i need regular shots of color and more light during these gloomy winter months, so what better way to indulge than admiring the colorful shade choices on these lamps from uk designer isabel stanley? isabel was inspired by beautiful ribbons she found on a trip to latin america ten years ago, and through her love of sewing, textiles and embroidery created her sumptuous stripe collection of shades, made of fine satin, velvet and petersham haberdashery ribbons. there are a multitude of colorways in this collection as well as the two others she produces. you can purchase the shades by themselves or with an ash or wenge wooden base for an additional fee, and everything is finished by hand in her london studio.
