Sir Thomas Tresham’s Triangular Lodge


Was what leapt to mind on seeing the aforementioned stool - image care of Martin Sutton / Flickr.

The ultimate in Symbolist Architecture, was built in the late 16th century by Thomas Tresham in Rushton, Northamptonshire.   A devout Catholic who was imprisoned for his beliefs on his release he built this ode to the Holy Trinity.

I think the stool is very much in the 'Antiquarian' taste of the mid-nineteenth century.

  2. What a gorgeous building. Oh, how I would like to live in that house, with that stool.
