David Mason Design celebrates 60 years

This year DMD is proud to be celebrating its Diamond Anniversary, with founder and chairman David Cowan also turning 90.

The Cowan family has a rich history in the housewares industry. David founded DMD in 1962 and his father Julian founded Cole and Mason in 1919. DMD continues to stay in the family to this day, with sons Nicholas and Richard leading the way as company directors.

Throughout his career, David has been spearheading innovation in the housewares industry. In the 50s he introduced the first spice jar set, in the 70s the first acrylic clear pepper mill and in the 80s he pioneered the outdoor living category and worked with Disney to bring ‘licensed housewares’ into the mix.

When asked what he is most proud of, David stated: “My contribution to the housewares industry behind the scenes and that our family business is respected around the world.”

Over the past 20 years, DMD has grown to include premium dining, kitchen and tableware. The company now has a Hong Kong office and continues to have an amazing team in Derbyshire that works behind the scenes to bring customers beautiful trend-led products.
