Wouldn’t you though?
When I lived near Greenwich I used to virtually press my nose up against Lush Design’s shop window and dream of the day when I had a home large enough to fill with its quirky lampshades.
When I did move, my house came with a load of recessed lights – grrr. I did snap up two Lush lampshades for my lounge however and happily for me the company has branched out into all sorts of other things. I’ve bought clocks and cushions as presents and have an expanding wish list of my own.
The quirky designs, which include women soaking in giant cups of tea and various prancing animals, are created by Marie Rodgers and Maria Livings who studied painting and printmaking together and evolved their business while working in the theatre and community arts.
They’ve recently added more ceramics to their range.
I particularly like the free standing lamps….
I reckon some of their animal designs – like the fox lampshade – would be great for kids’ bedrooms. Others for practical Christening presents.
Though Lush has only two branches, both in southeast London, when I moved to Sussex I also spotted their goodies cropping up in a few places. I got in touch and it turns out they have many Sussex stockists but their main ones are:
Appendage (36 Kensington Gardens, Brighton)….
… Little Treasures (73 High St, Hastings Old Town) and Wickle (24 High St, Lewes).
