About Shirley Breed
I had been looking for something to fill the gap after completing my Open University Degree a couple of years ago, and found that I was drawn to reupholstery and fabrics. This led me to a weekend course in upholstery and a few weeks later I ended up completely refurbishing a couple of chairs from scratch. I had a small amount of material leftover and thought
that would make a lovely matching lampshade! So off I went in search of assembly materials and I've not looked back.
Fabric lampshades have taken over my life! I get so much pleasure from making them and sourcing new material that I can't stop. I find all sorts of inspiration from the smallest piece of fabric, to a dress someone might be wearing and am able to re-imagine it as a lampshade. I hope you like the shades that I make! With a lampshade from Bayleaf & Rose and a little imagination of your own, you can brighten up any room in your home!
