Fusion interiors – the idea that it is the world around us that inspires our living spaces – is central to the Andrew Martin philosophy. Which is why, when customers walk into the flagship showroom in South Kensington, they find themselves surrounded by a signature mix of African artefacts, tribal textiles and Asian antiques jostling against colourful pop art, digital LED light screens and futuristic space age influences. Founded in 1978 by product and interior designer Martin Waller (‘I started the business because I fell in love with the theatre of retail’), the brand is renowned for its multi-layered, theatrical approach to design and highly original collections. Over the years the whole world has stumbled through the doors of Andrew Martin, from Kate to Kylie and Princess Leia to President Sarkozy. Designers from every continent have made it their go-to toolbox. Andrew Martin has organised the Interior Designer of the Year Award since 1996 (‘the Oscars of the Interior Design world’) and published 23 editions of the company’s Interior Design Review, underlining its credentials as a global design authority.
