Made to Measure Lampshades
My retro fruit print fabric: ‘Apples and Pears’ came from my daughter Rose’s original bold drawings, makes wonderful fruit made to measure lampshades.
I organised her beautiful drawings into a pleasing repeat and gave it hopefully a sophisticated retro feel, reminiscent of the 1950’s. My aim was to produce a fruit fabric that could be used for lampshades anywhere in the house. The fruit design is printed on a lovely 100% Linen cloth and comes in 6 colourways, from Damson pink to soft Pigeon and Clay. The cloth is woven in Scotland and printed in the UK.
The wonderful shapes and colours of fruits provide the opportunity for enticing geometric patterns. When you cut a fruit in half you see fascinating shapes of the apple core, seeds and stem. These my daughter boldly drew to create this fruit print fabric with its pleasing organic shapes.
What can we use your fruit pattern fabric for?
This fruit print is perfect for lampshades.
This design depicting Apples and Pears would suit a kitchen and dining room in particular.
Apples and Pears is the largest pattern in this collection and sit beautifully with the smaller prints of Sepals and Petals, and May Blossom. For instance, make your lampshade from the fruit pattern and cover your sofa in the May Blossom, with cushions of Sepals and Petals.
Each bespoke lampshade is beautifully made in our local workshops by professionals, hand finished with great care and attention. Our makers use traditional methods and take a 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 two shapes to choose from, empire and drum and several sizes. You can choose a second fabric to line the lampshade and choose a diffuser if you wish to hide the bulb.
