The sky's the limit, ceiling the place
Shades by Dominic Green crafts bespoke oversized ceiling furniture designed to compliment and softly embellish your chosen space with elegance and presence.
Over two years working on design, concept and refinement using new components and techniques have allowed me to create very large statement piece drum shades covered in a huge range of fabrics.
I have also re-designed the diffuser from the bottom up. Our delicate and unobtrusive 'Floating' diffusers are suspended on a uniquely innovational adjustable wire and magnet system. Each one is delicately made with a stretched medium weight linen or a choice of hand made Japanese Washi paper to give a warm diffused glow underneath. The diffusers are generally set to hang around 4 to 5cm or so above the baseline of the shade. This allows the inside wall of the shade to show itself off too and provide a carefully balanced contrast to the outer wall and edge colour. All three suspension wires are adjustable from the top centre area of the frame to allow customer height preference flexibility.
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.

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 and online purchasing to be set up very soon. In the meantime, please use enquiry form at the bottom of this page should any of the shades pictured take your fancy. These are bespoke one-off hand crafted shades and require fabrics and dimensions to be discussed before it is possible to establish a price in line with your budget and requirements. The pre-assembly design consultancy stage is essential in ensuring the very best possible balance with the balance and colour palette of your chosen space.
For most of my 60cm and 70cm shades the price range is between £295.00 and £495.00. It all 'hangs' on value of materials and specification. I can fulfill any size in diameter between 10 and 100 cm and can work in fractions of centimeters with the height/depth dimension. Typically, the large 60cm and 70 cm ones are between 26cm and 32 cm in depth/height.
All shades come with the magnetic 'Floating' diffuser system unless otherwise specified.
