About Us

Welcome to Matilda & The Metalman, Design Store & More. 

We’re absolutely dedicated to giving you the very best gifts & home wares, with a focus on the superior quality, functionality and of course gorgeousness!

​Founded in March 2016 by myself, Luisa & husband Glyn, Matilda & The Metalman has come a long way from its very humble beginnings. Motivating us was our move home after 18 years overseas and a need to refurbish our family home.​ What better way than to set up a store​ and immerse ourselves in the world of interiors and all that comes with it. With the support of Glyn and pure love of all things gorgeous our store is fast becoming the go-to store if your after something a little different. With my passion for beautiful but functional product & design combined with an aptitude to source unusual products not typically seen in gift/ interior stores, we have grown Matilda & The Metalman into a solid business.

Mid 2020 we took the next step and started selling online and offering interior consultancy service in the form of styling rooms. It was always going to be a natural progression when the timing was right. Now that we have recently moved into larger premises and have more offerings in the way of furniture etc , we have had the scope to able to take that next step even further. We now serve clients all over the country and are thrilled to be part of their journey to find the perfect gift or piece of furniture to finish a space.

We hope you enjoy our products as much as we enjoy offering them to you. If you have any questions or comments, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
