Lee Thornley

This design entrepreneur and founder of Bert & May specialises in the reclamation and production of tiles and wood. Before this, Lee built a boutique hotel in Spain, named as one of Tatler’s top 101 hotels in the world. Commuting between Yorkshire and London, Lee lives on a ‘Bert & May Space’ in the form of a barge on the canal outside his office during the week. When he’s not working, Lee rummages in antique shops and sates his foodie cravings.
Our favourite London tip from Lee: Visit the climbing wall in Mile End for an adrenalin rush.
