Downton Abbey - Get the Look

Series 3 of Downton Abbey was released on DVD November 5th and if you’re a Downton fan like us, it’ll be number one on your Christmas list already!
Design Inspiration

This season we see the cast of Downton heading full throttle into the roaring 20s. Season 2 left us with so many unanswered questions; will Sybil and Branson return? Will Mary and Matthew finally get married after all this time? Will Bates and Anna get their happy ending? Who knows what drama will unfold this season - one thing we do know is that Downton is guaranteed to look as fabulous as ever.

Take a look at our Downton inspired furniture and get the look in your home…

Harlequin Isabelle sofa

We think Violet, Dowager Countess of Grantham would love the Harlequin Isabelle sofa – as it’s very similar to the red sofa in Downton’s sumptuous drawing room. Upholstered in luxurious red velvet, the beautiful curves and deep cushioning of the 3 seater Isabelle, make it a great statement piece for your home.

Harlequin Sophie footstool

Coordinate your Harlequin Isabelle with the Sophie footstool. Beautifully cushioned and with smart wooden castor legs, it’s perfect for putting your feet up on and letting the Butler do all the hard work! Upholstered in a range of different colours, our favourite is stunning red.

Handmade in the UK, you can find Duresta settees in stately homes across the country, thanks to their partnership with The National Trust. The Hamilton is designed in the ‘quintessentially English country house style’, and we wouldn’t be surprised if there was a Duresta sofa in Highclere Castle (the real Downton Abbey) already!

Elizabeth Lamp

The elegant Elizabeth lamp would look perfectly at home at Downton, with its beautiful glass base and traditional cream, pleated shade. We can imagine Lady Edith reading a letter beneath it.

Tavern side table

This Willis & Gambier Tavern side table is a superb choice for a traditionally decorated home. Built from Hevea rubber wood and Hickery veneers, this is an ideal place to keep your Elizabeth lamp.
