Our Story

m.a.d furniture design was founded by long-time friends Matt Cole and Dan Given. Both have worked in Asia for over 10 years developing furniture and managing the supply chains for large US and European retailers. While proud of their work for others, they wanted to create products that they would be happy to put in their own homes.

In 2010, while having dinner with American designer Mark Daniel, the idea was thrown out that all 3 should pool their talents – Matt as managing director, Dan as technical director, and Mark as creative director – and create a company of their own. Truly an international collaboration, m.a.d. (which stands for Matt and Dan) was created to fill a void in the market place – original, high quality, modern furniture that is actually affordable.
