That personal Touch..

jill kirkham

Whether you’re looking to bring together a newly decorated room or breathe fresh air into an older living space, a new lampshade can be the piece that elevates the whole room. As such they shouldn’t be considered as a simple 'finishing touch', they are core to setting the right mood and ambience to your home. The very foundations of a stylish and unique room rely on picking the right lampshade.

More often than not it is the one piece that dictates the tone and feel of a room so the perfect lampshade should complement the space but not overwhelm it, drawing the eye but not to the point where it drowns out the rest of the room. It should be like the perfect party guest, interesting and engaging but not too loud or distracting and just like the perfect party guest is should interact with and draw attention to other pieces in the room rather than hogging the limelight.

A great lampshade can transform the most pedestrian of bases into a thing of great beauty. It can also tell a story. Much like when picking your cushions, it's great to pick design or pattern than lets your personality shine through. At Jill Kirkham Textiles we believe that your living space should be unique to you, a place where you are equally comfortable relaxing or entertaining. If all the pieces that make the room come together and work in harmony it makes for a stylish living space.

The quality of these shades will serve you well for years to come. In a small room or corner, they give style and character. In a larger and even in a grander setting they have the substance to enhance and accompany all different trends and tastes.

Jill Kirkham Textiles has various unique and stylish lampshades for you to choose from. They range form the classic design such as 'Black and Beige Hoops'

to more grandiose designs such as the'Gold Iron Work' lampshade that is based on the cast iron roof of the Saracen fountain.

At Jill Kirkham we have a range of lampshades that will elevate and enhance any room including our unique and stylish Glasgow collection inspired by Scotland’s largest iconic city. All products are individually screen printed and produced in our Glasgow Design Studio. Glasgow has a long tradition, and a worldwide reputation, for the style and elegance of its artists and designers, and here at Jill Kirkham we take great pride in carrying on that tradition with our range of Glasgow themed prints.

Alternatively, if you have a specific idea of what you’re looking for you can take advantage of our bespoke service and have Jill Kirkham create your own perfect piece. Express your creativity and have your own ideas professionally created.

Searching for Inspiration...

jill kirkham

When looking for inspiration at Jill Kirkham Textiles we often look to our soundings. Being fortunate enough to be based in a city as steeped in history and culture as Glasgow means we are never short of amazing influences. One of our favourite moments of inspiration came from the buildings many Glaswegians grew up in.

Glasgow stone tenements are as iconic and synonymous with Scotland’s largest city as the Duke of Wellington’s traffic cone and as familiar as the imposing presence of the Finnieston crane yet we take them for granted. We decided that we would like to celebrate these old stalwarts that form the foundation to the city.

The Victorian feel that permeates Glasgow owes much to the grey, beige and red sandstone tenemented streets that can be found right across the city. Mostly erected between mid-1800s and the early 1900s these majestic buildings have withstood the test of time far better than many other subsequent buildings and now make up some of the most sought after property in Scotland.

Tenements were and still are class-neutral ranging from the tiny, single room flat to enormous sprawling apartments. This has led to Glasgow having a more integrated community feeling than those cities whose wealthy had departed to detached houses in the suburbs. Just like good cushions the mix of style, colour and sizes of tenement fit comfortably with the many different backgrounds of Glasgow giving the city a warm and intimate quality.

Our tenements also have a heritage soaked in art and design and as the subject of many artist’s work it is not unusual to see these buildings featuring prominently in many an art store or living room. Glasgow’s best known architect and designer, Charles Rennie Mackintosh was born in a tenement in 1868 and his influence can be felt city wide even today. Chances are you or your parents grew up in one if you were fortunate enough to count Glasgow as your home city!

Jill Kirkham Textiles is very proud of our Glasgow range (see it here!), that not only draws on Glasgow’s Tenements but also on other well-known landmarks such as the Anniesland Gasworks and the Gallowgate Twins’ - a 1970s residential tower block in Glasgow's east end. All products are individually screen printed and produced in our Glasgow Design Studio.

Glasgow has a long tradition, and a worldwide reputation, for the style and elegance of its artists and designers, and here at Jill Kirkham Textiles we take great pride in carrying on that tradition with our range of Glasgow themed prints.

The Importance of Great Cushions and how to pick them!

jill kirkham

Your choice of cushions say a lot more about you and your home than you might at first think. If a person’s eyes can be considered a window into their soul, then there is an argument that your cushions have the same insight when it comes to your living space.

At Jill Kirkham we believe choosing the correct cushions can really bring a room together, giving a living space personality and depth that would be otherwise lacking. On the opposite side of the scale, boring, bland and uninspiring cushions can drag an otherwise stylish room down to their level.

Unique and stylish cushions that complement the whole room are hard to come by so when picking new ones there are a few important rules and useful tips to remember:

  • Your cushions should reflect your personality and who you are! Use them to tell a story about yourself and the space they inhabit. Prints inspired by the local landscape and iconic landmarks are fantastic for this.
  • Don’t be afraid to be bold. Cushions with different patterns in the same room can make a great statement about your living space.
  • It sounds counter-intuitive but using an odd number of pillows can really work. An odd number can give you a more stylish and contemporary finish to your living space. When arranging your cushions think of them as a family, diversity is good but make sure they all work in harmony.
  • Under no circumstances should your cushions blend into your sofa… Nothing whispers bland more than your cushions matching and getting lost in their background.
  • Size matters! A small cushion will look lost on a large sofa unless you surround it with other cushions, while over-sized cushions can suffocate a small sofa. The larger the cushion the more casual and comfy the feel of the room will be, while smaller cushions give a more stylised finish to a room.
  • Cushions should be practical as well as stylish so if you have to remove some just to sit down you’ve probably got too many!
  • Think of the bigger picture. The cushions should represent and tie in with the rest of the room in some way that compliments the whole. That doesn’t mean everything has to match, but if it relates in some way, whether that be style or palette all the better.

So there you go! Choose well and your cushions can make a great statement about you and your home, to that end we hope our advice helps you decide on that perfect purchase.

At Jill Kirkham we have a range of cushions that will elevate and enhance any room including our unique and stylish Glasgow collection inspired by Scotland’s largest iconic city. All products are individually screen printed and produced in our Glasgow Design Studio. Glasgow has a long tradition, and a worldwide reputation, for the style and elegance of its artists and designers, and here at Jill Kirkham we take great pride in carrying on that tradition with our range of Glasgow themed prints.
