About

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 bespoke 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.

 

Current Vacancies

ANTIQUES MANAGER

Full-time (part-time / flexible hours considered)
Salary dependent on experience

An exciting opportunity has arisen at Max Rollitt for an Antiques Manager to join a small, dynamic team working within the context of interiors, furniture design and antiques.

You will have at least 3 years' industry experience, a passion for antiques and be highly organised, so as to effectively manage the end-to-end journey of an antique from acquisition to sale.

You will be a critical member of the team working closely with Max, managing our ever-changing stock and inventory system, working with the interiors team on assigning antiques for key projects, and managing the movement of antiques from auction houses to restorers and through to their final destination with our clients.

We need someone who can multi-task, all the while having an excellent eye for detail and quality, and with the ability to build rapport with a whole host of people, from suppliers to private interiors clients.

Max Rollitt is a leading interior designer, furniture maker and antique dealer based just one hour from London in the beautiful Hampshire countryside near Winchester. The role is based at our Yavington Barn offices and showroom.

"All the best dealers have their own style, and Max Rollitt’s is distinctive. He has an infallible eye for line and proportion, a bold sense of scale, and a leaning towards furnishings that are classical and architectural. 'Authenticity and craftsmanship are important,’ he says, ‘but so are less quantifiable qualities such as originality, purity of line, and balance. Above all, a piece of furniture should be beautiful.' Which is why, although he may cast a critical eye over thousands of items every week, he is likely only to buy two or three of them."
