Downton Abbey has become one of the country’s most staggeringly successful programmes of recent years, quickly establishing itself as a flagship title of ITV. The meticulously designed show has been praised for its attention to detail, in terms of props and locations, and it seems people can’t get enough of the vintage style on display.
Grand, classical, traditional, ornate; all keywords when describing the aesthetic appeal of Downton. They are also, coincidentally, keywords which you can find throughout The Orchard’s products!
Recently concluding its third series, Downton Abbey has been snapped up and televised in over 100 countries across the world since its inception just over two years ago. Nominations and awards have quickly followed, pocketing Emmys and Golden Globes (amongst many others), as well as Bafta Craft Awards for sound and directing. The first season even broke a Guinness World Record for the most critically well-received show in the world. Hordes of fans ensure viewing figures gravitate around the 9m mark, cementing the widespread popularity of everything classically vintage.
All of which led us to thinking…a hugely popular programme which features furniture, interiors and trends similar to those of The Orchard – let’s see if we can show how we can help our customers create their own little slice of Downton! A dash of baroque styling, a splash of antique white paint, a flourish of vintage; whether its transforming an entire room, or a subtle addition to a space, we have plenty of options for you. Downton Abbey is off our screens until Christmas, but hopefully we can help you fill the void until its return.
And don’t just take our word for it! We recently had two of our products featured in The Times as part of their Downton Abbey inspired ‘Bricks & Mortar’ section…
Downton Abbey’s return cannot come soon enough for us here at The Orchard. Be sure to check out all of the photos in the blog on our Pinterest profile too!
