Simply perfect – the Galvin Brothers of Beverley

October 13, 2013

They may sound like pair of gunslingers from a spaghetti western, but these boys from Beverley are fast becoming hot shots in the world of furniture.

Matthew and Andrew were shortlisted for Best British Designer in the Elle Deco British Design Awards recently and have also caught the eye of M&S.

They set up the company just over a year ago and have grabbed attention with their beautifully crafted, contemporary pieces, which include the Perfectly Imperfect stool.

Committed to Yorkshire, they source everything from their wood to their fabrics within the county and everything is made by them in Beverley.

“We’ve already had to extend the workshop twice to cope with demand,” says Matthew “but there’s plenty of room to expand some more and we intend to stay here.”

A couple of chips off the old block, they inherited the premises from dad Tony, a retired joiner, who can’t keep away and helps them out every day.


2014 is set to be a big year for the boys. They are putting the finishing touches to their shop in Beverley and M&S is preparing to put their work on its shelves.
