About Us

Scottish textile designer Wendy Morrison is the founder of her eponymous brand Wendy Morrison Design known for creating extraordinary rugs, wonder walls and fabulous fabrics full of texture, patterns, and colours. With an outward-looking approach and curious nature, Wendy takes inspiration from an eclectic range of sources - chinoiserie, art history and colour, in particular the way colour can evoke feelings and emotions as well as nature and its connections to life and the wider world.

Authentic rug-making demands incredible skill, craftsmanship and attention to detail. Wendy Morrison wants to protect those skills, to support the artisans who tuft and weave, and bring the designs to life, to share the history and storytelling behind rug design, and to celebrate and help maintain this highly skilled craftsmanship.

Wendy Morrison celebrates the craftsmanship of rug making through her collection of handmade rugs sharing stories that resonate and connect, inspire and delight. These are also made into highly-detailed and elegant wallcoverings and fabric which bring colour, pattern, inspiration and joy to the home. Wendy’s voluptuous rugs and hand-embroidered wall hangings are modern-day heirloom that tells its own story, designed to last a lifetime and more and can be passed on from one generation to the next, binding together Wendy’s beliefs of sustainability, emotional design and longevity.

Whilst their studio is based in Edinburgh, 2023 marked the start of an exciting time for the brand, with the opening of their first London showroom at Design Centre, Chelsea Harbour. On show is an eclectic and exciting mix of the brand’s favourite designs across their range of products.

How would you describe your style?

"Wendy’s love of colour, nature and Asian philosophy is very clear to see in her designs. Her style is eclectic, very much composed of what she likes and what makes her smile. “I don’t follow any rules or themes other than my own, a style that makes me smile and others that may visit, warm and welcoming."

"Our aim is to create rugs that our customers absolutely adore. We want them to find a rug that makes your room feel special and complete, and adds a little bit of joy every time you look at it, which is why we offer a Custom Rug Service.

A custom rug is designed specifically for a particular space. Whether that requires a larger or different-shaped rug, or a tweak to the colour or design elements, we can create a rug that is perfect for the space.

Working with small workshops and talented artisans in India and Nepal means we are not tied to mass-market production schedules. We have the time and creativity to customise individual hand-made rugs, which opens up a world of exciting possibilities. 

Our Custom Service has been used to create rugs for vast staircases, banquet-friendly dining rooms, spacious cinema rooms and oddly-shaped interior spaces."
