The Metamorphic Furniture of Morgan and Sanders
At the start of the 19th century, there was a relatively short fascination with metamorphic furniture, in which the piece appears to have a single function but converts to another appearance and use with elegant ease. Patents for this kind of furniture peaked in the late 18th century and designs became more refined with the alternative function of the piece more cleverly concealed. The mechanical nature and incorporation of specialized hardware of the easily collapsible and transportable Army Navy equipage (campaign furniture), which became so popular in the latter decades of the 18th century, was the natural predecessor of metamorphic furniture. The pinnacle of metamorphic furniture production occurred for about a decade after 1805 in London.
