Pier table by Thomas Hope

Victoria & Albert Museum

As furniture makers we often look at iconic furniture pieces for inspiration and sometimes assistance with design issues prior to production.   This is a giltwood Pier table designed by Thomas Hope during the English Regency Revival period (circa 1800). Inspired by the Ancient Greek and Roman design, the table contains four carytids and above them are four medallions representing the gods of night and sleep.  The carytids, according to Hope, represent the four parts of the day.  The top is made out of a black marble slab.  Hope’s used symbolic ornaments in his pieces to influence designers, clients and other craftsmen.  Hope used giltwood in much of his furniture to contrast with the often colorful interior decoration of the time period.

Thomas Hope was an English collector and furniture designer whose designs were inspired by Greek, Roman and Egyptian styles. These illustrations are light, elegant chairs with broad curved top rails and distinctive concave saber legs that  curve outwards. This design was strongly influenced by the Ancient Greek Klismos chair.
Thomas Hope (1770-1831) created Greek Revival furniture and interior spaces that are illustrated in his book  Household Furniture and Interior Decoration. The Greek Revival Style often features painted furniture with motifs. These  Greek Revival chairs have been highly a popular style in new custom furniture design .
