Ellen Hanson Designs aims to present beautiful, thought-provoking
and authentic offerings. Our personal directive
is to think local where possible, sustainable (of course),
essential (not too gadget or gimmick obsessed), repurposed,
durable (heirlooms are so eco-wise) and hand-made (ala the slow movement). Our process is
characterized by curiosity, enthusiasm and openness to
new ways of thinking.
