A Journey of Design, by LINLEY
One of our most loved designers, LINLEY, is opening their Belgravia store on Monday 16th September 2019 allowing guests to discover their new season collection. There is the chance to learn about the creative process and craftsmanship from one of the finest designers.
In 1982, David Linley started to design, make and sell fine furniture to private clients. His passion for people, design and the pursuit of excellence continues to be the driving force of the business and today LINLEY has grown from private commissions to include retail furniture, gifts and accessories, interior design and fitted kitchens and cabinetry.
