Matthew BurtMatthew Burf s work is rooted in English country furniture, fertilised by the Shaker style and pruned by modernism. His overwhelming enthusiasm and pleasure in using wood appropriately, making fine furniture and creating beautiful objects that will become treasured family heirlooms, is only eclipsed by his determination to perform the daunting task of doing this for ordinary people at affordable prices.

Matthew BurtAshley Cartwright’s wide academic training, his international reputation as an advisor and adjudicator in design, and his vast experience at home and abroad in the field of furniture making and environmental design have placed his name at the forefront in publications, exhibitions and commissions for the past thirty years. Despite, or perhaps because of, his exceptional knowledge of his subject, his furniture is simple, based on an analysis of balance and form, virtually undecorated and constructed of plain home grown timbers, mostly made to commission, for clients who are heavily involved in the design and making process.
