Thomas Chippendale (1718-1778) was born in Otley, West Yorkshire. Chippendale was a furniture maker particularly famous for some of his rococo-style designs. A blue plaque and statue have been put up on this building at the end of Bridge Street Otley (The town's Prince Henry's Grammar School, which was founded by Royal Charter in 1607 later moved from this town centre site - now the offices of David R. Bamford Chartered Architects).


In 1754 Thomas Chippendale published a book called "The Gentleman and Cabinet-maker's Director". Thomas' son (also called Thomas) continued his father's work. Some original examples of Chippendale furniture can be seen at Harewood House and Temple Newsam (two large country houses near Leeds).

You can learn more about the life of Thomas Chippendale at Otley Museum. The Museum also contains an early example of a Wharfedale Printing Machine, a new type of printing press (invented in Otley in the mid-19th century) which revolutionised the printing industry.
