Shady and the Lamp

Hand Made in Dublin

Inspired to create distinctive fabric lighting, Shady and the Lamp is renowned for hand making beautiful decorative lampshades.


Using time-honoured techniques we give eclectic lampshade frames an off-beat edge by combining trend-driven fabrics and directional design. Silk, Irish Linen, Tweed and Cotton are sewn or backed onto brazed frames which are bound, drafted, and lined all by hand in our Dublin based studio.


Specialists in traditional and contemporary fabric lampshade making, we endeavour to create meaningful, enduring and captivating pieces using methods unchanged for generations. Consisting of a small but dedicated team, Shady and the Lamp works exclusively with the finest materials and craftspeople because we believe in the integrity of quality – and our designs aim to reflect this.
