Althorp Living History Collection

A living history.

About The Designer

Snooper’s Paradise is proud to be only dealer between Houston and Baton Rouge to carry the exciting and unique Althorp Living History collection.

Althorp is the country estate of Charles Earl Spencer, brother of Princess Diana. Earl Spencer and Diana grew up on this estate.

Writes Spencer, “I view my role primarily as custodian, rather than that of owner. There is a constant need for the house and its collection to support itself. The Spencer family has joined with Theodore Alexander to reproduce pieces from the estate and make them available to the public.”

More than 300 classic pieces from the 500 year old Spencer estate are available now, with new pieces being added at the High Point Furniture Market. Beautifully crafted in mahogany and walnut, the 18th and 19th century reproduction pieces have a decisively transitional flair, suitable for today’s modern homes. Most case (wood) goods are available in a 3 to 4 week delivery period. In addition, Althorp offers many interesting upholstery pieces, both available in a wide selection of beautiful fabrics or customer’s own material.
