Matching Patron and Maker: Celebrating 300 years of Chippendale

The Master Carvers’ Association is pleased to present ‘Matching Patron & Maker’ – a new exhibition celebrating the life, work and lasting legacy of Thomas Chippendale, Britain’s foremost furniture designer and maker.

Chippendale was born on the 5th of June 1718, and this year his tercentenary is being celebrated around the country. Since establishing his famous Covent Garden workshop in the 1750s, his exceptional work continues to shape the identity of craft and design in the capital and beyond.

A suite of seven music stands have been masterfully designed, carved and made for the exhibition and will be put to use for recital performances on selected evenings during the London Festival of Architecture 2018
