Thomas Burberry opened his first store featuring outdoor attire in Basingstoke, Hampshire in 1856 and the now ubiquitous check began to appear in coat linings in the 1920s. David Linley, son of Princess Margaret and Anthony-Armstrong Jones, began his bespoke furniture company in 1985. These Linley for Burberry boxes on whose lids the iconic check is recreated in oak, walnut, cherry, and sycamore are the perfect mashup of all things British – craftsmanship, design, fashion, history, and royalty.
