I've always found it ironic that our Country was started by people who hated the English monarchy so much they were willing to flee halfway around the world to escape it - and yet - to this day we are in explicitly drawn to anything British. From the Will, Kate and baby George to One Direction to Downton Abbey, we Americans are cray-cray for that accent, culture and way of life. Pip, pip and cheerio!
Also taking note of our British obsession is Kathy Adams Furniture + Design who is introducing a grand partnership with the Althorp Collection by Theodore Alexander during “Downton to a Tea,” a special day-long event with a distinct British accent. The festivities start at 11 a.m. on Saturday, January 25, 2014, as Kathy Adams Furniture + Design celebrates all things British with an impressive lineup of British partners. Kathy Adams Furniture + Design established the partnership with the Althorp Collection because of its rich history, fine craftsmanship and international reputation of the personal antiques of Charles Spencer, the 9 Earl of Spencer and younger brother of the late Princess Diana. Each of the pieces of furniture and upholstery are based on antiques from the family’s sprawling home in Althorp, England, and Kathy Adams Furniture + Design has partnered with the collection, which will be on display and available for purchase at Kathy Adams’ 23,000-square-foot showroom beginning January 25, 2014.
Upon arrival, guests will walk past British automobile imports courtesy of Park Place's Premier Collection. Once inside, enjoy a historical, designer fashion presentation by Texas Fashion Collection at University of North Texas (ever wonder what Martha Levinson or the Crawley daughters would have worn?) Holland & Holland at deBoulle will be on site to display why they have become the Royal Family Gunsmith. The Dalmore will be on site for a scotch whiskey tasting and Maudee's Tea Room will provide scones, clotted cream, tea sandwiches & more. And no British homage would be complete without TEA! Cavallini Teas will discuss the history of tea and offer various British teas to sample.
Family owned for over 23 years, Kathy Adams Furniture + Design has developed amazing partnerships with national and international brands like the Althorp Collection in order to provide their customers with forever furniture and timeless design. Kathy Adams remains involved with in the day-to-day operation of the store while daughter Kristy Adams heads up the buying and merchandising.
