When I lived in Aspen in 2002 and had my little lamp shop I was lucky to have met Kristeen Church. She is a designer who has lived and worked there for many years. There is no link to Kris, she has no website but she is one of the busiest designers working in that area.
Since 2002 I’ve had the pleasure to work with her on a project every year. We have developed together a “look” that I think is unique.
Kris designs the total house and the lampshades are the icing on the cake. All the lampshades for the table lamps and the floor lamps have the bordered cuff at the bottom and usually the have two different fabrics and two different trims.
The lampshade in the first photo is going in the kitchen on a lamp that is made from an antique teapot. The green and yellow check cotton is all fabric from Chelsea Editions and the trim is Samuel & Sons.
The six little shades are going on the kitchen chandelier. The linen is from Italy, a company called “Twill”. This is the first time I’ve used fabric from Twill and I love it. The trim is from Claremont.
This blue plaid is silk taffeta from Claremont and the trim is Samuel & Sons. This is going on a small table lamp in the master bathroom.
These oval lampshades are for a pair of bedside lamps in one of the guest bedrooms. The embroidered cotton is from Chelsea Editions and the shirred border is linen from Rose Tarlow. The trim is Samuel & Sons.
Fifteen lampshades finished…………Sixty more to make!
See you later.
