Among the highlights presented here is the Hearst Castle Collection of lighting and home accessories. Craftsmen labored nearly 28 years under the direction of architecht Julia Morgan to create the estate known as Hearst Castle, once the private home of publisher William Randolph Hearst. Now an historic landmark in the California State Parks system, the 165 rooms and 127 acres of gardens, terraces and pools provide the inspiration for a stunning collection of furnishings.
Hearst invited all of his guests to gather in the Assembly Room to socialize before dinner. Celebrities like Charles Lindbergh and Cary Grant would sip cocktails or play poker in these opulent surroundings. Several of the exquisite lighting fixtures featured in the Hearst Castle Collection reproduce priceless Italian Renaissance candlesticks which had been wired for electrical light.
Many of the pieces in the Hearst Castle collection are reproductions of actual furnishings found around the Gothic Study. Lamps such as the Gothic Study Lamp and the East Room Table Lamp recall the elegance of the actual pieces Hearst used to live, work and socialize in his famed San Simeon castle. Now you can capture the rich elegance of a bygone era in your own home through this remarkable collection of lighting and decorative furnishings.
Created through an exclusive arrangement with Hearst Castle, these faithful reproductions and interpretations allow us a glimpse of the exquisite treasures housed in the San Simeon home of the late William Randolph Hearst. As you browse thse pages, you can imagine yourself transported to a different time and place.
