Max Rollitt is well regarded among his peers for having a unique eye for antiques. He originally trained as a furniture designer and maker, and was apprenticed to Frearson and Hewlett, an antique furniture restoration workshop supporting the top London trade. Since 1993, Max has run his own antique business – now located just outside the picturesque South Downs village of Avington – and he began creating his own range of furniture in 1998. Max took the next natural step of entering into the world of interior design in 2006, combining his skills to highly sought-after effect.

"It is rare that a year goes by without an interior by Max Rollitt gracing the pages of House & Garden. One of our 100 Top Designers, Max says he aims to make, 'joyful homes that are comfortable, elegant and interesting,' and this he definitely does." House & Garden
