A term we've used more than once this year (in a tongue-in-cheek way, you understand), "Downton chic" describes perfectly a look we've seen a lot of in fashion over the last 12 months, particularly in the revival of the sort of velvets, tweeds and nipped-in waists seen in the popular TV drama.
Now, an interiors trend comes along with a similar theme - evoking the tradition and grandeur of the quintessential British stately home. And where better to show off a stag's head silver decanter or a dramatic antler candelabra than the festive winter table? Tally ho ho ho.
