Other than Robert Adam, Thomas Sheraton is probably the best known designer of the late 18th century. Sheraton published his first book of patterns in 1792. His designs show furniture that is much more slender in line than hitherto, and he led a return to the use of inlay; with this his name seems to be inseparably linked. Inlay often took the form of cross banding and stringing, and a common feature was an oval shell of satinwood scorched to imitate shading. After about 1800, square legs were replaced by turned ones with reeding.
