Established by Quakers in 1929 to combat chronic unemployment in the Welsh town of Brynmawr, the company started with twelve untrained cabinet makers and one talented designer in Paul Matt. His furniture was simple and sturdy, as befits the Quaker philosophy as well as the fact that his staff was initially unskilled. Yet they and the company developed quickly and throughout the 1930s the furniture was sold successfully in English and Welsh department stores. Unfortunately, manpower and raw material shortages during the war ended the enterprise.
We are currently out of Brynmawr furniture.
