Timorous Beasties

Internationally acclaimed, famously irreverent design brand, Timorous Beasties, was established in 1990 by Alistair McAuley and Paul Simmons, who met studying textile design at Glasgow School of Art. From humble beginnings, Timorous Beasties has gone from strength-to-strength over the past three decades; it now has showrooms in Glasgow, London and​ Berlin, as well as multiple awards and prestigious accolades to its name.

Famed for its unique wallpaper and textile collections that redefine tradition, Timorous Beasties’ Glasgow-based design and print studio is a diverse operation. As well as one-off designs to furnish both the interiors and exteriors of residential and commercial spaces, the brand has also created a breadth of bespoke projects, encompassing everything from an exclusive bottle design for Johnnie Walker’s Blue Label whiskey (2019) to an exclusive artwork for Kate Bush’s ‘Before The Dawn’ tour (2015).  ​
