Waller's fabric and wallpaper designs, based around global
cultures, became the template for Fusion Interiors, which was the
title of his bestselling design book in 2000.
In 1996, Waller started the Andrew Martin International Interior
Designer of the Year Award. The Award has become the 'Oscars of the
design world' (Sunday Times) and the accompanying annual Interior
Design Review 'the Bible of interior design'. The award is judged
by a panel of distinguished judges that has included Jo Malone, Tim
Rice, Thandie Newton and Gordon Ramsey. Amongst the winners are
Axel Vervoordt, Kelly Hoppen and Martyn Lawrence Bullard.
Waller has been involved in a huge variety of design projects
all over the world, including trains, yachts and movies. Much of
his inspiration is derived from his travels and adventures. Dubbed
'the Indiana Jones of design', Waller has hunted for mammoth in
Siberia, traded with head hunters in Nagaland and searched for lost
cities in the jungles of Guatemala. In 2007, he captained the
England team to the Elephant Polo World Championships in Nepal.
Waller has produced 23 books, appeared on television in the UK,
US, China, India, Russia and the Middle East. He has written
extensively about travel for a variety of magazines, including the
Financial Times. He has also served on the advisory boards of
Molton Brown and KLC Design School.
