Victoria and Albert Museum

The world’s greatest museum of art and design

From Thomas Chippendale’s grand 18th-century designs, to a chair used at Charles II’s coronation and Peter Ghyczy’s futuristic Garden Egg, the V&A’s collection of chairs covers a huge variety of design styles and manufacturing techniques. Many of these can be explored in the Dr Susan Weber Furniture Gallery.

A gift in your will

You may not have thought of including a gift to a museum in your will, but the V&A is a charity and legacies form an important source of funding for our work. It is not just the great collectors and the wealthy who leave legacies to the V&A. Legacies of all sizes, large and small, make a real difference to what we can do and your support can help ensure that future generations enjoy the V&A as much as you have.
