Fine Linley furniture for your palace at Adam’s At Home sale

Adam’s At Home sale – which takes place this Sunday, August 23rd, at its St Stephen’s Green saleroom, and online – features a number of pieces by noteworthy British furniture designer David Linley.

The second Earl of Snowdon, nephew of Queen Elizabeth, Linley began his career at a workshop in Dorking after two years at Parnham House School for Craftsmen in Wood, having studied under the renowned furniture designer John Makepeace.

In 1985 he opened his eponymous company (now known simply as Linley), which has created bespoke furniture for Elton John, Valentino and the Lebanese-Saudi socialite Mouna Ayoub – who is reputed to own the world’s largest collection of haute couture and never wears the same piece twice.

Prices for Linley’s creations come with designer price tags – his Alba sofa costs £78,000 – with a basic sofa costing almost £6,000.

“The price difference between new and second-hand Linley furniture is significant, and this is an opportunity to buy a piece of his furniture at a fraction of what it costs new,” says Amy McNamara of Adam’s.
