The brand turning homes into masterpieces

As the idiom goes, “An Englishman’s home is his castle.” At Linley this Christmas, you have all the objets d’art you need to turn your castle into a palace.

If style begins at home, Linley is where you hang your hat. Founded by David Linley in 1985, son of the legendary photographer Lord Snowdon, his eponymous brand produces bespoke furniture and homeware of the highest standards. At its core are the classic British characteristics of inventiveness, attention to detail, ingenuity, eccentricity, wit and charm, and for nearly 40 years, the brand has remained at the zenith of luxury interiors.

Despite the fact that, much like fashion, interior design is a transitory concept that goes through cycles and trends, Linley's designs are immune to the contemporary style of the moment, in so far as each and every piece his atelier creates is a work of art, bestowed with a beauty and timelessness that allows it to seamlessly integrate into any interior style, from ornate baroque to Japanese minimalism. It's this focus on the innate beauty and form of every piece that makes Linley's designs objects that pass from generation to generation, naturally embellished with the marks, bumps and scratches of living. Because that's what these pieces do: live. Yes, they are visually stunning executions of craftsmanship that demand to be ogled at in awe, but they are also functionally brilliant and intended to be used daily.
