Grand Designs Magazine Features Natasha Marshall Fabrics & Home – February 2016 issue. The house showcases their Ikon fabrics throughout.
‘Both myself and Neil are design and architecture nuts! We have designed and built both our Studio and Home in collaboration with architect friends, cameronwebster and both buildings have won prestigious architectural awards. The properties are situated in the West End of Glasgow and showcase our own fabrics and wallpapers throughout. Both properties were created from derelict buildings we had found down lanes in Glasgow that had ben left unloved.
Our aim is to add pattern and colour into the home and work interiors through curtains, blinds and soft furnishings and to create a beautiful, calm and peaceful environment. Our combined expertise in textiles and graphic design saw us create iconic designs from 1997 for our in-house collections including Plectrum, Drift, Always, Blossom and Beanstalk which are still very popular today. These collections had been selling very successfully under license worldwide until 2008. For the last 10 years, we have designed collections for other major UK and European fabric brands, but now last year felt that the time was right for us to return to our passion and launch our own iconic collections. When building our house we could not find any fabrics we liked as much as our original collections so 2015 saw the launch of our own Natasha Marshall studio collections. The Ikon Collection we used throughout our home includes many of the most popular designs Drift, Plectrum, Always, Beanstalk, Billow and Blossom. Whilst the Alegre Collection comprises new designs. With Tandem wallpapers ranges complimenting both ranges. All Natasha Marshall Collections are all stocked in the new Glasgow Studio and we aim to provide excellent customer service, with no minimum order quantities and prompt order fulfilment whilst showcasing the best of British design and manufacturing’.
