Chippendale

Named after British master carver and furniture designer Thomas Chippendale, this style emerged in the second half of the 18th Century. It is often thought of as Queen Anne dressed up with ornamentation such as shell carvings, intricate fretwork, piecrust edging, and other elements of rococo or Chinese design. The style flourished in the American cabinet-making centers of Boston, New York, Newport, and Philadelphia, with each center developing its own signature.

Newport helped popularize a uniquely American form: the block-front.
