Quick Reference

The style of furniture popular at the end of the 18th century associated with Thomas Sheraton (1751–1806), designer and author of several volumes, including The Cabinet Maker and Upholsterer's Drawing Book (1791–4). No pieces of furniture can be directly attributed to him, but he gave his name to the elegant style of this period. Pieces were simple in outline, usually made of satinwood and often decorated with contrasting veneers, showing the high quality of the wood. Delicate inlaid decoration was inspired by the antique, which ensured Sheraton-style furniture combined well with Robert Adam's Neoclassical interiors.
