Catalog Record: The Cabinet-maker And Upholsterer’s
A Sheraton style chair with rectangular back No piece of furniture made by Thomas Sheraton has ever been identified, and doubts have even been expressed about whether he made any, but few furniture-makers signed their work in those days and he is regarded as the first person ever to have made his living by designing furniture. He evidently got a training as a cabinet-maker and draughtsman, and moved to London when he was about forty, living at various addresses near Grosvenor Square and in Soho as a designer and author, drawing teacher and devout Baptist minister. His master work The Cabinet Maker and Upholsterer’s Drawing-Book began coming out in fortnightly parts in 1791. He had been a cabinetmaker, and was now author, publisher, and teacher of drawing, and, I believe, occasional preacher. His first book on furniture was published in 1791 with the title of The Cabinet-Maker and Upholsterer’s Drawing Book. Thomas Sheraton 1751-1806, English designer of furniture and author.
