Let Downton Abbey invade your home in more ways than one with the latest design trends inspired by the hit series.

Pictured above, top row, from left:

Lady Edith and The Dowager Countess have a little chat in a set of tufted chairs.



Layer on sumptuous colors and textiles Downton style with this Afsanna Decorative Pillow from Anichini’s “Rare Collection”.



Mr. Carson may not be pouring your morning coffee, but you can still feel like a count or countess when it’s served from this Estate Victorian Silver Plated Coffeepot.



Bob Christian’s faux bois table is perfect for taking tea, or adding a custom element to any room.



These versatile tufted chairs are perfect for everywhere from in front of the fireplace, or in a bedroom, to the drawing room for an intimate chat like the one Lady Edith and the Dowager Countess are having above.


Who needs an Old Master when the fabulous Bob Christian can create Downton-worthy works of art like this Birds, Blue and White Bowls Painting. 


Every British country house has an element of chinoiserie and you should too! This hand painted table is a great place to start.
