Ascot is here and with it a new range of lampshades to celebrate. Renowned lampshade specialist, A Shade Above has launched a uniquely different range of lampshades and a lamp base inspired by a love of hats and all things millinery. These bespoke shades are fully customisable and allow those that commission them to add a touch of their own personality and heritage by choosing fabric combinations and even providing their own vintage jewellery or family heirloom.
Pat Blake, the founder of A Shade Above, is to lampshades what Philip Treacy is to hats!
“I have always loved hats in old films and Cecil Beaton design and wanted to create a lampshade with lots of detail and flamboyance! The lampbase that my daughter and I designed was inspired by a hat stand and it’s a simple, elegant design, perfectly complementing the lampshade.”
It doesn’t need a bookie to recognise that these shades are heading for the winning post…
A Shade Above is nearly 30 years old and specialises in exquisite handmade bespoke lampshades for the interior design and lighting industries.
