Umbra Designer Products – you may never have heard of them, or you may well already know of them and perhaps have a few of their products yourself. Either way, what is for certain is that Umbra is becoming more and more known to the population and their products look amazing on show, whether in a home, office, or other building / workspace.
Umbra is a global housewares product design company that bring thought and creativity to your standard everyday items through original design. The company have been in existence for 36 years and counting and originated from Toronto, Canada. The reason the company was first created is pretty simple – one of the two co-founders, Paul Rowan (his childhood friend Les Mandelbaum being the other co-founder) wants a window shade in his apartment at the time and just couldn’t find one so he decided to create his own. Paul was then brought in as co-founder and the business took off with them both turning everyday items into sleek, modern designs. As things stand at the present moment, the company has a team of international designers who withhold the company values and produce products that are original, modern, casual, functional and affordable, with these items being sold in over 120 countries – quite some achievement considering where it all started in 1979!
