If you are looking for a rural touch to refresh your home décor, take a look at Sarah Redman’s range of funky rural and farm themed lampshades that she is hand making from her hill farm, in Barrhill, in South West Scotland.

Made from a range of gorgeous, modern fabrics they will make a perfect addition to your home, or a perfect gift idea. They are hand-made, but comply with all the British Standards for Luminaries regulations, and have a professional hand rolled edge.

Sarah says: “I work in my studio situated on our busy working hill, I make my lampshades by hand, inspired by my life and surroundings. I love colour and pattern (especially repeat block patterns) and I am forever searching for new fabrics to transform into lovely lampshades.”

The new range includes the following options: blackface-blue, duck on grey, highlander-blue, hot pink tractors on light grey, pig toss, border collie, black angus – sand, chickens.

This year she will be attending many agricultural shows to showcase her lampshades.

Sarah’s is a small business and orders must be prepaid when ordering, and allow for 2/4 weeks for delivery. The lampshades come in either a lamp or ceiling fixing. For a 20cm drum is costs £30, and for the 30cm drum it is £40.

If you want to learn how to make your own lampshade, Sarah runs a series of classes, teaching the skills needed to personalise and make your own lampshade.
