Gotta Have It

Never thought they’d invent the ‘Where’s Wally’ of the lampshade world but Hill House Design have only gone and done it! Available in four sizes, two colour ways and for both pendant and lamp fittings, these stunning animal print designs are printed on linen union but you have to look closely to see the cows, sheep or pheasants beyond the attractive geometric patterns in muted ones that won’t argue with other established colour schemes.

The lampshades are made just over the border in Lincolnshire (‘buy British box’ ticked) but they’re stocked locally through Dial House Gallery, an enchanting little shop tucked off the beaten track in Kimbolton.

Only Britain’s stupidest bird would end up on a lampshade

Also worth the look at Dial House Gallery are their opulent velvet lampshades, plus there’s art to suit most budgets, interior finds and gifts, with beautiful gift-wrapping service.
