Ella Mae Sibley Sparling

Ella is the founder of SIBLEYSPARLING. She has a passion for contemporary design and strives to create modern pieces that consist of clean lines, quality materials and a splash of colour. Material and process drive her design process and she enjoys combining materials to see how they interact with each other and the contrasts that can be formed in colour and texture. She believes that the items we surround ourselves with affect both our environment and mood and therefore hopes that her pieces are able to enhance both.
