Wrendale Designs Designer Focus.

Wrendale Designs started life on a kitchen table in the home of Hannah Dale in Melton Ross, Lincolnshire. Hannah had a diverse background including studying art at school before reading Zoology at Cambridge University and then a stint as a stockbroker in London. After marrying a Lincolnshire farmer and with a young baby, she needed to find an outlet for her artistic roots.

Inspired by the glorious Lincolnshire countryside outside her front door, Hannah started to paint hares; loving their expressive faces and wonderful personalities, these designs proved to be an immediate success. Her repertoire soon expanded and she began painting other animals.

It was then suggested to Hannah that she design some greeting cards... and Wrendale Designs was formed. Since then, the company has won numerous awards and supplies cards nationwide, as well as exporting all over the world. Wrendale also has a collaboration with Portmeirion which produces wonderful quality ceramic, textile and melamine items featuring Hannah's designs, and it has also branched out beyond cards to produce other stationery, tinware and a fab soft furnishings range.

As the business has grown, it has become very much a family affair and Hannah's husband Jack now runs the business, with a wonderful team enabling Hannah tofocus on what she enjoys most - the artwork.

In February 2020 Rita Ora launched her first interior home collection with a focus on luxurious bedding and accessories.

“I’m so excited to launch my first bedding collection. Interiors are a passion of mine and it’s been fun to be able to incorporate my favourite things into the designs. As I have a hectic schedule, I love being able to relax in beautiful bedding and the collection encapsulates luxury, style and comfort!" Rita Ora

The alluring designs include the Portobello bedding set, inspired by Rita’s admiration of marble and precious stones, which mimics the beautiful qualities of crystals, incorporating soft faded ombres on plush crinkled satin. The opulent Medina design, with chiffon ruffles edged in glistening sequins, reflects Rita’s love of jewels and sparkle, as the soft floaty feathers on the tranquil Pristina design brings her Hollywood glamour to life.

Other designs in the collection are inspired by Rita’s adoration of florals, such as the dreamy Florentina design featuring hand painted blooms in a soft pink hue and the intricately gathered satin pleats in the Tirana design, which nod to the flowing organic shapes of petals on a rose.
