Umbra

After 30 years Umbra is going strong around the globe.Their key is clever products that are original, functional, look good and are affordable.

Umbra began in 1979, when boyhood friends Paul Rowan and Les Mandelbaum joined forces to create exciting, everyday products that alter the overall aesthetic of a home, beginning with a single product: a printed window shade (umbra means 'shade' in Latin). Thirty years later, there are hundreds more products, but that same emphasis on design remains key.
