Matthew Williamson

Matthew Williamson is an award-winning, British interior designer known predominantly for his unique use of pattern and colour. Having begun his illustrious career in fashion under his namesake brand for over 20 years, Matthew has drawn on his decades of experience and pivoted seamlessly into the world of interior design. Alongside his growing residential and commercial design portfolio, Matthew has also launched a series of homeware collections in collaboration with John Lewis, Pooky, Roome London, Obeetee and more.  

Growing up in Manchester in the 1970s, Matthew’s passion for colour, aesthetics and design was catalysed by his Mother. Her refined taste and discerning purchases were defined by a set of principles that Matthew cites to this day in his work. Intelligent use of colour, pattern and optimism informed not only his Mother’s wardrobe but also his childhood home. “The pride my Mother took in the way she dressed herself and her home has illuminated to me the potency of the joy of design. Putting an outfit or a room together that brings a smile to your face and the faces of others is the objective in any project I undertake.” His education and passion for design bubbled to a head in 1994 when he graduated from Central Saint Martins with a BA Hons 2:1 in Fashion and Textile Design.
