Chippendale Style Furniture
The Chippendale Style is made up of various styles of furniture that were fashionable in the second half of the 18th century. The style was named after the English cabinetmaker Thomas Chippendale and was the very first style of furniture in England named after a carpenter rather than a king. The Chippendale Style became the most famous name in the history of English furniture at a time when such craftsmanship was at its peak.
The actual term of Chippendale began to grow in use after the publishing of a book of furniture designs in 1754 called The Gentleman and Cabinet-Maker's Director. Many of the most popular designs in the book were from the cabinet maker Thomas Chippendale and the popularity of the book allowed the style to take on a life of its own that was distinct from the ruling monarch. Thus began the spread of the Chippendale style across the European continent and on into the Americas.
