mydeco.com have interviewed Sarah Newman, the founder and designer behind DesignBark and she's so hands on with her work. We've filmed her screen print her lampshade designs in her studio and experienced the hard work, effort and money that goes into her designs. She even meticulously chooses her paints so they are of the best quality and the perfect colour, no matter what the cost. Detail is key and and she really loves what she does.
DesignBark is the product of Sarah's MA research. Whilst at Chelsea College of Art and Design she developed her skills for screen printing onto real wood veneer. Using only FSC certified suppliers, and sourcing environmentally friendly pigments wherever possible, she screen prints all of her designs by hand at her studio in South London. All manufacturing is UK based, helping to keep her carbon footprint low. DesignBark will happily undertake bespoke lampshade orders, and liaise with clients throughout the design process.
