The team are just back from a great couple of days launching Rocke at the Scottish interiors showcase. This prestigious trade show was celebrating its 10th year in the lavish surroundings of the Dunblane Hydro.
We were met with a fantastic response from interior designers who had come from all over the UK and Ireland. They loved the flexibility we can offer them – lampshades in a variety of shapes, in any size, using their own material or simply pick from our vast selection of great fabrics.
We showcased a cross section of our lampshades to highlight the diverse possibilities that we are able to provide… pendant shades with a variety of matts, metallic and fabric backings, with and without baffles – from shades only to fully customized, electrified fittings. We also displayed a small selection from our exclusive ranges of lamp bases, chic glass furniture and rustic, sustainable mango wood furniture.
Preparing for the show, we had a tough job narrowing down the fabrics for our shades as we are spoilt for choice. Particularly admired were PT’s Glencoe Galloway Heather tartan fabric, combined with their Royalty Plum atop the sculptural, antler inspired Monarch table lamp, alongside our showstopper centrepiece drum pendant fitting in Ashley Wilde Jinny platinum, backed with a stunning shiny copper metallic backing.
It was great fun to get out of the studio and talk with all our lovely new customers, and we are now raring to go and make lots and lots of lampshades from the fabulous new fabrics launched at the Scottish Interiors showcase 2017!”
