Thomas Chippendale and His Contemporaries: 300 Years of Design

In celebration of Thomas Chippendale’s 300th birthday the New York Design Center presents: Thomas Chippendale and His Contemporaries: 300 Years of Design.  When Thomas Chippendale created “The Gentleman and Cabinet Maker’s Director” in 1754 he could not have imagined the influence his work would have over the next 300 years.   With this exhibition, on view until June 1, we celebrate his contributions to the design world.  Special thanks to Michael Pashby Antiques for curating and supplying the exhibition with impressive period pieces, and to Clinton Howell Antiques for supplementing the collection.
