Ultimate Restoration {The Dumfries House}

The Dumfries House in Scotland has been lovingly restored back from the brink of being totally dismantled of all of it's precious pieces and sold to the highest bidder. Well, Prince Charles stepped in and saved this historical monument. Dumfries House is an example of Palladian architecture by Robert Adams and his brothers, John and James. There is a collection of magnificent British Rococo furniture including 50 examples of Thomas Chippendale. What a learning experience one would have visiting the Dumfries house! It is now open to the public during its restoration. Architectural Digest has a wonderful article accompanied by photographs of this amazing piece of history.
