Thomas Chippendale (1718-1789), is arguably the most famous of English furniture makers. From humble beginnings in Yorkshire he moved to London and exploited the prevailing fashion for the Rococo from his St Martins Lane establishment and published his Gentleman and Cabinet Makers Director in 1754.
