Another shade has landed in NYC!.

B&V were requested to do this commission by a client stateside. At the time they had no idea of what T they would like to have transformed for the birthday lady but they knew they wanted a T-Light. We decided on sending a gift card to the recipient and letting them choose the T they would like to have made into a shade and Biggy was their choice!

It always make she smile when clients go to such lengths to ensure they give the perfect gift.

The Miami Hurricanes T-Light is now residing in New York City.

The recipient is apparently a fan of the mens basketball team and the client who commissioned the T-Light sourced the T-shirt from the states, had it shipped to the UK and once it was transformed into a shade it was then delivered back to the US by hand, by the client! A well travelled T-shirt indeed!

A shade for England.

B&V we're commissioned to make a T-Light for the Nike box at Wembley Stadium by design agency Rosie Lee. Making this T-light had it's challenges albeit very welcome ones. B&V were requested to incorporate the St George Cross detailing and to ensure that all the fineness and attention to detail that Nike had given the t-shirt were intergrated in the execution of the T-Light. Well, this has resulted in one of the most detailed T-Lights to date. The shade is accompanied by B&V's bespoke lamp stand, painted in the perfect match of navy found on the t-shirt and finished off with a red and white fabric flex.

Pixies Planet of Sound T Light commission

The making of the T-Light was easy in comparison to the challenge the client had in getting the shade to France without the recipient noticing. The T-Light was going to be presented and reside in the couples holiday home, apparently the birthday boy had no idea that the large unaccounted for box would contain his birthday surprise… Making bespoke T-Lights such as this epitomises the many reasons I love transforming loved T-Shirts into shade.

New & Lingwood, Jermyn St installation

Being asked to work on a project with such an established and well respected gentlemen's outfitters in England was considered a compliment.

The shades are made from the The Skull and Crossbones silk satin which is handmade in England, it is absolutely sumptuous and a real treat to work with.

New and Lingwood requested the lamp bases match the colour of the lining on each shade, which provides each lamp with a very individual and flamboyant presence. New and Lingwood are the epitome of British craftsmanship using traditional skills and crafting their products to sit confidently in a modern world, which is something that Belle & Vidére strive for.
