Althorp Living History

Located in Nottinghamshire, England, the Althorp House is the ancestral home of the Spencer family, and the childhood home of Charles, 9th Earl Spencer and his sister Diana. Theodore Alexander was so inspired by the history and distinctly English character of this home, that it created a ravishing assortment of furniture in this spirit - the Althorp Collection by Theodore Alexander.

An industry leader known for its original designs, diversity of product, and innovative use of materials, Theodore Alexander is a top manufacturer of fine reproductions of 18th and 19th century furniture. With the Althorp Collection, it has uncannily evoked a world of billiard rooms, high teas, and fox hunts.

Althorp is characterized by specific detailing of the location and its history, including:

  • Wood that is selected by its craftsmen based on beauty, color, and suitability
  • Hand-applied upholstery made of the finest materials, to ensure the highest standards in comfort, longevity, and style
  • Contrasting brass accents

Each item is a continuation of the theme. The collection includes items such as mahogany and flame veneered sideboards with a fine brass gallery back, mahogany and parcel gilt four poster beds with spiral turned baluster columns, and even a life-sized verdigris brass of ‘Forager,’ Lord Spencer’s favorite foxhound on a solid mahogany base.

The collection provides reproductions of pieces from Althorp House, including every piece needed for a gracious home:

  • Beds
  • Chests of drawers
  • Free standing pieces
  • Seating
  • Tables
  • Wall decor
  • Cabinetry
  • Desks

The Althorp Collection is replete with classic English features, but avoids the dusty cliches in favor of vibrant colors, refreshed fabric patterns, and current manufacturing technologies. Indeed, this collection is spot on.
