Birds Eye View Hand Painted Lampshade and Base. Inspired by view of LA (pools and terracotta roofs!) from the trails above


Hand-painted linen lampshade using Farrow and Ball paint. "Birds Eye View" is inspired by the pools and terracotta roof tops you see when you look down at Los Angeles from the hiking trails above the city.

I am including the white base in the photos with this shade. It has an UNO fitting which is more and more common - They have an inner ring that slips over the socket and are held in place by the bulb. See photos for help.

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 fella!
