Established in 2003, the Lisa Stickley brand has become hugely successful with a stand alone store in London, mail order catalogues and collections in department stores both in the UK and internationally. A graduate of both Central Saint Martins and the Royal College of Art, Lisa’s animated dedication to her work has been apparent from the start. It was whilst undertaking an internship with the legendary textile designer Jack Lenor Larson in New York that Lisa cemented her love affair with the flea market, forming the basis of her quintessentially English style.
Over the last ten years Lisa has undertaken a number of design collaborations and consultancy work. She has joined forces with companies such as Burberry, Paul Smith, Green & Blacks, Marks & Spencer, the TATE and more recently Debenhams.
Her first diffusion line, House & Home by Lisa Stickley, launched at Debenhams in August 2010. Lisa’s specialist credentials give Debenhams’ savvy customers the design integrity they expect. The range translates Lisa Stickley’s ability to create nostalgic pieces with a contemporary twist to a high street offering that is accessible and functional. Lisa’s range consists of home essentials which demonstrate Lisa’s extraordinary use of print and colour as well as exclusive home accessories designed to add a vintage touch.
The products in this range include cushions, table linens and bedding, that have been made using the finest linens and vintage materials, hand selected by Lisa encompassing her passion for progressive prints.
Style is all about … being true to yourself and surrounding yourself with the things you love
My personal style is … simple, eclectic, honest and quirky
My collection is …nostalgic with a contemporary twist
I’m inspired by … old cookery books, Billie Holiday, doodles and piles of 1940s buttons
My must-have item is … the Posie tea pot
A woman looks great when … she smiles
A man should always … wear good shoes
My most treasured possession is …my sketchbooks
If I weren’t a designer … I would be a cook or a painter
My top tip is … to make diamonds sparkle clean them in gin
