In the upcoming Property from Christa’s Ltd. auction, Hindman will present a selection of furniture items from the Georgian period. From a collection of Chippendale pieces to Regency-style furniture, the auction demonstrates the versatility of Georgian design. A highlight of the sale is a pair of Chippendale-style side chairs. Between the 1750s and 1760s, the Chippendale style dominated furniture design. This recognition helped mark Thomas Chippendale as one of the leading cabinetmakers of the 18th century.
A Regency chiffonier is also highlighted in this sale. Emerging near the end of the Georgian period, the Regency style is inspired by classical antiquity. Its popularity lasted only 9 years, from 1811 to 1820. Influenced by the Napoleonic Egyptian campaign in 1798, Regency furniture was mostly decorated with snakes, beetles, and other Egyptian motifs. The auction also presents a Modernist chest from the 20th century. This contemporary style especially highlights the simplicity of forms and materials.
