Drawing from his nearly 20 years of experience in the industry, Will approaches design with a seasoned eye and a healthy dose of irreverence. Growing up surrounded by a family of stylish women, Will was introduced to various art forms at a very young age. This early exposure to the highly creative served to inform his pathway to design. And although he didn’t initially pursue a career in the field—he graduated with a degree in environmental design—Will went on to work for several notable designers in San Francisco before founding his eponymous design house in 2000.
Widely recognized for his all-encompassing approach to the craft, Will conceives custom one-of-a-kind pieces and layered spaces rooted in rich life experiences. Drawing from his frequent travels and the natural world, he marries unexpected textures, colors, and materials with classic pieces and found objects to create immersive, eclectic environments.
In 2009, Will introduced another facet of his design business – Battersea. The retail showroom, named after a centuries old, now defunct power plant in South London, is situated in San Francisco’s storied Design Center.
He currently resides in Sausalito, CA with his wife, fellow designer and travel partner Jen Kelly, and their four children: Miles, Sabine, Luisa and Isabela.
