During 2018 we are celebrating Thomas Chippendale and his legacy as widely as possible, both by encouraging greater public awareness of his genius and the glories of 18th century craftsmanship, and by demonstrating how the same spirit animates today’s designers and makers.

Message from HRH Prince Charles

'Chippendale was one of those rare individuals whose talents transcend both time and place; he not only achieved international renown in his own lifetime, but created an artistic legacy which endures to the present day. From his day to ours, 'Chippendale' has been a byword for excellence in design and manufacture.'
