LMI Secures New Deal for Highclere Castle
LMI are delighted to announce a new license agreement between Highclere Enterprises LLP and Gascoigne Designs Upholstery Manufacturing Ltd.
Highclere Castle has been the home of the Earls and Countesses of Carnarvon since the late 17th century, and is still cherished by the present Lord and Lady Carnarvon as a family home. It is one of the most beautiful Victorian Castles in the world, set amidst spectacular parkland and is full of possessions, furnishings and architectural features and fixtures accumulated over more than 300 years.
Gascoigne Designs are developing a range of reproduction furniture based on key pieces found within the Castle and also a range of originally designed “inspired by” furniture to encapsulate the unique styles, periods and architectural elements of the building.
This licensing initiative is being actively supported by Lord and Lady Carnarvon and they released this statement about the new signing;
“Lord & Lady Carnarvon are delighted to be associated with Gascoigne Designs who have a strong reputation in the design of high quality upholstered furniture in the UK. The Carnarvon family have a long tradition of filling Highclere Castle with beautifully designed but very comfortable and long wearing furniture that makes the large house a home. Gascoigne will be taking the ideas and “Highclere Style” into new ranges based upon the feel of the rooms so familiar to the many fans of the Downton Abbey TV series filmed at Highclere Castle.”
Lady Carnarvon who aside from being the current “chatelaine” of the house is also a bestselling author and a true expert on the history of the house, its possessions and its inhabitants.
