Galvin Brothers

Date: April 28, 2016 Category: ,

Galvin Brothers design and make beautifully hand crafted, contemporary furniture from their workshops in Beverley, East Yorkshire.  The brother team, Matt, a Royal College of Art graduate and previously a graphic designer working on clients including Paul Smith, The Guardian, the V&A and The Royal College of Art, and Andrew, a joiner, were nominated for Designer of the Year by Elle Decoration shortly after the company was formed back in 2012.

With a mission is to revive the dying forms of carpentry mastered by their father for over 60 years their designs are created with a contemporary twist and are built to last.

The brothers take inspiration from traditional craft furniture and Scandinavian design. They are also inspired by long-standing British furniture companies like Ercol, furniture designers like Hans Wegner, as well as fashion brands and designers such as Paul Smith.

Materials are source locally to the contemporary furniture designers.  Their timber supplier is John Boddy Timber of Boroughbridge and their fabrics are from Abraham Moon in Guiseley.

The business has a clientele of domestic customers in the US and Australia, as well as Heal’s in London. Galvin Brothers have just finished creating a range of contemporary furniture, working to the brief “Form & Function” for Jameson Whiskey to be part of The Jameson Works; a community for makers which sees the whiskey brand work with creatives on different projects, each one focusing on the process of how they make what they make.
