About Us

The creative talent behind TMO Lighting is Helena Barrowcliff. After training in Textile Design at Central St Martin’s, Helena enjoyed a successful career in the spheres of fashion and interior design. As an interior designer, Helena’s focus was drawn to lighting. In the design process of a room, how it is lit is paramount to its beauty. Helena believes that lighting should always be interesting, inspiring and integral to the overall design of a room. Failing to find shades which fitted with that belief, she created her own and so in 2008, TMO Lighting was born.

TMO offers a unique hand-painted lampshade service. We can design and produce a hand-painted lampshade from a photo or a much loved piece of fabric. We can travel to you and help you to rework your room, in order to help you gain the maximum amount from your lighting. Our shades are designed to look beautiful with both natural and artificial light, so that your room evolves from day to night. Our shades come in a complete range of shapes and sizes, and are available with the exquisite glass bases that we source from the home of glass-making in Venice.
