Linley Sambourne House SOLD OUT
Visit | Linley Sambourne House
Thursday 27 November 2014 - 11:30 until 12:30
From 1875, this property was the home of Punch cartoonist Edward Linley Sambourne. This private tour gives an insight into the lives of the Sambourne family, and provides a rare example of an 'Aesthetic interior' or 'House Beautiful' style. The Aesthetic Movement of the late 19th century advocated the use of foreign or 'exotic' influences in decoration. This can be seen in the various Japanese, Middle-Eastern and Chinese objects throughout the home. After the deaths of the Sambourne family, Stafford Terrace was preserved by their descendants and fittings and furnishings remain intact. As a listed building, unfortunately Linley Sambourbe house is not fully accessible. The house is on four floors and there is no lift.
This event has been organised by the London Events Volunteer Fundraising Committee to help raise money for the Art Fund.
