Los Angeles Terracotta Roofs - Hand Painted Lampshade with Farrow and Ball paints


Hand-painted linen lampshade using Farrow and Ball paint. So many rooftops in Los Angeles are built with beautiful terracotta tiles and I love looking at them from the various hiking trails about the city. This design is inspired by how they cascade and flow in the sunlight.

Shade is natural linen. Dimensions - 7x13x7.8 inches
Its a spider fixture - see photos.

Add a touch of art and life to your home with this custom one of a kind lampshade, designed and hand painted in our studio in Los Angeles. Farrow and Ball paint is best in class in terms of color and beauty and is non odorous and water based and safe for our homes, families and environments.

I have always loved lights and lamps and collected them for years. I found that I was drawn to mid century Italian plastic designs of Joe Colombo and Gae Aulenti as they offered beautiful glowing art pieces. I wondered, if there was a way to bring such craft and beauty to the more common fabric lampshade. As a painter and new home owner I became ensconced in the world of interior design and noticed how a beautiful lampshade could transform a light source and a room. So, I started to experiment with different materials. After painting my home with Farrow and Ball interior paint I started to wonder how I might bring this incredible pigment and tone into lighting and started to experiment.

I hope you enjoy this little slice of LA.
