George Hepplewhite, along with Thomas Sheraton and Thomas Chippendale, is considered one of ‘big three’ furniture makers in the UK. Though the dates are not quite clear, Hepplewhite became a cabinetmaker of great renown and ran a shop in London. In 1788, two years after Hepplewhite’s death, his wife Alice Heppelwhite published a book with over 300 of his designs. There aren’t many original Hepplewhite furniture pieces existing today, but the book of designs inspired many generations of furniture designers, just like those designs by his contemporary, Thomas Chippendale. Even today, design lovers claim (and we agree!) that Hepplewhite furniture adds serious splendor to a room. The slender and curvilinear shape of Hepplewhite designs are easily spotted. Grab a few Hepplewhite chairs for the dining room and entertain in style. If you want to go all out and create a dining experience fit for kings, a Hepplewhite dining table or sideboard are must buys. If you are looking to integrate smaller elements of Hepplewhite furniture, place a couple of gorgeous Hepplewhite side chairs in a living room to add seating and a dash of elegance. Yes, it is that easy with Hepplewhite—the iconic shield-shape chair backs have us swooning. Looking to add an ultra-glam yet feminine accent piece to this mix?
