Downton Abbey Decor

When the new season of PBS’s Downton Abbey finally premiered, we couldn’t help but notice the stunning similarities between the set and our current line of decorative hardware products. Check out the gallery below to see exactly what we mean.

The Jewels:

One of the first things you’ll notice is the glamorous diamonds and tiaras of Downton Abbey’s leading characters. It may be a bit cliché to say that hardware is like jewelry for the home, but based on these sparkling chandeliers and crystal knobs, it clearly rings true.

Lady Mary Crawley:

Perhaps the most glamorous of them all, Lady Mary Crawley and her ultra elegant accessories are rife with eye-catching detail. Although you might not want to wear our hand-finished knobs and pulls, these pieces are so beautiful you just might be tempted.

The Home Décor:

While the grand country estate of Downton Abbey would be impossible to replicate without winning the lottery, our reproduction hardware pieces can do wonders for capturing the abbey’s Neo-Gothic splendor in your own home.

The Drawing Room:

One of our favorite rooms in the entire manor, the drawing room is a lovely example of the refined elegance of French inspired decorating – a style that we’ve proudly replicated in the classic collection below.

The Stairs:

Just because stairs are all about function doesn’t mean they can’t be a fine display of fashion. Just as the Downton Abbey staircase is a flagship piece of the home’s grand entrance, you too can add a touch of Edwardian elegance to your stairs with some of our favorite accessories.

The Downstairs & Kitchen:

As we’ve discovered within the series, not all of the action is happening upstairs. Although it may not be as extravagant as the upstairs décor, there is an undeniably charming look to the manor house kitchen below the stairs.
