LINLEY at Masterpiece London 2019
At Masterpiece 2019, LINLEY are presenting a lifestyle setting.
Introducing several pieces of unique furniture which showcase exceptional marquetry and pedigree in Interior Design, the Masterpiece 2019 Alba Collection explores a modern interpretation of Luxury Deco.
LINLEY have created a salon setting combining Art Deco style with lavish detailing and exquisite finishes. Their design team have fused functionality and practicality, with emphasis placed on enduring aesthetic appeal. Patterned veneers adorn the pieces, influenced by Mondrian, Miró and Kandinsky, set within an environment that reflects the geometric influences in their art.
LINLEY are introducing a softer aesthetic to this year’s collection, incorporating comfortable upholstery and delicate silhouettes. A spectacular drinks cabinet, coffee table and seating lie within a sophisticated suite. The furniture, glazed in warm honey tones and featuring luxurious materials, can sit in different interiors while providing a sense of relaxed elegance.
The drinks cabinet, coffee table, sofa and chair backs have been crafted with mango veneers, a natural toned fruit wood. The veneers are embellished with geometric patterns morphing into straight grain, featuring ornate jasmine flowers crafted from mother of pearl. The jasmine flowers, which symbolise love, purity and good luck, seemingly grow and wind across the panels, juxtaposing with the sharper geometrics, relaxing the angular pieces and creating a fluid environment.
The distinguished drinks cabinet has a bookcase front which rotates inwards to reveal a luxurious bar, as well as drawers for barware & accessories.
The sofa, which comfortably seats two, and the matching occasional chairs are designed with smooth curves and sweeping arms upholstered in a textured bronze palette. Perfect for lounging.
LINLEY aspire to excite and surprise, especially with theor signature hidden compartments, always revealed in an unexpected way. To this end their coffee table contains a twist – quite literally. The top has built in storage for a corkscrew, bespoke stacking coasters and ice bucket.
A bespoke carpet, made in collaboration with Colbourns, continues the geometric theme with concentric circles phasing from dark to light inwards in the same warm tones. Above the furniture hangs a stunning handcrafted chandelier of golden leaves from The Art of Charles (La Maison Charles), made of resin on a brass framework. The stand features two bronze sculptures by artist Robert Fogell, on loan from The Nine British Art Gallery, and artwork by Jeremy Annear from Messum’s Gallery.
