Following on from our previous blog, ‘finding the perfect match – part one’ this takes takes us on to part two, and the intro to two new super lampshade designers.
What has also been exciting for Annie and Anna about this whole process is that we asked each designer to photograph the siphon base and shades in their own home interior. This shows the lamps in a lovely variety of interior spaces which creates a different look, mood and feel. That is what we love about interiors as it makes it each space totally different and unique…..
How we met?
Annie: We found Diane through a very dear friend who is a highly regarded and knowledgeable art collector. It has been a very exciting journey connecting with Diane and we feel especially lucky to have the opportunity to show her work and our open house is the first opportunity of seeing her work in the UK. Her beautiful images are printed onto aluminium which gives each piece another dimension as the light bounces off and the colours are reflected.
What was the trigger that got you into art?
Diane: I didn’t really get into art officially until I decided lately to show some works and share them with an audience. I didn’t describe myself as an artist. I always used material of my everyday/periods of life to make something with. It was not a premeditated production, it was more a way to be in the world.READ MORE

Having grown up in Scotland I love being able to give my little people a tiny slice of my childhood and honestly what better time to go than the autumn. The light, the colours and the huge skies completely blew me away. READ MORE
London Design Festival 2016
This week I had my work cut out enjoying everything that is happening throughout this year’s London Design Festival. It is a military operation, making sure I don’t miss out. London at its best. London is open.READ MORE
Incredible light, breathtaking scenery and plenty of exercise was the perfect tonic to reboot. Something about mountain air blows away the cobwebs and recharges the battery, giving me plenty of time to reflect and so much inspiration and energy to plan and focus on exciting new projects ahead.
