SPRING STUDY TRIP - DUMFRIES HOUSE, AYRSHIRE & PAXTON HOUSE, BERWICKSHIRE

Friday, 8 June - Saturday, 9 June 2018

Continuing the Chippendale theme, the Society is arranging back-to-back study days at two Scottish houses that reflect contrasting aspects of the work of Thomas Chippendale. Dumfries House contains the only collection of Chippendale furniture that reflects the full rococo style depicted in the engraved plates of the Director (the furniture supplied between 1759 and 1766), while Paxton was furnished in the neo-classical taste between 1774 and 1791.  Full details will be available in the February 2018 newsletter and on the website.
