About Us

Beauvamp is a vibrant and luxurious British lighting brand specialising in bespoke hand-stitched silk lampshades combining traditional sewing techniques with vintage-inspired design and contemporary style. The concept was born at the time of the vintage revival and upcycling trends that were emerging on the interiors scene in 2010. After salvaging an old floor lamp from a second-hand shop, a ‘light bulb’ moment led founder Alice on a creative journey, breathing new life into the humble hand-sewn lampshades of the early 1900s.

With a passion for colour and interiors, Alice decided to build a brand that offered a completely new take on the old fashioned lampshade, drawing and designing her own shapes from concept to completion. She now works on a wide range of domestic and commercial projects whilst launching new lighting collections and collaborations throughout the year.

“Everything we do is designed from scratch in our Derbyshire studio with meticulous attention to detail. We offer a bespoke design service with a huge colour pallet available to choose from including all the finishing touches from fancy braids and dip-dyed fringing through to vintage-inspired braided cable and accessories. We like to source as much as we can locally, working closely with British craftspeople and skilled artisans including woodturners and metal workers.”

Beavamp's signature 'Tiffany' collection was launched in 2018, showcasing a collection of lustrous handwoven silks and fringing inspired by the roaring 1920’s Art Deco era; this year Alice has launched a new hand-dipped Ombré Fringing Collection to further complement her lampshades.
