We are lampshade people.
We love lampshades. In particular, the act of turning on a lampshade starts the conversation with your home, the inviting warmth, creating an ambiance for relaxation and contentment. Sometimes turning a light on is for action, for writing or reading or cooking. So much of our home life revolves around lighting. Yet lighting is an investment and never more so than now. More than ever we need our lighting to function, be efficient and create a calming atmosphere. Light is an essential requirement of a fulfilling life, yet in this energy crisis the cost of lighting our homes has never come under such scrutiny and for some a luxury.
Challenging times for lampshade lovers.
A quick goggle search for top tips for saving energy and turning the lights off comes pretty high up the list every time. We're in the mist of the harshest re-education on energy use, which we must face up to if we are to address the climate crisis, the two go hand in hand. Every time we leave a room now, its lights out. Lower the thermostat, turn off standby, sort showers, full washes. We are getting better, but sadly, no more romantic atmospheric light in the hallway over night. Our beautiful lampshades are becoming a luxury and therefore we must treat them with the respect they deserve. If their time in the limelight is to be limited then lets make that time truly special. It certainly is a challenging time for lampshades lovers.
If we limit the light we will have the COLOUR.
Colour shines whether illuminated or not. A trend in 2023 will be bright colourful lampshades to illuminate dark corners. You read it here first. Our latest designs interpret neon light weight cotton in a variety of sizes to fit a range of your vintage lamp bases.
Lampshades that frame a space
Of course the impressive other job of any decent mutli-tasking lampshade and base is to frame a space. They create height, a focal point that draws the eye. So again lets go big and lets get colourful.
