Berrington Hall is a fine country house located about 3 miles north of Leominster, Herefordshire, England. In April 2022 the Hall’s Admiral’s room was cleared out and reclaimed for use in showcasing various exhibits. This season the room is being used to add on to their Dress Fit for a King exhibition and showcase 5 replica court mantua dresses, made by Michelle Barker of Handbound Costumes. Read More

 

The Product solution:

Berrington Hall chose the Absolute Freestanding Barrier 400mm in black with black elasticated cord for this space, which not only protects the exhibit but also plays an active role in supporting the over-all feel and visual tone of the room.

The black barriers and cord in combination with the cream Mantua dresses give a buttoned up tailored feel to the space, reminiscent of a ball room with ladies in dresses and men in black tie. The barriers and cord compliment without over powering.
