Summer days linger, ripe and luscious. Windows usher bright beams inside and the outdoors beckon, their vivid greens a tangle of adventure and midsummer serenity.

We are inclined towards an alternative, multi-dimensional approach to design. With nature our limitless source and Scotland our playground. Nature is epitomised in a spectrum of greens across our Wild Wilderness collection, redefining perception of the earthy, natural aesthetics upon which the natural Scottish environment has long been defined.

Moors and meadows inspire mesmerising geometrics within Pasture. Towering glasshouses amass with vibrant colour, waxy texture and veined osmosis cultivate Tropics. Woodland flora stimulates the lush, canopying phantasmagoria within Forest Floor and Entangle.

Carry the outside indoors.

Glasgow is a city streaming with life and colour. The friendly faces cascade along narrow lanes, holding a contagious quality. The smiles and streets intertwine to lead any wanderer into a world of curiosity. Our city provides us with a bustling music scene, abundance of hip cafes and eccentric independent stores. Red Door Interiors encapsulates the creative qualities of Glasgow, and here at Iona Crawford we are proud to stand with them in supplying products of luxury and innovation.

The charming interior store is located on the cusp of Glasgow’s West End, and features an array of riches for the eyes to feast upon. Their services cover creative interior design from concept to completion. Lead by designer Lisa Trainer, Red Door holds the capacity to ignite a passion for distinctive character in planning the creation of your own fantasy world to live in.

A carefully curated selection of our wallcoverings and fabrics can be found within the store, set within a myriad of imagination and flourishing capacity. Here you are able to visualise our prints and patterns liberated within the context of the showroom, harmoniously positioned alongside a plethora of diverse interior brands. When it is time to take the plunge and renovate or enhance your home, this is a sure sanctuary in finding new avenues amongst Glasgow’s finest creations in art and interiors.

Inspired by the beautiful old doors assembled by Iona's farmer father to protect his newborn lambs from the elements, the Secret Door Collection evolved from an arts series made during a Spring spell in the lambing shed.

Fruits of the Scottish elements, the series interprets the rusting, crackling, decaying beauty, and the honest purpose of the doors. The delicate, tactile surface sensitive to their purpose as a sheild for the precious lives behind.

Whipping up breakfast with this guy watching over is a recipe for the fluffiest pancakes and dreamiest eggs. Like an trusty old friend, Finn has grown with us. Beginning life as an enormous painted canvas, the original artwork depicting his majestic stature now hangs within a client's London townhouse.

Finn's legacy lives on, existing in printed form to journey across continents and through time zones. Capturing the highland hearts and interior imaginations of many a rogue.

Upon luscious luxe velvet to adorn a headboard, faithful armchair or curtain cascade. Decadently dark wall covering exuding soul, richness and refined eccentricity within a familiar surround.

Mystery, intrigue and discovery form the foundations for so many design concepts. Inspired by exploration and challenged perceptions with a sprinkling of satire.  

Why would you adorn the walls of a dark, eerie basement space with tactile, whimsical wallpaper inspired by an entanglement of secret garden hose pipes.... Then again, why wouldn't you?

The mid point in a project. Dust casting a veil over every surface, plaster encrusted on your favourite old trainers and energy levels flagging. Like any half way juncture in a momentous endeavour - although it may involve a little imagination and a push of the pause button - clutching a window to breath it all in, reflect on the evolution and bask in the glory of what's soon to unfold, well, it's a precious, fleeting moment.

A decade, ten years, 315 360 000 seconds and a cornucopia of colourful adventures, magnificently inspiratonal introductions, Champagne popping lightbulb moments - each with a bright tale of their own effervescence - and more stationary malfuncions than you could shake a Sharpie at. Our brand has blossomed and evolved, aquainting itself with a host of diverse industries and exceptional individuals. Now, at the first gas station on the highway to wherever the world of contemporary design and creative expression takes us, we are perusing the muticolour carnival of colour on the shelves and filling our glove box with rhubarb and custards, pink shrimps, salted caramel dark chocolate everything, and the finest bottled water to ever be branded as Scottish.

Edging ever closer to a decade behind the wheel of our zero gravity, intricately hand stitched, E-Type inspired mode of transport, the most valuable lesson learned has been the joy found in diversity and discovery. Embracing the innovative and the timeless, transforming challenges into skills most familiar, and staying true to our values as we go.

At this juncture, it struck as the perfect time to refurbish our exterior and inject our engines with all the newfangled nuggets of goodness required for the next leg, via a plethora of magnificent ports along the way. It is, therefore, with exceptional excitement, and technical wizardry in abundance in the hands of our skilled web developers, we are delighted to unveil our shiny new website.

Coming very soon will be the addition of the Iona Crawford Atelier aspect of our website where industry clients, brand partners and inquisitive souls alike can explore our project portfolio and find out more about the many diverse aspects of our design consultancy.

In the meantime, hop behind the controls and take our baby for a spin. We'd love to hear what you think.
