Wilkinson’s supplied one of their Thornham Hall style Georgian chandeliers to the highly acclaimed Interior design company Maine Design of Los Angeles in California.
The chandelier is a reproduction of one of the earliest surviving examples of an English Georgian lead crystal chandelier made for Thornham Hall in Suffolk in 1732, this particular version included 10 lights with plain scrolled arms with pans and hand cut lead crystal baluster stem pieces.
The chandelier appeared in a 12 page spread in the American House Beautiful magazine in the December 2011 – January 2012 issue. The article featured a Newport Beach dining room, in which the chandelier was suspended above an English mahogany table surrounded by chi noise chairs and decorative wall panels. The blend of traditional and exotic in ‘The New Global’ article expressed that there is no cultural divide when it comes to design.
