Peaky Blinders

 

When the Peaky Blinders gang issues a command, it's not in one's best interests to ignore such a request. Such was the case when an order came to Premier Lampshades for the television series, Peaky Blinders.

 

This actually being our second lampshade order for the Peaky Blinders series, we knew we’d done something right the first time ‘round. So, because it's never good to miss a deadline issued by the Peaky Blinders gang, even with short notice, we burned the midnight oil to complete their order flawlessly – with time to spare. So as to remain in their good graces, and all.

We put extra care into designing and crafting this second order, which included six table lamp shades and 28 chandelier and wall light clip-on lampshade fixtures, all for the latest season's period-specific set design. Because the Peaky Blinders series is set during turn of the 20th century Birmingham, England, we chose to go with our vintage styled Harlequin series of lampshades.

 

Fashioned from rich ruby red harlequin fabric and lined on the exterior, we lined the inside with our white fire retardant inner stretch lining fabric. Each lampshade was trimmed in flattering antique gold fringe, antique gold braids, and ivory cream rope braids. We added further accents in the way of an ivory cream tassel hanging from each scallop.

 

These specially handcrafted lampshades complemented the set décor of the early 1900's Victorian-era impeccably and breathed life back into historical British elegance. And that's something Premier Lampshades believes in – English heritage. That's why all of our beautiful fabric lampshades are handcrafted in our fabrication shop located in Lancashire.

England has a celebrated history, stoked in British tradition and values. Premier Lampshades proudly carries those traditions forward as we create bespoke handmade lampshades through the innovative combination of traditional and modern manufacturing techniques. We can confidently say that every handcrafted lampshade produced by Premier Lampshades is indeed one-of-a-kind because each one is assembled by the hands of a master, dedicated to his craft.

 

Much like the real Peaky Blinders gang weren’t ones to skimp when it came to quality, the production crew of the modern television series knows quality when they see it. And they routinely return to those sources who provide the best value for their money.

 

Mass-produced lampshades made with machines don't offer the same attention to detail and care that our love for classic British style allows us to provide. It is our devotion to the craft that enables us to fashion lampshades with such distinction.

 

Premier Lampshades is honoured to have been called upon by Fox Searchlight UK Ltd and the Liverpool Film Studios to play a part in the production of the Peaky Blinders television series.
