Timorous Beasties has just launched its first retail shop outside of Glasgow in London, next door to the brand's existing trade showroom.

Founders, Alistair McAuley and Paul Simmons, have been designing and manufacturing luxury wallpapers and fabrics from a Glasgow warehouse since 1990.

The brand's eye-catching designs now adorn everything from bedroom walls at upmarket London hotel Claridge’s to windows at the Supreme Court to specially commissioned designs that are sold at recently refurbished The Royal Opera House shop in Covent Garden.
