What Makes a LINLEY Classic?

SCROLL TO DISCOVER What Makes a LINLEY Classic?

LINLEY has become known for making fine furniture in a modern classical idiom—traditional in its terms of reference rather than ‘backwards looking’, with its design rooted in classical architecture and traditional craftsmanship, discover the elements needed to become a LINLEY Classic.

 

“To look to the future one often has to reference the past”
David Linley

1. Timeless

Launched in 1985, the LINLEY Classic collection has found a place within the hearts of design enthusiasts across the world, bringing an air of classic design to both contemporary and traditional interiors.

2. TECHNICALLY SUPERIOR

Made in England, the collection continues LINLEY’s tradition of classic craftsmanship by utilising cabinet making in a modern way. Incorporating classical motifs and references; tapering legs, deep chamfers, inlays, quarter veneering in this pared-down simplified interpretation.

3. SYMMETRICALLY SUBLIME

Inspired by Palladian architecture, known for highly symmetrical designs, incorporating Corinthian columns, each piece from the LINLEY Classic has been designed with these elements in mind.

Delicately curved handles and striking Roman column style embellishments are incorporated into throughout.
