I’ve been hankering after a turned wood standard lamp base that isn’t super expensive for ages. I found this Cotswold one at Scarlett Plum for £80 which is half the price I’ve seen similar elsewhere. Isn’t it nice?
Now I just need to decide what shade to pair it with.
I could go monochrome by adding these amazing black beetles shades. They match the napkins I showed you last week. These lampshades are a collaboration between Quincy Lampshades and Warbeck & Cox and cost £40.
This knitted Starlight lampshade by Betty Knitter is very cosy looking and £55 for large or £25 for a small one.
Lush Designs have created this beautiful Fox & Cubs lampshade in three colours. I’m slightly torn between the neutral shade and the more foxy red and black. A small lampshade is £31 and the larger one is £44 and you can choose between a pendant or a lamp fitting.
Maybe I could try my hand at making my own lampshade at Quincy Lampshades’s workshop in Bristol in June. It’s £28.25 so could work out cheaper than buying one.
Have you ever made a lampshade? How hard is it?
