In 1990, award-winning British designer Ella Doran started making a name for herself with colourful coasters and placements. She showcased her innovative designs through her recognisable photography-based patterns and images. Inspired and supported by an on-going close collaboration with retailers and manufacturers, the Ella Doran portfolio grew and expanded to a wide range of homeware including mugs, cushions and journals.
Often playing on cultural icons and associations, Ella Doran’s designs are often vintage and nostalgic and she creates new designs every season by drawing inspiration from the world around her. All of her ideas are driven by her passion for colour, texture and sunlight and she insists on using high-quality materials that enhance the meaning of her designs.
