Home: 'Vortex Credenza' -the Mother of all sideboards

“LINLEY pieces have longevity, their quality of construction and on-going stylistic relevance making them future classics.”

I like to keep abreast of stuff, I am going to buy when I grow up -and decided to visit the LINLEY website this morning. I am now -totally exhausted, -in a good way. But even writing about the gorgeous, -grown up posh stuff on offer at LINLEY is draining. Everything at LINLEY's is lovingly and beautifully made by artisans (carpenters) and unless you have 'loadsamoney' -don't bother.

There aren't many pieces of furniture that demand attention like the 'opera of all furniture's' -'Vortex Credenza'. Built like a spaceship, this bourgeois sideboard might claim to be -conventional, but very few sideboards have -a sexy, geometric-y, distorted look -(created by its op art marquetry veneer -my goodness) -causing the piece to look both concave and convex. It does not open in a conventional way, -my goodness, -and the insides (and draws) are all lined in plush, vibrant materials -such as gold leaf and padded velvet (my goodness). Errrrm...the charms of 'Vortex Credenza' are too numerous to list (for example, hidden drawers that reveal more secret drawers ...-my goodness) -but you can buy/view this 'Diva' sideboard at:
