About Cottswood Interiors

The Team at Cottswood

Cottswood has been a leader in inspiring Edmonton’s most beautiful, functional, fabulous homes for over 30 years. Cottswood was founded by Sue Martin originally offering décor, gifts and antiques, which lead to a gradual expansion to larger pieces of furniture and eventually occupying multiple units in High Street on 102nd Avenue. Eventually the name of the store was updated to Cottswood, (derived from Sue’s origins in the Cottswolds in England). Overtime, Cottswood established a reputation as one of the most prominent sources for some of the best know furniture brands internationally, we are Northern Alberta's source for the highest quality furnishings.

When Sue was ready to retire and was looking for a succession plan, she met a local retailer and entrepreneur named Matt Singer.  The fit was perfect and the next generation of Cottswood’s leadership had begun.

With over 3 decades of history, thousands of completed homes and happy customers, we are privileged to be able to continue as a locally-owned and operated business, and we look forward to the opportunity to continue to assist Northern Albertans for many more years to come. We are proud of our work, our people and our community.

At Cottswood it's personal.

Allison Hardy

Senior Design Consultant

I like to think of my own home as a retreat from the outside world. I gravitate towards organic textures and colours.

At Cottswood we're on top of what's new and interesting in the industry. We have that perfect balance of being up on trends while still honoring the classics.

When working with new clients, I take note of their reactions to different pieces as they walk through the store. It gives me an idea of their personality and sense of style. We build off that.

Anastasia Baikova

Design Consultant

I received a Bachelor's of Design and Fine Arts in Eastern Europe. I've always been inspired by people and their homes, so I truly love what I do. My keys to successful projects are balance and harmony. I enjoy finding my clients beautiful and quality-made furniture that will be part of their lives for years to come.

Christopher Cook

Design Consultant

When looking at a room I first seek out the intention and function of how you use your space? Comfort is critical so exploring our showroom to find that perfect upholstery or mattress is so important. Lastly, we tie everything together from our showroom discoveries with a pleasing aesthetic through style, stain colour, fabric and leather selection.  

Function flows through to an effective floor plan that relates each piece to scale and proportion and that to the room. My biggest aspiration is that the room reflects you and so the goal is to capture and interpret your personality and turn it into a beautiful environment for you to enjoy.

Dean Wiens

Design Consultant

My personal aesthetic is traditional. Although, it used to be modern so it’s a bit of a mix, you could call it "transitional." I like things that mean something, things that have history. I think it’s important to bring those items into your home.

Change is good and working through the right plan for you is all apart of the process. We'll work together to get to a finished product that you're proud of.

When we work together – you can count on being happy with the end result. 

Kristi Kingdon

Design Consultant
Creating beautiful and comfortable spaces has been my passion since I was very young. I have a visceral memory of walking into a beautifully appointed home; the way it made me feel, the warmth and comfort it offered while utilizing the space efficiently and stylishly. I hope to impart that feeling on every project, whether it's a full home furnishing project or the addition of one key piece.
 
Great design starts with great relationships. I listen carefully to your wants and needs to find the best solution for you. Your home should be a reflection of your style and personality and I'd like to help you maximize it to its fullest potential.

Janey McCurdy

Design Consultant
My personal aesthetic is eclectic. I love vibrant colour and I love interesting and unique pieces that spark comment and conversation. I am a believer of "if you love it, it works", and I believe you should surround yourself with things you love and bring you joy.
 
My role as a design consultant is to help you express yourself and create comfortable spaces to enjoy with family and friends or privately.
 
Whether your project is small or large, I am happy to help. As I see it, my role is to be creative resource, advisor and problem solver.

Matt Singer

Owner

"My family has been in retail for four generations. My great grandfather came from New York and opened a furniture business in Edmonton over 100 years ago. Since then, my family has been retailers in fashion and sporting goods. I grew up learning from the great mentors, who taught me that retail is fine balance of great relationships between customers, sales people, suppliers and the community at large.

Cottswood started 30 years ago and it's a local success story that I’m proud to be a part of. I’ve always been interested in furniture as a customer and design aficionado

One of the things that I love about this great company is the people. We offer complimentary design services and bring in the best products from around the world. Our team does an amazing job of filling our clients' homes with wonderful designer furniture that is well made, comfortable and expresses their personality.

It’s not just furniture - it’s personal."
