TOP 9 + TOP 3
Caitlin Wilson is an interior designer who started up her company Caitlin Wilson Design in 2007. Her designs are inspired by the travels around the world, as well as with her husband’s job which took them to London, Dubai and Hong Kong. She founded her business on classic design principles, that atheistic is sophisticated and unique but not limited to one style. She not only creates her own collections but also works to embrace each of her client’s personalities to help them make their homes the best they possibly can be. Her style is to create brightly coloured textiles and she does this so well to create her different collections.
When starting up her company she moved to Hong Kong for 6 months and saw the perfect opportunity to explore the idea of textile design so went to the fabric district and walked door to door to see if anyone could print a small sample batch of her patterns. After searching she finally found a company that could print small batches for her instead of mass batch orders with sometimes-poor quality. One of her biggest tasks was to then find a company that would then manufacture her designs to a high standard, so in the end decided to get the sewing done in the US, at a factory near her studio. Unlike a lot of the designers I have looked that Caitlin Wilson really tries to incorporate high-end pieces and great bargain finds into her room designs to make her products affordable to a bigger market.
