-Thomas Chippendale (1718–1779) was born in Otley in the West Riding of Yorkshire, England in June 1718.
-He became a cabinet-maker in London, designing furniture in the mid-Georgian, English Rococo, and Neoclassical styles.
-In 1754 he published a book of his designs, titled The Gentleman and Cabinet Maker's Director, upon which success he became renowned.
-The designs are regarded as representing the current British fashion for furniture of that period and are now reproduced globally.
-Chippendale was much more than just a cabinet maker, he was an interior designer who advised on other aspects of decor such as soft furnishings and even the colour a room should be painted.
-During the company's period of greatest success it could act like a modern interior designer working with other specialists and contract for the supply of fully decorated and furnished rooms or whole houses, once the principal construction was done.
