Founded in 1985, LINLEY is globally renowned for blending striking design with exemplary craftsmanship. The son of Princess Margaret and celebrated photographer Lord Snowdon, David Linley’s royal roots have helped to showcase the quintessentially British characteristics of ingenuity and creativity while continuing to push design boundaries and transform fledgling concepts into reality.
What truly sets LINLEY apart is its collaborative approach to beautiful design. The brand has become synonymous with distinctive creations and premium craftmanship delivered with exemplary service.
Their world-class artisans and engineers pride themselves on rising to any challenge, an ethos reflected by its founder’s unique upbringing. The team adopts a bespoke approach to every project, ensuring that unique and creative solutions reflect the client’s personality and desired outcome. While the brand exhibits a design lineage, the team is not tied to a house style and can work without confines or constraints. It’s a refreshing and appealing approach which means style briefs from any era or influence can be realised, whether on water or land.
A unique approach to beautiful interiors
A considerable factor in LINLEY’s success is that the team recognises that every client has a unique set of requirements, not only from the perspective of the design brief but also appetite for involvement in the creative process. While some clients favour a hands-on approach and have a resolved vision and expectation, others may need inspiration or guidance. The team considers the creative process an evolution, with the journey as an experience to enjoy together. Similarly, this influence can be tailored to suit the project’s needs. Luxurious retail furniture, furnishings and accessories are at the disposal of those wishing to adopt a, ‘light-touch’ approach to their interior scheme, while the ‘single-hand of design’ concept is popular for those aiming for an interior overhaul. Here, the architectural interiors team, kitchen and cabinetry divisions, furniture specialists and bespoke team are primed to accommodate client ambitions of every size and scale.
Breaking boundaries with pieces that stand the test of time
When the company launched nearly forty years ago, it did so with distinction and flair. It was a pioneer in pushing back the boundaries of bespoke craftsmanship, forging a reputation for uniting the world’s finest designers with master craftsmen dedicated to producing masterpieces and intergenerational heirlooms with meticulous attention to detail. This bespoke offering allows customers to incorporate custom pieces as a standalone feature or within an interior design scheme. Similarly, the Kitchen and Cabinetry divisions boast the rare capability of achieving novel design with assured construction. They’ve developed a global reputation for undertaking commissions spanning bespoke kitchens, walk-in wardrobes and panelled libraries to studies, cinemas and wine rooms – anywhere in the world. With a genuine passion for furniture, each piece is tailored to the unique needs of the client, from modest designs to more complex interior feats.
What began as a revolutionary British brand back in 1985 continues to evolve to meet the needs of an ever-increasing client base across the world. The hallmark of luxury, we look forward to celebrating another forty years of this iconic company.
