Podesta specialists in handmade furniture, design and custom-make for every room of the home including kitchens, bedrooms, libraries, studies and home cinemas.
Freestanding furniture commissions are also undertaken so that Podesta can provide perfect home solutions for the discerning customer.
It was while working as a freelance furniture designer for companies such as Habitat, Tom Dixon, Smallbone and Mark Wilkinson that Matt Podesta realised his true potential.
Matt founded Podesta in 2002 with the aim to create the finest furniture that is â€œas individual as the client and their property. Each piece of furniture is created with thoughtful design and has a timeless quality that means it will last a lifetimeâ€¦ or more.â€
His designs are functional yet creative, innovative yet timeless â€“ qualities that are key to designing and producing commercially viable bespoke furniture.
Working directly with the client and their interior designer or architect, Podesta undertakes projects of all sizes and styles, ranging from entire houses through to dining tables or even bar stools.
The woods used are all purchased from major UK timber suppliers, to ensure that they have been carefully selected from trees that are responsibly harvested and, where possible, Podesta use acrylic paints instead of oil based.
Podesta has five UK workshops, working with some of the most skilled cabinet-makers in the country. They all invest personal attention and emotion into each project and will often be on site to install their creations.
Podesta also has a team of interior designers, architects, flooring and timber specialists, stonemasons and lighting engineers, enabling them to handle a project from start to finish.
Matt is a liveryman in the Worshipful Company of Furniture Makers. The tradition dates from the 12th century and membership of the Livery is recognition of Podestaâ€™s quality design and craftsmanship.
