Casa Shops: Timorous Beasties

Lately, I've been showing you some cool lamps that have been sporting dullsville shades. I was thrilled to recently spot a cure to this problem with a wow-factor pink-and-brown patterned shade in the recent Casa Cravings, submitted by TeamSugar member Freshpink. The shade is from the Glasgow, Scotland-based store Timorous Beasties.

To find out more about this store, and to see some of their great products, just


The name Timorous Beasties comes from the Robert Burns poem. "To a Mouse."

Noted for its surreal and provocative textiles and wallpapers, the design studio Timorous Beasties was founded in Glasgow in 1990 by Alistair McAuley and Paul Simmons, who had met while studying textile design at Glasgow School of Art. By depicting uncompromisingly contemporary images on traditional textiles and wallpapers, Timorous Beasties has defined an iconoclastic style of design once described as “William Morris on acid.”
