This is a new business having spent over 2 years developing & designing drum shades from the ground up.

The sky's the limit, ceiling the place

Satin Deep Gold Drum

This is a 70cm shade using a 1950's vintage gold satin with cleanly embroidered with a black linier motif. The inner wall is lined with a brocade fabric in delicate pale turquoise.

Italian Velvet Retro Swirl

This is one of a large range that I shall be working on over the next few months. This particular piece is a 70cm x 30cm prototype. The Italian velvet is super soft and gives a gorgeous glow when on and a sumptuous velvety sheen in daylight. 

Inner Glow Deep Flock

With a strong inner deep pink accent, this 70cm showpiece is clad with Designers Guild heavy chenille flock fabric and a vibrant Designers Guild flock wallpaper. A real statement piece with a twist.

A cost effective stylish solution to the chandelier problem

Lighting is everything. Chandeliers, stunning and elegant as they can be, are costly, heavy and require time-consuming routine care. They have been the go-to lighting centrepieces for centuries, and for good reason. With so many stunning fabrics available in the global marketplace the sky's the limit in design and can add a bit of extra zing to your interior at a fraction of the cost of a proper chandelier.

The Italian Velvet Range

Luxuriously Smooth & Silky with a Stunning Glow

Here is a selection of some of the Italian velvets that are currently in stock. 

Up close and personal

It's all in the detail

Uncompromising attention to detail and quality is at the very heart of every shade I make. There are no exceptions. 

The Nuts & Bolts of creative illusion

The Floating Diffuser

Suspended with finesse, our unique diffusers are attached by magnets via an invisible trio of adjustable wires to the top of the frame. This is a completely unique system and makes quite a difference.

Pricing & Orders

Shipping & delivery

I will deliver and fit personally within a 25 mile radius of base in Cambridge until I get too busy to do so! For larger orders I will extend this to 60 miles and further depending on size and value of order. 

Tracked delivery within the UK is at a flat rate of £5.99. This is to cover the high cost of insurance necessary in the unlikely event of damage. 

All shades are carefully packaged in bespoke made reinforced boxes with polystyrene inserts to keep contents secure from any movement.

Returns and Guarantee 

Returns and exchanges are accepted up to 14 days from delivery in only exceptional circumstances. These shades are bespoke made to order which makes it impossible to undo what is done. In cases where the item has been damaged in transit or for a valid reason hasn't met customer satisfaction then we offer a no quibble return or replacement at no cost. 

We guarantee all of our products for 1 year. This covers everything except accidental damage and/or any evidence of poor care. 

All shades and diffusers are coated to protect the fabric fibres from absorbing the build up of dirt or moisture and helps with the safe removal of dust with a clean soft damp cloth.
