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 .
