David Linley


As this London based designer and furniture maker (and yes, he is the Queen's nephew) goes into their 25th year, I thought I would share a few of my favorite Linley pieces:






Linley is also known for miniature wood boxes that work as jewelry boxes or humidors.  While working with Charlotte Moss, I had the pleasure of working with Linley to construct a box designed after the New York Library.  The process includes choosing the piece of architecture, taking many photographs to capture all the details, conceptual sketches including dimensions and wood finishes, and finally the finished product!  While I don't have images of the New York Library, below are a few spectacular examples of the detailed craftsmanship and use-ability of the piece.  Enjoy!
