With a shared ethos of creating beautiful, tactile homewares, combining both brand’s aesthetics in the form of a lampshade collection felt like a natural fit. The limited edition collection is composed of four shades in Tori’s signature style which fit perfectly with Pooky’s unique bases.
“Our four designs are Fastnet Stripe, a classic nautical design that I was surrounded by in my childhood growing up on the West coast of Ireland; Climbing Chevy, a fun vibrant design in a lovely Radish colour inspired by my days living off Portobello Rd; Cadogan Check, a graphic monochrome design; and Seedling, a gentle yellow pattern that feels fresh and gentle,” explains Tori.
Combining the magical ambience of lighting with her fabrics was an exciting moment for Tori. “Ilove how lampshades illuminate and add an extra dimension of colour and pattern to a room. They can completely transform the feel, from a little sunny shade on a hallway table to glorious glowing shades in a living room and statement hanging pendants or even gentle easy lighting that slips into the background. They can fit into any interior scheme and using our fabrics on lampshades for the first time breathes a new and vibrant life into them.”
Pooky’s founder, Rohan Blacker, is equally pleased to see the collaboration come about. “For so long we’d appreciated Tori’s ability to bring pattern and colour into the home in a way that is accessible. Her patterns make it easy to add a touch of brightness and fun into our lives, something that certainly resonates with us here at Pooky.”
The lampshades will be available exclusively on the Pooky website in July, and they can be paired with the majority of Pooky bases.
