Part of the spring/summer collection is the new Gentleman’s Chair, which is available in a variety of colours, materials and motifs, from biscuit suede to plaid and blue velvet. The Gentleman’s Chair is an enticing mixture of conservatism and bold modernism. Equally at home in a smoking room or a contemporary lounge, the Gentleman’s Chair exudes contradiction, attraction and quality.
Among the 200 guests present at the evening event were Arnaud Bamberger, William and Lady Laura Cash, Rupert Bevan, Lord and Lady Bamford and Nick Foulkes, not to mention members of the superyacht realm. Guests were provided with a number of canapés inspired by the English garden and the finest English sparkling wine, and departed from the showroom with miniature seed packets to sow their own English wild flower garden.
“Linley made a bit of splash at the last Monaco Yacht Show with their organic Silhouette Chair formed from single copper panel—GBP 60,000-worth of beautiful form and function,” commented John Leonida, partner at Clyde & Co. “That’s how I met them. I am a design geek. Their parties are a great place to meet old design friends and the Linley people who uphold best traditions of British design and craftsmanship. The quality and innovation that superyacht owners demand was fully on display at the party. Their enthusiasm is infectious and their parties are a joy to be at.”
