The Annual Frederick Parker Lectures

The Fredrick Parker Collection is held in our Special Collections, and is a unique resource covering over 300 years of British Furniture making and design, from 1600 to the present day. The Collection consists of over 200 chairs, together with an archive of related historical documents and artifacts and became part of the Furniture Makers’ Company in 2013. The collection is owned by the Worshipful Company of Furniture Makers (now known as The Furniture Makers) one of the livery companies of the City of London, and has been on long-term loan to London Metropolitan University since 2002.
