At the 2014 Chelsea Flower Show, Haddonstone launched a fabulous collection of designs, replicated from
                                                historic works of art on display at the renowned Sir John Soane’s Museum in London.  Sir John Soane
                                                (1753-1837) was one of the most inventive and celebrated architects of his time.  His surviving works include
                                                Pitzhanger Manor, Ealing, and his house in Lincoln’s Inn Fields, London (now the Soane Museum) which is
                                                probably his greatest legacy.

                                                The Museum contains his astonishing collection of artefacts.  Under the licencing agreement between
                                                Haddonstone and the Museum, the Museum will benefit financially from every sale made from the exquisite
