About Lee Broom

Lee Broom is one of the UK’s leading product designers and a premium global design brand. With his highly original brand of luxury furniture and lighting designs, his work is recognised and retailed across the globe. Since founding the company in 2007, he has created over 100 furniture, accessory and lighting pieces, all of which are designed, manufactured and retailed under the Lee Broom brand. He has also collaborated with many other leading global brands including Christian Louboutin, Mulberry, Bergdorf Goodman and Wedgwood. Lee Broom’s designs can be seen in hotels, restaurants and homes across the world as well as on magazine covers and in newspapers internationally. His designs are both unique yet familiar as he takes classic styles and reinterprets them in new and contemporary ways with an unexpected edge.Taking inspiration from his background in fashion design, he strives to embrace and explore new themes while keeping an overarching house style. Using the highest quality materials, combined with the latest technology, Lee Broom constantly evolves and innovates, resulting in his signature mix of classicism and modernity.

Having started out in theatre school, a beginning which has greatly influenced the sense of drama and narrative that his collections create, his 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 onto 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.”

Lee Broom has won over 30 awards to date including the prestigious British Designer of the Year Award and The Queen’s Award for Enterprise presented by Her Majesty The Queen at Buckingham Palace. Presenting his collections each year in Milan, New York and London Design Weeks, he has gained a reputation for creating conceptual dynamic installations which are surreal, experiential and always unexpected. Making design a successful global business Lee Broom’s products are retailed in over 250 stores in 50 countries around the world alongside his own flagship showrooms in London and New York.

Lee Broom has been described by The Financial Times as “Among the most respected British Talents”.
