If you are like so many of us, you are hooked and waiting for Sunday night’s new episode of Downton Abbey. We're watching too and not only is the show being widely viewed, but it is influencing our customer's tastes in furniture. The series takes place at the turn of the century and centers on life in an English Mansion. The set of Downton Abbey is full of gorgeous classic furniture pieces. Beautiful accent chairs, ornate dining rooms, elaborate libraries, and elegant bedrooms are just some of the backgrounds shown each week. The show’s photography is simply amazing and it is helping to bring some of our much loved classic furniture collections back into fashion. Seeing the inner workings of this British mansion from the eyes of the wealthy, as well as the eyes of the "help" who take care of them, makes for a unique double story line. The furnishings take center stage as the servants meticulously clean and maintain each room in the mansion. From preparing elaborate dinners to fluffing pillows in the library and cleaning fireplaces; the beautiful furnishings in this television series are difficult to miss.
At Belfort Furniture, we can help you bring a bit of that old English style, like Downton Abbey, to your house today. We have beautiful, classic furniture collections to create that timeless look in your home. Keep in mind, classic pieces integrate well even with modern furniture to create a more eclectic feel.
