About Us

Max Rollitt is an antique dealer, interior designer and furniture maker. He is one of a small band of influential dealer-decorators whose style is instantly recognisable, combining classical elegance with richness of texture, bold and unusual colour combinations, and the enduring pleasures of comfort. 

An eye for scale and proportion, and an in-depth knowledge of historical interiors, ensure that a room by Max Rollitt will look and feel right, from its architectural bones to the placement of pictures on the walls. Max's appreciation of the fabric of old buildings means that he will always attend to the framework of a room – its flooring, fireplace, and cornices – before turning attention to fabrics and furnishings. Max employs talented architects, interior designers and craftspeople to create singularly beautiful homes.

Max began his professional career as a furniture restorer and cabinetmaker before starting his own antique dealership and bespoke furniture-design business. His first professional interior-design commission came in 2006, and demand for his distinctive style, eye for detail and flair for design has grown steadily since.

How would you describe your style?

"My style is layered, comfortable and educated.  I create interiors that have wit, integrity and reflect the architecture and history of the house whilst keeping a light touch."

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

"Constructed in 1675 as a country retreat for a retired naval captain, we were instructed to help the owners of this handsome 17th-century Oxfordshire farmhouse restore, decorate and furnish the interior.  We worked closely with the clients to add richness and colour, sourcing Georgian furniture and antique textiles to give the house an established feel. We kept as many original features as possible including the late 17th century oak staircase, whilst carefully replacing missing parts of the original floors and restoring cornices and chimneypieces."
