Wan Zainal Abidin
30 years of award-winning interior design goes into each project
WaMa Designs was founded in 2009 by Wan Zainal Abidin. As a member of the British Institute of Interior Design (BIID), Wan keeps his finger on the design pulse, learning about new technologies, innovative methods and creative materials through his global network.
His passion for interior design and his belief that everybody should experience the joy of being surrounded by beautiful things has been passed down through his team, generating a unique experience for every WaMa Designs client.
A graduate of Architecture, with a major in Interior Design, Wan has been designing beautiful spaces for almost three decades. As an enthusiastic traveller, Wan will often find inspiration overseas, bringing global design trends to local spaces through his work.
It’s this pursuit of excellence that led WaMa Designs to become an award-winning interior design studio in 2020, with the receipt of an International Property Award in recognition of the public service interior design for the Pantai Jerudong Specialist Centre.
The WaMa Designs experience
We love interior design, and we want you to love it too.
Which is why each of our clients receives our full attention. You’ll start by meeting our Design Director Wan, in person, to talk through your ideas and inspirations for the project.
Wan will then connect you with one of our fully-qualified interior designers who will be leading you through the process. Each of our interior designers is mentored by Wan to ensure perfection at every single stage of the design process.
Who will your interior designer be? Well, that depends on your style! We always try to match you up with a designer that has expertise in your specific area and with a portfolio of projects that match with your own style.

“Simple yet refreshing ideas”
“WaMa Designs certainly do not do ‘ordinary’. Unique and modern comes to mind and they’ve never failed to impress me with their simple yet refreshing ideas.
They truly understand what I want and they always deliver with flying colours. Great taste is second nature to them and they have a knack of utilizing every inch of space available to create a spacious feel. Their professional and friendly nature makes the whole process a breeze. Keep up the good work.”

“Remarkable creative flair”
“WaMa did a fabulous job transforming my kitchen into a dream kitchen within the constraints of the existing structure. Wan Zainal’s creative flair and innate ability to interpret my design preferences and practical needs were remarkable.
The journey from idea to implementation was pleasurable and gratifying. Not just the kitchen, the essential elements of my living spaces were also transformed and given a fresh look through an imaginative use of materials, colour, textures and patterns. WaMa’s team of professionals were super to work with – reliable, responsible and responsive.”
