Inigo Jones was not a famous furniture maker. Jones (b. July 1573 in Smithfield, London, England—died June 1652 in London) was a British painter, architect, and architectural designer who founded the English classical tradition of architecture. During the first half of the 17th century, he was responsible for introducing Italian Renaissance architecture into England.

Little is known of Jones's early life and education, but between 1596/1597 and 1605 he traveled to most of Europe and spent some years in Italy. In and around Venice and Vicenza, he observed buildings done by Andrea Palladio, one of the major architects of the late Renaissance. Theories and designs of Palladio had a profound effect on him.

During the same time period, Jones is believed to have worked for King Christian of Denmark. In 1609 Jones traveled in France and in 1613-1614 he went to Italy. During his Italian journeys, Jones undertook a professional study of Palladio's architecture and architectural theories.
