The majority of their pieces made today are commissioned – when placing a commission you have an extensive choice from a wide range of frames, fabrics, and finishes.
With their furniture, there is a rare consistency of sophisticated pieces combined with a sexy, modern design element. Unlike other design companies, the scale is a factor that is not thought of in the usual measures, as work varies from Jimmie Martin‘s own award-winning custom made one-off pieces to larger scaled unique environments that meet the demands of the client to the exact specifications. Projects range from residential to commercial environments and individual pieces with a high-end design at the forefront of all their work. They are notorious for creating innovative designs that have attracted a commendable list of celebrity clientele from the likes of Madonna to Royalty.
Hayche asked Jimmie Martin what inspired them to be interior designers. “I’ve been creative from a very young age, one of my earliest memories was constantly changing the layout of my house when growing up much to my families dismay. I feel that being able to come back to a home that you feel relaxed comfortable and excited about makes a huge difference to someone’s life and I love being a part of that transformation. I treat Interior design as another form of art. My canvas is the rooms and my paints the furniture and accessories.”

Different from the others, Jimmie Martin develop a relationship with their clients: “I value the personal relationship with my clients. They are not just buying into a scheme. A lot of my clients are now my friends and I feel you really need to get to know someone to be able to deliver a project you can both be proud of. I love to inject color and life into space and am not afraid of breaking rules and putting colors and patterns together that shouldn’t work. ”
“Back in 2005, we won the best new designer at the Design & Decoration awards which put us on the map and set a trend for bringing old furniture back and really kicking off the up-cycling that you see everywhere now, something that we are really proud of. Being able to breathe new life into something that may have been forgotten still excites us. We are constantly evolving and taking inspiration from our everyday life and experiences which we embody into our designs in both our furniture and interiors.”
Love Hurts chairs
Jimmie Martin is known for its trademark custom pieces of furniture: a beautiful blend of traditional (often Baroque) with edgy, controversial and very rock & roll designs – and their pieces include bespoke tables and chairs, cushions, wallpaper, mirror and some truly unforgettable lamps. Jimmie Martin‘s clients are as glamorous and diverse as their designs: Kylie Minogue, Kelly Osbourne, Liam Gallagher, Pete Townshend, The Prodigy and Madonna – who commissioned Jimmie Martin to design an elaborate ‘throne’ for her half time performance during one of the biggest sporting events in the US – Superbowl.
