Named after pew chairs with a Chinese lattice design in the Cockpen Church, Cockpen, Midlothian, Scotland, Cockpen chairs were originally made for the aristocratic Dalhousie family, circa 1775. The master cabinet-maker Thomas Chippendale provided chairs of this form for Normanton Park, Rutland, and also Harewood House, West Yorkshire.
