Lee Broom is one of the UK’s leading product & interior designers. Since 2007 he has released over 75 furniture and lighting products, which he designs and manufactures under his own label. A supporter of British manufacturing techniques, Broom designs and manufactures his own collections and also collaborates with leading fashion brands like Christian Louboutin.
Having started out in theatre school - a beginning which has greatly influenced the sense of drama and narrative that his collections create - Broom’s career took a change of direction after he won a fashion design competition at the age of 17. This led him to meet and then go on to work for the legendary designer Vivienne Westwood, after which he studied for a degree in fashion design at Central St Martins. Fashion is still a great source of inspiration and The Guardian commented, “Lee Broom is to furniture what Marc Jacobs or Tom Ford are to fashion.” He has won more than 20 awards including the prestigious British Designer of the Year Award in 2012 and won the British Design Award for his renowned lighting product, the ‘Crystal Bulb’ in 2013.
In April 2015 Lee Broom received a Queen’s Award for Enterprise – the UK’s highest accolade for business success. Lee Broom has been described by The Financial Times as “among the most respected British Talents”.
Most recently Lee Broom was acknowledged as one of London’s most influential people by The London Evening Standard in their Progress 1000 list 2017.
