Yacht Interiors by Linley
We are pleased to recommend British design company, LINLEY, who are developing a series of yacht and jet interior designs exclusively for ICM Group clients.
LINLEY is recognised worldwide as a luxury brand and prides itself on its dedication to the pursuit of excellence in the design and creation of fine furniture and interiors. The company has moved from the tradition of bespoke furniture-making through to that of sophisticated interior design and will be working in conjunction with the ICM Group and other advisers in order to develop luxury interiors for the superyacht and private aircraft markets.
The Linley team describe their designs as follows:
The overall aesthetic of this main saloon concept is slick and glamorous, moving on from a more conventional, angular interior to create a scheme which embraces curves and elegant proportions. The mood is one of luxurious comfort and the tones are warm and rich.
A circular layout in the main saloon is combined with two curved bespoke sofas and an oval daybed sofa. An aquatic fabric colour pallete has been chosen to evoke the sea contrasted with neutrals and off whites, together with a slash of burnt orange reflecting sunshine and warmth. Interest and allure has been created by using a mixture of textures and patterns combining sumptuous velvets, cottons, silks and linens with leathers including bespoke handcut fishscale effect leather on the backs of the dining chairs, eel skin wall cladding on the half height units under the windows, marble and a variety of timbers.
Macassar ebony has been used for the main full height wall cladding, and the dining room feature wall is clad in rosewood with a slipmatched sun burst design inlaid with marquetry tropical fish!
Floors are made in walnut with an inset silk and wool mix bespoke carpet following the circular layout of the room which is in turn thinly bordered by marble.
All the key furniture items are bespoke designed for the scheme. These include tables combining Macassar ebony with marble and a coffee table inset with a marble chess board. Side tables feature a turquoise lacquer interior as do the wall niches.
A room divider in Macassar ebony provides a natural break between the dining and sitting area. The central section of this houses the TV unit and an integrated AV system is flanked by vertical aerofoil fins that can pivot open or be closed to divide the dining area from the sitting area if required.
The recessed ceilings are silver leafed and are subtly lit to create a sophisticated, glamorous ambience. Elsewhere lighting is made up of a combination of recessed ceiling spotlights with a bespoke oval glass chandelier over the dining table and side table lamps.
Storage is key on a boat and the scheme includes ample hidden storage which does not in any way compromise the overall design.
