Umbra are a dynamic, forward-thinking design company hailing from Toronto, Canada. Here at Dotmaison we simply love their approach to investing home items with a unique look, modern style and reliable function. Founded in 1979, the group have continually sought to bring a high level of quality with everyday items melding with the world of art and design for a new take on homeware.
The Stealth Shelf (above) is a fine example of what Umbra are all about. Available in black or white, the shelf earns its name based on the fact that it can be installed in two different direction. Bringing about an ideal flexibility, the shelf could be used as as bookend or a complete shelf depending on your preference. Made from powder coated metal, the Stealth Shelf provides practicality and a modern precise style in one creatively composed unit.
Focusing on the bathroom, a part of the home where the company has provided many successful products, the Aquala Bathtub Caddy is another reminder of Umbra’s devotion to reliable usefulness mixed in with a lot of fun. The bamboo caddy allows relaxation at bathtime, with a confidence that comes from having everything to hand. Developed using strong bamboo, the caddy rest will not split or crack in warm water. A book rest and a drinks holder also mean that a perfect level of chilling out is always possible!
When it comes to bathrooms, Umbra have all the bases covered. The Cubiko Shower Caddy provides a great storage and convenience option for the shower room, so whether in the shower or the bath everything you need can be right there. Two shelves allow generous storage for most sized bottles, and custom “S” hooks are ideal for smaller items such as razors or combs. An accessory designed with everyday use in mind, the black shower caddy marks a durable and convenient addition to the shower room.
Umbra’s mini cubby organiser is the ideal way to keep all kinds of things in one place. Suitable for use around the home, the wood holder has different sections for keeping all of your important items in one place. The pull down hooks are great for hanging towels, coats and scarves from, while the sections are great for storing keys, books, phones and all vital everyday equipment. Available in either grey or white, the product offers a cool and stylish way to keep things organised.
