Summer - Limited Edition Lampshades Featuring Orchids & Humming Birds
Utopia's unique Summer lampshade design features exotic humming birds and orchids - mint green lampshade.
Enchantment Collection: Summer
Summer is an eye-catching, enchanting design inspired by the delight of summer; humming birds fly amongst exotic white orchids with a subtle background of fluffy clouds and splashes in delicate tints of mint. The shade is finished with a white linen edging ribbon. Step closer and you will find hidden treasures in the bird plumage: trails of climbing roses and colourful textiles.
The lampshade is a signed design by artist Jac Scott and is made by hand in Britain by professional manufacturers with over 25 years experience.
Only 100 shades are created from this design.
Shade shapes and sizes available in this design: empire, round & oval drums and fez.
The empire shape is a timeless elegant cone shade with steep sloping sides - great for focusing the majority of light beneath the shade.

Creating our wonderful lampshades – the narrative behind the story
Our Creative Director, artist Jac Scott, always has a camera with her to record those moments of wonder that serve as inspiration for her designs. Her photographs form the foundation of the shade designs, created using digital photo-collage and drawing techniques that build multi-layered images with distinctive features. This contemporary drawing technique maintains the hand of the artist through the digital pen and tablet.
Each design captures an original visual story with elements unfolding from every angle – expect the unexpected: for example in the bird collages: coffee beans, fossils, buttered toast, sandstone, cityscapes, plants and flowers can be found in the plumage. The designs are made into lampshades by professional shade makers with over twenty five years experience – the designs are digitally printed on parchment to create a subtly translucent effect that enriches the design elements. Each shade is then finished with a fabric edging ribbon – often contrasting to add a dynamic accent.
