Mid century modern mustard table lamp
My latest collection of hand crafted lamps, shades and cushions will add Mid Century style to any space.

Using a vintage style barkcloth in period colours the latest products will appeal to both lovers of retro style and those who want to add pattern and colour to a contemporary interior.   Available in Mustard Yellow or Burnt Orange the geometric pattern makes stunning lampshades and cushions the products are made using a lovely soft, barkcloth fabric.

If you're familiar with me and my store, you'll know I love vintage and in particular Mid Century design, if you're not please explore Hunkydory to see the range of vintage inspired designs.  I know I’m not the only one whose home has a nostalgic, retro feel and I love these new designs, the mustard colour in particular reminds me of my early childhood.

The table lamps with Ash wood base retail for £78.00.  The 40cm square, cushions in textured barkcloth fabric retail for £25.00 each. The handmade drum (30cm diameter x 20cm) lampshades retail for £34.00 each.



Retro Flowers: My first collection October 11, 2015 21:11

I'm so excited to introduce my very first collection of fabrics which I've turned into fabulous cushions and lampshades, I really hope you like it too.

I really wanted this collection to reflect Hunkydory style; bright colour and a retro feel! The table lamps, cushions and lampshades ooze with nostalgia and burst with colour. The fabrics feature bold floral motifs in brilliant colours are inspired by my childhood in Scandinavia and my love of vintage design. All products are designed and made in England using a soft, textured hopsack fabric.

The collection features two key designs in complementary colours, each piece works fabulously on its own as a statement or together as a set. The Isobel Flowers design features cream flowers set against a vibrant orange red, teal blue or golden yellow background. The Martha Flowers design features a round floral motif in two colour ways; orange red and blue or teal blue and sunshine yellow against a cream background.
I wanted to keep the products affordable and so the plump 45cm square cushions are £25.00, lampshades £35.00 and table lamps with glossy ceramic base are £75.00.
All the cushions and lampshades are handmade here in England and, don't forget, there's free postage on everything.

What's The Difference Between LED And Incandescent Light Bulbs? October 2, 2015 10:56

I've been asked a few times what the difference is between the vintage style LED and the traditional incandescent light bulbs and so I've put together a simple infographic to compare the two.

I sell both varieties in store and have used both at home, initially I wasn't sure about the LED but now I'm a convert!
