Based on the edge of the peak district, designer and illustrator Ashley Thomas is fast becoming a household name, a distinctive addition to the Designers at Debenhams family. After being discovered by the home trading team at an exhibition in Paris, the relationship blossomed immediately and in 2012 the At Home with Ashley Thomas range was launched.
Ashley's collections are feminine, quirky and patriotic, her range is all about making your house your home with sweet sentiments, colourful mix and match, vintage style prints and conversational scenes.
After graduating with a first class degree in Surface Pattern Design, Ashley Thomas launched her own brand of home accessories working from her attic in 2008. Ashley produces beautiful interior accessories and giftware from her humorous designs and whimsical illustrations. Her own brand is made in England and is exclusive to a selection of interior boutiques and galleries in the UK, Paris and Tokyo.
Her childhood has had a significant influence on her work growing up on an equestrian estate on the outskirts of London. She was always drawing as a child, especially her pets. Ashley is never without her sketchbook now and finds inspiration from all around her from the smallest detail, such as the pattern on a vintage plate or watching the busy little birds in her garden.
