With days to go, David Linley is dreaming up his ideal Christmas. I caught up with him last week to quiz him… The furniture maker son of Princess Margaret has done his shopping at Daylesford Organic, is heading to the country for festivities and looking forward to unwrapping presents under the tree; he’s rather hopeful there might be a subscription to Country Life magazine. Earlier this month, Linley launched his new book Star Pieces – The Enduring Beauty of Spectacular Furniture.

Like most fathers, all Linley wants for Christmas is something handmade by his children. “They’re very inquisitive and creative.” He says of Charles, 10 and Margarita, 7. “I’d love something that my children have designed and made themselves.” And what do you know; the history of furniture design is repeating itself in the Linley household.
