What People Are Saying
“Tress creates the illusion of randomness rather than an ordered repeat pattern to mesmerising effect."
-- Dominic Lutyens, Financial Times Writer and Author
-- Katrina Burroughs, The Sunday Times
"This Designer's creative eye as well as her passion and love of colour, pattern and print brings her textiles to life"
-- Emma Foale, EKBB Magazine
"I am delighted with the large Agra lampshade from Sian Elin. It's of a high quality and looks perfect in my spare bedroom which is painted in Farrow and Ball's Dix Blue - not an easy colour to accessorize! All aspects of customer service; subscribing to emails, website, payment and delivery at Sian Elin were brilliant. Thanks Sian!"
