Attingham Park, Shrewsbury.
An elegant 18th-century mansion set in an extensive deer park. Attingham Park was built for the 1st Lord Berwick in 1785 and was in continuous ownership by the family for more than 160 years. As their fortunes rose and fell they proved themselves to be spenders, savers and saviors.
Across the 640 acres of parkland there are numerous Grade I and Grade II listed buildings including the stable block and toll house, and of course Attingham Park itself.
Striped Taboret with moiré finish for window drapes.
Silk and linen striped taboret woven narrow and with moiré finish in cyclamen pink. The stripe layout and colour were taken from original house documents. The stripe dimensions match those at Belton House but are finer set than those at Nostell Priory. The moiré effect only takes on the plain structure and not on the satin weave, producing an ever changing reflective design. The original shade of pink was revealed in a tightly folded hem concealing the brightness of the original scheme.
