Linley exhibits the art of marquetry, centering on the Vortex cabinet, a visually ingenious piece of art furniture. Additionally, the company’s new Belgravia gallery space is hosting an exhibition of photographs celebrating the 120th anniversary of Country Life magazine. The Interiors Editor of Country Life, Giles Kime, and David Snowdon, Chairman of Linley, will discuss the role of craft in a digital age.

David Snowdon trained as a cabinet-maker and started Linley in 1985 to make one-off pieces of bespoke furniture. Today, the company relies on a network of over 200 exceptionally skilled master craftsmen, from marquetry experts to upholsterers, silversmiths to saddlers, to create their renowned furniture and interiors. Over the years, Country Life Magazine has been a champion of British craftsmanship and in celebration of its 120th anniversary, Giles and David will discuss the role of craft in a digital age.

This event is part of the Grosvenor Series.
