Designer Quick Facts: Erica

Designer Quick Facts: Erica

Paige Schnarr |


Erica is a native of Upstate New York. Having come from a family of designers and creatives, Erica’s passion for design was sparked at an early age. She is excited by fashion, bold colors, and novel solutions. 





Nickname: Smiley

Favorite Umbra product: Tie between Quench Watering Can & Magino Stool

Go-to Starbucks Order: The pink drink!

Favorite Trip You've Been on: I went to Wyoming and lived on a dude ranch for a couple of weeks. I rode horses around Yellowstone and lived the life of a cowboy. It was awesome.

Favorite Binge-worthy tv-show: Portlandia

A design trend you hope never comes back in style: Terrazzo, rose gold, and stark minimalism for sure!

Any hidden talents? Yo-yo tricks!

Favorite way to get re-inspired: There’s something about a long run outdoors that always helps me though a creative rut. It helps me clear my mind so I can start thinking clearly.





At Umbra, she is driven to create beautiful products that spark moments of joy in everyday life. Outside of design, Erica enjoys sewing, running, and oatmeal raisin cookies.
