Film Props News

When we worked in the film Industry for a few years, we collected some brilliant props, furniture and objects from many major films. With the help of Luciana Arrighi, an Oscar and Bafta Award winning Production Designer, who has also donated many beautiful items and pieces of furniture from some of our best known feature films, we have furnished Chetwynd Lodge and hoped to make it into magical and unique place. When you look around, some of the furniture before you now has had another life on the silver screen- perhaps as a table in a Thai palace in ‘Anna and the King’ or a drinking vessel in the film ‘Alexander’. The props and furniture bought for the films that follow are also from all over the world and have journeyed from markets in Bali and Malaysia, flea markets in Paris and souks in Marrakesh, travelling to various films sets around the world and ending up here in Ingestre Lodges! We hope you enjoy reading about where these pieces came from and perhaps imagining which film star may have sat on the very chair you are sitting on, or drunk wine (non-alcoholic prop wine of course! ) from the Greek drinking vessels!
