    Spotted this month on the website of Veranda magazine, the Gillows Stool by Theodore Alexander taking centre stage in a bathroom by interior designer Carolyne Roehm.

    Handcrafted in mahogany in the manner of Gillows of Lancaster, the original dates from around 1760 but, as we can see above, it is a design that will never date.

      Oudh in LA – a Traditional Lamp by Theodore Alexander

      Backlit against the morning sun in Los Angeles sits Theodore Alexander’s Oudh Lamp.  This bone and brass mounted table lamp is inspired by a nineteenth century Indian design. Simple without being staid, the soft cream colours of Oudh blend perfectly with its surroundings.

        Spotted in Vogue Living – The Sylvan Table

        Reading the May / June 2014 issue of Vogue Living we were delighted to see Theodore Alexander’s Sylvan table beautifully styled with an indigo circular rug and a dramatic still life in the background.

        Sylvan - an antiqued wood circular extending dining table, the circular top of parquetry panels with six pull-out sections revealing self-storing fold-out leaves, above four baluster turned supports, on a scroll hand carved pedestal. The original 17th century English.

          The Strangler Vine at Althorp

          This June Theodore Alexander will sponsor M. J. Carter in conversation with Charles Spencer at the Althorp Literary Festival.

          M. J. Carter, former journalist and the author of two highly acclaimed works of non-fiction (including Anthony Blunt: His Lives) will present her debut novel. The first in a series of historical adventures, The Strangler Vine is set in Calcutta in 1837 against the backdrop of a country governed by the British trading body, The East India Company.

          Painting a vivid picture of the history and culture of 19th century India, whilst establishing an exciting new fictional duo set to rival Holmes and Watson, The Strangler Vine is not to be missed. Tickets are available via the Althorp website.

            Proud as a Peacock

            We spotted one of our Althorp Living History pieces in a stunning Harper’s Bazaar editorial this month.

            Behind the model is the original Regency version of Theodore Alexander’s The Peacock Screen, a sumptuously hand painted and gilt faux bamboo piece of decorative furniture.
