Chippendale Furniture: A Classic of English Design
Chippendale furniture is one of the most iconic and influential styles of furniture in the history of design. It was named after Thomas Chippendale, a London cabinetmaker who published a book of his designs in 1754 called The Gentleman and Cabinet-Maker’s Director. Chippendale furniture is characterized by graceful curves, elaborate carvings, rich mahogany wood and refined proportions. It combines elements from various sources, such as Rococo, Gothic, Chinese and Neoclassical. Whether you are looking for a dining table, a chest of drawers, a chair or a mirror, you will find it in the Chippendale style. At M.S. Rau, we offer a curated selection of Chippendale furniture for sale, including antique, vintage and reproduction pieces. You can shop for them at our online shop or our gallery in New Orleans.
Chippendale furniture reflects the taste and culture of 18th century England. It was made for the wealthy and sophisticated clientele who wanted to display their status and elegance. It was also influenced by the discoveries and innovations of the time, such as new trade routes with Asia, new scientific discoveries and new artistic movements. Chippendale furniture showcases the craftsmanship and skill of the cabinetmakers who created it, using traditional techniques such as dovetailing, mortise and tenon joints and veneering. It also reveals the beauty and quality of the materials used, such as mahogany, walnut, satinwood and brass.
