LINLEY Blogger Event 2015
Posted on 03 December 2015
I always find this part of the year incredibly exciting, the Christmas decorations and displays are out, Winter seasons are filling the shops and of course, it is time for the LINLEY Blogger event! This year was a beautiful and intimate event with marquetry demonstrations, product displays and talks with wonderful catering and Nyetimber Wine set out by the team.
It was great to see the store decorated for Christmas with very elegant garlands with rich coloured flowers and decorations. I had to share my favourite decoration, this mantle garland with hidden LINLEY presents nestled between to add that luxury touch. The event was a great chance to get into the Christmas spirit, see old favourites and discover new designs released by their incredible designers.
I have always admired the marquetry designs, they are something that I associate with luxury and LINLEY so I was incredibly excited to be given the opportunity to have a go at the marquetry myself. As you would expect, the designs were not as large and complex as the iconic designs that you see on the jewellery boxes but they did have a beautiful Christmas twist!
All the wood has been precisely cut with a laser to create a seamless finish of different coloured designs. You can see from the imagery above, the progress of my snowflake marquetry. I am very proud to say that this snowflake takes pride of place at the top of my Christmas tree at home!
The Christmas blogger event gave me a fantastic chance to browse the store and take a look at the stunning luxury detail of the designs more closely. What really impressed me in my browse around the store were the designs and materials used in the gaming sets that you can see imaged above. The choice of materials and finishes is unlike anything I have seen with other brands. Not only are they fun to use and play, they are beautiful items to admire, miniature works of art and perfect gifts for this time of year.
From all of my discoveries at the blogger event, there was one that stood out above the rest, an item that I have fallen in love and cannot wait to feature on my blog, the Tectonic bar. Watching the demonstration, my mouth dropped as this unit opened up with glamour and style. As you can see from the images below, the design is of the highest quality and full of surprises. Guaranteed to impress any guest, this bar has everything from a drinks fridge to a humidor, with a few hidden surprises in store!
I want to thank the team at LINLEY for being such fantastic hosts, it is always a pleasure to attend the events and discover designs that are so inspiring I am quite literally lost for words.
