I've always loved Ella Doran's innovative designs, created through photography-based images, so was delighted to see she was hosting a sample sale in her East End studio. My first ever Ella Doran purchase was a Route Master "Push Once" coaster, when I stumbled across the Shop off Brick Lane a few years ago.
The studio is located in a interesting place in Haggerston, London, behind a beautiful row of georgian houses, on a street lined with cherry blossoms.
|I love this retro record player detail on a cushion. I treated myself to the place mat!|
|I spied this Ella Doran designed plate in John Lewis a few years ago!|
|Striking graphics printed on trays|
|The pretty courtyard outside the studio with umbrellas hanging from the trees!|
|"Meadow" plate purchased at the sample sale!|
|This is one of my older Ella Doran purchases. I love the trompe d'oeil effect of the vintage plate.|
An "artistic" place mat to add to my collection! It's worth keeping an eye out for future sales, as not only are they held in a pretty courtyard and studio, with refreshments, but there is a big choice of lush end of line goodies and new designs at special prices!
