Tim Gosling

Tim Gosling – Director and founder

Tim Gosling graduated from the Central School of Art and Design in 1987 with a degree in Theatre Design. In 2005, following 18 years as a Director at Linley, Tim set up Gosling, giving him freedom to design a wider range of furniture and to push the boundaries of historic and new materials. Gosling creates unique pieces and has built up an inspiring portfolio, with commissions for interiors, super yachts and furniture worldwide. Commercial projects include The Goring, one of London’s last five star hotels and the only hotel in the world to receive a Royal Warrant. Tim has been instrumental in the furniture design for the Bond Street flagship Jaeger Le-Coultre store, the luxury Swiss watch and clock manufacturer.

Tim lives in an elegant 1787 London townhouse surrounded by his private collection of exquisite paintings, first edition books and sculpture. Passionate about preserving the language of furniture and design, Tim lectures regularly and has produced a short film on The Regency Period. In 2009 Tim published Gosling, Classic Design for Contemporary Interiors and in 2012 London Secret’s A Draughtsman’s Guide, which catalogues Tim’s pencil sketches of hidden London. Tim’s latest book is the highly acclaimed, Classic Contemporary – The DNA of Furniture Design.
