Chippendale Chat: The Influence of Thomas Chippendale on Today’s Furniture
First Floor, Design Centre East

Thomas Chippendales reputation as the most famous English furniture designer of all time is all down to his pattern book, The Gentleman and Cabinet-Makers Director. Tim Gosling and Daniel Hopwood discuss his influence on the contemporary design, the historic detail of his furniture and how he was ahead of his time.
This was a fantastic collaboration between CWA and furniture master, Tim Gosling. What a gentleman he is with great style and a wonderful sketching hand. I visited his London studio and mentioned to him my desire to explore a modern peacock room. I made the cabinet and he fitted the interior with peacock colored straw marquetry and lacquer- touches of gold along the leading edge of the glass. It’s a thrill to open this cabinet to find a jewel of an interior. You then celebrate in your delight with a cocktail. Cheers Tim!
