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 interesting, unusual & unique.

​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 wee business.

We feel we are now ready to take the next step and it was always going to be a natural progression to start selling online. We now serve customers all over the place 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.


Luisa & Glyn


The head of the ship. Down to earth and always happy to chat. Luisa loves beautiful but functional products and has a lot of fun sourcing products for the store. She is the contact point for all inquiries, oversees all aspects of running the store & website.

Diane started in June 2016 and is the face you will see if you are passing through Fairlie every other weekend. Di keeps us super organised and helps source stock on buying trips. She always has the store looking beautifully clean and tidy, and loves interacting with our customers.
