As in George Hepplewhite the English furniture designer in the late 18th century who used satinwood, painted motifs, curvilinear forms and very slender proportions to create light, fragile, furniture. Many of his chairs had heart or spade shaped backs.

His furniture was so fragile that none of it survives, but we have an excellent record of it in his book: The Cabinet-maker and Upholster’s Guide it is one of the first books ever published with drawings of furniture designed for use by other designers and cabinetmakers. (It is also primary resources for theatrical designers, seeking information for period pieces.)

One extra note: pronounced "heplhwit"
