Knives Out! Set design

I am in love with that mansion and the decor. I was watching the movie for Thanksgiving as it reminds me of my family, and was having so much fun looking at the backgrounds that I had to rewind a lot.

Regardless of what you think of the movie plot or the acting, the set design was superb.

(See link for lots of photos).

If anyone knows where to find any of the items shown, please post! I'd love to have the desk lamp that was in the downstairs study, for example, or the amazing giant (?) statuary lights flanking the doorway into the parlor with the clock.

All CGI.

Read the story at the link. No CGI. It must be amazing to work in set design or at a prop house.

R2 A prop house with all that stuff must be amazing. Like a museum, with interesting items from all sorts of things just jumbled together.

I think they got a lot of it from collectors. That’s an interesting website.

Off topic but: Daniel Craig really endeared himself to me in this movie. He was obviously having fun and displayed a subtle wit.

I also loved the set design. Spent a lot of time rewinding - “Ooh, LOVE that chair!”

It was a fun movie but odd for an theatrical release. They should make them a yearly thing and put it on Netflix. Make it a new holiday tradition.

The lead was so hilarious she got nominated for a Golden Globe for best actress in a comedy.

Yeah, that was whack.

R7 I thought it was made for Netflix?

Netflix is making a Knives Out 2 and 3 apparently.

R5 yeah the character was over the top and he did a good job at it. By the end of the movie when Ransom tells me he's sick of his accent though - I felt that!

Total piece of shit.

Every boring person I know loves this movie. I don't think it's anything special.

The point of this thread isn't so much the story and acting as it is the set design. As stated in OP!

Here's some more and higher detail images of the set!
