When River of Goods® was founded, the basis of our company was lighting. We live for lamps! Our buyers travel the world to look for inspiration for new designs and trends. As our product line grew to include furniture and rugs, our love for lighting never dimmed. We continue to sell classic designs and traditional styles alongside innovative technology and contemporary pieces. Now, we’ve “crossed the pond” to post-Edwardian era England for inspiration for our latest collection.
When Downton Abbey hit TV, we realized our lamps would be fitting for any room featured on the show. Stained glass lamps, elaborate cloth shades with scalloped edges and fringe details, and hand-blown accent lighting – these are styles and details that we regularly showcase. While watching the show we would find ourselves saying out loud, “We sell a lamp just like that one!” The next day in the office we would ask each other, “Did you see that lamp on the show last night?” Customers agreed, stating that our lamps looked just like the ones on Downton Abbey. Being fans ourselves, we wanted to find a way to bring the elegance of Downton Abbey into the homes of our customers and the show’s fans.
After careful consideration and months of planning and product development, we have been granted the license and are happy to announce that we will be launching an exclusive line, Downton Abbey Lighting by River of Goods in Spring 2015. The line will include:
• Floor lamps
• Table lamps
• Wall sconces
• Accent lamps
We are developing the collection as we speak – drawing inspiration from the show’s grand castle backdrop and stylish characters, featuring approximately 20 exclusive designs that are rich in color, texture, and detail inspired by the time period and relevant for today’s homes. The collection will debut during the AmericasMart Atlanta market in January 2015. If you’re attending, please make an appointment to visit the River of Goods showroom located in Building 2, Suite 1135. The debut will coordinate with the airing of the Downton Abbey Season 5 premiere on Jan. 4, 2015.
Here at River of Goods, we strive to mix classic, traditional designs with new contemporary looks. Our Downton Abbey Lighting collection will have a timeless, classic look, which will fit in to any home décor, especially fitting for fans of the show.
