HISTORICAL BACKGROUND
Of all the names associated with antique furniture, Chippendale is the most well known.
 
The Chippendale style dominated American furniture until the 1770s. It takes its name from Thomas Chippendale, an 18th century cabinetmaker, whose furnishings reflected popular English tastes of the period incorporating English, Gothic, and Chinese motifs.
