Umbra

Umbra

Umbra is homeware design company, born over 30 years ago in Toronto. Founder Paul Rowan couldn't find a nice window shade to hang in his apartment window so he made one - people liked it. He teamed up with a childhood friend, Les Mandelbaum, and Umbra (Latin for "shade") was born. Les and Paul began re-designing everyday items into modern ware. Today, Umbra is recognized all over the world for bringing intelligent design to everyday items - at exceptional prices. An in-house team of international designers creates original design that speaks universally and personally to a broad customer base.

We've been proud to be Umbra stockists since we opened in 1999. Well-known for their contemporary and modern designs, we interviewed Matt Carr, Design Director, to find out where the design inspiration comes from and what it is really like to design home products. Read the exclusive interview here
