Here at Made by the Forge we are gearing up for exhibiting our new lighting collection at London design junction which starts on the 18th September. We have had many decisions to make and one of them has been regarding lamp shades. The photos are of shades that Chris Eckersley has designed specifically for his Highview lamps. We are not taking the wrapping paper off until the show!

Chris Eckersely has designed a stunning upright standard lamp and a curved reading light both which have lamp shades over the bulb. It was decided, after much discussion, to keep the lamp shades in a neutral colour so not to detract from the beauty of the solid iron structure he has developed. However, the beauty of covered lamp shades is that the shade can be custom made with any material, of any colour to suit anyones individual, personal style. Joanna Wallis who hand makes bespoke lamp shades offers the most beautiful options which are very dramatic depending upon your own decor.
