Power woman Lady Tina Green wears every hat; businesswoman, yacht design specialist, furniture designer, wealthiest woman in the UK, billionaires wife and mother of four.
Green is wife of Sir Philip Green, who owns the Arcadia Group encompassing Top Shop, Top Man, Miss Selfridge among others, as well as British Home Stores. She is now an Interior and product designer for Lalique Maison with a range of exclusive and highly successful projects to her name. At the moment she is designing the Rene Lalique Hotel in Wingen-sur-Moder in France as well as a varied portfolio of luxury homes and yachts.
Lady Tina Green recently visited Dubai with her business partner Pietro Mingarelli to launch an exclusive line of Furniture, linens and accessories in collaboration with luxury giant LALIQUE. I had the privilege of interviewing them to learn more about the collection, their luxury lifestyle and international clientele.
The design team met when they were both contracted to do a yacht project and haven’t separated since. With their ever growing business the team has created a stunning collection of turnkey homes and yachts, many within the LALIQUE portfolio. Taking 4 years to complete each yacht, the team fly’s around the world by private jet to check on details, manufacturing and quality of each and every element through its process from New York, Jaipur to Germany and Italy.
Lady Tina Green’s favorite finish in her new collection is a rich, high gloss navy lacquered ebony wood veneer. As for her evidently classic black and Ivory color scheme chosen for most of her collection and properties, Green states that the palette is timeless and tireless, inspired by the classics of Coco Chanel and Rene Lalique. Her collection is precious and collectible with each piece individually numbered and certified by LALIQUE.
Drawing inspiration from the original designs of René Lalique, the collection is a masterpiece of exquisite handcrafted home accessories and bed linens, creating a timeless mix of traditional and contemporary with a minimalist and elegant palette. Precise craftsmanship of specialist artisans, the finest cabinet makers, craftsmen from Italy and France and the finest daring expertise of LALIQUE glass-masters whom ensure the esteemed “LALIQUE France” signature endures as a statement of authenticity, quality and luxury, respected and admired by discerning connoisseurs worldwide.
