Our Story

Galvin Brothers design and make contemporary handcrafted furniture from their workshops in Beverley, East Yorkshire.

Building on their Father’s 62 years of joinery and cabinet making experience, the business was formed by Matthew Galvin (designer) and Andrew Galvin (joiner) in March 2012.

Our designs celebrate the uniquely wonderful properties of English Oak and other hardwoods, placing traditional joinery techniques at the centre of contemporary forms — functional objects with a twist.

Galvin Brothers furniture is designed and built to last; honest-to-goodness and evenly priced.

Our Story

Made in England

Since our launch back in November 2012 our business has expanded with a growing collection of furniture, an extension to our workshops and the opening of our first shop in Beverley, East Yorkshire. We have sold furniture to domestic customers all over the country and in to contract environments for clients as far as Australia.

In 2013 we were nominated for Designer of the Year in the prestigious Elle Decoration British Design Awards, and we continue to be extremely flattered by all of the interest we receive from writers and design lovers all over the world.

As we grow, our agenda remains the same; to create well made furniture with simple forms and with an eye for detail — designed and manufactured with the best materials entirely in the UK.

Craftsmanship &
Sustainability

For us, good craftsmenship and sustainability go hand in hand. All of our furniture is made lovingly by hand, so we are careful with materials at every stage of the process.

All of the timber that we use is from sustainable sources with either certification from Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) or Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC).

Sustainability is engrained in everything we do — making furniture that is designed to maintain its value and integrity for future generations is what underpins this.
