BeauVamp is a vibrant and luxurious British lighting brand specialising in bespoke hand stitched silk lampshades combining traditional sewing techniques with vintage inspired design and contemporary style.
The concept was born at the time of the vintage revival and upcycling trends that were emerging on the interiors scene in 2010. After salvaging an old floor lamp from a second hand store, a ‘light bulb’ moment led Alice on a creative journey, breathing new life into the humble hand sewn lampshades of the early 1900’s.
With a passion for colour and interiors, Alice, founder and designer at BeauVamp, decided to build a brand that offered a completely new take on the old fashioned lampshade, drawing and designing her own new shapes from concept to completion. She now works on a wide range of domestic and commercial projects whilst launching new lighting collections and collaborations throughout the year.
“Everything we do is designed from scratch in our Derbyshire studio with meticulous attention to detail. We offer a bespoke design service with a huge colour pallet available to choose from along with all the finishing touches from fancy braids and dip dyed fringing through to vintage inspired fabric cable, pendant accessories and hand turned lamp stands. We like to source as much as we can locally, working closely with British businesses and crafts people including wood turners and metal workers.”
Our signature TIFFANY Collection was launched in 2018 showcasing a collection of lustrous handwoven silks and fringing inspired by the roaring 1920’s Art Deco era. This year we have just launched our new hand dipped Ombré Fringing Collection to further complement our lampshades.
Our Core Values:
We create exceptional and sustainable lampshade heirlooms for future generations.
We use traditional sewing techniques, our own bespoke frames and source the highest quality fabrics, braiding and fringing made and produced here in the UK.
We give meticulous attention to the detail and quality process with all our designs being made from scratch in our Derbyshire studio.
We are vintage inspired, eclectic and colour mad.
We are also ‘Proudly British’.
