The Cut

The Cut. The Furniture Designer Who Used to Be Princess Diana’s Personal Shopper. By Sarah Spellings. Andrianna Shamaris has not had a linear career path. She left drama school in London to work at Ralph Lauren’s inaugural Bond Street flagship, where she was Princess Diana’s personal shopper. Then she traveled the world for several years, picking up design inspiration and antiques. She sold antiques for a while, did a collaboration with Fred Segal, then finally started her own furniture collection. Her designs use beautiful organic materials, but she specializes in wood, sometimes adding resin or stone details. She sources her wood from Sumatra where her studio is and this year started producing a collection in New York. We spoke to her about The Crown, misanthropic tendencies, and never following trends (or using the word vintage).

Forbes. How Andrianna Shamaris Went from Dressing Princess Diana to Becoming the Indiana Jones of Design.Andrianna Shamaris is the real-life Indiana Jones of the design world—and that’s not hyperbole. Evidence: the London-born, New York-based designer is leaving for a four-week trip to Sumatra to unearth petrified wood. She’ll rifle through the jungle and villages, working with (and sometimes bribing) locals, driving in a heated caravan to get her hands on these million-year-old fossilized materials. It’s a journey that sounds so cinematic, so swashbuckling that it’s no wonder why the New York Times dubbed her “The Furniture Hunter.”
