Meet the Team



Matthew Hurst – Sales Manager

Matthew has been working in furniture retail since leaving university over 30 years ago. He has an extensive knowledge of all our furniture, and especially the bespoke options, and sources many of the ranges in our showroom.  Matthew also arranges all deliveries and takes great pride in ensuring all customers receive the items they requested, when they need them – and in perfect condition. 

When he is not at work, Matthew sings with City of Truro male choir, plays samba, and is often found at St Agnes Head as a member of the Coastwatch team, ensuring people stay safe on our coasts.


Alison Hurst

Alison, wife of Matthew and mother of Jono, is responsible for all of the office duties, but is often found in the showroom advising on shop displays and colour schemes.  Alison has been an integral part of the team since the store opened, and her eye for colour and style is much valued, by customers and staff alike! 

Alison sings in a local church choir and also plays samba.


Jono Hurst

Jono is central to the company, in charge of all goods coming and going from the premises.  From unloading suppliers’ trucks to delivering to customers’ homes, he is professional, knowledgeable, and a perfectionist.  He is happiest while assembling furniture, though he also designs our advertisements and updates our website. 

He is a keen inline skater.


Andrew Thompson

Andrew is a key member of staff, the other half of our delivery and warehousing team.  Andrew is the company’s IT expert, as well as covering for Matthew in the showroom.  Matthew and Andrew met whilst working for Dingles, 30 years ago, doing many of the same jobs they do today.  As Jono’s Godfather, Andrew is very much part of the family team.

In summer, Andrew is an avid lawn bowls player, whilst in winter he is often found mending computers.
