The Earl of Spenser - Al Thorpe Living History - Furniture

Who can forget this man reading the eulogy for Princess Diana ?
That's Right, this is her brother, the Earl of Spenser.
I think he is a dashing man.
The Earl of Spenser is in Tampa today signing some of the pieces of furniture that have been made to exactly duplicate ( about 40% of the collection ) furniture from his family estate going back some 400 hundred years.
He wants to leave his family home in a better condition than he found it, so he has taken part in this business venture.
I would love to take a closer look at this piece, it would suit me just fine. When I am doing floor plans for clients I usually do not use a huge blueprint sheet, I use a smaller sheet that will fit 1-4 rooms at 1/4 " scale. So this would be perfect instead of my drafting table

About Renée Finberg

I have been in this business since the age of 22.

I love what I do and cannot imagine my life without Design.

Design Challenges are great.

And because of those challenges

I have imported fine antique pieces from Paris,

Designed and Manufactured Furniture,

Created Fantastic Window Treatments,

And solved all kinds of spatial & architectural issues

With my unique style.

If I can't find it, I create it.

My rooms would make excellent movie sets.

I am a visual, tactile and audio sensitive individual.

Creating is what I live for, not math, not spelling, not science.

Just Great Design.

Just imagine how it would be if each of us,

If only for a few hours of everyday,We could be in a space that is our very own.A place that is exactly the way we want it to be

Surrounded by all the things we wanted to see,

The atmosphere we wanted feel, smell and the sound we wanted to listen to.
