Designed by Robert Adam in 1758, Harewood House was one of Adam’s most impressive and complete houses, which allowed him the ability to completely design the exterior and interior of the house to his own specifications for Edward Lascelles, Earl of Harewood. It was completed in 1765 at which time he began to design the architectural embellishments of seventeen rooms, making this Adam’s largest commission. It is interesting to note that Adam did not make any furniture designs for the house, the entire commission going to Thomas Chippendale, whose furniture more than compliments the internal architecture and space (Eileen Harris, The Genius of Robert Adam, New Haven and London, 2001, p. 137) This furniture commission began in the 1770s and lasted until the death of the Earl in 1795.
