The L’Atelier Mata Furniture Company

L’Atelier Mata is more than a furniture company; it’s a tale of passion, craftsmanship, and creativity. Toby, a carpenter with over a decade of experience, and Nishma, who pursued a corporate career in London, founded L’Atelier Mata after an arduous journey in 2009. Despite their different backgrounds, they shared a deep love for furniture-making and a strong desire to create something exceptional. By combining their talents, they set out to craft furniture that was not only functional but also timeless and beautiful, making L’Atelier Mata more than a furniture company; it’s a tale of passion, craftsmanship, and creativity.

Today, L’Atelier Mata embodies the founders’ shared vision for exceptional furniture. They personally infuse each piece with their unwavering commitment to excellence, making it a reflection of their creative spirit. Their passion for crafting beautiful, functional furniture has resulted in a timeless and inspiring collection that people will cherish for years to come.

At our furniture company, we take pride in crafting pieces that we ourselves would be proud to own. Moreover, we obsess over every detail and use only the finest materials to refine our designs until they meet our high standards.

Our aesthetic exudes elegance and understatedness, the result of our tireless refinement and commitment to craftsmanship. We’re passionate about poetic design and creating beautiful, enduring pieces that inspire and aspire to be passed down through generations.

But it’s not just about the design; the production process is equally important to us. We work closely with family-run sawmills, interior designers, and architects to ensure that we meet an exceptional standard of quality. Every piece is crafted with meticulous attention to detail and finish.

Our furniture is versatile enough to complement any environment, from a cozy country cottage to a modern apartment. We’re proud to create pieces that people will treasure for years to come. Although we have our own vision for how our furniture can be used, we’re excited to see how our clients interpret and use it in unique and creative ways. Knowing that our furniture is appreciated and brings meaning to each owner brings us great joy.

Best of British Design

Handcrafted entirely in-house. It isn’t just wood either – the team design and craft all the table bases too.

A Sustainable Furniture Company

Environmentally sound. L’Atelier Mata are on a mission to restore our very own slice of ancient French woodland back to its former glory.


Included in the process along the way, from design to timber selection to aftercare – and sending lots of pictures from each stage to keep you updated.

Fully Bespoke & Customisable

We can accommodate your preferences for timber, size, or base if you like the style of a piece.

Family Values

Running a family-owned and family-run business is a special thing. Just as no two families are the same, in our opinion, neither should their table be.

Expert Delivery

We deliver furniture to your room, assemble it, and take away packaging at your convenience.


I was lucky enough to stumble across L'Atelier Mata's furniture comany online shop and contacted them to ask for a table for my kitchen. I was told to come and see the workshop before I bought the table just by looking at a picture online. When I arrived and saw the table I was absolutely blown away! The table is more like a piece of art. People who come over can’t help but stroke and stare at it.

Delivery was next day and the whole team at Mata were so helpful and delightful to work with from start to finish. When the table arrived I was so happy and had so many compliments that I decided to talk to Toby and ask him to make me another larger table for my dining room. I knew the colour and size I wanted and Toby sourced the wood and kept me in the loop throughout production. He was so helpful and was happy changing the legs when I wasn’t sure of the design of the legs that came with the table.

I am now the lucky owner of two stunning tables, we all get so much enjoyment from them and I’m sure they will be passed down to my children and grandchildren as they are so well made and beautiful.

I would highly recommend L'Atelier Mata they truly are impressive!!!
