Founded by Athens born, Melina Blaxland-Horne in answer to the difficulty she had in finding the perfect lampstands, lampshades and cushions for houses she was redecorating as part of her husbands’ property development and restoration business. The ethos of Melodi Horne is to create eye catching, ready to buy quality soft furnishings of the highest standard. We offer a variety of lampshades in different colours and also a bespoke service to take the wait out of completing your home design. Melodi Horne likes to use bold, interesting colours and patterns for lampshade linings, outer covers and cushions. A lampshade should be a statement piece in any given space, it has the power to create a mood, and ambiance and colour is of paramount importance. Our unusual linen linings contrast or complement the outer fabric of the shades, are always tort and depending on the colour of the lining and the weave of the fabric on the outer cover, a different play of light can be evoked from warm to cool, filtered to defined.
For Melina, a lampstand is seen as a lady who needs a stunning hat in order to shine from the crowd and what better way if she can have a gorgeous handbag to match, which is why Melodi Horne have created matching cushions!
There are three distinct visual stories; Ikat – (silk and cotton cloth woven in Turkey and Uzbekistan), Monochcrome—in beautiful Irish linen and Nottinghill – rustic recycled hessian coffee bean bags lined with brightly coloured Irish linen. Our cushions are made out of the same material and the piping matches the linings and trimmings of the lampshades. Our labels are tucked away discreetly inside the cushion cover so that one can enjoy using the cushions from either side. Our passion is to reinvent and combine traditional aspects of design that can be used successfully in any contemporary setting. All our products are handmade, our lampshades are fabric rich which makes them a heavy and luxurious product. Our fabrics are sourced from around the world including the UK. However we are proud that the cushions and lampshades are all ‘Made in England’. We replace our Ikats every six months and bring new, fresh designs. This year we launched at Decorex, for the very first time, our new pendant lampshades and curtains with fabric pelmets, in IKAT and linen.
