Hepplewhite Chairs

Named after London cabinetmaker George Hepplewhite 1768, whose The Cabinet Maker and Upholsterers Guide was published posthumously in 1788. Hepplewhite furniture dates from about 1780-1810, and is a neoclassic style and falls within the Federal period in the U.S. Hepplewhite’s style overlaps with British designer Thomas Sheraton. Older Hepplewhite style tends to be more ornate, with substantial carving and curvilinear shapes.
