Reference: Household Furniture and Interior Decoration by Thomas Hope (1807)
Fig 93-1, plate XI, no.6
Published in 1807, this book introduced the term 'interior decoration' into the English language. Hope's designs subsequently appeared in many trade journals and books thereafter on interior design, his influence continuing long after his death through the far reaching impact of the publication.
Thomas Hope's pieces were designed with great influences from the Egyptian and Greek style. Hope's far reaching travels across the world on his grand tour from Europe to Turkey and Egypt sparked his interest in antiquities as an inspiration for his furniture designs and regency interiors. Hope's style influenced the regency revival of the 1920s, 30s and even art deco design.
