This bold, botanical, Dutch wax print patterned lampshade lifts any interior scheme. Dutch wax is a form of batik printing and the lampshade, by Onua, adds definition, contrast, and chic, neutral appeal. The repeating leaf design reads as a crisp monochrome but in fact, the ground cloth is a little softer than a pure white, much like a piece of aged parchment with a barely-there, printed, crackle-glaze effect that adds depth and interest.
The Onua brand name translates as ‘sibling’ in the ‘Twi’ Ghanaian dialect and reflects the brother/sister partnership behind the company. The Dutch wax fabric products themselves reflect the pair’s triple heritage. They were born in The Netherlands of Ghanaian parents and subsequently raised in the UK. Onua aims to convey African cultural heritage and make this accessible for western audiences, whilst at the same time emphasising the uniqueness of each separate region of that vast and vibrant continent. Their focus is to promote the artistry and traditional cloth patterns of West Africa.
These lamps would look fabulous on tall end tables either side of a sofa or flanking a bed on a pair of chests. I say chests because adequate reading light is so important when designing a bedroom and the lamp needs to be on a surface tall enough to cast sufficient light over your shoulder. We teamed the decorative shade with a simple, turned-wood lamp base to let the bold pattern really sing.
The lampshade fabric is made from 100% cotton and the PVC lining is fire retardant. The shade is available in two sizes: 21cm high x 40cm wide (shade diameter) or 18cm high x 30cm wide (shade diameter) and does not require a shade carrier (shade comes with an adjustable plastic ring that fits directly onto the bulb carrier of your table lamp base, ready to be screwed tight in place). The larger of the two sizes is illustrated in this lifestyle shot.
