in 1779.

The exhibition will include objects from his early life, alongside beautiful hand-drawn designs and some of the best examples of his work, many on public display for the first time.
