Linda Daniel is a rebel with a cause. An avid rule-breaker and non-conformist, this fierce firecracker founded elle daniel, inc, a lampshade design firm, when she discovered there were few options to the common white shade.
An ever-classic middle child, Linda screams for attention with her whimsical, bold and eclectic designs. Inspired by Dorothy Draper’s passion for mixing colors and patterns, she magically converts a mundane area into a fresh, charming haven.
Each elle daniel shade is handmade and signed by the artist and is an extension of Linda’s natural flair to surprise and delight her clients around the world. Alongside her adorable dog Buckley, Linda creates custom lamp shades — including residential lamp shades, commercial lamp shades, and unique lamp shades as personalized gifts for weddings, anniversaries, baby showers, housewarmings, and more. She loves working with Sarasota clients as well as clients all around the world. Her custom lamp shades can be found in office buildings, restaurants, salons, boutiques, condominiums, and homes.
Linda Daniel is a Sterling Partner of the Interior Design Society and a member of the Sarasota Chapter of IDS.
