Firstly, thank you so much for visiting our website, it’s always great when new people pay us a visit! You won’t be surprised to learn that I have a passion for all things fabulous, especially fabrics and lampshades!

I’m Louise Bradley-Flack and the creative force behind CountryShades.co.uk – I was a successful milliner for many years, and always had a flair for working with materials, and coupled with my love of interior design, having studied at KLC in Chelsea, I often thought how similar hats were to lampshades – the intricate form draped in beautiful fabrics.

However, unlike hats, lampshades in general are usually large, plain objects, devoid of any individuality. This inspired me to create some lampshades of my own to escape from the mass produced, lack lustre lampshades imported by bulk into the UK.

I found that I enjoyed the process so much I started to make as many different designs as possible for gifts, and whoosh – long story short, CountryShades.co.uk was created. We now handcraft stunning, bespoke lampshades for interior designers, boutiques, yachts, restaurants, property developers and individual customers, alongside our unique limited edition range which also offers fabulous children’s lampshades and our amazing Lullaby Lamps.

So please peruse our collections, and if you need more assistance, or would like to discuss a bespoke design, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

Happy Shopping!

Dogs Trust and Animal SOS

P.S. As a huge dog/animal lover –  I’m a strong supporter of Dogs Trust and Animal SOS – therefore I give 5% of every order to these two charities which so desperately need funds to enable them to carry on their urgent support and care of abused and mistreated animals.

This, in my view makes these shades even more ‘beautiful’ as every shade could save a life!
