The settee, serpentined with triclinium-scrolled arms and sculpted with bubbled embossments amongst 'Roman' foliage, relates to a 'French Stool' pattern in Messrs Ince and Mayhew's Universal System of Household Furniture, 1762 (pl. 61). A library armchair en suite with the settee covered in floral needlework is illustrated in F. L. Hinckley, Masterpieces of Queen Anne and Georgian Furniture, New York, 1991, pl. 52, fig. 98. The pattern corresponds closely to the celebrated suite, upholstered in Apollo-patterned needlework derived from Robert Wood's 1753 publication, The Ruins of Palmyra, and supplied for the Drawing Room that the architect James Paine had designed at Cusworth Hall, Yorkshire. Another comparable side chair covered in Fulham tapestry is illustrated in C. Claxton Stevens and S. Whittington, 18th Century English Furniture: The Norman Adams Collection, Woodbridge, Suffolk, 1983, p. 44 and color pl.4.
