Michèle Bayford is the founder and sole trader of Bay Design Ribbon Lampshades which she set up thirteen years ago. She brings to her business an excellent eye for detail and colour co-ordination, which skills she acquired during twenty-five years as the visual merchandiser for a large Anglo-French company, based in Hertfordshire.

Commission your own Lampshade with co-ordinating ribbon samples to individual colour schemes.

Michèle's ability to combine the rustic with the contemporary may in fact have something to do with her French heritage in that she is able to, seamlessly, bring together the soft gauzes, toiles and intricate trimmings for which the French are so renowned and the sharp, clean and contemporary lines so sought after currently on this side of the Channel. The mix is magic and allow her bespoke ribbon lampshades to work perfectly within a range of settings, whether it is a farm house, cottage, stately home, country house or city apartment within the British Isles or overseas.

Always developing new themes, finishes and colour combinations, Michèle is dedicated and enthusiastic about design and can offer innovative advice and colour guidance to suit any setting. Much of her business is repeat or through word of mouth and her client base include some major corporate enterprises as well as known individuals in the creative world, who shall here remain nameless.
