Made to Measure Lampshades

We have created several bird prints the perfect scale for making into beautiful lampshades; our feathered friends being one of Vanessa’s passions in life! She has binoculars in her bedroom and bathroom windows ready to catch glimpses of the nesting Kestrels and Red Kites in her barn’s nesting boxes.  

Small garden birds must be the most amazing creatures…taking weeks to create the most beautiful and intricately woven nests… 

All of Vanessa’s bird fabrics will make wonderful large drum lampshades. You can choose a second fabric to line the lampshade with, maybe a coordinating spot or stripe.

Here are our bird print lampshade fabrics:

The very first bird design she created over 22 years ago now is Cockerel and Spot. This bird fabric was inspired by the hens and cockerels in her garden.

This was closely followed by Up In The Air featuring swallows flying and swooping in circles in the sky.

Dawn Chorus is a bird depicting stylised garden birds showing their delightful markings of spots and stripes. This 1950s style curtain fabric is inspired by mid-century designers such as Lucienne Day. It is possible to use these designs in both children's rooms and adult’s spaces.

The bird fabric Bird Hop was created by her younger daughter Flora; it depicts a characterful and friendly bird. She created this shape by cutting straight into a piece of paper without drawing first and this crisp spontaneous line is the result.

Songbirds fabric shows a small garden bird sitting amongst the foliage of hedgerow Dog Roses. This bird was inspired by a visit to Arbuthnott House in Scotland where Vanessa spied a very old woven silk, covering a chez-long with this beautiful black bird on it.

Branching Out and In Full Flight are two bird print fabrics which were inspired by lino cuts and printmaking. They show flying stylized birds set within a leafy trellis.

All these designs have interest and fascination for children and adults alike. The beautiful colours of these bird fabrics mean they can be used for curtains in all rooms in the house.

With made-to-measure, there is no need to compromise; you can create a unique look with your choice of fabric and those important finishing touches that will complement and co-ordinate your home. There are two shapes to choose from and several sizes. You can choose a second fabric to line the lampshade and choose a diffuser if you wish to hide the bulb.
