Neisha Crosland

Neisha's wallpaper and fabrics

UK textile designer Neisha Crosland is a breath of fresh air for the interiors industry. As a designer she isn't afraid of colour or large bold designs that take over a room, she designs from the heart and it shows.

All of Neisha's designs start off as paintings and drawings on canvas. As a textile designer with a fine art background, I can relate to this process and can see how it influences the end result.
This process makes her work standout amongst her competitors as youthful and creative.

Neisha's bold and outgoing sense of design have won multiple design awards. The Victoria and Albert Museum also collect her work and we are lucky to have her designs in our Mokum showrooms.

To me, Mokum and Neisha's design process and aesthetics are very much the same. Together we compliment one another and hopefully inspire interior designers to push the boundaries and use pattern more within interiors.


The Sydney Powerhouse Museum is holding the annual Sydney Design Festival with a wide array of presentations and workshops involving all things design. Our design studio team received a good insight into intellectual property rights and the importance of protecting creative ideas and designs during a presentation from industry insiders last Thursday evening. Stephanie Tully, who is the head of customer experience design at Qantas, gave us a sneak preview of what new design innovations Qantas has developed to stay ahead of competitors and how they need to protect their creative inventions to keep their advantage. Have a look at the Sydney Design website to see what else is happening.
