In the Lap of Luxury - Downtown Abbey Inspired Decor

Abigail Sawyer | 17 Feb 2014 | Trends

Have you been spending your Sunday nights the way we have? Sure, the drama, glamour and complicated relationships of Downton Abbey keep us watching, but it’s the interiors that we absolutely adore.

Bring a bit of the upstairs-downstairs feel to your home with these  luxurious spaces. Interior designer Ann Ueno of House and Host has created upper class and lower class versions of this look (appropriately enough).

Ann scoured many of these one-of-a-kind antiques from One King’s Lane. Head over to the flash sale site to search for gems of your own. These corner chairs look like the perfect perch for a lady in a glamorous ball gown.

Both of these looks are paired with the Easy Drapes in Troika Cocoa. The halls of Downton are filled with voluminous, flowing curtains. These drapes will give you the luxurious look without all the bulk and are available in hundreds of patterns.

  1. One Kings Lane – Antique Portrait of a Lady
  2. Layla Grace – Regis English Bronze Chandelier
  3. – Easy Drapery Panel in Troika Cocoa
  4. One Kings Lane – English Rosewood Chaise
  5. One Kings Lane – English Corner Chair
  6. Zinc Door – Antique Brass/Mirror End Table
  7. One Kings Lane – Antique Persian Rug
  8. One Kings Lane – English Sideboard


This affordable version is much more accessible for a commoner – not all of us have an estate of our own, after all. These pieces are not only friendlier to the wallet, but give the classic shapes a modern twist.

The unique shape of the chairs is especially lovely. They stay loyal to the shaker heritage, but infuse contemporary clean lines.
