Downton History

Do you consider yourself an avid member of the Downton Abbey™ fan club? Downton Abbey™, for those of you unfamiliar, is a hit British period television show set in the post-Edwardian era. The story follows the lives of the aristocratic Crawley family in their fictional Yorkshire country estate of Downton Abbey. Throughout the series viewers have watched as modern (to the time) events have affected the family and their hard working staff.

Bring a bit of Downton magic into your home with themed accents inspired by this iconic time in British history. Downton Abbey™ Valance and Shower Curtain each feature a double ruffle accented by vertical stripes in iron and cream ticking stripes that will do wonders for your bathroom. Imagine the exclusive retreat you can create where luxurious baths are only interrupted by the occasional sip of quality British tea.

Violet's Wisdom Downton Abbey Pillow Fans and newcomers alike will appreciate the sentiment of Violet’s Wisdom Pillow, crafted of ultra soft polyester that looks and feels just like richly printed linen. According to Violet, the Dowager Countess of Grantham, “You’ll find there’s never a dull moment in this house.” True statement for any household.

Classically British, Union Jack Pillow features the title of the show running along the center band of this iconic red, white and blue flag. Wherever you choose to display these period inspired pieces, you can be sure that your friends, whether they are fans of Downton Abbey™ or not, will appreciate the stately welcome.

Fun fact: by the third series, Downton Abbey™ was one of the most watched shows in the world.
