About Us

Following in the footsteps of his father and grandfather, Matthew Cox leapt into the world of decorative antiques and set up his business between west London and Stamford in 1997. Despite such an antiques pedigree, Matthew has always kept his approach fresh; challenging the established order and blurring the lines between antique and contemporary. His love of bold, spare, vernacular design informs his fascination for authentic surface and patina, and his 20-years handling original pieces led him to create both an original finish library and a collection of versatile made to measure pieces. Matthew’s eye for detail and his collaborative creative process have earned him the respect of many high-profile and exacting interior designers, commercial and private clients in the UK and all over the world.

Please describe a recently completed project or tell us about the bespoke service that you offer

Every made to measure or completely bespoke piece we design and make is a one-off inspired and informed by centuries of functional design. Each table or chair, cupboard or cabinet, lantern or mirror is made by hand in England – from natural materials meticulously selected to meet the individual brief. We work on projects as diverse as Italian masserias and Mayfair member’s clubs to create pieces that delight our clients and spark off the intended setting. Complementing our made to measure and bespoke services is our collection of 16th-20th century decorative antiques, which also reflect our restrained aesthetic and a love of pieces that serve their purpose beautifully. Our creative process is encouraging and collaborative. We spend time understanding your brief before using historic and contemporary referencing, as well as our own versatile designs and original finish library, to create the perfect piece every time.
