Bespoke Shades

Sometimes a room deserves more than bland – beige shades replaced with bespoke dyed pendant and bedside lamp shades.

Beige and brash, these shades are purely functional
Ceiling shades give so much more interest and perspective, while the bedside ones are much softer and sympathetic – BUT there’s too much going on with the cushions, chair and curtains all the same busy design, so a rethink is on the cards, and that ugly black plug and wire has got to go!

Nursery Chair

This project involved creating a stripy fabric to match the colours of the nursery wallpaper and recovering a chair with a loose cover. We chose yellow, grey, red and blue stripes on a neutral background. The fabric was soft canvas from Woven Monkey, which is a sublimation dyed synthetic suitable for light upholstery. As a nursery fabric it is ideal – it is easy to launder, the colour won’t fade and there won’t be any shrinkage so the cover can be washed and replaced again and again, no matter how many little accidents happen!

Fabric designed to co ordinate with the existing wallpaper.
Here’s the chair – just a high street brand looking a little tired and needing a new lease of life in time for the new baby…
….and here’s the finished chair – the cover is loose, just held by velcro on the underside.

Bespoke Cushions
