Have you got a friend or family member that’s as interiors-obsessed as you? If the answer is yes, we’ve found the ideal gift that will ensure you’re on the Christmas card list for years to come.
Not just the perfect countdown to Christmas, the LINLEY advent calendar is a present that will last a lifetime, and something that shows off exquisite artisan skills that can be enjoyed for years to come.
Inspired by the Georgian architecture of Belgravia and crafted from oak burr and sycamore, the advent calendar presents traditional Christmas household scenes.

The illustrations adorning the calendar are brought to life through marquetry in figured sycamore, madrona burr, eucalyptus, birch, bolivar and bird’s eye maple veneers.
It features 24 numbered drawers that you can personalise and fill with gifts of your choosing, as well as a signature LINLEY hidden compartment for Christmas Day.
The LINLEY advent calendar also boasts an engravable plaque on the front, just like London's famous English Heritage Blue Plaques.
With a limited edition of only five being made, this is a truly unique gift and an investment piece.
Founded by David Linley in 1985, LINLEY has a world-renowned reputation for fusing innovative design with superlative cabinet-making.
David started designing and selling fine furniture to private clients, before growing into retail furniture, gifts and accessories, interior design, and fitted kitchens and cabinetry.
LINLEY has always used the best craftspeople and materials across the UK, but its secret ingredient is its truly bespoke individual approach.
The LINLEY advent calendar will give the recipient a taste of this artistry that they can treasure forever.
