Matthew Hilton

Building on theories of architectural functionalism pioneered by furniture makers like Hans Wegner and Finn Juhl, English designer Matthew Hilton revels in designing for not a buyer, but a user; his ultimate goal a solution rather than an object. Accordingly, Matthew Hilton pieces are delightfully simplistic, yet maintain an inherent degree of elegance. Having launched his own line in 2007, Hilton defies contemporary design conventions at every turn. Sofas feature meticulously tailored upholstery and wood case pieces—never boxy— expose wood’s intrinsic etherealness.
