Emma Britton is the original floral glass splashback designer and founder of award winning, independent design brand, Emma Britton Decorative Glass Designer. Established in 2010, Emma specialises in designer made, decorative glass splashbacks. Her signature floral and modern patterns make the functional beautiful.  Pretty and practical glassware in her enduring aesthetic is decorated at her studio, complemented by homeware – everything is designed for modern, everyday living.

Emma’s interest in pattern on glass was born at Loughborough University. She went on to found her business after graduating in Printed Textiles and working in the glass industry, seeing the potential to create something different and previously unseen. By putting hand designed floral patterns onto glass for splashbacks, just like wallpaper or fabric, Emma revolutionised the decorative possibilities for interiors.

Emma Britton Splashback Glass Designer Studio

“I see glass as a canvas on which to apply pattern, sometimes opaque, sometimes translucent. My design style is inspired by British suburbia and I’m fascinated by 20th Century Interiors and how people decorate their homes today. Although my patterns are contemporary, they are rooted in nostalgia. ”

Emma’s splashback designs from her six collections and popular, bespoke pieces have bought colour and personality to kitchens and bathrooms across the UK and beyond for over 13 years. Her reputation is well earned since starting her business with a grant for East Midlands Graduates and her now signature ‘Foxglove’ splashback pattern.

A Designer Choice

Emma’s skill as a designer to seamlessly bring together the elements of your brief into a stunning splashback design suited to you and your room interior offers you so much more than a practical solution.

Her glass splashbacks are beautiful works of art with all the functionality you need – choose Emma for your project and consider yourself a patron of the designer, which is something really special. From a statement piece for a new kitchen to a little room refresh or to transform your bathroom, Emma’s customers are always genuinely over the moon with what she can achieve.

‘I take great pleasure in meeting so many clients and being part of their interior design process. Creating something special for them and seeing my work in such a variety of homes is so rewarding. I really enjoy designing for site-specific spaces, working directly with clients to realise their vision.”

Emma’s Design Style

The seeds of Emma’s design style can in part be found in the garden of her suburban childhood home, full of Fuchsias grown by her grandfather. She saw their shapes and textural qualities as something special, inspiring a love of architectural flowers and her slightly nostalgic  aesthetic.
