I’m Alison Bick, a designer living and working in Cornwall, UK. I sell handmade designer lampshades from fabric that has been printed with my floral and coastal inspired illustrations .
I’m inspired to create my lampshade designs from stories told by my Cornish family, the hot, bold tropical colours from my childhood memories living in Vanuatu, and the shapes and patterns found in the natural world.
I apply my illustration skills to design work that really comes from my heart. Each one of my illustrations has a story behind it that is personal to me, but also a commonplace memory or shared emotion.
“If you are looking for the most beautiful, first class quality lampshades then this is the shop for you. Alison is an amazingly talented artist who makes and designs the lampshades. The designs are so attractive showing flowers and plants in a way you have never seen them before. Alison is so friendly and helpful and goes the extra mile to make sure you get what you desire. My Auricula shade had me saying ‘wow’ over and over again.” A lovely review from one of my customers!
I love to hear from my customers, who will often share with me their particular favourite flower that has special meaning to them, or their own stories of growing up beside the sea, and why they decided on a particular design when choosing a lampshade.
As Seen on BBC TV – Escape to the Country 2021 in Cornwall
In 2021 I was delighted to have been featured in an episode of BBC TV’s Escape to the Country. In the episode I am visited by the people planning to move to Cornwall, and we make lampshades together. It was a fun day of filming, and hopefully it will appear again on the BBC soon! I’ve written a blog post about my experience.
FREE SHIPPING IN THE UK
I send my designer lampshades out to their new homes in sturdy boxes, carefully wrapped in blue tissue and protected with recycled recyclable paper – no plastic involved. I usually use either Parcelforce or First Class Royal Mail, and shipping is included in the prices shown on my website. Unfortunately I don’t post outside of the UK.
