In 1754 a book was published in London and called “The Gentleman and Cabinet-Maker’s Director” where cabinet maker Thomas Chippendale was by far some of the best designs listed. Chippendale’s designs fall into three main styles: Gothic, Rococo, and Chinese. Thomas Chippendale blended all these style elements into unified designs. The term “chippendale” refers to English furniture of the 1750s and ’60s with a particular Rococo edge. Today chippendale chairs have gained popularity again, often seen in bright painted colors for whimsical and modern looks.
