This elegant stool bears many of the hallmarks of Thomas Hope.

Thomas Hope (1769–1831) was influential as a designer, design reformer and collector. A Dutchman, born in Amsterdam, Hope inherited from his family a tradition of collecting as well as vast wealth from the family bank. He was a collector on a grand scale and also an innovative designer who helped define what we understand as the Regency Period of design.
