outhern Living Magazine has chosen Red Rickshaw owner and designer Scott Williams to join the Southern Living Design Network.

Scott Williams
When Scott Williams opened “The Red Rickshaw” in Oriental twelve years ago, the interior design shop specialized in casually elegant designs. In the shop where the Trawl Door had once stood, you could find furniture and decor in Carolina Lowcountry style that both stood out… and invited you to sit down and use it.

The Red Rickshaw has evolved in the past decade. Scott is particularly enthusiastic about “concept to completion” services he provides to customers. As the name implies, “concept to completion” has the design company partnering- at the beginning of projects – with architects, builders and artisans. Whether clients are having a new home built or renovating an existing one, Williams makes the case for having a designer’s eye at the table at the get-go and throughout the process. It helps give a home a “look” and even more so, a vision.

Taking in some Southern Living, the Red Rickshaw’s Cindy Shockley and Scott Williams.

Scott Williams says he’s “humbled and excited” to be tapped to be part of the Southern Living Design Network. The magazine set up the network so that its readers could find “vetted, certified design members” who meet the “standards and style of Southern Living and Coastal Living magazines’ brands.”

Inside The Red Rickshaw

Southern Living’s Design Network has 54 other members in 15 states.

In recent years, its 55th member has worked on projects in Florida, Connecticut and Rhode Island, while closer to home, the Wilson native’s work can be seen in New Bern, Raleigh and at River Dunes, the Southern Living-influenced development near Oriental. Scott lives at River Dunes and has plans to open the Red Rickshaw there in one of the newly constructed buildings.
