With the aim of designing and manufacturing furniture of the highest quality, Linley has worked closely, over the years with designers and craftsmen to ensure that each piece has those quintessentially British characteristics of inventiveness, meticulous attention to detail, ingenuity, creative spirit, eccentricity, sophistication, wit and charm. Among their collection, we selected some of their fantastic armchairs.

In 2006, David took up the position of Honorary Chairman for Christie’s Europe, Middle East, Russia & India, in addition to his role as Chairman of LINLEY.
