FrontRunners: Linley London Box

<< Back to Robb Report, August 2013

    Available as a humidor or a jewelry box, the Linley Limited Edition London Box (www.davidlinley.com) depicts many of the city’s most celebrated landmarks in an inlaid mosaic that decorates the lid. Linley, which is based in London and acclaimed for its marquetry and furniture designs, rendered the stylized London skyline in eucalyptus, maple, and sycamore that have been stained to various degrees and set against a background of dark-gray ripple sycamore. The skyline includes the London Eye, the Swiss Re Building, St. Paul’s Cathedral, the Tower Bridge, the Big Ben tower, and No. 10 Downing Street. The humidor comes with a built-in humidification system and is large enough to hold approximately 40 cigars. Each model is priced at about $7,000.
