If you like the Flavia Del Pra lamps from Bodie and Fou, but didn’t like the £300 plus price tag, you may find Sam Hughes’ Vintage Fabric Lamps an acceptable alternative.
The lamp bases are simple affairs, made from chrome and laquered ash, but it is with the shades that the designer excels. Handmade from vintage fabrics, sourced at markets and vintage shops, no two shades are identical and there are only a limited number of each pattern available. Pictured here is the Multicoloured Daisies but there are a wide range of floral patterns to choose from and stock changes according to what material Sam Hughes has discovered.
The shade and base bought together costs £37 or you can buy a shade on its own for £20. Visit Sam Hughes’ website to see the current stock.
