The National Trust's Attingham Park is an 18th-century mansion and estate located in Shropshire. Attingham Re-discovered began as a long term programme of improvements to the mansion’s interiors to refresh the way that Attingham’s Regency rooms were displayed. this was done in order to reveal and enhance the significance of the place, its fabric, contents and human stories and involved the conservation, restoration and re-creation of the mansion’s historic decorative schemes and collections.
We are proud to manage one of the world's largest commercial design archives and historical pattern libraries in the industry and the National Trust called on us to help with this very special project. Our archivist, Yvonne, worked closely with the project curator to identify carpet designs for the Octagonal room which, were authentic to the Regency period. Designs were chosen from Brintons extensive archive, and then woven specifically for this project.
The National Trust held a Summer Party to celebrate and showcase 10 years of ground-breaking, top quality, award-winning conservation work at Attingham Park, Shropshire. Yvonne was invited to the celebrations at Attingham Park and is pictured with Sarah Kay in their beautiful walled garden.
