Honey beehive yellow felt lamp shadeNatural honey beehive fresh design lamp shade

For a fresh design take on the humble lampshade, we love these eco-friendly felt options.

The honey lampshade - so called as the intricate design reflects the look of a beehive – was designed by Etieene Esmenjaud for Desinature.

The lampshade is made from 100% wool felt, which is dyed with environmentally friendly inks. It’s compatiable with an E14 lamp holder and can be used with energy saving light bulbs.

When the light is on, the design of the shade creates lovely patterns around a room.

The Desinature eco felt honey lampshade is available in yellow or natural and costs £27 from Tactile Interiors.

Miss Print Saplings wallpaper design

Miss Print contemporary wall coverings MissPrint contemporary wall covering

Miss Print specialises in producing contemporary wall coverings, fabrics and other interior products and one of the designs we’re particularly fond is Saplings.

Their designs are hand drawn and take influence from nature, and that’s especially the case with Saplings, which is a characteristic leaf stem design.

The Saplings wallpaper is available in a choice of six different colours and it’s amazing how different each one of them looks – the deep turquoise blue and gold stem design is great for creating a bold, statement wall, whereas the sunflower yellow and white is quite retro in style. The pink and white wallpaper design has a playful feel to it and the metallic gold on white helps add a reflective and glam look to a room.

Whilst some of the papers are matt, others have a metallic or pearlescent finish, which helps add shine, texture and and interest to the wall.

Heal’s has the Saplings wallpaper range available, plus other MissPrint designs.

If you love the design, then there are also matching drum lampshades available too, in a classic slate grey or a uplifting sunflower yellow, both made from silk.

After we’d posted details of the Eiffel Tower letter rack yesterday, we discovered there’s a matching Eiffel Tower table lamp available too.

The Eiffel tower lamp comes complete with a black lamp shade and is a real statement piece. It’s priced at £95 from Graham and Green.

Inexpensive budget friendly flower pendant light

Flower design light shade

There are some stunning lights and light shades available, but some pieces aren’t very budget-friendly. This lovely hanging flower light shade, though, looks more expensive than it actually is.

Made from recycled polypropylene by Yorke Design, the curved petals of the water lily inspired design come in a flat pack and take a short amount of time to carefully crease and clip them together, as per the instructions.

The end result is a really effective and eye-catching light shade that looks like it cost a lot more than it actually did.

The hanging flower light is only £29.95 from Yorke Design. Definitely worth investing in!

They also do a light shade called Snow, with more ponited petals, which is £24.95.

Unusual turqouise floral stripe lampshade from Stem

Striking lampshade

Emma Armstrong, who runs Stem, specialises in making lampshades and produces some striking pieces.

This turqouise lampshade is a gorgeous colour and would look great used to add a touch of colour to a neutral or white room, or teamed with other turqouise pieces.

The outside of the lampshade is covered in a silvery fabric, with a large turquoise floral design, but what makes the lamp shade a bit more unusual is the addition of stripes of colour on the inside.

The turquoise flower and stripe lampshade is available in a variety of sizes and can be made to order. Prices start from £69 and the shade is available to purchase from Stem.
