Tomas Chippendale (1718-1779) invented the England Chippendale style during the 1754-1779. He’s typical work of his design was his various styles of chair. The chair I have chosen which was his earlier style. The chair back was the rabband back design; the front legs were created by curved ball and dragon claw, and for the back legs were the late Chippendale legs. The chair was made in C. 1885, from the Pope Estate, and the material of this chair was mahogany. Mahogany was popular in the 18 century because of not only mahogany is stronger than walnut but also slight and easy to be curved. Eighteenth-century furniture was trained in the ”Arts and Mysteries of the Craft,” which most of the furniture were made precisely and aesthetically. Indeed, this chair was provided dimensions to be harmony; moreover, embellished with many curves to enhance its stylish.
