Stamford-based business Matthew Cox looks to employ more people
A business is looking to employ more people in the area following a successful four years.
Matthew Cox, from Stamford, is a third generation antique dealer but in recent years discovered his own passion for designing bespoke furniture.
With partner, Camilla McLean, they re-branded his antique business, Matthew Cox, in 2017 to include his owns designs.
Camilla said: “He found that’s when he could be most creative. He took time to understand what draws him to certain antique pieces and designed made to measure furniture with this in mind.
“He designed it to be really used and stand the test of time.
“Where we are different is we make it with what it’s going to be in mind, what it will be used for and what it will become in the future to make sure it becomes more beautiful and valuable over time.”
Some of Matthew Cox’s designs have been purchased by notable people such as Nigella Lawson and husband and wife Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis, and featured in Architectural Digest and The Times.
After a kitchen island inspired by a preparation table at Burghley House was purchased by an American interior designer with more than a million online followers, the business was also given a welcome boost.
Now Matthew and Camilla hope to find new recruits to join their Stamford-based team of 11. They are always on the lookout for furniture makers and are also recruiting a studio manager and a production co-ordinator.
“Our workshop is constantly trying to improve construction techniques and finishing,” said Camilla. “Through the way we make we try aim not only reduce our impact on the planet but to leave a positive legacy, passing on skills to people and being a positive example of a modern sustainable business.”
