‘I wanted to capture that sense of eerie charm of those dark, damp days surrounded by the endless greens that inspired me as a child’…
We released Shady’s sixth bespoke lampshade collection, Forest, this month and couldn’t be happier to showcase our new designs. Bringing to life memories of childhood visits to Irish forests and woods, the Spring 2017 collection, with five shades for standard lamps and five matching shades for table lamps, uses rich fabrics including silk dupion, velvet, and wild silk. We designed some traditionally styled frames alongside a few wittier pieces to each represent elements of our characterful landscape. Embellishing with playful monochromatic trim and tassels adds texture and brings the pieces to life.
All lampshades are made entirely by hand, using century-old methods, in Shady and the Lamp’s Dublin based studio.
