The Hitchcock chair – 1850 – 1865
Born in the long and prosperous Victorian era, the Hitchcock chair is the pioneering effort of Lambert Hitchcock who ushered in the dominance of inexpensive mass-produced furniture. These chairs aroused out of the need to cater to an ever-growing demand among many people for whom living was elegant and leisurely; years when fortunes were being made in America and when industries were being developed. These were fashioned minimally with a bare amount of elegant lines and hand-worked details.
