An itinerant connoisseur of culture and craft, Martin Waller has been at the forefront of interior design for over 40 years. A pioneer of the travel inspired aesthetic, the Britisher has ensured that Andrew Martin, his 1978-established home furnishings brand, continues to set the industry standard year after year. The brand’s showroom is a fusion of stories—a theatre for the world’s kaleidoscope of hidden cultures, eras and origins that romanticise travel. Nicknamed the ‘Indiana Jones of Design’ for his sourcing and designing trips to faraway places—which translate into a seamless mix of comfort and escapism in his collections—Waller is also the publisher of 23 editions of the Interior Design Review. The voluminous books document the ever changing global design environment, and are supplemented by the Interior Design Awards, which is founded by Waller to bring attention to interiors. He is also responsible for designing hotels, including the Mandarin Oriental Hong Kong, Marbella Club and El Lodge in Spain, film sets (Gladiator, Tomb Raider, Harry Potter, Christopher Robin, etc) as well as a number of private residences. His clientele includes Victoria Beckham, Tom Ford and Samantha Cameron, wife of former UK prime minister David Cameron, who have often been spotted in the iconic Walton Street showroom.
