People we’re loving: Lee Broom

Birmingham-born designer Lee Broom proved a talented creative from a young age – starting off as a member of the Royal Shakespeare Company at the age of just 16. By 17, he had won a design contest run by the Clothes Show, off the back of which he spent 6 months interning with Vivienne Westwood in Paris. But during a fashion degree at Central St Martins he dabbled in venue styling and today his unique electric furnishings have become design icons.

And they make my heart sing, with that same modern irreverence that keeps me coming back to anything by Jimmie Martin.

Making ultra-contemporary silhouettes out of dusty vintage artefacts, Broom’s pieces nestle somewhere between seedy neon garishness and decadent nostalgia.  “Making an impact is second nature to me”, he professes, describing his work as a “desire to be more creative with furniture than is normally possible in the bar industry… ”  And it seems he is doing a pretty good job. Roman Abramovich was so blown away by his designs for Clapham’s lost Club and Chelsea’s Valmont Club (pictured below), he commissioned him to do up his box at Chelsea.
