I really want to bring your attention to these because they are so beautiful and tactile. Map lampshades. You choose the map and I make the lampshade. Such perfect gifts, especially for those pesky men if your life who are difficult to buy for. These shades are made from genuine vintage OS maps so they feature their creases, but that just makes them all the lovelier. And the light they create is so warm and welcoming. Here’s one I made from a 1954 map of Exeter and the surrounding area, including the Exe estuary and north Devon. I loved making this – spotting all the places I know, well-travelled routes and villages I never knew existed. Available now from Malby Maps.


You can have anything you want when you go bespoke… My client wanted to light up her dining room with a huge shade (60cm diameter by 45cm high!!) for her mahogany standard lamp base using a gorgeous fabric by illustrator Heather Moore, a South African designer who runs her own label, Skinny laMinx. The result? Exactly what she wanted – a statement shade that gallops away with style!
