Founded over 24 years ago, Matt Livsey Hammond Ltd have firmly established an impressive portfolio of work and an enviable international reputation as crafters of fine metalwork.
With a dazzling and eclectic catalogue of projects ranging from sweeping balustrades in palaces, hotels and private homes to bespoke furniture and lighting pieces which are sculptural in their detail and beauty, the company specialise in filigree work, curving balustrades, furniture, lighting, mirrors, interior gates and ornamentation.
All pieces are handmade to the highest standards combining traditional blacksmith arts, carving and casting methods with modern hi-tech production techniques where appropriate.
A wide range of metals can be worked including wrought and cast iron, steel, bronze, aluminium, copper and brass, incorporating other natural materials such as glass, wood, stone and precious stones where the design calls for it. A wide range of finishes is available including chemical patination, clear and coloured waxing, specialist paint finishing, gilding and plating.
Recent commissions have included elaborate curving balustrades for a French chateau, luxury Verbier chalet and magnificent Mayfair townhouse, along with finely sculptured super-sofas, interior gates and enormous steel, wood and glass cabinets for a London mansion. Recent commercial work has included ornate balustrading and bespoke chandeliers for a Venetian style restaurant in St James, Piccadilly. Current projects are varied and include a sweeping balustrade and gates for the grandest of villas in Kazakhstan, a solid bronze balustrade for a house on the Wentworth Estate, and an 80 metre balustrade for a mansion on the Bishop’s Avenue.
Matt and his specialised team of craftsmen are passionate about their work, and the trademark appearance is one of elegance, balance and fluidity. The detailed quality and artists’ attention to detail are evident in every piece of work, whether on the scale of the ornate baroque staircase balustrading commissioned for a palace, or the delicate filigree ornamentation ordered to complement a piece of furniture. The team’s enthusiasm and commitment are evident in every project, and they are delighted to have been commissioned to supply metalwork and furniture for some of the most exclusive properties in the UK and around the world.
