Made to Measure Children Lampshades

Do you have any fabrics suitable for fun lampshades in children’s bedrooms?

Vanessa can still remember the fabric on her lampshade when she was a little girl.

Made to Measure Lampshades

Do you have any fabrics suitable for fun lampshades in children’s bedrooms?

Vanessa can still remember the fabric on her lampshade when she was a little girl. A baby’s colour vision is in place by 4 months, so even very small children are observant and have to time to gaze and daydream. It is important to give them pictorial fabrics to feed their wonderful, creative imaginations whilst they lie awake in bed taking in their surroundings.

Vanessa's eldest daughter, Rose, drew all the animals in the Wild  design Wild and Free, found on cave drawings and Etruscan cases, drawn during many visits to the British Museum.  If that won’t feed the imagination of little ones I’m not sure what will! Also, her younger daughter Flora, drew the fun bird for Bird Hop in the beautifully soft Smoke colourway.

‘By the Sea’ is a wonderful scene for gazing at, with people walking their dogs, sailing boats and lighthouses; my husband drew these images after a weekend visit to Mousehole in Cornwall.

These fabrics will grow with the children, they are not exclusively for ‘little people’ and you won’t have to change the lampshade as they grow up; children become very attached to the familiar. Children's bedrooms and playrooms can look really wonderful with large colourful lampshades which can brighten up and transform any children’s bedroom, playroom or nursery.

These designs are printed on beautiful linen and come in lots of gorgeous colours and for me fit the bill.

Each bespoke lampshade is beautifully made in our local workshops by professionals, and hand finished with great care and attention. Our makers use traditional methods and take real pride in what they do. 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 four shapes to choose from: Empire, Drum, Pleated, and Candle (always sold as a pair), along with several size options. You can choose a second fabric to line the lampshade; applicable to Drum Lampshades only.
