Iona Buchanan

Iona Buchanan Ltd makes a range of homewares, kitchen linens, ceramics, stationery and giclee prints based on original images by Iona Buchanan. 

The company also undertakes commissions to develop complete product ranges for retailers seeking products specific to their location or business. A number of existing products can be ‘personalised’ for specific retailers with the addition of a location or company name.

Iona Buchanan is a botanical illustrator by training and the company’s products are typified by designs that use striking, closely observed images on a large scale. 

The company also develops new products in their own right, notably the award-winning Bread Warmers, and is also developing a range of humorous cartoons.

Founded in 2017, the company works with a growing range of boutique retailers, especially in popular tourist and holiday locations, as well as garden centres. It is based a few miles north of Glasgow.  All its products, with one exception, are made in the UK. 

What are shops saying about us ?

"Beautiful British Designs have helped me discover new designers that I think I would have otherwise missed. They have gone out of their way to help me and I find them very trust worthy and efficient to work with."

Steph Proudly

"Beautiful British Designs offer a great service for an independent shop owner like me. They help me find high quality products from UK designers that I would not have usually seen. I am now stocking Penny Lindop thanks to their service."


"I've been following Beautiful British Designs for a while now and am so pleased I did so. As a retailer I'm constantly looking for new and unusual products that I might not see at the zillion trade shows I visit every year. They feature so many small and interesting designers that something always catches my eye."

"I went straight to your website and love what I see! Just setting up my shop so early days and fully stocked and good to go. But I am so glad you found me and I will be in touch with several of your designers. Really interesting stuff."

Bowline & Bunting
