Our favorites this week
The Samarkand Story
"As inspired by the classic ‘English’ look as we are by our extensive travels across India and Africa, we have bought together a vibrant, eclectic mix of our favourite things. From lampshades handmade from vintage silk saris, beautiful and eccentric lamp bases, to suzanis, kanthas and rugs"
Vintage Sari Lampshades
One-of-a-kind statement lampshades which are handmade from repurposed Indian silk saris. Each vintage sari has been picked for its jewel-like patterns, colours and textures, reflecting the richness of India’s textile traditions.
Can't quite find what you are looking for? Or need a specific size/fitting? No worries, contact us and we will do our best to create the perfect shade. We have a beautiful selection of vintage sari's waiting!
"A stunningly beautiful lampshade"

A stunningly beautiful lampshade, delivered really quickly and extremely well packed. I love this company - I’m a bit obsessed with lampshades and have quite a few - I love them all but the three that I have from Samarkand Design really do stand out. The quality is second to none and I think they’re really reasonably priced compared to others offering similar products at this end of the market.
"A very helpful organisation"

A very helpful organisation, who supplied all the advice and information that we needed to order two matching lampshades. Ordered and delivered to Northern Ireland within 48 hours - thank you.
"Such beautiful shades!"
24th December, 22
I ordered two shades which arrived really quickly, well packaged and, most importantly, are absolutely beautiful! Both shades are in stunning silk fabrics and are so well made; I can't stop looking at them! I would definitely recommend this company. I also contacted them with a question about delivery soon after I had placed my order and received an immediate, and very helpful, response. Brilliant company - I will definitely want to buy from them again!
