About

Hi, I'm Katherine

I have been making lampshades since 2010.  When my son was born I had a beautiful pair of curtains made for his bedroom and couldn't find any coordinating lampshades so I decided to make them.  I found lampshade making quite addictive so started replacing all my lampshades and after filling my own house I had to start on other peoples so started Chic Shades. 

The lampshades are made in the village of Southbourne on the West Sussex and Hampshire border. Southbourne has the breathtaking south downs to the north and Chichester harbour to the south and you will see my love of countryside and nature reflected in many of my lampshades. 

Chic Shades is my dream as I can combine my love of fabrics with making homes look beautiful.  I make a number of lampshades in my favourite fabrics and also offer a bespoke service.
