New vintage lampshades now added to the shop!

Although I love making lampshades, especially those sewn by hand the old fashioned way, there is something wonderful about a vintage lampshade. When they were fashioned, they were seen as an integral part of the interiors decor, and you were no-one if you didnt possess at least one standard lamp stand in your living room.
Standard lamps are of course perfectly designed so that the shade would direct the light up towards the ceiling and then downwards so the the person sitting below could read perfectly without eye strain. This of course was before the advent of TV! Later, when floral fabrics were being used, often the lampshade wouldn't have a lining so that the vibrancy of the design would sing out to the room.
But now there is a resurgence of all things vintage and lampshades are not being overlooked either, My bestselling item? a floral Sanderson classic lampshade to sit aloft a wooden standard lamp.
Luckily there are now a few more in stock which you will find in my shop - please take a look for a trip down memory lane and to snap up a classic.
I love this, beautiful!!!
