Native Son: Matthew Cox Antiques in Stamford, England

April 9, 2019

Discovered via our designer friend Cassandra Ellis: third-generation antiques dealer Matthew Cox, who operates between Stamford (where he’s based) and London. He lives in the same town he grew up in, in a “very old, very large house on the town square; I pretty much live in the equivalent of my childhood home,” he says. “History is repeating.”

“Matthew is an antiques dealer and maker of incredible pieces of furniture and lighting,” Cassandra says. “He manages to combine pieces in a way that is comfortable, modern, and traditional. Telling stories through objects and the magical ‘Ma.’ or space in between. Never too much or too little. It’s a rare skill.”

Take a tour of Matthew’s house at Atelier Ellis.

Here’s a look at his offerings (consult his website for pricing):
