Isabel Stanley Design was set up in 1998 when, after a fruitless search for colourful shades, Isabel decided to make her own. Using ribbon brought back from Guatamala and Mexico, she created the first vibrant, tactile prototype.
The striped shade was an instant hit. One of the first retailers to see the potential of the design was the Conran Shop which still sells our products today. A best seller and instantly recognisable, they are used extensively by stylists and interior designers. Specially commissioned shades adorn the interiors of Pret a Manger and many other hotels and restaurants.
Subsequent collections such as the glamourous Boudoir range, relaunched in 2007, have been inspired by Isabel's love of embroidery, textiles, fabric and haberdashary.
All our products are made in the UK and hand finished in our London studio.
