Samarkand Design


Founded in 2014 by friends Hilly Grumbar and Carrie Hart, Samarkand Design was born out of their combined experience from careers in costume design, theatre & film production and an invaluable shared passion for textiles & craftsmanship. By reinterpreting time-honoured skills and design with modern flair, they create pieces with the perfect balance of tradition & contemporary style, using vintage fabrics, silk sarees and artisan-dyed cottons and silks. Their collection includes beautiful lampshades made by skilled craftsmen in Devon and embroidered cushions in jewel colours. A dash of Samarkand Design’s magic touch will elevate your home in an instant.

“We wanted to design lampshades that would enhance a room, to act as a focal point just as a painting should.”
