Using crochet wool to create unique, textile lampshades, Naomi Paul’s colourful, flowing designs are available in 13 different styles, all made-to-order.

The nature of the design means light spills out evenly from all sides, creating a warm, natural light in whatever your colourway, all available via Naomi’s online store:
