About US

MKW Design has pioneered several ways to upgrade those humble personal photos into installation pieces. The oeuvre is clear - some memories deserve more. ​

Every design is bespoke, and hand crafted in the UK. The timber is FSC-approved, and the fabric sourced from the finest mills in the world. ​​

And across the range, the images are replaceable. As life evolves so can the pieces, to be updated with new moments, celebrations and experiences. ​

MKW Design was founded by Richard Williamson. He was the guy who wanted every moment to be just right – famously adding dishware to his buddies’ late-night pizza sessions, or going to college lectures wearing a tweed sports jacket. ​

MKW Design is the design division of McKay Williamson, an art gallery in London. In Richards insatiable desire to make everything ‘just right’, he has re-invented the way we look at the humble photo collection. ​

Many interior designers avoid them - both for aesthetic reasons and also because many photos just aren’t strong enough to be publicly displayed. ​

Richard realised that with creativity and photoshop the photos could be improved, and that with good design, the images could become a focal point – raising the bar creatively so the images would deserve to sit beside the illustrious artists he represents.
