Andrew Martin’s Interior Design Review celebrates the high art of interior design. This annual review catalogues today’s innovation in design and illustrates social and political movements as well as aesthetic trends that have made an impact over the last two decades.

Volume 23 of the review accompanies the founder Martin Waller’s awards programme, which was launched in 1996.

The award, sometimes dubbed “the Oscars of the design world”, is now in its 23rd year.

Listed within the catalogue is a list of 2019’s 100 greatest interior designers, showcasing their projects on an international stage.

A panel of celebrity judges – featuring, among others, Professor Gerry McGovern, chief design officer for Land Rover, and Olympic gold medallist Lord Sebastian Coe – is tasked with selecting one winner from the 100-strong shortlist.

Among the highly commended designers are Matthew Williamson, Hollie Bowden, Ben Wu and Jimmie Martin.

Previous winners include Kelly Hoppen, Kit Kemp, Rose Uniacke, Martyn Lawrence-Bullard and Axel Vervoordt.

The 2019 winner will be announced in November.
