Object detail

Credit line
Made in England about 1860, this chaise lounge belonged to Captain Henry King who lived at Brooklands. Although his house burnt down during the First Taranaki War in 1861, the brick fireplace can still be seen in Pukekura Park. The design of this chaise lounge is an example of the growing popularity for rococo period furniture in England. Captain King’s chaise lounge would be very similar to furniture that the Richmond family owned and used in this cottage.
