I could tell you a whole story about why these lamp shades are amazing, unique and beautiful. But I’ll simplify and admit that the reason why I’m writing about them is just because they are SO my taste!! I’m in love! This kitsch retro modern fabrics just spoke to me! And what the fringes? My grandmother has one like that and I thought it was quite impossible to find something like that these days. Zoe Darlingtom makes the lamps herself, here is the story: “Sourcing the perfect vintage shade to complement the base, I strip it back revealing its elegant frame and choose a new selection of quality fabrics and trims that bring a bold mischievous edge. I maintain the integrity of every lamp by using trusted techniques that have remained unchanged for generations. The combination of traditional form and practice, and unexpected colour and pattern, creates something utterly contemporary, quintessentially British and above all, beautiful.”
