Prince Charles Unveils Dumfries House Homes: architecturaldigest.com

Several years ago, a major drama unfolded in Great Britan when Dumfries House, one of the most significant and beautiful historic properties in the Commonwealth, teetered on the verge of sale and dispersal. The 18th-century Palladian villa in Ayrshire, Scotland, is a seminal work of renowned architect Robert Adam and his brothers, John and James; it contains a world-class collection of British Rococo furniture, including some 50 examples from a fledgling cabinetmaker named Thomas Chippendale. Ordered straight from the craftsman’s workshop in 1759 by the fifth Earl of Dumfries, who commissioned the house and took up residence there the following year, the furnishings now form part of a magnificent ensemble that embodies, in the words of His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales, “British craftsmanship at its best.”
