Surreal desk with restrained elegance
Nothing embodies the English Regency furniture more than Thomas Chippendale. Bringing the lion claw from the orient into mainstream English, the Chippendale style is sometimes eccentric, but always imposing. Chippendale embodies Early Georgian, Queen Anne and late baroque, so it's no wonder that it caught the fancy of curators around the world and Thomas Chippendale became avant-garde and his pieces are still sought after by the true collectors.
Chippendale's dominance can be understood by the fact that his book - "The Gentleman & Cabinet-maker's Director" is still used as an authority in understanding neo-baroque furniture and applied arts.
This Chippendale desk features a sculptural lion head surrounded by foliage.
