American Decorative Arts Forum Lecture: "Dressing Philadelphia’s Finest Furniture: Upholstered, Covered, and Hung", by Alexandra Kirtley

19th-century chairs
September 9, 2014 - 7:30pm

Soon after their marriage in March 1805, Philadelphians William and Mary Willcocks Waln retained architect Benjamin Henry Latrobe (British, 1764–1820) to design and build a new mansion at the corner of Seventh and Chestnut Streets. After three years of construction, Latrobe also began to design the furniture and the painted wall ornament for the drawing room, the social center of the house. The drawing room furniture is all that is left of the house, which was razed in 1843, and it embodies the aspirations of its designer and the merchant who commissioned the furniture.
