Each lampshade brings together two inspiring colours that have been carefully matched from the Little Greene Palette. They have been screen printed on the inside and out with contrasting colours inspired by Little Greene’s wall paints.
“It’s been an inspiration working with Little Greene and it’s great to apply their expert colour knowledge to one of our products”.
-Joff Casciani, Lane Creative Director.
The collaboration is an excellent example of two British brands collaborating to produce a great and beautifully styled product. The lampshade utilises entirely British materials and craftspeople.

Lane and Little Greene
Lane met Little Greene at Design Junction, London Design Week, 2013. They soon realised that their brand philosophies were very similar resulting in the collaboration.
The photography of the lampshade includes a background wall painted with a third Little Greene colour. There will be a colour matching guide available on our website soon.
The lampshades are entirely made from thick paper, avoiding the unnecessary use of plastics and metals common to most lampshades. The FSC accredited paper is made by one of the oldest mills in the country and is locally manufactured.
Lane and Little Greene support British craftsmanship by using the highest quality materials from the UK wherever possible. Little Greene’s Manchester site has been one of the oldest industrial paint-making sites in England since 1773.
Many of Little Greene Palette’s colours were originally designed with English Heritage, an organisation which protects and promotes England’s historic environment. The collaboration develops a range of colours that reference several key periods of English heritage.
