A Note From Matt

“When I was a boy, I often accompanied my mum to the supermarket to ‘help’ with the weekly shop (i.e. decant choc ices into the trolley while she wasn’t looking). On one occasion, I needed a new toothbrush, and we spent several minutes in the toiletries aisle assessing the colour, material and ergonomics of each model. This experience really stuck with me. William Morris famously said, ‘Have nothing in your houses that you do not know to be useful or believe to be beautiful,’ and I couldn’t agree more.”
