Matthew Raw created a spectacular addition to his Welcome Collection, further developing the series of hand-crafted tile clad furniture. The detail of the cabinet’s design is a product of Matthew’s love and commitment to the versatility of the tile, with each one individually hand-made and glazed by Matthew to cover and wrap around the surface and interior of the cabinet. Featuring bottle shelves, a large open drawer, glass hanging rails and a mirrored rear panel, this product is available in bespoke variations and can be customised to suit any space.
This product is available in bespoke size variations and glaze colours, please enquire for further details.
The Welcome collection is inspired by the traditional adorning of interiors and exteriors of Britain's railway stations for 150 years where tiles were utilised for their intrinsic functionality to cover large and irregular surfaces and their ability to be wiped clean in the era of the coal-hungry, steam trains. Stations were also transitory spaces, welcoming people each and everyday, and still are to this day. Drawing on this legacy, Matthew wanted to develop a functional piece entirely clad with tiles that would also intrigue and welcome someone when they arrived home, thus playing with themes of familiarity and nostalgia.

All of the tiles are handmade – rolled, dried, fired and glazed - by Matthew in his studio. Matthew worked with Manchester-based furniture maker, Greg Wilson, to develop the original cupboard design and allow the 12cm x 5cm tiles to flow over its surfaces, inside and out. This Olive glaze is part of a new collection of glazes for the Welcome Collection, please enquire for options.
