Claire came to me for a standard lamp after spending a good while perusing my website. She really liked Madge with her saturated opaque wool and long fine fringe.
However, the pink was too red toned for her room, and the shade felt a little mean in size for a standard lamp in her well proportioned room. So after looking at the photos of her living room, I sourced a gorgeous English magenta wool – milled in Lancashire – for the fabric, and wrapped in around a supersize raw copper frame. Claire loved it. Here is some of the hand stitching taking place- over 2 metres in circumference around the base!
Fine bullion fringe in shades of metallic grey completed the shade.
It stood upon one of my hand turned bases, turned by a craftsmen with 5 generations of turning in the family and then finished with British brass and textile flex.
“Zoe, we love it. Thank you so much”.
