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!


I’m a bit sad. One of my most gorgeous fabrics has gone out of print and I can’t get any more. I have just enough to make one last 45cm standard lampshade, like the one below.  I love this Alexander Henry fabric – it whispers ‘Quincy’ to me. It seems to encapsulate what I’m about – bold, fresh and beautiful. The ornate Japanese Odoriko dancers hold court, floating on a sky blue background, whilst cherry blossom swirls at their feet and golden flowers frame their elegance. If you want it, shout now. Or forever hold your peace.

Drum roll please! The winner of the Manky Lampshade Photo Contest is Hannah, with this sad and sorry picture of a non-lampshade. Hannah worked really hard at getting loads of votes, including changing her Facebook profile pic to her winning photo, plus pledging £10 to Children In Need AND walking down the street with the lampshade on her head if she should win!!! (I expect to see photographic proof soon.) Hannah says ‘Who would have thought you could get so passionate about lampshades!’ Who indeed! Well done Hannah. I know you are going to love your new June Song Tea Standard Lampshade.

Thanks to all those who took part. You have done a grand job in spreading the Quincy Lampshade love by sharing the contest with your family and friends on your networks. It’s all about getting the word out! So thank you!

Welcome! Tell me your thoughts.
