Chippendale 300 Exhibition 'The Paxton Style: Neat & Substantially Good'
Exhibition
Berwick-upon-Tweed

To celebrate the tercentenary of Thomas Chippendale's birth, Chippendale 300 is a nationwide celebration of events inspired by the life, work and legacy of Thomas Chippendale, the most famous and influential furniture maker Britain has ever produced. Paxton House holds one of the world's largest collections of Chippendale furniture. Our Nationally Significant collection was awarded Recognition status by Museums Galleries Scotland, on behalf of the Scottish Government, in 2017. The Paxton Style: 'Neat & Substantially Good' was developed by Thomas Chippendale to suit the preferences of two of Paxton’s patrons; Patrick Home (1728 – 1808) and Ninian Home (1732 – 1795).

The collection combines relatively plain but innovative furniture forms with superb quality mahogany cuts and veneers. This personality was concisely defined by Ninian Home in a letter to Chippendale, written from Paxton in June 1789, in which he described what he wanted as ‘neat and substantially good’. The Paxton Style can be seen as a distinct family of furniture within Thomas Chippendale’s repertoire and is quite different from the productions of the elder Chippendale’s earlier career. It features restrained enrichment rather than ostentatious carving and gilding (which can be found in many other large stately homes around Scotland and England). The Paxton Style has enjoyed an enduring legacy that has influenced the design of mahogany furniture that followed. 

The exhibition itself is free of charge but you will need to buy a Paxton House Grounds pass which is £5 for adults 16 and over and free for children under 16.
