100 Days of Making - #47Custom made lampshade

I’ve just finished making this lampshade for a client, who also happens to be the fabric designer. Lynne Tanner, of Social Fabric, has a whole range of original retro designs especially for the lovers of mid century modern!! This shade is a sample that I made to test a new lighter weight fabric better suited to lampshades than her heavy weight upholstery fabrics. I give it the big thumbs up ? for making lampshades!!!

100 Days of Making - #47This shade is 40cm in diameter and 29cm high and works well on a base (the base shown is a bit small but what I had on hand for photography purposes) or as a pendant. The fabric design is called Sputnik and it would look sensational on one of our rocket lamps… just saying!!!
