Timorous Beasties

Timorous Beasties

Timorous Beasties was established in Glasgow in 1990 by Alistair McAuley and Paul Simmons, who met studying textile design at Glasgow School of Art. Today, the studio is a diverse operation and has emerged as a multi-award-winning, internationally acclaimed icon. Timorous Beasties’ work embodies a unique diversity of pattern, ranging from design that echoes a golden age of copperplate engraving (a time-honoured classic is the Thistle range; or Merian Palm superwide wallpaper) to examples of a distinctly edgy nature, an elegant transgression, a display of chic irreverence.

  • Graffiti All Over Velvet Fabric

    £160.00 /m
    original

    The Graffiti designs take Timorous Beasties’ anarchic approach to pattern to new heights and brings the raw energy of street art indoors. Paint daubs, drips and sprays that are a familiar sight on grimy back streets are translated into riotous patterns applied to wallpapers, textiles and lampshades. This velvet fabric will introduce a maximalist element to any space and creates a playful contrast when used to upholster traditional furnishings.
    Timorous Beasties fabrics are supplied in full metre increments only.

  • Totem Damask Wallpaper

    £335.00
    black-blue
    cardinal-red
    gilded-grey
    irish-lichen
    moine-brown
    pickled-quince
    pine-forest-green
    rum-raisin
    sunflower-yellow

    Totem Damask is a kaleidoscopic synthesis of arabesques, splats and florals, structured around a geometric ‘digital’ stem. For all the exuberance and intricacies it embodies, the pattern dispenses with horizontal repeat so that the single ten-metre repeat can be hung randomly without compromising its unity. Familiar yet surprising, Totem Damask epitomises Timorous Beasties’ radical approach to pattern. Digitally printed.
    Sold as a 10 metre roll. Printed to order, 4-6 weeks lead time.
