Zoë Darlington designs and makes lamps that combine tradition and wit beautifully. Inspired by old heirlooms and updated with a bold British wit, each lamp is hand made in England using techniques unchanged for generations.

Following a background in fine art and fashion, Zoë developed an interest in interiors and heritage craftsmanship. What began as a hobby turned into three years of further study and an obsession with the lost art of lampshade making. Zoë launched her lighting business in 2011.

Zoë works with the UK’s leading interior designers, has made exclusive collections for Anthropologie and Pedlars and has appeared in many publications including The Guardian, The Financial Times and Homes and Gardens. She has a new collection launching in Autumn 2015 for modern lifestyle brand Toast.
