Who are we?

The little sister of Studio Ashby, the London-based interior design studio, founded by Sophie Ashby.

Studio Ashby has developed a strong and loyal social following and a strong reputation amongst the design crowd for their beautiful and off-beat home interiors.

However, due to the nature of the highly bespoke interior design service provided, the Studio Ashby aesthetic has only been available to the few who have the means and time to commission a full interior renovation.

In October 2020, Studio Ashby launched Sister. Sophie and her team felt this was the perfect moment to create a retail brand selling beautifully curated and crafted household products with meaning and soul. This brand appeals to a wider audience not limited by the restrictions of its older sibling.

Sister is a chance to have fun and be playful with interiors, furniture and objects. It’s also an opportunity for fans of Studio Ashby to buy into the brand’s aesthetic in a more affordable way.

Since inception, our online presence is going from strength to strength, bolstered by recent press articles in prestigious magazines such as Architectural Digest and House & Garden.  The brand lives digitally under the @sisterbystudioashby handle on Instagram, and at

The Product

Sister’s interior and lifestyle products uphold the values of conscious consumption, playful eccentricity, craftsmanship and high-low upcycling. Products range from refurbished antique treasures to quirky, re-imagined homeware staples.

The line will continue to develop, evolve and expand over time, starting with small-scale and artisanal production.

The Future

Sister will be opening a Showroom within Studio Ashby’s new head office in May / June 2022. The showroom will be a physical representation of the brand, inviting customers into its own little world; a reimagined furniture and antiques shop full of colour and play.
