Lolly and Boo are are makers of beautiful drum lampshades and specialise particularly in Peony & Sage linens. We offer a wide range of fabric designs handmade by us as straight sided or tapered drum shades. Whether it is a country, coastal or more neutral theme you are looking for, we have a wide selection!
We can also make up bespoke shades in fabric provided by you, or larger drum shades for floor lamps or ceiling lights. Or if there is a Peony & Sage fabric that you love but is not shown here, just ask as we can make lampshades in almost any of those beautiful designs! Do get in touch if you would like to ask about our bespoke service.
All of our lampshades are handmade to order so please allow some time for your order to reach you. We aim to get your order to you within 4 weeks.
The Lolly and Boo story
Lolly & Boo was born in early 2010 just after my second daughter, Alice (aka Boo), was born.
I was inspired to create a personalised picture for her bedroom and began experimenting with paper shapes. I knew I wanted to create fresh, clean designs which look simple and beautiful.
As a result, Lolly & Boo began specialising in designing and making unique, original artwork using cut out paper shapes mounted in box frames. And we have made hundreds of pictures since! They are very popular as new baby, christening or birthday gifts. Each picture is individually made and completely unique, with each shape mounted to give a beautiful overall effect.
Our ever growing collection of lampshades was added in late 2012 but took off in a completely unexpected way. It is now by far the main element of the business. A great excuse for me to indulge my love of buying beautiful fabrics – something which I can truly justify now!! We now sell a large range of designs with fabrics from Peony & Sage, Raw Xclusive, Sarah Hardaker, Katie Mosa, Milton & Manor, and many other gorgeous fabrics which have caught my eye.
In 2013 my great friend Louisa joined the business and she makes all of the tapered lampshades as well as several of the other designs we sell. Our names cause a bit of confusion but we are a super team!
We are now well known for our country inspired fabric drum lampshades and each one is handmade to order with great attention to detail, to provide the perfect finishing touch for your home.
We make standard drum lampshades in a range of sizes, as well as tapered drum lampshades in some fabrics (not all of the fabrics we use are suitable for tapered drums) to give a slightly different look.
We also offer a bespoke service so if you already have some fabric that you would like made into a lampshade, we can certainly help. You can find our contact details at the bottom of every page.
