designer loves art....Jonh Linnell...140

in furniture design who can we pair up as the competition to  Chippendale?

this is John Linnell

born in England, he was one of the first English furniture maker that was educated in design at St. Martin's Academy. he joined his father's firm in furniture making and over took the business when his father passed away.  his career began designing in the rococo-style,  but then embraced neoclassic style  I believe this shows that he was young and was able to adapt quickly with the demand from the customer.  something that i noticed in his drawings is that his pieces are not symmetrical. it is believed that it was to show the customer 2 different possibilities in one drawing.
