ABOUT THE BRAND

Welcome to Dabney Lee, a lifestyle brand and design studio that elevates the look of everyday products with bold patterns, cheeky type and pops of vibrant color.

ABOUT THE GIRL

Dabney Lee, entrepreneur and mom to 8YO triplets!, knows first-hand that perfection doesn’t come easy but once in a while you can have the perfect day, the perfect gift or the perfect thing to say. Her namesake brand was a way to cultivate her sense of creativity by designing small ways to make each day brighter, whether you want to perk up a dinner party or make a statement with stationary. Her designs have been featured in Matchbook, Design Milk, Oprah.com, The EveryGirl and more.

Come say hello at her summer shop on Shelter Island, New York, her home away from home. The fridge is always stocked with rosé and the shelves full of fun hostess gifts and darling party supplies.

 

A few of Dabney’s favorite things…

Family, hands down.
Her grandmother GG, always the best-dressed at the table, has been a design force and inspiration in her life and for the brand, where classic prints and bold colors never fall out of style.
Her hubby and triplet girls make her laugh (if not crazy!) every day.
Good times with girlfriends, gabbing over a game of gin rummy—complete with rosé-filled crystal—comes in for a close second.
The beach, a solid third, has been a place she’ll always call home, having grown up in Southern California.

 

Bright, light, preppy and polished, Dabney takes it all in stride with humor and a cocktail.
