Later this month, Houston’s Museum of Fine Arts will display the Dundas Sofa—a rare piece of furniture designed by architect Robert Adam and Thomas Chippendale. The eighteenth century sofa, which was created for the Scottish businessman Sir Lawrence Dundas, will anchor the exhibition Grand Designs: Neoclassical Taste in the 18th Century. The show will explore the history and conservation of the sofa, while presenting other furniture, decorative objects, and prints from the era.
