Part Two: What is in a Name?...
October 10, 2018, posted by tsexton
His name is synonymous with design, art, style and the influence thereof. He never owned a storefront on Park Avenue or Rodeo Drive. His designs continue to impact the designers and architects of today and will continue to do so in the future.
You could call him "Britain's First Interior Designer," "The Shakespeare of English Furniture," "a published author and designer"... OR you could simply call him by his last name, which has traveled farther than he could ever have imagined. It has been carried around globe and into palaces, businesses, museums and countless homes. Perhaps, even your home.
His name is Chippendale. Thomas Chippendale, and this year is the 300th Anniversary of the celebration of his birth in Otley, England.
We at Pickwick Antiques will be celebrating Mr. Chippendale's 300th birthday through January 2019.
Look to our Blog, Instagram, Facebook and Website for updates and a final in-store celebration.
As Always... Design is in the Details
