Giles Round’s Obelisk Marbling Company

At Nostell Nights, Giles Round’s ‘Obelisk Marbling’ will be open for business, a company that produces marbled masterpieces using traditional techniques. Just as Chippendale’s London premises had custom-made rooms for glass work and wood carving, Round has sourced and created furniture, tools and materials to install a bespoke marbling workshop in the heart of Nostell’s treasure house. Not to be missed!

Interior Worlds

Explore how Chippendale helped create bespoke interiors for Nostell and immerse yourself in a world of fashion, luxury, innovation and the rollercoaster life of a top-end designer. The first floor at Nostell was designed for formal entertainment and to impress Rowland Winn’s visitors. These grand ‘State Rooms’ are where the most expense was spent on internal decoration, which meant employing the best and most fashionable architects and designers of the day.

Chippendale: the Man and the Brand

Visit the exhibition on the ground floor to unravel the story Thomas Chippendale and his special connection to Nostell. How did a humble cabinet maker from Otely become a world-famous brand?
