Fashionable Front Hall
Ahhh, the early 20th century: a time of elegance, luxury, and gracious living—at least for the upper class. Nobility such as the Earl and Countess of Grantham would have paid great attention to the grandeur of their homes’ great halls to give visitors a preview of just how splendid other rooms would be. This gracious entry hall exhibits that same spirit with its antique carved mahogany console table, antique Charles X chandelier, and carved George III-style mahogany mirror. The only thing missing is Lady Mary checking her hat in the mirror before setting out for a stroll with Matthew.
