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

Friday, 8th June - Saturday, 9th 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 on the website.

Priority will be given to members who apply for both study days. It will be possible for members to drive to both houses, although if there is need minibus transport will be arranged between the two venues, and a number of rooms at the Macdonald Cadrona hotel in Peebles has been booked for the night of Friday 8th June for those who require accommodation. Please register your interest with the Events Secretary. An application form, including final costs, will then be sent to you in due course. Travel and accommodation will be charged separately from the fee for the study days.

Contact events@furniturehistorysociety.org to register interest.
