Fine furniture manufacturer Theodore Alexander and Charles, 9th Earl Spencer and brother of Princess Diana will unveil the newest pieces in the Althorp Living History furniture collection at next month’s High Point Market, Oct 13-17.
The collection encapsulates reproductions from the Althorp Estate, the Spencer family’s ancestral home of nineteen generations of British nobility.
“The Althorp Living History Collection captures the extraordinary ancestry of 500 years of Spencer family tradition,” said Charles, 9th Earl Spencer. “Each piece brings to life generations of memories and embodies centuries of Britain’s most treasured craftsmanship.”
Hosted in the Theodore Alexander showroom, the Althorp Living History Collection event will showcase furniture and upholstery inspired by five centuries of British heritage. Guests will receive the first glimpse of masterpieces such as the Peacock Cabinet, Medallion Sideboard and Green Park Sofa that mirror the estate’s original antiques. In a featured presentation, Lord Spencer will reveal the history behind the collection’s signature items and offer an exclusive photo opportunity with guests.
“The Althorp Living History Collection stands as cornerstone at Theodore Alexander,” said Neill Robinson, president, Theodore Alexander. “With the collection’s exquisite attention to detail and impeccable historical design, we’re able to invite clients to create their own legacy through these inspiring pieces.”
After the unveiling, Theodore Alexander will host a dinner and silent auction supporting Whole Child International with special guests, Whole Child Founder Countess Spencer and Lord Spencer. Lady Spencer founded Whole Child International in 2004 with the aim of giving every child the opportunity to be properly cared for and loved. Research has proven that in as little as two years, children receiving the benefits provided by Whole Child International have experienced significant health improvements, as well as overall improvement in cognitive, linguistic, motor and social-emotional development. The charity dinner celebrates the 14-year collaboration between Lord Spencer and Theodore Alexander, as well as the strength of relationships to influence positive change.
The furniture debut will be held from 4-5 p.m. in the Theodore Alexander showroom at 229 Russell Avenue in High Point. From 6-9 p.m., guests are also invited to attend the drop-in dinner benefitting Whole Child International with a $25 donation.
