I’m developing a new range of wall shades for 2017. I have two sizes, both suitable for existing wall fittings or surface mounted with a switched cable. They are available in a variety of colours as appliquéd paper designs or as map shades.
Here are two examples of the tall wall shade, 25cm x 25cm, it simply hangs on the wall with a switched cable that plugs into a socket, or can be attached to a conventional wall-light fitting which has a threaded lampholder using the shade’s bar-and-ring fitting.
They can be made-to-order in colours and designs to complement your room scheme from stitched and cut plant-fibre paper.
And below an example of one made using a vintage OS map (in this case Bristol), ideal for a study or student’s room where it can be hung from two picture hooks above a wall socket.
The second shape is a wide, shallow design – measuring 19cm high x 36cm wide which I trialled last year.
This too can be hung from the wall and used with a surface switched cable, or attached to a wired-in light fitting. Here are two commissioned shades for two very different interiors.
And below is the wide wall shade made using a vintage map of Durham.
Introductory prices for map shades are £65 off-the-shelf and £75 made-to-order and appliquéd shades are £80 and £95 respectively.
They will soon be available to buy online via my new website, in the meantime please feel free to email me for more information.
